Took a few photos this morning while the sun is up. They are the same plants but the flowers have survived the storm.

Our grotto which we had constructed after my treatment ten years ago. We used to have Koi fish here.

I was surprised by this lovely Adenium, the flowers are no longer split.

 

A cluster of pink Vinca. Sturdy blooms.

 

A single-petaled Zinnia.

I harvested Calamansi before the typhoon. The two trees shed off some of the ripe fruits during the storm. I need to transfer my Papaya seedling soon.

Have a lovely Wednesday all.

Today is the first Sunday of Advent. Have to hear mass early, the church is about a ten-minute walk from the house. I love the rituals and prayers while they were lighting the Advent Wreath Candle. It was just so solemn and beautiful.

Happy Sunday friends. Wish you well.

What a busy, busy weekend.

Yes, you heard it right. I ironed several panels of curtains, changed the sheets, replaced the curtains with thicker ones. Oh my, several loads in the washing machine. I’m dead beat. Good thing, the sun is shining. They would dry under the heat of the sun.

We’ re baking again. There are so many orders but not enough time to do everything.  Just helping Jovy and Josef to fill them up.  My goodness, I could not even take a taste test because I am avoiding sweets.

I was able to catch up on my reading though. I usually read at night. It’s been a while since I read thrillers and courtroom scenes that I really love. This love affair started when I read QB VII by Leon Uris several years ago. I am reading some romantic stories now for a change, and some are all about Christmas.

By the way, HAPPY THANKSGIVING to all my friends residing in the US. May you all be blessed  🙂 There is always something we are grateful for.

The very first time I blogged about you, I wrote this

 “I’m just so proud of you baby. You make my heart swell with love. So what they say is true, having a grandson is one of the best things that can ever happen in one’s life. The joys of seeing you at last – unconditional love, immeasurable happiness”

On your first birthday, I wrote this letter to you:

“HAPPY, HAPPY BIRTHDAY darling baby Nate. Yeay, and you are counting 🙂 How time flies, now you can walk on your own even if they’re just baby steps. It’s time to see the world from a higher place and discover many, many things dear to your heart.

I can’t believe it, was it only a year ago when your Dad and I patiently waited for you to see the world and hear your first cry? Was it only a year ago when your mom excitedly showed us your pictures while she was in the delivery room even if she was groggy from anesthesia? And I promised myself I would write about your growing up years. You’re one year old now and we’ll have more days, months and years to discover the world through your eyes. And may you grow to be strong, smart, healthy and loving and may you continue to possess that innocence so endearing to see in a lovable child that you are. And I wish you all the precious things that a loving Nonna could wish for”.

I love you baby, you are God’s greatest gift to us. We are indeed blessed having you in our lives. Again, happy birthday!

In between, we celebrated your birthdays  in different settings. You have your first airplane ride when you were two. It’s now your seventh year and you have made us proud being a smart, kind, warm, loving and lovable kid,

 

I remember you telling me when we went out during my birthday last month that you won’t have a party since your trip to Singapore and Legoland Malaysia was your gift from your mom and dad. You even said that you have no more money since you bought Lego toys there.  Did you enjoy the trip? It was a big “yes” shout from you.

A friend forwarded this early this morning. Another lovely message to share.

5:30 am

I was sitting at the garden waiting for the day to begin. The street lights were still on and it was dark still. With a mug of Swiss Miss in hand, I was also listening to the classical music on my transistor radio before the station signs in. It was one of those no-commercial break stations featuring those lovely music and passages from the Bible with corresponding reflections….lovely.

The morning is waking up. Cars and motorcycles break the silence. I got my garden shears and started  trimming the carabao grass. It has grown again in the whole month that we didn’t touch them. I stayed at the garden close to two hours and I didn’t even make a dent except trimming those so close to the concrete stepping stones.

That cleaner portion was the only thing I’ve done this morning.

I still have to trim the carabao grass here at the front of the house.

Only a grass cutter is practical here because we have lots of stepping stones  all the way from the garage up to the side of the house. I hope this afternoon won’t be too hot so I could garden again.

This is where my hanging plants are at the side of the house.

It’s a little tiring to stay in the garden when the sun is up.
