How are you guys? It’s been a while and I mean I haven’t actually read posts on my reader feed and posted something in mine. Do you know that feeling that you have neglected something, something precious and maybe you will agree, blogging has done that for me.
It was a busy weekend and it will be a busy week too. I got some blisters on my fingers. Wearing gardening gloves is a useless exercise. We have let the carabao grass grow thick and it is hard to skirt around the concrete walkways. I am halfway through and have to finish it before the rain comes.
August is here, one of the rainiest months of the year and there is a typhoon coming although it would just pass through the Philippine area of responsibility but it would bring monsoon rains to the north. We’ve been having thunderstorms the past days but I am praying the monsoon rains would not inundate Metro Manila. There is still that inner fear that I feel every time the rainy season sets in.
It’s still dark outside, a perfect time for that hot cup of coffee before I go out and finish the task of trimming our carabao grass. I am looking forward to catching up on my reading once I finish it. Lately, I was engrossed reading news and comments on social media about politics here in our country although my head aches with all those negative comments. The way a certain politician would do anything to win, by hook or by crook makes me puke. If he wins, we are doomed. I am praying that the electorate would think twice and discern enough before deciding who to vote for and not be swayed by dirty politics. We never learn, some of us have that sadistic tendency to vote for someone who does not deserve our votes. Sorry, I always try to avoid writing political blog post but this one takes the cake.
How do you greet each morning when you wake up? Do you start it with a prayer like I do? Or do you spend a few moments just watching the day unfolds? Do you welcome the day with gladness in your heart? Do you celebrate each day with anticipation? Are you thankful for another day of blessing?
Good morning, I’m off to garden 🙂
