I've really been so busy these days I hope all of you my blogging friends forgive me for not writing much lately. There's just so many things we're stucked to at the moment that finding time to blog is like we need more than 24 hrs a day.

I'm just too preoccupied with so many things like our spring project this year doing my yardwork and next in line would be our indoor project which is putting down hardwood floors. It's one big job that we don't know how long it will take me and my husband to finish. Definitely we don't have the budget to hire someone to do the job for us it's just our sweat equity that's needed. That means our time is so tight given the timetable do it before the cold weather kicks in again.

Having said so I apologize to all of you for not visiting your sites often or adding some of you who have already added me. Please bear with me and if I find time between work, out-of-town trips, home improvement projects I'll return the favor. Thank yawl (southern twang) for understanding!

I love this time of the year. When the season started it was a big relief from the lonely winter months. Time to keep the jackets, fleece, longsleeves in the cabinets and take out the tees and shorts.

Spring is the time for homemade ice cream, (Two scoops in Carthage and Ben's in Hway 211 are the best), milkshakes, outside barbeque. This is also the time where you'll see people outside doing yardwork after months of hibernating inside the house. All the beautiful flowers blooming in different colors. I love to watch countless people walking in the park or kids playing ball. And best of all I love the smell of frechly mowed grass in the springtime. One more thing who can beat the sight of the top down cars on the road or the loud sound of motorcyle of course we love it being HO (Harley Owners).
The first weekend of spring my husband crank up our Harley Davidson baby and rode around for some ice cream. Now he is in the Florida keys basking in the sun on his Harley for some spring ride and a little R&R. Can't be with him because I haven't earned my vacation yet anyway I'l be in Myrtle Beach for the Annual Spring Bike Rally in May. I let my husband enjoy his first spring ride you all know his passion is big bikes so I gave him a little liberty lol!
I so welcome spring! Goodbye lonely winter days see yah again but not too soon.

1st Year Anniversary!

Today is our 1st yr wedding anniversary. Been here over a yr, things are getting better each day. The first six months was a big adjustment between doing our paperwork for AOS, waiting for my greencard, SSS, blending in with my husband's family, learning how to drive and finding work.I tell you it ain't easy we both learn new things about each other everyday.

But I remember we only had one big spat in this one yr that was when he didn't bring to me my interview in the city an hr away fr our place and I slept on the other bedroom because I was so pissed at him lol! And aside from our little "sparring" when he was teaching me to drive it paid off so it was all part of the learning process.

Now I'm beginning to enjoy the good life America offers to each immigrant. I have now a good job. Life has been so good. We're still not rich but at least we are very much happy, content, most of all we're very much in love.
