Spring Time In California

During spring time and summer time, thats when you really feel what California is all about, lots of sun! Its only like yesterday when I came out wearing jackets and long sleeves, but these days been so hot, it is hard to last outside wearing thick clothings anymore.

Personally, I prefer coming out during spring time rather than summer time because the sun is not yet burning hot. The closer it gets to summer time, the more the temperatures goes to three digits and its uncomfortable and quite unsafe to be outside when it gets that hot, specially when you are in the car, the aircon may help while on the road, but getting in and out of the car is usually the worst part in the summer because you need to cool the car down before you can get in, and then after its been setting for awhile under the sun, it gets oven hot...

Currently, we have plenty of blooming daffodils, so its great to see colorful flowers in the yard again specially after months of winter. Last year, we planted hundreds of daffodils bulbs that we bought bulk from a warehouse store, so it is great to finally see all our hardwork come to life :-) Most of the daffodil flowers that we planted last fall are currently blooming for the first time this couple of weeks, so it is definitely worth it doing all the dirty works digging holes, dropping the bulbs in the ground and covering them with dirt! The hardworks and hard labor definitely paid off, big time.

Drive Safely

The reason why I need to talk about driving today is because we just had a heart-pumping experience in the road today! We somehow thankfully managed to escape from a non-attentive driver today, who almost hit us simply because he was using our lane not his, in a two lane road. We were driving towards a blind spot of a winding road, when an incoming big four wheel drive truck was coming towards us very quickly and the truck was more than half in our side. In short, the driver of the truck was using around three feet of our lane. Thank God that both cars were able to swing away from each other before any head-on collision occured. So I am extremely grateful that nothing happened, and everyone is safe in both cars.

I just hope that all drivers out there will always be responsible and always be careful in the road. If you are tired, sleepy, drunk, or dizzy, big favor, dont drive! Better safe, than sorry, wait until you can safely drive and can stay in your own lane. Remember that in a road full of cars, there are lives in each one of them.
