Pink Roses

I'd like to greet Beverly of How Sweet The Sound

Happy Six Years of Pink Saturday! 

These roses are from my mother's small garden. It is so hot here, we're in the summer season in this tropical country of ours. I had to gather all of the roses a few days ago, before they wither due to heat. They smell so divine that my sister wanted to make aromatherapy oil out of them though she doesn't know how. Thank God it rained last night. There are fresh blooms this morning. 

Fresh From The Garden

Orange You Glad It's Friday

One of the perks of living in a rural area, up in the mountains, is being able to enjoy fresh produce day in and day out. Yesterday (or was it the other day) one of the neighbors brought us some fresh tomatoes from her garden. 

Have a great weekend, everyone!

A Peek at Caliraya Resort Club

My hubby and his office mates from his old company had their team building in Caliraya Resort Club twice in the past couple of years. Caliraya Resort Club is located in the Lumban, Laguna in the shoreline of the man-made Caliraya Lake.

I was delighted to see this photo of the House of Prayers which is located inside the resort. I'm glad to know that in this place for sports and recreation, there's a special left for meditation and prayers.  

House of Prayers
My husband had a great time in the two occasions he's been at Caliraya, mostly due to the camaraderie he shared with his group and also because of the different activities the resort has to offer, from water sports to horseback riding, to table games and even earth ball. One has just to look at this map to know that the resort offers so many amenities and activities for attendees of team building and other special events.

Once he had dropped off  the bag he had packed for the team building, off he went walking and  wandering around the resort, running down hilly terrains and just enjoying the natural environment and breathing the fresh air.  How I wish I was there, even once, lol. :) 

For wall climbers?
I find these houses/cottages interesting. Hubby said maybe their for club members or maybe they're individuals, not group or company. 

Houses/individual cottages for members?
Oh, at last, some flowers!

I'm happy that my husband enjoyed their stay in Caliraya. It's not every day that he gets immersed with nature and all these beautiful greenery. 

Some day, in another life, I want to go horseback riding. Wishful thinking, my slipped disc won't allow me to ride a horse. But still they're beautiful creatures aren't they?

The orange in this photo is dedicated to Orange You Glad It's Friday. This suddenly reminded me that my hubby is in need of a bigger and more durable bag that he could use for his out of town trips. I looked online and found that The North Face has the perfect bag that I’ve been looking for. I will probably order this online through Zalora Philippines so as to avoid the hassle of going to the mall. If you’re on the lookout for good quality bags, Zalora has a big collection for you to choose from, so you might want to check it out.

So I found so many H words today. I hope my friends at ABC Wednesday are happy. If you're hoping to know more H words please don't forget to drop by at ABC Wednesday. 

Beautify Your Home and Find Inspiration From Wall Decals

Wall decals and removable wall stickers are becoming very popular these days. I have been seeing a lot of good reviews about wall decals beautifying homes. Not only are they there to beautify our walls, we can find inspirations from these wall decals, too. When you go, for example at the DecDecal site, you would see these inspiring wall quotes:

These could be the same thoughts you'd want written on your wall, to remind you that life is wonderful and that all you need to do is live, laugh and love. 

DecDecals have all types of  Viny Wall Art, categorized according to room types, by wall quotes, and by nursery and kids stickers. Being a mom, I am partial to the nursery and kids stickers, but for today, I am tying to find inspirations and some uplifting thoughts through these wall stickers. 

I would specially love to see this quotes on my laundry room, just to bring a smile before I set forth in the unimaginable task of getting all my laundry washed and folded:

And for the inner child in me, I especially love this Vinyl Wall Art . I can imagine this on our wall. I'm sure it will bring me a lot of happy thoughts everytime I see it. The kids would love it, too.

If you're looking for wall decals, I would recommend DecDecals. As you can see, the designs are impressive and the wall decals are cut from high-quality vinyl. It's very easy to navigate the site, and you have a lot of designs to choose from. They have free shipping for orders over 50$ and lots of discounted items for sale at this time of the year. One thing I noticed also is that they have a "Send us a message" box right at the front page, so it wouldn't be hard to contact them for questions on the items or questions about your order. I recommend visiting their site and see for yourself. You'll fall in love with the selections. 

Which of the wall decals above do you like the most?

Tiny #fmsphotoaday

Tiny is the word for today's #fmsphotoaday challenge.

 I don't know what this insect is called. But I'm happy the kids and I discovered it earlier resting in our aloe vera plant. I haven't seen this insect for the longest time, but when I was a child growing up in the 'mountains', I used to see a lot of this. So seeing this insect brought back waves of happy memories of early childhood.

Finally, I have a few hours of rest from work and I'm using these hours to make a post about today's Photo-A-Day Challenge. I've missed so many days already, and it seems I've failed the challenge. But I've decided to just follow the prompt during the days that I can make a post. No need to pressure myself with this as it defeats the whole purpose. I've got enough pressure already at work and at home, and I'll just enjoy these moments when I can make a post about anything not related to work. 

I hope everyone's having  a great day. TGIF! Happy weekend, everyone.
