Just yesterday, she managed to trim off some of the dead branches on her plants and thinking of planting new plants soon. Her green thumb is evident for we also have fruit trees in the backyard: a mango tree, atis tree and calamansi plant. Since we love papaya, mom wanted to plant 1 or 2 in her small garden or if not on the vacant lot beside our house.
I reckon it would also be nice to add more garden furniture where we can sit and relax on the wing set and the garden bench that I found online whilst browsing Deals Direct and that made me more excited to have them as our next home project. There’s no doubt, my mom would be thrilled to know my future project and knowing her she’ll be the one to arrange them.

She's Got a Green Thumb

Clean and Neat
I was cleaning my room this morning and I can’t help myself to be frustrated on the way it looks. Sad to say that I’m not keeping it neat these past few days so I’m thinking of having it somewhat renovated in summer. First, I want the walls to be re-painted and have the bed and the drawers on their new place for a new look. I wanted the old pale pink turned into immaculate white paint. White paint will make it more look wider, neat and clean. I also need to de-clutter and remove some of the stuff I don’t need anymore but I’m afraid I can chuck some of my stuff for sentimental reasons hehe.
Anyway, if only I can have a room something like on the photo. A white drawer and room look so delicate and elegant. I was browsing online for ideas and the white bedroom furniture uk that I saw at The White Company makes me drool and want my room to be like that. Oh well, I better need to start purging and organizing my room for it badly needs a makeover.

Mom Turns 79
This is a very delayed post already.
Anyway, mom turned 79 on Oct. 18th and we gave her a simple yet fun birthday lunch on Oct. 16th at our home. It was just a family affair and as you can see she had a purple/violet theme on her birthday.
Actually, it was only last minute when I decided to ask my nieces and nephews to wear violet shirts that’s why not all are wearing the same color. It was so fun and not even those mothers rings can beat the happiness that we had during her birthday for almost all her godchildren are present to celebrate with her.
I’m just praying about mom’s health and that she will not be hospitalized or will not undergo surgery anymore soon because of her gallstones. Next year, when she turns 80, there’ll be a big party already.

Garage Sale / Ukay-Ukay
Many customers are looking for old toys but we only got few, a woman even asked if we have corsetts but we don't have lingerie. We closed our garage sale last Sunday Nov. 20, 2011 and will resume next weekend again. We’re hoping that we’ll have more sales before Christmas.
Another Year Older
Celebrated my birthday last Wednesday, the 16th and I still feel young despite my age. I went out alone to shop. Went to Greenhills around lunch time and I was overwhelmed with all of the stuff for sale there. I strolled the mall and bought 4 pairs of shoes and hopefully those will not hurt my feet anymore. Been looking for close shoes that I can wear when going out shopping or to travel.
Had late lunch only at Jollibee..lol. Just ate chicken joy and fries and surprisingly, I loved it again. Have not eaten them for quite a while so it satisfied my hunger. Bought a blouse at Plains and Prints and wanting more but my petite size hinders me from purchasing new styles.. arghh.. sayang… Stopped for a while at the chapel and said my birthday prayers. I had other loots and wished I purchased more. Oh well, I’ll be back there next time.

Diabetes and Actos
This made me recall about a diabetes drug that I once read because instead of making the patient well, Actos drug can make the patients suffer more because of the serious side effects it can bring. Blood in the urine, heart failure/attacks, liver damage and even cancer of the bladder are found out to some of the effects of Actos. As a result, the drug was pulled out of the market and lawsuits are filed. If you acquired cancer of the bladder due to taking actos, hire the services of lawyers to represent you legally in court for you can be compensated for the damage it has caused you.
Pre- Birthday Lunch with Family
I’ll be celebrating my birthday again tomorrow (Nov. 16th) and as a tradition I always prepare and celebrate my birthday with a simple lunch with my family or friends. year, I have 2 celebrations (one for family and one for friends) but this year I just opted to have one for my family. I’ll just go out alone on my birthday itself and shop till I shop hehe.. Let’s see if my plans will push through.
My SIL and I cooked sumptuous dishes last Sunday and they all loved them. I also loved my cake! I saw a design at the internet and had it copied and I love the result.
On and Off Internet Connection
It’s been a week already that my internet connection was on and off here in our house. There are times that I’m getting impatient with Smart for I can’t browse or even submit my works properly and fast due to poor and loosing connection.
I know I can report the problem to their technical support but sometimes it’s also a hassle to call them for it will take be about 30mins on the phone just to talk to an operator. Arghhh.. Now, Í’ll just wait for my connection to become stable and if not I’ll call them already.

Say I'm Sorry
Anyone can give out flowers, chocolates, cookies, basket full of fruits, etc. with a meaningful card along with it. I’m pretty sure if you do that nice gesture, you’ll easily be forgiven but make sure when you say your sorry, you should be sincere.

Away from Home
Now, I think I have to chat with my sisters again to know what they are up to.
