My husband warned me not to cut my hair without consulting him first. This day, I did not! I just took him to the bathroom and showed this "mess" and when he looked at me, he gave me an approval. He loves my hair style now. To all the women, do not attempt to follow my decision. Some men truly are serious when they say about your hair. Ask the opinion of your husband to avoid arguments, okay? OH yes! I am blessed with a loving and supportive husband. And I thank God for that.

This is a lily and it smells really good.I remember back in the Philippines, this plant just grow on the river banks. My mother used to plant Roses and I asked her lately if the tall Rose plant is still alive. Nope! It died because it grows as tall as 15 ft and Roses kept blooming. We don't buy flowers for the altar anymore.
Some of our neighbors would asked one or two and we gave them also.
This is Azalea Shrub and this usually bloom in springtime. The beautiful flowers won't last long though. Did you know that Azalea is also the flower of the astrology symbol Sagittarius? Now we know.Anyway, as long as it is a Rose, no matter what color, I love it.
Here is another Rose but, color pink and when it bloom fully it is so huge.
I will landscape the space of Rose area near the entrance this week and I am excited to do my task already.

That situation will likely to happen in our place if we do not conserve water and energy. Each one of us should do our share to save water and by doing such, we save our money too. Eco living, green lifestyle and go for green are just few of the community campaigns which gives us awareness to protect Mother Earth.
By being aware, it would mean our participation that starts from our own home. By telling the members of our family to close the faucet when not in use is an initial step to save water. If you are using Dual Flush Toilets then, you eventually lower your water consumption. Your family can save extra money too. Do these things and you can live a healthy lifestyle with a healthy wallet too.

Here we are crossing the street towards French Quarter.
One of the street shows which is common in French Quarter. If you are sitted as an audience, you will see the Catholic Church at the front. See the huge green mascot at the left? Beside the guy who wore pink? He kept waving at me to come near him. I did not! I wanted to take a picture with him but, in French Quarter? There are crazy activities going on. There is a possibility that he will ask a donation once I took the picture. That happened to our companion LOL!
Signage for French Market, truly historic.

It was Tuesday when three of our friends from Orlando visited Mississippi and came to see us. They stayed at Hard Rock and the whole time, we were with them. We showed them the city of Ocean Springs and Biloxi. We let them try crabbing and we went fishing Thursday afternoon. During lunchtime, we had a good time having a picnic at Fort Maurepas. At night time, we went for a casino hopping. We even went to the farthest casinos Island View and Treasure Bay. By Friday, we went to New Orleans, Louisiana because everyone wanted to visit the French Quarter and dine in Cafe du Monde. We stop by at Pat O'Briens bar and have a little drink. We then went to Market Cafe and have our dinner. They went shopping but, my husband and I wanted to play at Harrah's Casino so; we decided to met them there.
Actually, it was only hubby who played the slot machines while I stayed in Starbucks. We were so exhausted when we travel home and planned to drop by at Beau Rivage Casino.
Phone rang and it was my sis in law informing us that FIL had a bad fall on a ditch. She brought him to emergency room (hospital is just 5 minutes away) and he was doing okay when we arrived home
We left our friends in Hard Rock that night with full of memories. We will be going to Destin this week but no over night stay.
Divine Mercy devotion which is known today can be traced to a Polish nun and canonized saint, Sister Faustyna Kowalska. Just this week though, a tragic plane crash accident happened which ended the lives of 92 high ranking officials in Poland. Polish President Lech Kaczynski and his wife were among the casualty. This accident was believed to be the worst disaster in Poland since WWII. Today, is a day of mourning in Poland and the whole world join in prayers for the eternal repose of their soul. God's mercy will not be turned away from them.
Ten years ago, Pope John Paul II officially instituted the Feast of the Divine Mercy universally for the Catholic Church. It is done on the same day that he canonized St. Faustina. The Divine Mercy is also recognized and celebrated by the Universal Anglican Church and adapted the chaplet and the rosary.
The Image Symbolizes: Blood and Water
Paint an image according to the pattern you see, with the signature: Jesus I trust in You. I desire that this image be venerated, first in your chapel, and throughout the world. (Diary 47) -
I promise that the soul that will venerate this image will not perish. I also promise victory over its enemies already here on earth, especially at the hour of death. I myself will defend it as My own glory. (Diary 48) -
I am offering people a vessel with which they are to keep coming for graces to the fountain of mercy. That vessel is this image with the signature" :Jesus, I trust in You." (Diary 327) -
The two rays denote Blood and Water. the pale ray stands for the Water which makes souls righteous. The red ray stands for the Blood which is the life of souls. These two rays issued forth from the very depths of My tender mercy when My agonized heart was opened by a lance on the Cross. These rays shield souls from the wrath of My Father. Happy is the one who dwell in their shelter, for the just hand of God shall not lay hold of him. (Diary 299) -
Not in the beauty of the color, nor of the brush, lies the greatness of this image, but in My grace. (Diary 313) -
By means of this image I shall grant many graces to souls. It is to be a reminder of the demands of My mercy, because even the strongest faith is of no avail without works. (Diary 742) -
Jesus, We trust in You!

Wow, he caught one blue crab, amazing!
A happy face of an aspiring fisherman, LOL!
Such a beaotiful place to visit huh? Visit Ocean Springs and Biloxi, Mississippi to enjoy this wonderful view by the beach.
If you want a good restaurant to have your meals without leaving the area, Harbor Landing is a good place to hang out. The view from this deck is truly amazing!

Here is the plant, it is like 3ft tall and blooming with flowers.
On the right side, the center of our front yard is my little circular flower spot. Some of the flowers survived the winter and it is blooming. I took this picture just now, thanks to the clever innovation of technology.
This week, I just decided to landscape this portion using curve with arch bricks design. I only use 36 pieces and hey, you can buy it at Walmart with unbeatable price.
Well, I am not done planting as you can see some part of it is still bare. I will be posting pictures as it progress. Thanks for dropping by everyone. Happy Easter!

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Hiltons of Branson. All opinions are 100% mine.
Are you planning for a spring break vacation with your family? I recommend that you visit Branson, Missouri and stay in the luxurious rooms of Hilton Promenade at Branson Landing or in Hilton Branson Convention Center. The majestic and beautiful scenery of the river banks, lakes and golf course which are located nearby would entice your vacation moments. My cousin told me that the activities and entertainment in Branson is endless. If you love shopping, dining and enjoy a relaxing spa, Branson has all that for you. As my cousin showed me their pictures while staying at Branson, I was really excited to see the beautiful places that they have been.I would probably visit the museums and theme parks because they have so much fun in these places. Since Branson is the entertainment capital in Midwest, I am not really shock to know that Branson has 49 live entertainment theaters. I would definitely visit this place and watch Branson’s Best Boat and Recreation Show. That event would be exciting to see and mingle with the crowd. If you will visit Branson now, you will enjoy the Silver Dollar City’s Family Spring Break Day. That will be fun for the kids and they can also join the Young Christian’s Weekend activity. As for me, I would really love to see any live entertainment in the area, shop, dine out and take pictures. How about you? Visit Branson this spring and I might see you there too.
