Yesterday.

We were able to get our EMV cards at the bank. We have to wait for Jovy to come home so she could drive us there.

There are always long lines both at the counters and  at the customer service booths. I have to approach one of their officers and introduced myself as a former employee of BPI. She immediately looked for the replacement cards and let Mom sign hers but I have to replace the PIN numbers for both cards at the ATM machine.

We went to SM East Ortigas later to have early dinner at  the Classic Savory Chicken.   Mom  said that the place was familiar so I told her, we had eaten there before. We dined on buttered chicken, pork chops, pancit canton, chop suey,  crab and corn soup.  Oreo is now allowed to eat veggies like carrots and chayote and minced chicken liver too so we had to separate them and put them in a glass of water to remove the flavor before he could eat them.  He loved the veggies.  We also ordered dinner for Josef and brought it home with us.

Tired.

Started trimming the grass as soon as it is light.Wow, it has grown after more than a month. Went back to the garden around 4 PM. Planted another packet of Zinnia today. I hope they would sprout in a week. I noticed while I was weeding, there are new shoots of my Vinca, probably from the flowers that have fallen to the ground. I am envisioning how this would all look when they bloom.

I gave our neighbor bottle gourd. There are more  than ten of them on our trellis in different sizes.  Did you know that there are amazing benefits of bottle  gourd?  It is  a vegetable often ignored by many but it acts as a diuretic, improve digestion and prevents constipation.  It also reduces risk of urinary infection and lowers blood sugar levels. Since it is low in calories, it also aids in weight loss. There are also so many ways to cook it.

Finally.

I can now update my reading. Just done with a book about nature and biodiversity. The importance of a healthy natural environment. ” Biodiversity is in decline all over the world. The number of species of animals, plants and microorganisms is decreasing”. I hope to see our little sparrows moving back to the garden again.  I miss their sweet voices early in the morning.
