The Holy Week

I was raised to be a Roman Catholic and one of the most important days or event of the year is the Holy Week. I am not really familiar about the church calendar as each year we do have different days where it falls.

Anyways, so one of the most sacred of holy week for Christian is when from Holy Wednesday to Easter Sunday. As this is the time when our Lord Jesus Christ paid our sins on earth.

During this time, churches are busy with a pass over, the station of the cross and many more. Each day there is an activity that would remind us how Jesus Christ our Savior save us all. He got crucified, but on the 3rd day HE Rose again.

I normally don’t do anything about this week, I remembered during my youthful years the only thing that is playing in our television are those Pass Over movies, the Crucifixion, The Ten Commandments and more. Everything related to what’s in the Bible.

It is really nice to look back, leave all those modern things that we are now used to and watch about what we are now. Even if you are just looking at wireless microphone for a gift to someone on Easter.

Still more Leaves to Come for a Yard Work

It is very obvious in the pictures that we still have more dry leaves left. I tried to finish it up, but I just couldn’t seem to haul them all and put them away.

This was the dry leaves from last Fall 2016 and now it is 2017 and Spring is here, in which I am thankful because I can start cleaning the remaining piles of leaves in our yard, however another thing that stops me from doing it is raining.

It is wet and hard to scope even though I used the snow shovel, just annoying to have them wet. I started yesterday again, to pick up some thinking I can clean this pile at once, but putting wet leaves in the trash bag is a pain in the butt.

The question is, will I ever finished this before Summer comes? I don’t want to give an answer with a period because either am I isn’t certain.

1. Quality Jeans

Once you’re approaching 40, it’s time to be more purposeful in your jeans purchasing. It’s not going to work anymore to simply buy the cheapest pair you spot on sale at the rack at the mall or online; you’ve got to look for a good, quality brand and take the time to find the right fit. Aim for a few different types of jeans, such as tailored, skinny, and straight.

2. A Vibrant Scarf

A few vibrant scarves are also great additions to any woman’s wardrobe, especially when you turn 40. A scarf as an accessory for an outfit instead of a cold-weather staple can instantly add some interest and color to any outfit. Another great reason to opt for scarves is they can keep your neck and chest covered and less likely to incur more sun damage on your fragile skin.

3. A High-End Purse

Now that you’re in your forties and established, it’s time to upgrade your accessory options, including your purses. If your budget is limited, you can aim to invest in a signature piece that only comes around for certain occasions. A high-end purse can help spread the word that you’ve arrived and you’re not going anywhere.

4. Casual Leggings

For those days when you’re running errands on the weekend, you need something casual but a little more chic than the ratty sweatpants you could get away with in your twenties and thirties. Why not try a great pair of casual leggings to go out and about in. Opt for leggings that are more structured and help smooth out any figure flaws to make your confidence go through the roof.

5. Supportive Sneakers

Your feet also need some extra tender loving care once you reach the age of 40. Be kinder and gentler to your toes with a strong pair of supportive sneakers. Before choosing your favorite pair from the store because of how stylish they look, try them on and walk around in them for a bit. As you age, your physical needs change, and you should go with a pair of shoes that offers more arch and heel support.

6. Crisp Blazers

Another great piece to have on hand once you reach 40 is a smart blazer. While sweaters and cardigans are fine when you’re younger, a blazer screams sophistication. This is the perfect image for you as you thrive in your forties.

7. Easy Button Down Shirt

Your body may not look as taut and toned as it did when you were younger. It’s hard to find the best casual tops that fit well and flatter. A simple button down oxford shirt can give women in their forties plenty of relaxed room as well as a little bit of structure.

8. Flattering Sheath Dress

When it’s time to dress up, you can still look sexy and elegant at 40. In fact, with a gorgeous sheath dress from, you can make even the twentysomethings envious. Be sure to choose a fabric that flatters your new grown-up figure.

9. Comfortable Heels
Elegance doesn’t stop with a cute dress; it needs some assistance from the right kind of footwear. Stick with simple basics at 40, like a nice pair of comfortable heels. Avoid choosing heels that are too high or a pair that’s too hard to walk in. Instead, go with something sleek and elegant to match your evening wear.

10. Shapewear

The last basic element that should be in your closet once you hit 40 is a few pieces of shapewear. There’s nothing wrong with recruiting a little bit of help with keeping your curves in check. You can get a better fit in your clothes as your body matures throughout this new stage of life.
