hibernation over!

Oopsie! I unintentionally hibernated… again. 😉  I wrote my travel bag post around February 2016 and meant to tweak and post it before the beginning of March but it didn’t happen. Sigh… I know, I’m terrible. -_-

So… what kept me busy? Hmmm… Let’s see…

Hiking

  • Johnston Canyon Winter hiking + Height phobia = FUN? :8

Philippine Election 2016

  • I campaigned for Duterte via Facebook. Yup! I’m one of his social media and prayer warriors… To be clear, I didn’t get paid for it. Yeah … yeah… I’m a die hard Duterte supporter (a.k.a. Dutertard)! Deal with it! :p

(I’m elated that in a short span of time, Duterte has already accomplished a much needed overhaul in the government… It’s a long way to go but I know he can deliver! Duterte surely deals with things like a BOSS!)

Game of Thrones

  • I watched all 10 episodes of Season 6…  I must say, it’s one of the best shows ever! Who are my top three favorite? Jon Snow, Arya Stark and Daenerys Targaryen. Oh! I also like Lyanna Mormont. She’s a badass! Need I say more? :p

Gardening

  • I’m not a green thumb but my husband is! (Yes, I do have a husband. lol)  I’ve been just messing around with the garden. Last year, I was in charge of planting and I might have been too generous with the carrot seeds . -_-

  • Planning to do a revamp and keep up with the times. My blog looks so 90’s. Ha! I’ve been researching for blog platforms…. It will take some time but I can make it happen. 😉

One day…. I’ll be able to post consistently…. One day. 😉 For now, I’ll continue sorting my photos and work on one blog post at a time. Gotta get this going! Aja!

… and I do hear you… I will do a blog post regarding the tidbits of my wedding 1.0 and wedding 2.0. 😀 You’ll be like.. “What? Two weddings?!?” Yes… two weddings.  Details soon kiddos. 😉

Appreciate your patience guys!  Until next time! 😀

gardening

My father enjoys planting and takes pride on his crops. You bet, our family house in the Philippines is like a forest full of ordinary and peculiar plants. I don’t know how he does it, but whatever he plants, it grows in tip top shape without fail. I’m really amazed! Ha!

In as much as I would love to emulate him, I seem to not cut for planting activities.  Believe it or not, I’ve exerted great effort and every possible ways in planting this and that, still,  it did not work for me.

Sigh… It took awhile before I realized and accepted that I’m not a green thumb like him. When my cactus plant began to die, that’s the straw that breaks the camel’s back. However, it doesn’t mean that I’m going to give up! Like what Justin Bieber said, never say never! :p

My interest in gardening resurrected when I saw my cousin started doing up her front and backyard during Spring time. I can definitely feel her passion while planting the flowers and vegetables. Hence, I grabbed the shovel and started to “mess around” with her plantation.:D I helped her till the soil then plant carrots, tomatoes, lettuce, and other strange vegetables in the backyard.

littlecorner & “flowerbeds”

While in the front yard, I artistically grow flowers in my designated little corner and “sprinkled” some “vitamins” for them to be healthy and blossom happily.  So far, the “babies” are growing fast! The flowers are so colorful and I can sense that they are kissing the sun rays with eagerness and joy. The veggies? We have eaten some of the green leafy vegetables, the rest are still growing.

It dawned on me that gardening relaxes the mind and relieves stress. I may not do this consistently during Spring and Summer time, but I will surely do it every now and then. Aja!
