Finished Other Blogging Opportunities

It was one of my busiest 24-hour period ever.

I juggled my time to attend to some wedding preparations, write blog posts and paid opportunities, network with my other blogger friends thru Twitter and Plurk, among others. :)

Of course, I am not complaining. I am very happy because this means another set of paid stuff to augment my online income. :)

With a wedding due late this year and a house to start my married life with Johann, everything that will cause me to earn legally is worth my time. :)

Happy Easter!

Today marks another Easter Sunday and I am very happy.

Why happy? Because this also marks another day for me to appreciate my unseen blessings. Today I am going to give you a hint on those things I am thankful for:

  • I am alive and well.

Everytime I woke up, I sometimes missed to thank the Lord for the sound sleep even if it was only for a few hours (because of my shifting schedule). So today, I want to thank him for a peaceful sleep and I will try to do this more often.

  • I still have my family

We're only a small family. But since my Dad wasn't here, I am thankful that all of us are fine and we hardly get sick. I am hoping that this will continue, to have a healthy and loving family as I grow older and have my own family too in the coming months.

  • I still have my work

With everyone worrying about job loss left and right, I appreciate this job that I have in the call center. I can use my skills in a positive way and be productive in my own right. I can help the family in paying the bills and I can have some for my wedding budget and other needs. :)

How about you? What are you thankful for this Easter Sunday?

Bougainvillea Memories

Look at this wonderful picture. This reminds me of my younger days here in our house in Cainta. :) I remembered that my Mom will not allow me to play outside if I won't help her with some household chores.

One of my favorite chores to do at that time was to water the plants. I just love to play with the water coming out from the hose and you know what comes next, her voice telling me to stop playing with water as we have to save it as much as we can.

Okay, so I love to water the plants. I really do, if I love to give moisture to those greenies, my mom loves to plant those.

My Mom has a great liking for everything green, like plants and flowers. She would always set aside sometime everyday to maintain her garden and look after the plants.

Just like this bougainvillea in the picture. We have a lot of flowers like this in our garden. Do you know why I like this flower? Before, I thought that this was the flower thats recommended if you want to create bubbles, until I found out that it was Gumamela that I should use instead.

But before I found that out, I almost picked all the pink bougainvillea flowers that my mom caught me picking the last few petals. Hehe :)
