Oh gosh, I could not open my tab. It just blacked out but it is charging. I have to wait for Josef to do the trick. I couldn’t read e-books since they are all in there. When you are used to reading bigger fonts with light in it, you’ll wonder how you ever survived reading those small prints in a real book. I am learning how ….again.

It’s a good thing I still have my other CP to use for texting and calling. I use the unli call feature of Globe almost every day to call my brother in the province. P20.00 is good for 24 hours of calls without limit. Sometimes, I use messenger to call my cousin and niece. They are always online but I don’t like using my CP to connect to Facebook. I always prefer my reliable PC to connect to Facebook. Since I don’t have a microphone on the speaker attached, I could not use the messenger for calling. Viber is having problems. I am thinking of removing  it then reinstalling it again. It might work.

How have we become so dependent on these gadgets? Our lives have evolved using them almost every day. What if internet hasn’t been in use yet? For some, letter-writing has become somehow obsolete. E-mails are way, way faster to communicate. I still love receiving snail mails though, hand-written letters or greeting cards. I love that feeling that it is better thought of and personally given enough time by the writer.

Do you love snail mail like I do?

This is pretty crazy. I use a tab and two cellphones but aside from texting and calling contacts, occasionally taking photos from my tab, importing books  and reading, I am not much of a techie.

Last night, my son changed the SD card of my tab to a more substantial capacity and reformatted everything, copying my books  and photos.  There are so many  pre-installed apps that I don’t actually use but they go with the tab so I cannot delete them.  He was able to retrieve even the books I read before. I guess they just need to be there again for future reading.  It even has  pre-installed  phone numbers of various institutions like banks, police, civil defense, blood banks etc.   The only things that were automatically erased were the previous texts I had.

I  also changed my  wallpaper with a close-up picture of Nate.  I am getting excited to take more photos. I don’t have a new camera yet, I still have to look for a reasonably  priced one but good enough for everyday pictures.

This morning  I tried taking a photo of  the hydrangea I bought a month  ago. It used to have blue flowers when I bought it but I changed the pot to a bigger one and added more soil.

A pink hydrangea

I was surprised. the flowers are pink now. Did you know that the color of the hydrangea flowers change depending on the pH of the soil used?  In strongly acid soil (pH below 6), flowers turn blue. In alkaline soil (pH above 7), flowers turn pink or even red. I always love hydrangea. Locally it is known as million flowers.
