Let me see…it’s been  five days since my last post here. Got caught by laziness the first two days and the last three days, Globe was on high maintenance. I wonder what that high maintenance actually mean since we didn’t have internet connection for three days.

Took advantage of the days reading in between household chores and some gardening. Done with three books, one was quite long, all of 599 pages. Chances by Jackie Collins reminds me of The Godfather. Remember those mafia scenes – crime, drugs, revenge, friendship, sexual encounters etc. It’s been a while since I read a Jackie Collins book. It’s melodrama to the max, alright.  That was followed by another Dean Koontz book entitled Watchers. Great characters, fantastic story. I love stories about dogs, another terrifying story from an author I am learning to admire. Earlier on, I read The Woods by Harlan Coben. Not quite as good as his other books but I gave it four stars just the same.

We’ve been invited to attend Fr. Aly’s installation as Shrine Rector and Parish Priest at the Diocesan Shrine and Parish of Our Lady of Light here in our town come March 14.  A good occasion to mingle with those priests who were previously assistant vicars several years ago.

I am trying to catch up with all your posts.  Bear with me please.

I don’t know what happened but this morning when I opened my computer, it won’t boot again. Sigh 😕👩‍💻🤔 Maybe it really needs a major overhaul or….I need a new one. But the latter is not an option because I just purchased my new tab last August and my new cellphone last October during my birthday.

I finally figured out how to take photos direct to my Media library. It’s quite easy, you just have to choose how to share using the traditional photo on your camera or let WordPress take it. Learning this tool is quite a feat.

Here’s our sala after I removed the Christmas decoration.

Another try with these left-over black grapes from our media noche.

Got it but I need to adjust the size of the photos. There are three options, medium, large and full but it does not say the exact size.

Anyway, it’s nice to practise taking these two photos.

So this is the second day of Christmas. And it will last till the Baptism of the Lord. It is the shortest season in the Catholic calendar. That would be in January 12 next year.

How was your Christmas celebration? Ours was a quiet one with the family. I like all the reflections during the nine days of Simbang Gabi.

We exchanged gifts on the 24th. I like all my gifts. They are thoughtfully given. Nate and I played with his two water guns at the garden. He was the Blue Boy (with the blue gun of course and I was the Orange Lady. Precious moments with Nate.

I still can’t figure out how to attach photos here since there are no pictures in this tab’s gallery. They are all stored in my new phone. ♡☆. I am still finding it hard to navigate this gadget and update here on WordPress.

Do you also look forward to 2020? May the winds of change create a positive outlook for all of us.

By hook or by crook, I have to learn to use this gadget.

I am like a kid groping, relearning things again. I could not even find my reader feed to be able to see and make comments on your posts.

Been looking at my dashboard this morning. I hope WordPress would bring back that assessment they usually do at the end of the year telling you how you fared with your blog.

It is nice to know that the most read blog with all time views was my post on Mama Mary  I posted it back in September 2011 and it garnered total views of 23,824. Next in line is my blog about our road trip at Regina RICA which we did at the start of the year 2012.  It has  total views of 10,122. Coming in third is my post about one of our local author’s books The Early Bird Catches The Worm But The Second Mouse Gets The Cheese. It has 8,156 views.The author Francis J. Kong is a very gifted and popular motivational speaker here in our country.  I was surprised at the response I got from that post and most of those who commented were just passersby so to speak. Back in  May 2009, I just started blogging here. These were followed by my earlier posts when  I was hospitalized and underwent chemotherapy ten years ago. My total stats at the moment reached 597,267. Maybe by the end of  December, it’ll reach 600,000 views….wishing.

You know why page views are important too? It’s because they tell you whether your blog content is good or not. They may not always make comments or click like but you know they have visited and read your posts. I check my stats occasionally and I am glad I had reached this number.
