Can’t believe it’s been a week since my last blog post here. I’ve been busy, busy, busy 🙂 . Maybe before I can finish the remaining job of repotting plants and cleaning the rest of the area at our back garden, it’s time to trim the carabao grass again 😦 I know, it is such a backbreaking job but the sense of fulfillment you get when you see a clean and fresh-looking garden is more than enough. It happens when blogging takes a back seat and gardening is an inspired goal. The joys of gardening – chasing thoughts in your head and listening to silent words while pulling a stubborn weed – priceless moments savouring the language of silence.
Despite the busy days, I managed to update my blog on Nate. He started pre-school yesterday, nursery class. Of course we are all excited, who wouldn’t be? And I am proud that finally, the concreting of our sidewalks are done. I planted some Iris at the corner beneath the trimmed Bougainvillea. Josef trimmed our Arius tree, shaped like a robust Christmas tree and I thought, it is ready for Christmas decor…haha! Our lone Gardenia shrub is now sporting a new look sans the unwanted leaves and small branches. From pots, I replanted my prayer plants direct to the ground, they are thriving nicely.
The weather here is so unpredictable nowadays. Sometimes, it rains very early in the morning or late at night. Occasionally, we still experience thunderstorms. Still a bit under the weather, a week-long cough brought by sudden rain, then a hot and sunny afternoon then it gets cold at night when it rains late.
I am trying to avoid writing about our political situation here though my fingers are itching to tap the keyboards of my computer. I’ve lately decided to just “wait and see” because I don’t want to dwell so much on negativity.
Hello again, I hope you are all doing good.
