Chill in the A-I-R....

...and guess what? I'm wearing a sweater! HA! I'm sure my husband would be laughing his head off if he sees me wearing a sweater now...but I care not.'s been a pleasant couple of days around here. I think Fall received the memo already that it should be here by now and to stop procrastinating. Per our weather people on TV, highest this week will be in the mid-80s while lowest is in the low 60s. I know somebody will be the happiest because of this...his name starts with 'hus' and ends with 'band'. Incidentally, today is also Columbus Day on this side of the world. It's considered a national holiday which means federal offices are closed. With that being said, we don't normally observe regular holidays here in our household. We usually do our normal stuff on days like today. I work from home, husband has his own small business while the little one is homeschooled. We schedule our own holidays. That means we can take off anytime we want

Let There be Lights....

I think my husband has a fascination with lights. He keeps replacing the ones we have here at home. Well, he actually wants to replace every single one of them with LED. He said it will save us money in the long run so I just let him do his thing. It seems that he's not only doing it at home because I just saw him checking this morning. It seems he's also planning in replacing the lights in their shop. I've been to their shop several times and I know they have a lot of lights there so changing all of those regular lights into LEDs will save them a lot of dough I'm sure. Hopefully he'll find the ones he's looking for.

Hurricane Matthew

The last time I posted about a weather disturbance here was a few months ago when TS Colin swung by. What can I say...but the coverage for Colin's 'arrival' at that time was over the top. I don't know if that's the norm now when it comes to these kinds of things but I know it is...haha. It seems that when some kind of a weather disturbance is in the horizon the weather people just overdo it. Now comes Matthew. Well, he already came a couple of days ago. It seems Matthew made worldwide news because even my friends I haven't heard from in months emailed asking how we are doing. Well appreciated of course but I just wish they didn't have to worry about nothing. I even read in the news that a well known TV anchor went as far as saying that people will die if they don't evacuate. What? I know that a hurricane can be devastating but to go on TV saying that can just create unnecessary stress and panic...and panic they did unfortunately. Some hotels raised the

Electric Guitar

My friend's son is into playing different instruments at the moment. I remember my friend kind of forcing him to learn to play the piano when he was still very young, That's her instrument of choice but that didn't go very far because he's more interested in other instruments like the drums and electric guitar. My friend already got him a set of drum when he was younger and he now plays it with his band. He's now asking for a custom prs s2 electric guitar for his upcoming birthday. His birthday is still a few months away so my friend is doing her research as to what kind of an electric guitar she should get him. I'm trying to help her by sending her the links of different electric guitar I find online as well as some recommendations from my musician brother who knows a thing or two when it comes to electric guitar because that his instrument of choice. I just wish that one day, I'll be able to actually hear her son play both the drums and guitar in person.

Fall's a Fallin'?

It's technically Fall already...for about 2 weeks now actually. Technically only because it still feels like summer here right now. Temps are still very much in the 90s almost everyday but it's not as scorching. Thus we were able to go out a couple of weeks ago to visit a 'nature park' about an hour and a half from here. The park was a great discovery for us. Hubby was not really looking at this particular park to visit. He was looking at another attraction around the area which was suggested by someone he met in court when he was called in for a jury duty a few weeks ago. The Cedar Lakes Woods and Gardens caught his attention when he visited the site of the other attraction ~ a cave I think. Anyway, we decided to visit the garden instead of visiting the cave. We may still go and see the cave one day but I'm glad we went to the garden first. This park was an abandoned quarry. A dentist bought it and slowly worked on it for the past 23 years [still ongoing actual
