It's a beautiful day today because the Lord has made it! What a pleasant day to see all the plants and trees so green and also my vegetables are thriving. I got lots of tomatoes now in my backyard garden and I will harvest them soon. My squash have lots of flowers now and also my cantaloupes, string beans, and bitter melon. I already harvested a couple of my eggplants and cooked them with eggs. My hubby love it. Sometimes while I'm tending to my veggies, I talked to them to yield more fruits. My lettuce are now growing, also my broccoli, cucumbers, bell peppers, collards, radish and carrots. I'm glad that my labor of love for my veggies did not go in vain.

Writing is one of my interests and I just want to write my thoughts and ideas. Also I love surfing the internet and I found this site so I just started this blog. Actually, I have another blog in another site and this is my second blog site. I am just having fun blogging and I just want to try this site. Blogging is a good way to communicate with my friends and kins. They will learn more about me, and also they will know my ideas and opinions. Since I'm away from my native land for almost four years now, I miss my family so much. So in order not to think of them most of the time and become lonesome, I have to have an outlet and one of them is blogging. Yes, blogging... My sister and my friends read my blog and I keep them posted with the latest news, travels and escapades of my husband and I. They've been enjoying reading my blog too. So I just keep writing and blogging...

I woke up today and it's not raining. The sky is cloudy and gloomy though. I went to see my plants yesterday afternoon and I found out that the lettuce, collards, radishes and carrots were all bowed down on the ground and their leaves were covered with soil. We really got a lot of rain this time and according to the news, it's the first time in seven years that the lakes here are full of water. Rain is good for the plants and the trees but too much of it is not. There were some areas in Texas and Oklahoma that got flooded lately because of hard rain.

It's been raining hard today. Compared to last year, this summer is a lot better because we have more rain. Last year was so hot and dry. Our pecan trees did not make any pecans at all last year because of the heat. We're hoping that we will harvest more pecans this year. According to the news, we have 70% chance of rain this week and next week will be back to summer temperature. We haven't hit 100's yet and I hope it will stay this way all summer long. It would be nice as we're planning to go to Six Flags.

Summer had just started and I hope and pray that this summer will be a lot better than last year. It was sooo hot last year and the temperature was mostly in the 3 digit mark. Oh my! that was the hottest summer since I've been here in Texas. Most of the states here in the US had a heat wave last year. Even during evenings when the sun had already set, it was still hot. Gosh! The heat penetrated in my skin that's why I didn't want to go out during summer last year. I stayed in the house most of the time. My hubby was the one buying groceries because I didn't want to go out. Who wants to get sunburn and sweat?
