Birthstones

The photo above are not the loose diamonds you might be looking for. (How I wish I have those many big diamond stones in my shoes! ha ha) Those are fake stones, err, not actually stones but crystal-like ornaments to adorn the pair of shoes.

It is interesting to learn that loose diamonds have different shapes – round, square, heart, etc, when looking at its outline from above. The most common shape is round and the other diamond shapes (like pear or oval) are called fancy-cut. They are also classified according to color and the less color, the rare the diamond is. The other Cs that classify a diamond is clarity (the fewer inclusions and blemishes, the more valuable a diamond is), carat (the unit of weight of the diamond and the greater the cut, the more expensive a diamond is), cut (the quality of the diamond’s dimensions, finish and light performance) and certification (a document that describes the diamond prepared by expert gemologists.

But hey, in Hubpages, somebody wrote about each month’s gemstones. And since my birthday falls on May, my birthstone is emerald. Here is what’s written about it:

The best quality emeralds are more expensive than diamonds.

By the way, those born in April has diamond as birthstone.

As I have told everyone who visits this blog, Lee-ann is a favorite photography subject. The first photo was when she was younger and was surprised by my camera’s flash. The second photo was when she was almost two and was surprised when she noticed I was aiming the camera to her. She giggled a lot that time.

She had grown older now but not really that tall because her parents were not tall people he he And she is not related to me or to my husband though I love her. Her father is a friend. Her looks are a combination of her father and her mother’s features. The color was from her father and the eyes was from the mother.

I always get a kiss from her. She talks a lot, too, though some I cannot fully understand. I am so fond of her because she is a happy child that loves to play a lot.

Makes Me Want to Go to Bahamas

It’s a toxic week. So much work to do. Workload is too much. Predicaments are escalating. And the situation has the likeness to mountain climbing. As I had written a few days ago:

You can face your problem just like how you climb a mountain. In climbing the mountain, you will encounter rocks that protrude and that makes the climb hard. Just like life, there are obstacles that will make it hard for you to face the problems. But as you climb the mountain and focus yourself ahead, you also focus your attention to what situation you are in now. All your hard work will be focused on the step ahead, and then on the next, and so forth, little by little. – Do You Have Problems?

It makes me want to scan those travel deals if they have an appealing bargain for the Bahamas. I saw the place where the 2009 Miss Universe pageant was held. It was gorgeous!

But I forgot, I don’t have enough money… 😦
