It seems like it was only yesterday and yet it is Sunday again. Time travels so fast.
I miss reading the Sunday papers, I used to subscribe when dad was alive. Early Sunday mornings would always be a cup of instant coffee and Philippine Star. I don’t subscribe anymore since I always don’t get to read it anyway. Besides, when you eat an early breakfast at Jollibee, the morning paper comes free. For so many Sundays now, we always attend the 6:30 am masses in town. There are always online sites for national dailies if one wants to be updated with the headlines which almost always deals with extra-judicial killings. It’s not really good to be reading those news reports that only make you feel that the present government is doing nothing. I pity my country, in nine months since their president occupied Malacanang, it’s one big ride downwards.
Today we celebrate Divine Mercy Sunday, a feast day in the Catholic Church. It is celebrated on the Sunday after Easter, the Octave of Easter. I will always remember my former boss at the bank, she was the one who initiated that we pray the 3 O’clock Prayer to the Divine Mercy every day. I’ve come to memorize the prayer. This hour of Great Mercy promises tremendous grace in our lives.
So yesterday was a family celebration of Mom’s birthday. It’s one of those day worth-remembering again not so much of the food (though we have plenty of it) but more of the camaraderie and the laughter when our baby Nate is around. I think he will always be the life of a party. I have some food magazines here and Nate pointed at one of the covers and told his dad that he wanted something similar to eat soon. It’s a colorful array of veggies and meat on the side. We laughed while he pointed at the photo. Sometimes kids are taken by colors although they are the first to figure out that a certain taste is not to their liking. I am glad that Nate eat his vegetables more than her daddy does 🙂
Have I told you that I finally changed my Aldiko e-reader to Moonreader? Moonreader seems the better option for my e-books, it is easier to navigate and to follow. Since I started reading e-books a few years ago, it has always been Aldiko but I guess it is no longer that user-friendly on my tab. I wonder sometimes that despite an outer device with a 10 gb to boot, I still get the message, the space it not enough to upgrade apps. The only apps I installed earlier when I didn’t have my computer before was the BPI and WordPress. The tab comes with all those pre-installed apps that you cannot delete but are upgraded from time to time Facebook included. never mind, I only ever use it for reading and for paying household bills online. I want to buy a camera first before changing my tab. One of these days, maybe.
