Growing



Happiness is neither virtue nor pleasure nor this thing nor that but simply growth, We are happy when we are growing.
~William Butler Yeats~


As long as you're green, you're growing. As soon as you're ripe, you start to rot.
~Ray Kroc~


Life is growth. If we stop growing, technically and spiritually, we are as good as dead.
~Morihei Ueshiba~

Start Saving For College

As a parent of a college student, I'm always looking for scholarships or grants, or websites that offer discount for books. I still have one child at home to think about saving money for college in the future.

If you haven't heard of UPromise before, you should check out this website. Sign up for free account, and whenever you shop, make sure you look for their sites in the stores to save money for your educational purpose.

Shopping online is also easy by searching for your preferred stores such as Kmart, JC Penny, Lands' End, or you can get ll bean coupons to shop at LL Beans on the internet. Whatever you can do to save for the future of your children, do it now!

Beautiful Blue Vase


Eight out of ten people will now promote the shopping trend at Thrift Stores to save money. Sometimes, you will even find unusual and beautiful treasures such as this blue vase.


For $2.50, I couldn't part with this gorgeous blue vase that had such a wonderful painting on it. I came in with a different purpose, looking for a dresser, but I came out with this gem.


It was in perfect shape, and would make a beautiful vase for some fresh flowers arrangement. Now, only if spring would come soon!

Pink and Green Heart Leaves


This is a continuation of my heart leaves, which you can see the white ones here, and the green ones here. These leaves were identified at caladium leaves.


These green and pinkish colors would be a perfect match at Christmas time.  If you are interested in planting these leaves, they are available at most garden centers at this time of the year now.


Enjoy your weekend!

Colorful Harbor


This painting was hung at an auto shop, and while waiting for my car to get serviced, it became an attraction for me to wander in my mind. The color was so vibrant and lively.


I couldn't find the artist's name on this painting, so whoever you are, you're very talented, and I was lost in this world for a while. I love this painting!

Baking Can Be Exciting If You Have The Right Teacher

Guest post of the week by Bradley Guthrie

I've always considered myself to be a great cook. It's not my profession or anything, but people have always complimented my heavily on the meals that I bake. I have even turned my family on to a lot of healthy meals as we departed from all of the fast food and fried home cooked meals over the years. I know a lot, but I have discovered that's still a lot more in the world of baking that I don't know.

I watch a show called "Rachel Allen: Bake!" on satellite TV that I got after I saw these Local DIRECTV deals in Dubuque, and I love every minute of it. Anyone that loves baking is really missing out if they have not seen! Ms. Allen transform ingredients in the kitchen. She's always cooking in such a beautiful serene kitchen. I love her enthusiam because she never seems to get bored. Rachell Allen is a reach gem for bakers!

I like the fact that the show comes on at noon. It's the perfect time to sit and watch because I usually eat at 11am. This is a good thing because I'm not hungry when I watch. I hate to watch cooking shows if I am hungry because I will usually try to start cooking something while I watch the show and mess up everything. I also miss the most important parts of the show when I do this.

Crepe Myrtle


The sign at the Belle Isle Conservatory said that these flowers are Crepe Myrtle, but then I looked them up on Google, I couldn't find any similar flowers.  The spelling even suggested as Crape Myrtle.


Both way, there are flowers that are known as Crepe Myrtle, and there are flowers that are known as Crape Myrtle. So the mystery remains, and both types of flowers come in the form of trees/shrubs.


Whatever these flowers are, they are very pretty little flowers! Enjoy your weekend..

Blue Vintage Pitcher


This was a vintage pitcher, or maybe a gravy boat, that infused with very decorative design, and was very interesting to inspect. I saw it at a thrift store, and the price was marked at $25 dollars.


I'm not a collector of vintage objects so I just snapped a couple of photos, nor was I willing to part with the money on my budget.  The saucer was glue to the pitcher which I thought was odd.  It is however, very fun to see.

Pink Gerbera


The center of the flower is also the heart of the flower, and gerbera daisy has such an amazing, fantastic, and out of this world structure!


I love looking at the heart of gerbera daisy! There were so many layers, and they look like an artful set up nestling city within the petals.


I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Reflection and Flower


This photo is linking to Photo Challenge-Reflection! I'm not quite sure what going through my son's mind, but he seemed to be in a deep contemplation. Maybe he was trying to figure out how to get the gate opened, or maybe he was just looking at all the koi fishes in the pond!


I don't know what these flowers are called, but they were beautiful to see as spring is coming closer and closer each day for us.


This year I'll make a point of learning the name of the flowers. At times though, I did try to learn the name, but by the time I have the opportunity to upload the pictures to my computer, my memory is just a blank canvas!
