Eminence Speakers

Now that the warm weather has arrived for good here in northern Minnesota, it is nice to sit on our deck with a cup of coffee in the morning and maybe a cocktail in the evening. The only thing missing would be some eminence speakers. I like to play my music when I work in the kitchen but we don’t have any outdoor speakers on the deck. I would really like to look at getting a pair so we can relax and listen to music outside when the weather is nice.

Trying to be a Dance Doctor

I am trying to be a dance doctor of myself, especially now that the bikini season is just around the corner even though, in reality, we are only half through the winter season. I try to think that summer will be here soon so I work harder to getting in shape. Right now, I mix zumba and yoga in my exercise routine and so far, I have been doing well. I am still 95 lbs @ 4'11. Usually, at this time of the year, I already put on some weight because of the holiday season that has just passed. Fortunately, I did not and I want to keep that way.

Solid Body Electric Guitars

When I was still in the Philippines, I bought a guitar for my father's church. It was a cheapo kind and I don't know if it is still in working order. I am thinking about buying my father a better one soon. I have been browsing through Gibson solid body electric guitars and look forward to be able to buy him a Gibson 2014 Les Paul Traditional Electric Guitar Heritage cherry sunburst the next time I see him. I think his ministry deserves a Gibson guitar :-).

Car Oil Changed?

It looks like my hubby will finally get the car oil changed today. It took him almost a month to get this work taken care of. Eventually, changing our car's oil will only take him fifteen minutes but something always comes up every time he has tried to work on it. If it was not his back and leg pain, it would be the oil filter wrench. The last time we went to town, we went to four different stores to get the right oil filter wrench. We already had the right size but my hubby could not find it. Yeah, you know that kind of thing when you need it, you can't find it.

I was in the garage when he started working on it. I want to know how to do it. Changing car oil is easy and simple but putting the car on the ramp is the challenging part. I don't think I could put the car on the ramp by myself.

Acoustic Guitars

This Takamine G FXC G260C Acoustic Guitar is one of the takamine guitars at guitarcenter that you can find. I bought my father's church an acoustic guitar seven years ago but it was not a Takamine guitar. It was just a cheapo kind but they are making a good use of it until now. I did now expect that it would last this long. If that guitar breaks, I will buy them a fancier guitar. That would be my gift for the church.

Musical Instrument

Here in the north country, there are a lot of ex-pat Filipina women married to American men. We like to get together on a regular basis and have parties and music is always a big part of them. There always seems to be a karaoke player available and at the bigger Christmas parties we even have DJs with the full blown sound systems available. This last Christmas we missed having the big party because some of the key people were out of the country. I have always thought it would be fun to be a DJ but I haven't got the equipment to do the job. I was looking at the musician's friend website and they have some really cool musical instrument that would be great to get started with.

Happy ;-)

I have been feeling happy lately. I don't want to end this feeling soon. It is probably because my hubby has not been in as much pain recently. He doesn't feel completely well yet but he is definitely feeling much better than the last couple of months. I was very scared at that time. I broke down many times and thought that I was going to be hospitalized as well. The situation was too much to handle for me. It was very difficult. Now I know how hard it is to live far away from your loved ones. In times like these, they are a great comfort.
