Growing My Own Watercress

I like to plant watercress because it reminds me of the past when we were little my mother used to go to this particular place near the water tank in Delles which has abundant watercress. My late Mom used to sautee with onion and fried anchovies(karing nga kunada) and it was yummy. 

Accident in Our Neighborhood


We were on our way going home yesterday when we saw this accident. 

Garden Pictures During Rainy Days in Texas

Today is a rainy day. Thank you, Lord, for the rain. It is wonderful to see my wet garden today. Though after hard work at the garden in the last few days, I feel relieved to see my garden growing. To me, gardening is one of my ways to express myself.

First Veggies That I Gather From My Garden

Got breakfast this morning-sauteed petchay with green onions, mushrooms, and noodles. Nay, nagimasen!

My Doctor Said that My Head is Perfectly Fine-MRI Results

My doctor called me today and brought us good news about my MRI result. They said that everything is normal which I mocked the news in my heart because right now I feel pressure and pain in my ears and head. But anyway because I am a fighter in this life, I will continue to claim that this pressure in my head will be healed in Jesus' MIGHTY Name. The doctor believes that I am suffering from an allergy.  Anyways, to God be the Glory! RELATED TOPIC, MRI.

MRI in Weatherford, Texas

Today, we went to Weatherford for my MRI. Last week my husband went to a doctor for a check-up because my ears were very painful. Aside from being painful, I felt that my ears were clogged like when you're in an airplane. I barely hear people when they talk. Am I officially totally deaf now? lol. My doctor requested an MRI of my head. 

Spreading Cedar Mulch in My Garden

My husband suggested spreading cedar in my garden to minimize weeds. It's been over a month since I spread the cedar and it works! Thank you, Honey, you are a supportive husband😍😘😘.(March 31,2021) Thank you also, AJ for carrying these cedar mulch to my gardenπŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺ😁. 

Growing Watercress from Cuttings

I purchased watercress from the Asian market
two weeks and look at them they are bringing hope in my eyes. One container set has no leave at all and the other lego container has top leaves only. Whew, maybe I can produce my own watercress from now on.

My husband invited Ann and Scott secretly. I have no plans for my birthday. The only thing I want to do is to work in my garden. So all day I was cleaning up my garden, planting and weeding my garden. My husband and my daughter have been busy cooking brisket all day also. I have no idea that they been working to put together a simple celebration for me.

My Husband Prepared The Best Salad Ever


Asking God to Provide Even Though You Already Have

I want to share with you our experience last month
when God provided us food to eat, water, and shelter. Here in America, everything is provided, food, water, shelter, transportation, and health care. But from February 14, 2021, onwards Texas didn't expect huge destruction like electricity was down, no water, no heat, and no food. ALL TEXANS THAT WEEK WERE IN SURVIVAL MODE.

Baby Sitting Brendon

I just want to help Anne because one time I called her after her work and she told me that she was babysitting a baby. I volunteered to take care of the boy to help Anne so that she can sleep. I knew that after her work she is extremely tired after working at the donut shop.

Thank You Friends, The Pences are Very Grateful

We want to THANK YOU for our friends all over the place who offered their place to us and we are humbled by your generosity. I want to mention Christian and Scott for looking out for our dog, Smokey during the thickest and worse time of snow. Others provided info where warm places where we can go to, some provided plumbers' contact info. 

Life Without Water In Texas

Life without water in Texas after the snowstorm. I said snowstorm because Texans were not ready when the 8-12 inches of snow covered the state. Pipes were busted all over the place including ours. I was laughing at myself because this is life in the Philippines, not America.

Dining with Scott and Anne's Family at Ginza

Ihop Breakfast for Today

Just beside La Quinta is a breakfast restaurant called IHOP. This is our very first formal breakfast since the snowstorm. Just being grateful we have a good breakfast today. My husband wasn't with us because he needs to join a meeting.

Glory To God in The Highest, He Provided Us a Shelter Today

So, we were on the road looking for a hotel to stay warm today. Kelly our truck was sliding but were praying for safety. How are we going to react in a situation like this? Nervous but hoping in the Lord.

Comfort Suites Hotel in Azle Was Taking Advantage of Us

Last Saturday when we checked into the hotel, the original price was 65 dollars but since my husband is a veteran they give us $55per a night. Since the weather is getting worse, we wanted to extend our stay until Saturday but we found out that they wanted us to pay 240 bucks a night. Whew, what a price! So my family decided to stay for one more night and hoping that we will find another hotel. 

The Pence's Kids are Being Silly in The Snow


Texas Cars Doesn't Move Forward It Runs Backward

We experienced that too during the snowstorm. I was also terrified when our truck turn sideways in the middle of the street because the road was too slippery. It's NO FUN!

Happy Frozen Valentines to Us


Celebrating Valentines in a Snow Together

I thanked God for this handsome man every day. Moving forward for a happier and successful marriage for the years to come. Praise the Lord!

Moving Into a Hotel Because There is NO WATER

Since we do not have water, my husband decided to move us to a hotel in Azle-Comfort Suits because according to the weather channel the next following days will snow in Texas. The original price was 65 dollars but since my husband is a veteran, the price of our room is 55 dollars.

Everything is Frozen Today Including Me

Our old airconditioning unit cannot give us heat. The previous owner never mentioned that the air-conditioning unit doesn't generate heat. It is broken. We are freezing in this trailer house. We doubled up our sweaters. We have a portable heater in our own rooms but the kitchen is extremely cold which we do homeschooling. My nose and head hurt because of extreme cold. Lord provide us money for new airconditioning unit.

Mexican Food-Taquitos Today

As others say, practice makes perfect. I made chicken taquitos today. In my experience, it is harder to fry because if you are not careful the corn tortillas will rip apart. Spring rolls are easier to fry.

Tell it To Jesus, He Will Hear You

My advice to young couples who are married recently, or let us say newly married when you have something against your husband or wife, better to take Jesus as your BESTFRIEND. At least Jesus will not yell back at you literally or say things against you. HE IS DEFINITELY LISTENING TO YOU.
