Every time I see this photo I took when Nate was just a month old, I am always inspired. It’s his hands and mine, a promise of everything wonderful, a promise of a lovely journey together, a promise of  a new and wonderful dawn in our lives.

I replanted Sansevieria  a while ago. I wonder why they are also called  Mother-in-Law’s tongue. How have they earned that name?

Put them in full sun at the moment but will use them indoors later. A few years ago, one of my cousins gave me a whole pot of this plant and they are now everywhere in the garden. I love their sturdy leaves, they easy to grow too and need little watering. thew are low maintenance, so to speak.

Some years back, I found this lovely book about gardening. How to maintain a garden, practical techniques for successful growing and so many lovely photos on each page. I just love it. Sometimes, growing perennials is easier than growing annuals.

Good thing I kept this baller which I wore during the 2016 election.  Mar Roxas on the go. Will be campaigning for him online. He is number one on my list of senators for the coming 2019 election.

Our taro plants are blooming well. They  have large and healthy leaves. Yesterday, I gathered two young shoots of the leaves and made them into a tasty laing.  Laing  is cooked in  coconut cream. I added a few shrimps for flavor.

I added three pieces of sliced seed hot pepper for that kick.  Yummy 🙂

Pouting Look


Sometimes, this is a typical  Nate pose –  raised eyebrows and that sort of questioning  look 🙂 Haha, I just smiled when Nissa sent me this photo a while ago.

I gave him that pair of pants last Saturday which I bought a few days ago, a sort of gift  for his good grades.  Nissa thought it was a bit too long but it is a perfect fit. He is just tall for his age.

Had an afternoon siesta but I’ve got a headache when I woke up. Then I remember this soothing balm that Jovy gave me the other  day.  The soothing light mint  blend of Eucalyptus oil and Bergamot essential oil.  It soothes and heal the natural way. Human Nature is a local company that makes use of locally grown ingredients in their products.  They have bath and skin care. And the price is affordable compared to other commercial products in the market.

I just love its cool effect on the skin  and yes, it is very effective for headaches too.

While I was with  Nate yesterday, I asked him if we could take his picture in front of Tom’s World.  It is an amusement and recreational center  with  redemption machines and kiddie rides. He gladly obliged.  We had a great fun looking at all those redemption machines but we didn’t buy tokens. They have stuffed toys of different designs and sizes.  I asked him  if he wanted the kiddie rides, he didn’t.  He was just happy with the small toy that I bought him earlier.

 

Then he said, “thank you Nonna for  my toy”.  Polite kid and he is so grateful with little favors.

Another birthday, another new year in your life and I welcome it with joy. It’s another gift of life for us both.

I love this  comment from a long time friend when she said and I quote:  Happy Birthday to Nissa and Happy Anniversary of your motherhood, Arlene🌺 

Time flies!  Imagine, you are now 36. Can’t believe I now have a 36-year-old daughter and a smart and loving grandson in Nate. 

I remember the younger years preciously kept in my memory box.  I remember those times you made me so proud of your achievements, both in school and at work.

I thank God for a loving, lovable, smart, kind and responsible  daughter. I feel so blessed.

I’m waiting for some pods to show their faces. The flowers are plenty though, just perfect for blue rice or tea.
