Beautiful Words

I'm a sucker for good pensmanship and poetry.  Sharing to you some of them that I found on Instragam. 

I need to get back on the track.

Planting My Own Veggies and Herbs

Saturday, January 27, 2018

I've been growing vegetables, seriously this time 😁. Let's say it's my current favorite past time. 

Cherry Tomatoes

Stevia and Mint



A few arugula I replanted that my sister-in-law planted in a big pot.

For such a long time, I've tried not to get so emotionally attached to any animals after Kikay died. The pain was so intense and it was so hard to move on. Even with the kids telling me how much they want to get a pet, we've tried to discourage them. 

Now my sister-in-law offered us Leila, one of d three pups. She's a mini-pincher. I'm beginning to accommodate the thought of having a pet in the family. It's not that easy really. I have set my mind to never again get one. 

We'll see what happens next. I have yet to part her from her mother. 

A Different Kind of Dirt

A few weeks back, we took work out of the confined spaces of our office. We needed something different and something refreshing. 

It was a breather and a much deserved break. 

Just a sneak peek of what we did, well, what most of the girls did. 

New Year... New Beginning

Tuesday, January 9, 2018

It's the start of the year and there is sooo much to do - at work and at home.

What better way to start the year than to declutter and organize things. When I say declutter, my dear sister has done that for us. She just threw away everything she thought was not used and that included my branded shoes, which as of this writing, must be in the trash or in someone else’s closet. I have no idea where it is.

By organizing, I mean putting everything in their proper order. And that includes my children’s stuff. Extra shoe boxes were transformed into beautiful boxes to hide their toys and tiny things.

Plus, we have decided to take out gadgets from the kids entirely and allow only two hours of television time. It is quite difficult for all of us. Trying to figure out what to do for the rest of the day. But it is all for the best. We'd like to inculcate reading and rely solely on their imagination for things to do.

I’ve also started to learn new things as well: how to take better photos with my iphone and how to write better - essays, poems, letters and all. I've subscribed to Udemy. Well there are other platforms out there. There's Masterclass, Skillshare and others. I start with this.

And because I have to put everything in practice, consider this as my first essay. And here is my first photo (well, I chose this one for publication):

Nightlight of Davao City

I do not want to explain why the photo is such. If you like it, well and good. If you don’t like it, I really wouldn’t care.

Learning is never easy but it should be fun, well at least on my opinion. We have to enhance ourselves, not only physically, but what's on the inside. I will try to post more, if not here, maybe on my other social media account. 

How about you, what's in store for you?
