Its spooky celebration! I am strolling in the malls and many people are in costume for the scariest activity of the year. Different kinds of costumes from fairies, superheroes, angels, horror personalities, celebrities and many more persons or things to personify for this kind occasion. Though there is an office today I try to be in the occasion. I wear my black blouse with some named glitter in front and a see through back. Simple and fits for the Halloween theme. For me this kind of activity is all about fun, fun and fun. Happy Halloween!

This Sunday's Gospel

Mark 10:46-52As Jesus was leaving Jericho with his disciples and a sizable crowd, Bartimaeus, a blind man, the son of Timaeus, sat by the roadside begging. 47 On hearing that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to cry out and say, “Jesus, son of David, have pity on me.”48 And many rebuked him, telling him to be silent. But he kept calling out all the more, “Son of David, have pity on me.” 49 Jesus stopped and said, “Call him.” So they called the blind man, saying to him, “Take courage; get up, he is calling you.” 50 He threw aside his cloak, sprang up, and came to Jesus. 51 Jesus said to him in reply, “What do you want me to do for you?” The blind man replied to him, “Master, I want to see.” 52 Jesus told him, “Go your way; your faith has saved you.” Immediately he received his sight and followed him on the way. The gospel is about continued faith and hope especially on this uncertain times. Each one of us has our own times of life. God is an all loving God who will never abandoned us. Keep up the faith and trust for He cares.

I was busy last weekend on some household chores. Bad thing was my bother just recovered from flu and my sister was starting to have flu also. Most of the household things were done by me. Too tired! I checked the wall clock and found out that it was no longer functioning so I decided to bought one size double battery from a store. My brother fixed it inside the clock and now it is functioning again. The life of the battery usually lasts for two to three months. Good service anyway because it is not the rechargeable kind but the disposable one.

I am using a ladies watch on my left wrist and it come to my mind at this moment to write a post about this quality kind of timepiece. My watch is about six years already and I can say that I invested in a good kind of watch so far. For six years, the battery was just replaced last week (for the first time) since my last purchased of it. It is two toned in colors gold and silver bracelet. Elegant to use whether I am at work or at any occasion. I do not have to be protect it from moisture like rain or to exposure in the sun because the protection is made of quality metal. If given an opportunity to buy another watch, I would see to it that I have quality timepiece.

Blouse on sale

Sometimes it is fun to do some window shopping even if you do not have any intentions at all of buying. One weekend afternoon, I was able to bought a green colored ladies’ top blouse. Green is my favorite color and the blouse immediately captured my attention. It is made from a known brand and I checked out the quality and design, I was interested and it fitted well with me. I immediately bought it at a sale price. Nice to pair with fitting skiny jeans with pumps, platform shoes or wedge sandals. Now I have a reserved outfit to wear for any occasion coming up especially that Christmas time is just a few months to go.

Tempting berry lotion

I got this as a present from a family friend when she visited for a vacation. Tempting berry hydrating body lotion in lotus flower and juicy apple extracts. Good timing because I ran out of my personal lotion already. It smells fresh and clean when  I apply after a shower bath. Sexy and sweet, a great skin indulgence everyday. Thanks, thanks for the generosity of giving me this present.

Hair trim schedule

It is my schedule again for some hair trim in my favorite hair salon in the mall. Its been three months since my last haircut actually.  I am blessed with a thick and fast growing hair as almost an inch grows every month and that makes my hair longer this time. Layered cuts are ideal for my hair type. I have it cut just a few inches below my shoulder level. It is nice to feel that my hair is trimmed and blow dry  again. Manageable and bouncy.One way of keeping my mane healthy ..

Another year, another life

A special day to be truly thankful for because it is another year of life for me. Great day to celebrate God's love. Here are some nice quotes that I have read for sharing here about celebrating one's special day:

 Your birthday is a special time to celebrate the gift of "you" to the world.

You are only young once, but you can be immature for a lifetime.

If there’s something that you’re dreaming of then may it all come true, because you deserve it all…HAPPY BIRTHDAY.

Age is strictly a case of mind over matter. If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter.

Old age isn’t so bad when you consider the alternative.

Sing a song of Birthdays Full of fun and cheer And may you keep on having them For many a happy year.

Gospel reflections

 A blessed Sunday! The gospel for today  is taken from Mark 10:2-16; 
"Some Pharisees came and put him to the test with this question, “Is it right for a husband to divorce his wife?” He replied, “What law did Moses give you?” They answered, “Moses allowed us to write a certificate of dismissal in order to divorce.” Then Jesus said to them, “Moses wrote this law for you, because you are stubborn. But in the beginning of creation God made them male and female, and because of this, man has to leave father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one body. So they are no longer two but one body. Therefore let no one separate what God has joined.” When they were indoors at home, the disciples again asked him about this and he told them, “Whoever divorces his wife and marries another commits adultery against his wife, and the woman who divorces her husband and marries another also commits adultery.” People were bringing their little children to him to have him touch them, and the disciples rebuked them for this. When Jesus noticed it, he was very angry and said, “Let the children come to me and don’t stop them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child will not enter it.” Then he took the children in his arms and laying his hands on them, blessed them."  In this modern times, many couples' marriages are affected by the evil forces that caused the breakages of union. Men and women who agreed to matrimony often ended in separation which is the common problems that I often hear from friends, relatives, office mates and some people. A norm that caused a lot in the basic form of society - family.  Marriage is not something to enter to just because others are into it. For me it takes a lot of discernment and God's intervention to be with a right man or woman.

My bed comforters

I consider my bedroom as my personal sanctuary. There is a statement that I read that we are spending half of our lives in sleeping and resting. So it is important for me to  have a nice and comfortable bedroom at home. I really invested on my bed comforters years back. The comforters are type of blankets intended to keep warm especially during sleep and relaxation. I always feel rested when I am in my bedroom with these floral, fluffy and soft comforters.

drivers test from dmv cheatsheets

I have no driving skill ever since and I decide to learn such skill this time. My brand new car just arrived home the other day and I should learn to drive it immediately.  I know that the practice about driving is to enroll in an accredited driving school. It is usually five to ten days of lectures and hands on the wheel. I think this kind of learning is very time consuming because I need to spend hours everyday to be able to finished the required time. My brother told me the other day to try taking a course that offers quick and easy study guides through online practice tests. A beginner will be given some essential study guide questions, traffic signs and signals to know and requirements for getting the license. After that a drivers test from dmv cheatsheets will be given to answer and after passing it, a licensed to drive will be presented immediately.  This is interesting for me and I want to try it. I am assured that the money that I will be paying is guaranteed to give back the results that I expect. I already made reservations and my test will be scheduled on Wednesday. Driving is a good skill and a person should have a thorough know how on the entire process. It feels exciting to learn new training/experience and be able to do well on it.

Insurance payment

My brother had been waiting for the quarterly policies of his insurances. It was just this quarter that he was not able to received the papers. He requested me to called the hotline or trunk line numbers of the insurance company and I was able to talked to the customer service. They had a problem with the printing and  soon be sending policies to the plan holders. Without receiving the policies, my brother just paid one the other day which will soon be due on the fifteenth of this month. Looking forward for the time where his insurance be finally fully paid.
