Oh gosh, my carabao grass needs trimming again.

This is what happens when it rains almost every day  and the grass grows like crazy. Maybe I have to postpone trimming it for a week more until after I’m done visiting my doctor for another monthly check-up. I am scheduled for lab tests on the 20th of this month. Growing older, getting old, every which way you look at it, time is inching its way too fast.

Didn’t I say I am excited to see my friends tomorrow?  It’s been a while since we have seen each other last.  I just cooked  a kilo of chicken pork adobo today  which we’ll have tomorrow for lunch along with fresh veggies from the garden.  Adobo tastes so much better a day or two after when the sauce has seeped through.  It’s a Pilipino recipe that is so easy to prepare but tastes so good. I like dry adobo.  We sometimes serve it with quail eggs.

Presently listening to some old songs on YouTube. Pete’s blog post  triggered it actually.

It’s nice to go back sometimes to the 60’s music  and dream of those days when life was simple and you were younger.  Procol Harum is good in A Whiter Shade of Pale. Just finished watching some of the greatest golden hits of the 60’s. I love the Motown sounds too. There was a time when I was still working when I would bring a small cassette player with an ear phone  and listen to some music on cassette. Music One was a favorite place  to go to during lunch break.  Back home, the CD player  was of constant use.  I have compiled those sounds during the British Invasion. Nowadays though, I just rely on my small radio which I take outside when I am gardening. I could listen to the latest news and some music in between.  Music soothes the soul.  It also makes me smile.

I found these four books (they’re actually in a series) by Nora  Roberts. It’s a story of four brothers who were adopted in their younger  years. I’m in book 3  and enjoying it.  I am done with 85% of my reading challenge at Goodreads.

How was your day?

Yes, I believe those in their sixties are baby boomers.

It’s been a busy weekend and blogging took a back seat. I would love to blog every day just like before but it is a no go. It’s either one is too lazy to blog or nothing comes out worthy to blog about. I think it is more of the latter  though. Sometimes the muse doesn’t work.  But I am happy that a lot of people have followed my blog lately although when I looked, some blog sites are no longer active and the blogs are already deactivated. Some are written in another language that I can’t understand. Sorry guys, much as I want to follow you back or read your posts,  I am in a bind. Anyway, I did follow some of you and I look forward to reading your posts. It is always a thrill to discover new blogs and writers here at WordPress.

Nate turned four yesterday and my daughter  went on leave from work so she could prepare his small party celebration in school.  She brought along spaghetti, pizza, cake and ice cream for Nate’s classmates.  Seeing their pictures, I think Nate enjoyed the party. Last week, they went on a three-day trip to Subic, Zambales for swimming and to visit Zoobic Safari.   It is always nice to see Nate enjoying those moments at the beach.  There is nothing lovelier than being with your family on a road trip.

The last two days, I’ve been busy gardening again, trimming the carabao grass  while listening to good old music on my small radio outside.  Listening to news, humming along with  70’s and 60’s songs, that’s what life was all about the last two afternoons. It was nice to garden because it was a little windy.  I don’t have much of flowers nowadays except the blooming Crossandras, Santan  and Shamrock.  Our street is looking festive, they just hung lanterns  on lamp posts yesterday and lit them last night.  Beautiful 🙂   They even have these Christmas decor on the railings of the sidewalk made of native materials.  Nice 🙂

I managed to finish two books the past week, some light reading about works  of new authors that I found lately.

How are you all?
