I was making something for my son’s golf. I was asking y wife if she can help me. She said she will when she is done eating and cleaning the dishes. My wife was about to come outside and help me. Our boy neighbor came. I was actually surprise to see him. He did help me with my golf project.

My wife saw that our young neighbor came so she did not help me. She indeed do our kids laundry. She did not use the dryer to dry the clothes. Instead she hangs the clothed over the pool fence. This way we can save electricity. Recently our electric bill is high.

My wife does not mind drying the clothes over the pool fence. She did loads of laundry. She even make fun of me to build an extension for the fence so she has enough space to dry the clothes.

It rained a bit which makes the wife sad. She does not want her laundry gets soak from the rain. Surprisingly, the rain stop and she remove all the clothes over the fence. They all dried up now. It just needs for my wife to fold them.

How about you? How do you save your electricity?

I built a second swing for my kids


I already built my first swing for my kids back at our backyard two years ago. It looks like my kids always fight who wants to go first. Enough of their fighting that I decided to build another swing. Each kids of mine will never have to fight of whom will use the swing first.

We have this willow tree back at our backyard. It is really a huge tree. I look for a board that I used as a transmission arm. I used big ropes. I also used big bolts to secure it. I think I did pretty good on this new swing.

Now my kids will use the swing each. Nobody will fight. It is peaceful when they get along well. Here are my kids tasting the new swing that I built. They are both appreciative with me with their new swing. I always do my best to give my kids the best of life. I hope that one day they will appreciated it more when they grow up and have their own family.

I clean our chimney


My wife and I noticed that our fireplace smells terrible. I am sure that the chimney needs to clean up very soon. I did not clean it during the winter. We used our fireplace 24 hours and seven days a week. It is our only heat in the house. We never use our heater but instead of the fireplace.

It was almost two weekends ago that finally I cleaned the chimney by myself. I told my wife not to use the fireplace as I am planning of cleaning it. It was a perfect day to clean finally the chimney.

I need the ladder to get on top of the roof. I also need my cleaning tools for the chimney. I am busy cleaning the chimney, and my wife is busy taking pictures of me. Blame her camera for that. I even make a muscle to make my wife laugh when I did it. She thinks I am a show off but I am just playing with her.

It did not took awhile for me to clean the chimney. I also need to remove all the brakes inside the fireplace. There were enough black dust to fill-up a bucket. It was a big mess. I am just happy that I clean the chimney. I thought that winter is over yet we are still using our fireplace but not so often now. My wife and I do not smell any odor. It means I did an awesome job cleaning the chimney. My wife is always proud of me.
