I was cleaning my son’s bedroom today and as soon as I saw my husband’s boombox, I immediately remembered my boombox that the husband gave me as gift on our first Easter as lovers. I left it back home because he’s got one here that is exactly the same as mine.
I just love listening to the boombox. The sound makes me want to groove. I think the amp is what’s making it do that. I have no idea about musical instruments or accessories so pardon me. I have seen amps though like the fender excelsior. It looks very techie, but I don’t know how to use it. For sure, it brings out the best in every sound.
So anyway, I just got nostalgic for a moment. I wonder how my boombox is doing back home. I’ll have to ask mom.
I’m always so enchanted when I sit and watch and listen to my hubby play his guitar. Though not a professional musician, he’s been playing since he was a teenager and is totally self taught.
I’m always encouraging him to expand his talent and do all that fancy stuff but he says that’s impossible with the equipment he has. He told me that if I wanted to hear the best possible from him then I would need to buy boss me 25 multi-effects pedal for his guitar. I need to buy?!?! Hmmm. Methinks he’s fishing for a gift, huh?
Well, who knows? Maybe I’ll surprise him, but I’d certainly expect to hear a mushy serenade from him…(“,)
My son’s buddy was here all day Saturday and we took him home at the end of the day. It was our first time to see his house, and I really liked it. It’s not one of those big and elegant houses that you see on http://www.jacksonville-nchomesearch.com, but what I liked about it was its simplicity, neatness and coziness.
I’ve seen a lot of houses that are so nice outside, but when you step in, it disappoints you. The choice of furniture and décor are not nice and the inside is not neat. Those are just some of the characteristics that I am particular about.
Their house is small and simple outside, but the inside was so neat and cozy. I was surprised how beautiful it is inside. Kudos to her. She is a single mom, but she still manages to keep her house nice.
I’ve been talking about my Hubby who loves to play the guitar, but I think I haven’t told you about his guitar pick collection, huh?
I was surprised the first time I saw it. I was cleaning the living room when I wondered what’s inside the little jar that was sitting on top of the mantle. And yes, it was full of guitar picks. Just imagine the many years that he has been playing the guitar and he didn’t get rid of the first one that he’s got. Cool, huh?
I do wonder when he’s going to get himself a new one or buy guitar pick at GC? I will just have to wait and see.
It is our son’s birthday today, but that’s not the reason why Hubby’s coming home early. The internet guy will come by at home at 2 o’clock and he needs to be here by that time. He actually had to leave at 4 o’clock this morning just to be able to work for eight hours.
Also, he had to meet with the mechanic . Good thing, the internet guy was done with his job before 5 o’clock because the shop will close at that time.
See? It was a busy day for Hubby but he was a happy camper because everything came out right.
How lucky he is! He just became $232 million richer. I guess you know what I am talking about. Yeah, that man in NJ who won the lottery. Darn! I thought it was our time to win that. LOL.
Hubby did buy a ticket taking his chance as maybe the next big time lottery winner. Unfortunately, it was not our time yet.
For that guy in NJ, how I wish he would share his fortune with us. 1 ounce of gold will be more than enough for me. Really! Har.
Well, good luck to the rest of us next time. Let us just keep on trying. Our luck is just around the corner, I believe.
My husband hasn’t spilled the beans yet on where our summer vacation will be, but since he mentioned he wanted to go back to Charleston, South Carolina, I think that is where he is going to take us.
I already browsed on what Charleston has to offer and boy, there is a lot to see and do there. I want to ride in one of those carriages that tour visitors around the city or go horse back riding in the park, using a pair of horse riding pants (if necessary), or see their gorgeous beaches.
Darn! I am so excited just talking about this. I hope we really get to go there this summer. I am keeping my fingers crossed!
Winter is finally here after so much unseasonably warm weather over the past few weeks. The temperature dropped, there was gusty winds and we had our first snowfall. Schools were closed yesterday because of it, so, my son and I just stayed home and chilled out here at home.
But the gusty winds surely scared me. There were tornado warnings and watches yesterday in the area so who wouldn’t be anxious. The wind blew our trash bins over as well as ripping up our yard sign that says no trespassing. No biggy about that, though. The husband can go back to the yard sign printing anytime. The good thing too is, the wind didn’t blow our roof off or our entire house away! What rough weather we’ve had lately.
One week from today, my husband and I will be celebrating our second year wedding anniversary. And guess what? Being the ‘always on top of things’ man that he is, his anniversary presents for me is now sitting near the fireplace. It is in a huge bag, not to mention a pretty one. And he told me, there are four things in there.
Can you imagine the agony I am feeling? LOL. I am so excited just looking at the bag, but yeah, I couldn’t open it yet. And my husband’s teasing me about it too.
My patience will be tested on this again. Grrr… But I know I can handle this. Maybe I will just have to pretend that there is no bag near the fireplace. That will do. Teehee..
Me being one of those who are in the process of hunting a job, I can’t help but be inspired by and envy successful individuals. It makes me wish I could talk to any one of them and let him or her teach me how he or she made it to the top. I know it’s not a piece of cake getting there – it takes blood, sweat and tears, so to speak – apologies to Churchill for stealing his line.
When I read about martin hanaka today – a successful individual in the retail merchandising world, it truly makes me wish I was him. Well, I am a woman, but you know what I mean.
Ahhh, dream on, woman. Nah, I think it is better for me to start moving than just keep on dreaming, huh?
