The Rabbit's House

I don't know what's in the rabbit's waste that the dogs are crazy about. They love to nibble on the Rabbit's M&Ms which is gross so I decided to fenced in the bottom and put some decorations around it.
Instead of throwing out the old  water sprinklers, I  put some plants in it

Horse Riders

Have you ever watched the movie called "Seabiscuit"?  This was filmed back in 2003, a  movie based on a true story of a racing horse who won 33 races  and earned   over  four hundred thousands of dollars back in 1930s.  This is a great and inspiring movie to watch.  Hubby and I love this one.  Seeing the Belmont Stakes 2012 horses reminds me of this movie  very much.  While I was  flipping through their pages, the scenes from the movie keeps playing in my mind.

Anyhow, if you are looking for some  products that you need for your ranch or horses, Manhattan Saddlery is the place to  shop to.  They have  saddles at international stores and  many other products that  involves horses.  You can also  enjoy free shipping  with their products by finding the legit program that offers this kind of  services.  Shipping can be very expensive especially if it's international but if you are a member of a free shipping company, you can save big bucks on your orders.

Below are the photos of my kids when we visited a relative but got lost. Being lost was a blessing because the ranch owners let our children ride their horses.

Organic Plant Food


We have a new puppy and  he love digging my plants in the garden  which  really disappoints  me because  the vegetables are already blooming and now they are wilted.  I am just glad that  I only used organic plant food, it is safe for  our fur babies.    Gardening has always been my passion  but having kids and pets at home makes   you always  cautious of what you use in the garden to make sure that  it's safe and  healthy for them.   

Whitney Farms offer gardening products that  would give you more produce than the conventional  plant food.  You may try  their products  and enjoy their $3 off your purchase.  I would definitely recommend this to my father-in-law  who love to   do gardening also.  He is getting disappointed that his garden is not doing very well this year.  He  got used to having a very healthy garden from the previous years and this year is  kind of slow.  Above is the  vegetable garden that I have this year.  I hope that I could still revive the ones that our puppy has destroyed.  This was taken last week, they are now so tall and blooming, too bad my fur baby decided to  harvest it  this early.  That's the advantage of using organic plant food, you do not have to worry about your produce.

White Peppers errrr Eggplants

A quick snap of the white peppers that I saw at Epcot's "The Land" attraction.  I have seen white peppers before but they  were very little compared to these   ones I saw in Disney World.
I got this video from youtube that shows everything inside the Living with the Land.

Busy Gardening

I have been busy in my garden lately. I don't have proper training or education on landscaping so designing our yard is an experiment for me. I always make changes to the design I made from the previous year when I see that it would look better the other way.
My tomatoes and potatoes are doing great but my peppers are being eaten by small black ants.  Does anyone know what's the best way to get rid of ants?

Toasters


I am not  much of a bread person but hubby and son loves bread.  They love toast in the morning to eat with their eggs and  bacon.    Our toaster at home is a different brand but my father in law has one those   Proctor Silex Toasters.  He too love toast  so  his toaster is always in use.  If you have a big family and they love  toast, this Cool Touch Toaster will be a  good choice.  It cost  $24.99 at Hamilton Beach website.  It has a cool touch exteriors, wide slots, slide-out crumb tray, automatic shut off and a cancel button.  I think that my favorite feature of this toaster is the slide out  crumb tray.  That is what missing at our own  toaster which makes it harder to clean.    The way their design this is very  practical for a family with  a big  member because  you can toast  double the time compared to the toaster with just two slots.

How about you, do you like eating  bread toast?  Me, not so much.  I mean I can eat it once in a while but not every meal.  I would rather eat rice with my meal than bread hehehe.  That is because  I  grew up eating rice and not bread.  Bread for us is just for snacks.  So folks, what brand of toaster do you have.  Do you think, you would like to have this one?  I wouldn't mind having this one, the only concern I have with this is  the fact that it is too bulky.  But as I have said, this would be perfect for a big family with big kitchen of course.  Check out the selection of toaster at the link provided above.  There are tons of them.

Street Vendor

By looking at the photo, it looks like a normal street vendor stall but these are just props in Hollywood Studio in Disney World.
