just a short gratitude post

I've been meaning to write a gratitude post for every good deed or random act of kindness I've experienced from people. I know I have missed out on a few lately. However, I'm sure that the people I owe my gratitude to knew that I'm sincerely thankful and grateful for all the things they have done for me and my family. Often, I am grateful for all these because they came at a perfect time that we could really use some help. What's so touching about this is that they don't really have to do them but they did. Certainly, it is the Lord that works in them!

how about lights for home improvement?

Have you been thinking about doing some home improvement lately, hoping to get more inspiration from the sight of a beautiful home? If you ask me, a well-lighted home is a very good home improvement in itself. In fact, I just happened to know one person in the neighborhood who is also practically doing this for additional income. He can really do wonders in your home just by changing and picking the right lights according to your preference. If you can't decide what's best for your personality or your home, he can also do it and come up with a lot of options for you. If you don't want to repaint the entire house for lack of time and you want to make a good impression on your upcoming guest, you can definitely do the trick by playing with the lights and perhaps by also re-arranging the furniture a little bit. Man, you have to meet this neighbor of ours. Very recently, I saw the pictures he posted on Facebook and I shared them on my wall/timeline. A friend of mine saw them and instantly got impressed with the way he had manipulated the lights to make his friends' and clients' homes look pretty special. Now, she's just waiting for her orders at lighting55.com for slv lighting to arrive so she can seek his help with installation, decoration and further enhancements.

saving a little bit more from decoration expenses

Here comes December! Things are going fast, huh! We didn't realize it until invitations to Christmas parties from friends kept coming today. Wow, should we go to all of these parties in the spirit of Christmas? Hopefully, we can, especially if schedule and budget will permit. Speaking of Christmas, I decided to buy the traditional lanterns because they're quite affordable than the ones made of Capiz shells which are sold between one thousand to thousand pesos, although I originally wanted the latter to grace our home this Christmas. However, I wanted to be able to save a little bit more from the decoration expenses for our gift-giving activities; thus, we somehow ended up getting frugal with Christmas decorations. We intend to add Christmas outdoor lights later to be one with our neighbors in keeping the spirit of Christmas alive.
