Crying Time with Hubby

Tuesday, July 1, 2008

Hubby and I just had a share of our crying time today. It's because of me, we just sat on the table for our dinner before he left for work this afternoon and while having dinner I told him about the news article I read over the internet yesterday which talked about this chinese lady who recued adopted 100 stray dogs aside from the hundreds of dogs that she already had animal shelter. Most of those 100 stray dogs came from the areas where the massive earthquake devastated China's Sichuan province in May 12th . So, I was telling hubby that some of those dogs had crippled legs due to the quake and the chinese lady and her workers just put a cart made of PVC pipes to support the hips of the crippled dogs. I told hubby that I was crying while I was reading that news article and also told him that I felt so sorry for those animals. Then, hubby told me that I have a great love for animals which made me start to cry. I looked at hubby and saw him crying too and we both cried. Every now and then hubby and I have this crying time together when we tell sad stories. Hubby will start to shed tears too when he sees me crying.

Hubby's First Taste of "Balut"

Friday, June 27, 2008

Hubby had his first taste of "balut" when we had our family trip to Las Vegas in June. The first time I went with him in Las Vegas was in March of this year and we went to this Filipino Restaurant. He loves the filipino dishes and wanted to go back again the next time we go there. He told me that the next time we go to the Filipino restaurant he would try eating "balut". he finally had his first taste of 'balut", although he only ate the yellow part of the balut and not the little chick inside but still he was proud of himself that he was able to taste it. I'm proud of him too, at first I was hesitant to let him try taste it coz I was scared his tummy would hurt but it didn't bother him at all. He said it taste pretty weird though.
"Balut" is a fertilized duck (or chicken) egg with a nearly-developed embryo inside that is boiled and eaten in the shell.

White Rose Tag

Thursday, June 26, 2008

Pretty White Rose Tag from Princess. Thanks a lot!

What does a white rose represent? White is a color symbolic of many positive things, such as marriage, purity, virtue, and innocence. White is linked to emotions of harmony and serenity. The breathtaking purity and simplistic beauty of a white rose can’t be beat. White roses signify deep, clear emotions. They are given without reservation or ambivalence. The red rose signifies lust or passion, but the white rose goes much deeper to suggest an infinite love that goes to the very core of one’s being. It carries an almost spiritual significance. White roses symbolize devotion, kindness, and deep friendship in love.

I'm passing this glittering white rose to Michelle, Ella, Arlene, Veniz and Envina.

A closer look at the moon

Monday, June 16, 2008

We had a good weather yesterday even though it's so warm and hot which I really liked. Hubby went outside into the front yard and invited me to spend sometime watching at the stars since the sky was so clear. The moon was visible also on the very clear dark sky. Hubby remembered to take our telescope outside so he could take a closer look of the sky. We looked at the moon through the telescope, it was so beautiful. I told hubby maybe we could take a photo using our digital camera and take a shot through the telescope and so we did and it worked. Take a look at what the moon looked liked when we took the photos.

The three photos above were taken using the telescope and the digital camera.

This photo of the moon was taken with just the digital camera.

"Flints" or Flintstone

Wednesday, June 4, 2008

As I said in my previous post that hubby took me to a place where we could find some "flints". These "flints" as what had been told to hubby were once used by the American Indians who dwelt in the rocky mountains of Colorado. They used these "flints" to make arrowheads and the once we found were just little pieces of these flints. We found these "flints" on the ground up in the hills shown in my previous post.

I put the 5 cents coin in the middle of the "flints" to give you an idea of their sizes.

Photos of the Grand Mesa

Tuesday, June 3, 2008

Hubby and I took a short drive to a nearby national park. We drove highway 50 and turn right off the highway and drove through the hills. Hubby wanted me to look for "flints" which are found in this particular mountain that we had been to. He was told by someone that these "flints" were little pieces of stones that were once used to make arrowheads by Indians hundreds of years ago. before we started looking for the flints hubby took some beautiful pics of the Grand Mesa.

These three photos shown here are pics of the Grand Mesa. We were on a hill overlooking this beautiful mountain Grand Mesa.

The Grand Mesa is a large geologic formation in western Colorado in the United States. The largest mesa in the world, it has an area of about 500 square miles (1300 km²) and stretches for about 40 miles (65 km) east of Grand Junction between the Colorado River and the Gunnison River, its tributary to the south. Geologically the mesa is the result of a hard volcanic basalt layer on its top. This volcanic layer, created during the birth of the modern Rocky Mountains approximately 30 million years ago, suppressed erosion compared to the surrounding sedimentary rock layers, which suffered rapid downcutting from the Colorado and the Gunnison.

Mount Garfield - Grand Junction, CO

Wednesday, May 21, 2008

I always love to see the mountains that surround the valley because they are just unusual to me. Unsual since I grew up in the Philippines where most of the mountains have plants and trees and covered with forest. But in Colorado specially here in Grand Junction most of these mountains are solid rocks and barely have plants grow on them just like Mount Garfield, it is also interesting to see that the top of this mountain is flat. I took this photo when hubby and I were driving around the valley.
Mount Garfield is found just to the north and east of Grand Junction, Colorado. It rises to an elevation just above the six thousand foot level.

Shining Rocky Mountains

Tuesday, May 20, 2008

I took this picture by the deck in our backyard. This was taken in the afternoon, when the sun is starting to set. See, how it shone into the rocky mountains? Very pretty, the rocky mountains look like they are shining. I wish I had a better camera, I could have zoomed it and took a closer shot of the glowing mountains.
