After coming across http://www.guitarcenter.com/Martin,Guitar-Strings-Strings.gc, I remember that hubby got a new set of guitar strings from his brother last Christmas. But since then, I’ve never seen him change his guitar’s strings meaning, the new set is still intact in its package and it is just laying around here somewhere in the house.

Hubby has not played the guitar that much lately compared to his younger days. That’s probably why he hasn’t changed them yet. He probably thinks there’s no need to change the strings yet. Or maybe he has totally forgotten about the strings. You know us, sometimes when we’re caught up in a lot of things, we forget other things, most especially if it’s not on the priority list.

I will remind him later about it. Maybe all he needs is a reminder to get it done.

I don’t know what has gotten into me lately but I’ve been browsing Craigslist several times a day. It all started when this blog that I visit regularly got some of their stuff from Craigslist – some they bought and some they got for free. And you know what they did with those used stuff that they’ve got? They spruced them up by painting them and all, and the finished products were gorgeous you would not think they were actually used furniture. I thought they were brand-new. I was amazed.

I have things that I wanted to buy for the house – decors to be precise. And I’ve been checking Craigslist hoping I would see one there. One that has the fraction of a price compared to buying a brand-new one. I am constantly checking for a large wall mirror and pillar candles for the mantle.

I’ve seen some so far, but I am still continuing my search because I still haven’t had this feeling that it was what I really like. I find it fun browsing and after typing here, off to Craigslist I got again.

I am addicted, I guess! ;)

It has been raining since the moment that I got up this morning. I think I woke up hearing the raindrops starting to hit the roof at around 3 o’clock but managed to go back to sleep. It has been raining the whole day and I do wonder when it’s going to stop. I surely didn’t expect this. I thought the rain was supposed to come tomorrow. Can you say unpredictable weather?

Anyway, I was looking at the steady rain watering my plants through the bedroom window when I saw a SUV drive up and stopped in our driveway. I didn’t recognize the car so I waited to see who’s going to show up. I then saw a boy come out and when I saw what he was holding (a plastic bag), I already knew what it was – our copy of the phonebook and yellowpages for the year. They always deliver it to our doorstep but it always is a different person who delivers it every year.

I wonder how much they spent in printing all these books. And I do wonder too if they avail of the printing services nyc for all of those books. Giving every household two copies (one big and one small) and with the millions of household in the city, they spent a big amount for it, without a doubt. Well, I think I just have to stop wondering. For sure, they knew what they were doing. The most important thing is, we got a copy and we got it for free!

She turns 44. She’s old! LOL. Peace, sistah! ;)

And as usual, we were not there to grace her birthday celebration because of the thousand of miles between us. If only we could fly. It’s not Halloween yet too so, our broomsticks don’t have their power yet. Har.

It’s already late night back home so they were done with the celebration and my aunt already posted photos of the party on Facebook. She is so quick when it comes to that. The whole family was there, but more than anything, it was the food that I was excited about. LOL. I super missed the food back home, so you really can’t blame me. As if my cravings would actually be satisfied just by looking at those photos, huh? But you know what? I find happiness in looking at those food photos. Really! Weird? Maybe?

I bet my older sister (my only sister) had a great time on her birthday. Here’s wishing you more birthdays to come! xo

Summer is here and the city has a lot of activities for everybody. They always have a concert series for the entire summer which happens every Saturday night. It is called “Shindig on the Green.” I’ve seen the concert many times these past years, and it is one thing that I look forward to seeing every summer.

The show showcases not only music, but dances as well, music of the Bluegrass and country style, what my hubby calls mountain music seeing that we live in the mountains of western North Carolina. Kids and adults from different towns showcase their talents in dancing, singing and playing music which is really nice.

Have you seen those musical instruments at http://www.musiciansfriend.com/pdp-concept-series? Those are just some of the musical instruments that they use. Actually, it is in these concerts that I’ve seen different kinds of musical instruments, big and small, being played right before my very eyes. Some of them I haven’t even seen on TV before. And that’s what makes the concerts so interesting and entertaining for me.

The concert series started the new season a couple of weeks ago. We will be checking it out this Saturday if the weather permits.
