Like my mother, I was so engrossed with growing plants when I was young.  I used to grow vegetables and flowers.  Since we have a wide space at the back of our house, my mother decided to make it into a vegetable garden.  Nothing delights me more than seeing those beds of radish sprouting into life from those little seeds that they used to be.  Neighbors would flock our home to ask for vegetables and my mother would give them for free.  Our front yard having a wide space was also converted into a flower garden. My siblings and I used to plant roses, daisies and bougainvilleas. When it is time for the roses to bloom, I would stay in the garden and smell their sweet smelling scent.  I so love to do it!    It was our way of getting close to each other.  Gardening is bonding time and it was so much fun and I miss doing it.

I love flowers.  Roses and Dancing Lady are my favorites.  I want to have a flower garden where I can plant rose bushes and enjoy their smell once again.  However, I am no longer staying with my parents.  I am staying in a house where there no space for gardening.  It is quite depressing to see nothing but concrete.  No fresh air that smells of flower to breath.  Oh how I love being home.   
The school year is about to end.  I still have four more exams to go before vacation time.  For others, it is a time to go anywhere to relax and enjoy but for me, it is still work and more of advance reading.  I decided to do some advance reading because while browsing my prospectus last night, I saw two subjects that need some serious reading, Labor Standards and Negotiable Instruments Law.  I am not saying that my other subjects should not be taken seriously but these two need special attention.  And as one of my professors said before, vacation is not only for relaxing but also for reading.

Right now, I am studying for my two exams tomorrow but with my sister having undergone an operation last night, I can’t focus on my lessons. Until now my mind is still numb and I can’t seem to absorb what I read and I am starting to get disappointed with myself but I won’t stop.  Maybe I just need some rest and start again tomorrow at dawn.  Out of frustration last night, I was not able to got hold of my temper that I threw my book away only to pick it up when I woke up this morning.  I do not have a good disposition since I learned of what happened to my sister.  Seeing her writhing in pain broke my heart.  Fortunately, she is recuperating now and by tomorrow I hope, she would be discharged from the hospital.  Please include her in your prayers my friend.
After my sister gave birth to her daughter last January 3, the next thing she planned to do is renovate one of their rooms and convert it into a nursery.  Being a new mom, she is very much excited for her new role that every month she is celebrating her baby’s birthday.  I have never heard of a mom doing it, only my sister.  Yesterday, she went shopping with her husband for some good bedroom lighting for the baby’s room.   Like all mothers, she loves her daughter too that she wants only the best for her.   She is very picky when it comes to her baby’s things.  Even her choice of milk bottle and bathroom products made me close my eyes when I learned about the price.  Well anyway, this is what she is prepared to be so I can’t blame her for being extravagant when it comes to her baby.

This afternoon, we were talking again about some new more changes in their home.  This time, she wants new lighting for every room.  She said she wants some changes as she is getting bored of the rooms’ old look.  I do not know what is running through her head but well, if she can afford all those expenses, why not?
