Saturday Random Photos

The day of the super moon that everyone had been telling me about, the morning was promising that we might have a clear sky Saturday night. I got up early to go to a T-shirt sales from one of the manufacturing companies in Maiden, all T-shirts were selling for $1 to $3 each.  I think they might try to get rid of their inventory before the fiscal year end.

My niece got a few of these three quarter sleeve T-shirts, and Lee got several T-shirts and a hoodie sweater around her waist for $1 each.

Lee took my Rollerblade to my Dad’s house, she could comfortably fit into a size 8.5 now.

She was teaching my niece how to rollerblading, kids pick things up fast these days.  I actually started out with roller skate when I was little living in Brooklyn, New York.  There’s not a lot to do growing up in the city and I got really good at it, even had races with some of the neighborhood kids skating backward, of course I had many scars to prove it as well.

It has been a while since I visited Bo’s mom, and Bo came home with these fresh eggs for my dad on Friday. I see there are still blue eggs laid by Bo’s Americana hens.

We ate healthy on Saturday, a Lao noodle vegetable wrap with fresh mint and parsley from my Dad’s garden. I stir-fry the chicken and pork, and we had the Romaine lettuce as the wrap with spicy peanut dipping sauce.

My mom’s Orchid is in the 8th week of blooming, can’t believe that it has been 2 months and still as pretty as ever.

He has 2 crab apple trees, this one that was so abundant last year doesn’t look like it would bear many fruits this year.

And this other tree looks like it would but the fruits are extremely tiny.

I haven’t seen any Bee this year but the birds are everywhere now, especially in my Dad’s backyard.  This one is a Robin, and I think it might be a male since the chest color is very rich.

I remember planting these many years ago, it’s nice to see them come up year after year.

The housing market is suffering in our area.  This house and many other houses in my Dad’s neighborhood have to constantly reducing the selling price and even that no one would buy.  The economy is suffering everywhere, but the problem seems so minimal now comparing to what is going on in other parts of the world.

This was all I saw of the super moon. I had a good 5 minutes of clear shot and it vanished into the thick dark cloud. The photo was taken from my Dad’s driveway at 7:56 pm (19:56).

  1. Spring isn’t officially here yet but things are really sprouting beautifully out there.

    The tulip tree is beautiful and many other trees too. The pink hyacinth are also pretty. I just didn’t realize they come back up every year. I thought they were like tulips where you have to dig them up and save the bulbs.

    And it looks like you had a great weekend too! 🙂

      1. Hi Cambree, it was like that for us several weeks back, and now everything is out. I think I might have a mild case of Hay fever and feel so tire, but hope that it will pass soon because I want to visit Biltmore for the tulips.

  2. Lee and her cousin look much older now. Kids grow up so fast.
    Btw….don’t laugh but I never knew the type (name) of the shirt your niece is wearing. I call them “baseball” shirt. Don’t ask me why. That is just something I came up with. Anyway, I like the style and been looking for it for myself but no luck. I found it for kids but never for adult.

    1. Dallas,

      I remember a few years back when it seem everyone was wearing raglan sleeve shirts. They look funny on me so I don’t wear them. You can check online at places likeJcPenny and Sears.. It’s even on sale! 🙂

    2. Dallas, I used to call it a baseball shirt also, that’s what you see them wear out in the field. My sister got a few in size medium for herself but I didn’t get any, I bought T-shirts only since I’m more of a T-shirt and jeans type of person.

      Cambree, I bought these from Delta Apparel and they made T-shirts for customers like JcPenny, not sure about Sears. I’m really surprised to see the prices of some of these t-shirts, not sure how they even cover the cost since the price of the fibers are not cheap these days. Then they have to knit into fabric, cut and sew, it just a lot of work involve.
