My 40th Birthday

It’s my birth month. The most important month of the year. I am turning 40th this month and I am so happy for the gift of life. Thankful to God for giving me another year of life. Another year of trials, happiness, and wonderful journey in life. As they say that life begins at 40. I must say, it is true because my long time prayer has been answered by God. Thank you God for always there and for hearing what my hearts desires. I am just waiting for the moment when my ultimate dream will come, love and embrace my life.

On my 40th birthday, I wish to have a happy life, good health, complete family that is always been there for me and long life. There is nothing more than I could ask for because God answered my prayers and wish. I pray that God will give it to me this year. Anyways, I do not have a feast on my birthday. Like the usual celebration, I am going to have a simple dinner with the family with our favorite dish. It might be a simple celebration but a memorable one because I got the best gift from God. The one I have been praying for, for years. Forever thankful to you God.

Should I Have My Lake Water Tested?

The testing of your lake water is the first step needed to determine the health of the water. Water that is unbalanced and contains harmful levels of specific things will not support aquatic life and can be dangerous for swimming and other forms of human contact. Aquatic management services provides the testing you need to help plan and carry out the tasks necessary for improving the condition of the lake.

Ph and Hardness of the Water

The basic chemistry of the water in your lake has a great impact on the overall health of the plants, aquatic life, comfort levels, and safety for swimming, fishing or wading. Elemental readings for hardness, chlorine levels, Ph, alkalinity, dissolved oxygen, and phosphates can be taken, monitored and changes made to bring the water to a healthy balance.

Turbity and Clarity

Turbity or the level of particulate matter like mud in the water can directly affect the clarity of your lake water. It’s measured in ntu units and can be improved by additives that help these particles settle to the bottom. Aquatic management services will help determine the cause and help offer the cure.

Water Level and Temperature

The water level of your lake and temperature can determine how healthy the environment is for your fish, frogs, and plants. Lower water levels can lead to higher temperatures and the perfect environment to begin experiencing an algae bloom or outbreak. It’s important to monitor this closely.

Harmful Bacterial Growth

If your lake is used for swimming, canoeing, wading, fishing, or any other human/water contact activity, monitoring and testing for harmful bacterial growth is essential. You don’t want anyone to become ill and hospitalized by an unexpected problem with bacteria. Treatments are available to rid the bacteria and plans developed to eliminate the cause.

Water testing is one of the more important parts of aquatic management services. It gives you the overall picture of health you need to make important improvement decisions.

The niece’s 14th birthday

Last January 7, 2019, was the 14th birthday of my niece. Time flies really fast. The baby that I used to carry in my arms is now as tall as me. lol We had a simple birthday celebration for her. A simple dinner with the family, and invited our closest neighbor. We just cooked the family’s favorite and I bought the birthday girl request, a birthday cake. It is my simple gift for her on her birthday. Too bad I was not able to see her blowing her birthday candle because I was with my father for doctor’s check-up.

Anyways, the birthday celebration of the niece is memorable even if it is simple, it is because the family is there to celebrate with her. I wish her all the best in life, I know that it is a long way to go but I know that she will achieve her goals in life because she is a determined kid. Though sometimes, this lady is a brat.arghs! Well, it is her part of growing up. I wish that she will keep in mind what I told her and be responsible person when she grow up. Love herself, and value the people around her especially her family. Happy birthday Ella. God bless always and be a good girl.

Sorry I was not able to take a photo of her because we came home late.

The two weeks Christmas Vacation

The two weeks Christmas vacation of my nephews and nieces at school started last Monday, December 15, 2018. I am glad that I do not have to wake up very early, and no fetching and sending off nephews at school too. However, I have lots of house works to do. I have to clean lots of clutter at home, attending my sick father and hopefully to do my Christmas list. I don’t have lots in my list though because of tight budget. Not like before, we will refrain ourselves from going to malls and department store a lot. For better future.LOL

The two weeks Christmas vacation of my nephews are playing and practice reading. The five (5) year old nephew especially. He needs to practice reading in preparation for Grade 1 level next year. He might not like it because he likes to play, but this is for his own good. Also, to make his vacation a fruitful one. Her mother (my sister) will teach him how to read and practice writing. I hope I will get to rest more to regain more strength for sending and fetching kids at school.

Advance Merry Christmas everyone!

The Magic of Music

There’s something that’s rather magical about walking into a great music store, especially one that has beautiful instruments on display. The feeling that comes from talented musicians playing their heart out on real instruments is a joyous one, and it’s something most of us don’t get to hear every day. Walking into a piano store boston or any other city that is home to musical talent can bring on a feeling that’s like no other. It’s the energy of real music being played by real musicians who care about music to the bottom of their soul. Yes, that’s what it’s all about and that’s why music stores are so priceless.

Getting Lost in the Music

Great music stores offer people the opportunity to learn to play and develop musical skills on real instruments. When you pick up violin or a trumpet, you can feel its value and its integrity, as all of that is built into the construction of a fine instrument. Sitting at a piano also can bring on a feeling of awe, as the design of a piano, just in itself, is beautiful indeed. When a student starts to learn the art of really playing an instrument, the effect can be utterly awesome. A well-constructed musical piece, played on a beautifully constructed piano, is a wondrous thing to behold. Music really does create a sense of wonder, as music evokes joy and feelings that are hard to express simply through words. All of this is why studying an instrument is so worthwhile, and why engaging with music can be a life changing experience.

Walking into a music store might seem like a simple act, but the effects of that act can transform your life in ways you might never have imagined.
