Summer Wear

Yesterday, the highest temperature was 102 degrees. That's too hot for my bones. I don't even want to go out during daytime. I'd rather stay in the house and blog or watch tv. I only go out in the morning when it's not yet hot. I go out to water my garden. Then I'm in the house the rest of the day. I love to wear tank tops and shorts while inside the house. A couple of weeks ago, my hubby and I went to Target and I've seen some shirts and tank tops on sale at the juniors' section. The large size of juniors' wear fits me good. I asked my hubby to buy some for me. Sure he did and take a look at my loot.

Summer here in Texas gets too hot. It's hotter than our summer in the Philippines.

Worlds Largest Swimming Pool

If you like doing laps in the swimming pool, you might want to stock up on the energy drinks before diving in to this one.

It is more than 1,000 yards long, covers 20 acres, had a 115 ft deep end and holds 66 million gallons of water.

Yesterday the Guinness Book of Records named the vast pool beside the sea in Chile as the biggest in the world.

But if you fancy splashing out on one of your own - and you have the space to accommodate it - then beware: This one took five years to build, cost nearly 1 bill ion an d the annual maintenance bill will be 2 million.

The man-made saltwater lagoon has been attracting huge crowds to the San Alfonso del Mar resort at Algarrobo, on

Chile's southern coast, since it opened last month.

Its turquoise waters are so crystal clear that you can see the bottom even in the deep end.

It dwarfs the world's second biggest pool, the Orthlieb - nicknamed the Big Splash - in Morocco , which is a mere 150 yards long and 100 yards wide. An Olympic size pool measures some 50 yards by 25 yards.

Chile's monster pool uses a computer- controlled suction and filtration system to keep fresh seawater in permanent circulation, drawing it in from the ocean at one end and pumping it out at the other.

The sun warms the water to 26 C, nine degrees warmer than the adjoining sea.

Chilean biochemist Fernando Fischmann, whose Crystal Lagoons Corporation designed the pool, said advanced engineering meant his company could build 'an impressive artificial paradise' even in inhospitable areas.

'As l ong as we have access to unlimited seawater, we can make it work, and it causes no damage to the ocean.'

All I can say is WOW!

Colorful Flowers

I just love flowers and I love planting flowering plants. My flowers are blooming right now. They are perennials that's why they come back each year. I have day lilies, roses, ferns with white flowers, lantana, sweet william, hydrangea, canas and mums. I water them everyday and if I can't do it, I ask my hubby to water them. Flowers are so colorful and I enjoyed looking at them.

Wacky Moments

Here are some wacky moments and stolen shots during Mother's Day celebration in our house. Our friends came to visit us and we had fun eating and picture taking. There were 4 cameras and sometimes we got confused of who's taking the pictures because our photographers took photos at the same time.
Josie, me, Ann and Ging...having fun and wanting to become pregnant, lol!
My hubby is showing his belly and I'm having fun!!!
Who's got the biggest belly among these guys??
The photographers were being photographed too.
My friend Ging is hiding her beauty in the corner. My hubby took this stolen shot.
