This book is simply “it”. Amazing, lovely,interesting story line.

The last time I read about time travel was when I encountered The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger. We have two copies in the shelf, one is a mass produced book and a trade paperback.

I understand this was published lately back in January 2019. A science fiction fantasy that takes you to two worlds, century apart and how life was then and now. An adventure-filled story in the life of Kin Stewart, his family back in the 21st century and his future in the year 2142.

I really hope there would be a movie adaptation someday. I gave this five stars at Goodreads. It’s my 46th book by the way for this year’s challenge.

It’s been a while since I trimmed our carabao grass. The last time I did was early  January. Since it is super hot here, the grass grows slowly and some areas have dried patches too. Yesterday, I started trimming  the grass and clearing the cemented stone path. Afternoon gardening is not really that conducive, there is no breeze to speak of. What I usually do is bring out a small electric fan and my transistor radio to listen to the afternoon music while gardening.  It is officially summer here now and you can’t stay outside that long without something to cover your head from the heat.  And I have to water the plants sometimes twice a day for them to survive. I save on water.   I save the water used for washing dishes and vegetables for cooking to water those I have planted at the back of the house. So far, so good, they’re thriving.

Every Friday for the whole season of Lent is Abstinence for us Catholics. We are all required to abstain from meat on all Fridays of Lent.  Sometimes it’s hard to think of something you can eat on a Lenten Friday. I prepared pasta for lunch but I used Spanish sardines instead of meat. The olive oil in the sardines is good enough to use for the pasta. I  added lots of garlic though, carrots and red bell pepper. Seafood is also allowed but I eat it in moderation.

Summer fruits are in season again but some still cost so much.  I guess there is nothing in the market that is cheap nowadays.  Even veggies are pricey too. I highly recommend to plant your own vegetables in your backyard to save a little.

Happy weekend everyone!
