And I know how you feel…

But since we had a long, awesome weekend, I feel rather renewed and energized to face a new week in anticipation for the coming weekend. I know it is going to be equally great too!

You all have a productive week!


Today (7/15/2012)

>> Sunday, July 15, 2012

Outside my window… a hot and bright sunny day.
I am thinking… of how nice it is to just lounge and watch a movie now instead of cramming and beating the deadline.
I am thankful for… my work-from-home opportunity. I might whine and complain about being tired all the time but they keep me productive and happy.  
From the kitchen… spaghetti and pork chops.
I am wearing… my favorite tank top and shorts.
I am creating… an Instagram logo out of polymer clay. 
I am going…to purchase a gift for my cousin from Personalcreations.com. I just read that this online shop is giving big discounts plus I saw a gift idea there that perfectly fits the celebrant’s personality.

I am reading…  some magazines about jewelry-making.
I am hearing… my daughter singing her favorite song.
Around the house…my daughter singing while putting away her toys while the husband is busy reading today’s broadsheet.
One of my favorite things… a new sketch notebook where I intend to draw and write ideas for my polymer clay hobby.
A picture I love: Who wants a french macaroon? Unfortunately, it is not edible. Hahaha!

We attended a baptism today and surely, seeing a baby made me want one too! Haha!  But no, pregnancy is not included in our plans yet. In the mean time, we let ourselves enjoy the kids of our friends and relatives. Next week, we are also invited to a baptism of my cousin’s kids. And I say “kids” because she just had twins! She told me that she needs a strollers for twins so that’s what we’re giving them. We’ll be shopping tomorrow and if you know me personally, you already know that I get giddy just merely thinking about it. Yay!


Happy 150th Birth Anniversary, Gustav Klimt!

I have set my homepage to Google and I usually look forward to what comes up on that page. Have you seen today’s Gogle logo? This image is in honor of the 150th birth anniversary of Gustav Klimt. gustav klimtWikipedia describes him as:

Gustav Klimt (July 14, 1862– February 6, 1918) was an Austrian symbolist painter and one of the most prominent members of the Vienna Secession movement. Klimt is noted for his paintings,murals, sketches, and other art objects. Klimt's primary subject was the female body;[1] his works are marked by a frank eroticism.[2]

Isn’t it nice to be greeted by an ingenious rendition of Google and at the same time be introduced to an interesting personality?


Why Invest on Vacant Land

>> Thursday, July 5, 2012

Investing on a piece of vacant land has been a popular choice for many because this type of investment is deem to have many advantages. This has been proved to be one of the safest compared to other forms of investment since it is stable. Moreover, compared to stocks, a piece of land is a physical asset, which is unlikely to diminish completely. Here are other reasons why smart people invest on vacant lots:

Building a House. A piece of a vacant lot can have a lot of potentials. For many, they choose to buy a vacant land to build on it a house of their own or a place which they can have rented out for profit. It may be tedious to build a house from scratch but one big advantage of this is that it allows more customization.





Reselling it for a Higher Price. Another popular reason for buyers of vacant land is reselling it once its market value increases. They just have to make sure that the property is not vandalized by securing it with fences and anti climb spikes.

Using it for Agriculture. Investors may also opt to use the land for agriculture and farming. They can plant trees, farm products or even raise livestock which they can sell to supermarkets once these mature. However, not all vacant lots can be used for agriculture. One must first consider the area where the land is located. Moreover, investors looking into this kind of investment might want to take advantage of their property by allowing other organizations to install facilities such as cell towers on their vacant lot for a monthly rent.


Converting it to Parking Lots. Another option for vacant lot investors is to create parking lots on their properties, particularly in urban areas. It is obvious that parking spaces are scarce in the cities, that is why converting a vacant lot into one is a very good decision.
