Aside of course from being hit by the lazy bug to make a blog post, I was busy.

Finally, we got to meet again after several years. What a lovely time with the family. We had a mini reunion last November 1 when Noel and Lanette were here. A late celebration for my birthday. I just ordered food online so we had enough time to exchange news. We invited my oldest brother Kuya Roy and my sis-in-law, Nissa’s family too. They brought with them lots of goodies for the family. Nissa and Noel took a lot of photos. I am compiling them in an album at Facebook.

At first mom could not recognize Noel but when he embraced and kissed her, she smiled and shouted “Oweng”, Noel’s nickname.

A family pic but the others were busy with lunch. (Josef, Noel, Nissa, Nate and me).
Ang maglolo.
With Noel and Lanette
Look at how old my mom is now. She’ll be turning 94 by April next year.

Nate’s legs are so heavy😘

They spent four days in Mindoro with Lanette’s family, then yesterday, they were off to Pangasinan to visit Alden at the cemetery and a quick visit to my niece and sis-in-law and some cousins. Good thing one of Lanette’s brothers was free to drive them around. They’re coming back today and on Saturday, Nissa and Obet will bring them to Tagaytay to enjoy another tourist attraction.

Mae is Alden’s only child. She said she looks more like his tito than her Papa.

Just a hectic two-week visit.

I think I am getting old. I now have a forty-year old daughter but I wish I have more grandkids. It must be nice to have a big family.

Back in our time at Bank of PI, we were always allowed to file a vacation leave on the day of our birthday. So they are still doing it until today. Obet also filed a leave of absence and Nate does not have class today.

I asked Nissa where they’ll be having their lunch. It’s at Sofitel Philippine Plaza Hotel. Wow, what a grand celebration. I enjoyed reading the comments on the tribute I wrote for Nissa. Nate is as smart as his mom. I hope when he grows up, he’ll be as successful as Nissa.

More memes I did yesterday. They are actually excerpts from my previous blog posts. I shared these with our two Catholic groups at our FB sites.

Thoughts


If you could touch one soul out there through your words,

If you could make someone smile despite the tears,

If you could inspire someone who is depressed to move on,

Then you are truly blessed.

God sees the goodness in everyone of us.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING to my family and friends living in the US. May you always feel the warmth of family and may you always be blessed.

Despite of what is happening around, we always have something to be thankful and to be grateful for.

It was a quiet quarantine birthday.  We just ordered food at home for lunch and dinner. I’ve missed Nissa’s family though. I was busy almost the whole day answering comments and greetings on Facebook and a couple of long-distance calls to boot.

I enjoyed reading all their messages. I guess that is how a quarantine birthday is celebrated. Since we can’t all go out, we just decided to stay at home.  I got a lovely surprise when someone called that he was at our gate, he greeted me a happy birthday first before delivering a big box from flowerstore.ph – a gift from Nissa. Wow! Took shots of how the day went.  It is quite touching to see  Mum smiling and lovingly touching those lovely blooms. She just love flowers.

Wohoo, that’s me at 64!

Look at the white hairs. I haven’t been to David’s for almost eight months now.

A boodle “bilao” (a big tray)complete with sisig, barbeque, tapa, fried chicken, chicken inasal and lumpiang shanghai plus a kilo of ready to fry veggie lumpia.

A birthday cake from Red Ribbon, a gift from Josef and Jovy.

Making a wish? Just for good health always!

Sunburst! A beautiful, cheery bouquet of two toned violet mums, pink carnations and a sunflower.

It came with this lovely birthday balloon.

Those carnations and mums are just so lovely.

How they look in our sala. I noticed the leaves that look like cuttings from Gardenia. Can’t wait to plant them soon.

So that’s how the day went. Glad to be 64 at last.

Monday, Monday, so good to me. 

Ah, I think it is a line in one of the songs of the Mamas and the Papas, right? I am having a LSS at the moment but I just hope Monday would be good and also the rest of the week.

Here’s one good news I guess. Nissa told me last night that there is another medal  waiting for Nate which she and Obet will get today from  Nate’s school. It is still part of the two medals  ( High Honors and Character Traits Awards) plus the  certificate he got earlier this school year.  Best English Speaker.  I  am not surprised since he is speaking the language since he learned how to talk and speak.  Mother and son are comparing notes…haha! Nissa  told  him  that she had hers (from nursery to college) kept here. She was able though to show him her college diploma and took shot of it last night. Nate asked her what Magna Cum Laude means so she explained it. She told him to study well. I told you he is seven going twenty, right? He has this dream of being a Magna Cum Laude too when he graduates….yeay!

 

Dreams are not impossible to come  true as long as you believe they are  achievable.  Focus, diligence, conscientiousness and right attitude coupled with prayers for guidance.

Proud Nonna here.

Just received a package a while ago from my Franciscan friend Sr. Thea who stayed in the Holy Land for three months. She sent me all these – key chains from Assisi, France and the Holy Land and also a Divine zeal key chain from Myanmar.

I love the rosary best. She said it is blessed by touching the big rock on which Jesus prayed in Gethsemane. The center medal at the back of the image of the Blessed Mother is soil from the Holy Land.

Don’t ask me how I was able to post this photo. It was just by trial and error. I took it using my tab’s camera.
