Park and Grocery

Park and grocery are two of RJ’s favorite places. We have no lawn and backyard so park is the only place where RJ can run, roll, jump and bike with no worries. Going to the park is one way of having fun while exploring the nature and she loves it very much.

Grocery day is her most awaited day. We do our grocery only once a month so RJ is excited to replenish her rectangular snack box. I love watching her as she gets her own little cart and shop for her favorite biscuits and drinks. She is even looking at the price tag and put back the item on the shelf if it is too expensive. Our girl is learning now. Doing our grocery with our kids can be a good bonding time and a good way for them to learn on a more practical approach outside school and home.

I was absent from Mommy Moments last week so again, this is a 2-in-1 post. Happy Mommy Moments and a great weekend to everyone!

A Gift to My Bestfriend 20 Years Ago

I have posted already on Topics on Earth about my bestfriend Hazel, my buddy and classmate from elementary to high school. We went separate ways during college days as she studied in Manila and I was left in the province but we had our bonding every summer and went out once in a while when I lived in Manila for my internship.
When Hazel posted this picture on Facebook, I really did not know what to say. I was so overwhelmed. Why? Well, this little heart-shaped pillow was my valentine’s gift to her 20 years ago and she is still keeping it until now in her room in Batangas. Honestly, I forgot about this pillow. It was only when I saw it again that I remembered everything. My mom has these scrap of cloths and I used them to make this pillow with my own hands. I sewed it by hands and bought fabric paint for Hazel’s name and those little flowers. Hazel said she still has the other red pillow that I gave her and she is keeping it in their house in Laguna. I cannot recall what pillow that is but I am sure when I see that one I will remember too.

Sad to say I was not able to keep any souvenir from Hazel as we were NPA then (No Permanent Address) and used to move a lot. Every time we moved to another place, some things were left behind including those Hazel’s gifts. I am sorry, Bes. It does not mean that I love you less. You know how much I care and that I will always be here for you.

Our Talents and Abilities

Talent – a superior, apparently natural ability in the arts or sciences or in the learning or doing of anything. Do hubby and I have talents and abilities?Let me think of hubby’s talents first…hmmm…hmmm…I can’t think of anything. Lol! Well, Rhonnel is not an artistic person. He does not posses any natural ability when it comes to arts and crafts but he is very smart and very good in writing. I am encouraging him to blog but he does not like to because he said he is not patient enough to do what I am doing, blog hopping, researching, etc. Actually he is not patient enough to “butingting” or fix things. So whenever there is something to be fixed in the house, it is better to hire someone who is expert. He is very good in fixing computers though. He is my computer technician and we can save on that aspect. He is a good singer too. He may be not the best but he has this voice that captured my heart.How about me? I am hubby’s total opposite because I am good in arts and crafts. I love to sketch and paint. I am also good in scrapbooking, combining colors and designing and always open and eager to learn new things. As of now, I am making/designing a coffee table book of our wedding and trying to make my own blog layout. I want to do so many things. My only problem is I don’t have much time to do all of them.

I can sew a simple curtain, pillow case or even bed sheet. I can also hold a saw and hammer and make a small shelf or table and chair.  And one more thing, I am good in analysis. I can read a diagram and easily figure out how things are being assembled. So even Rhonnel is not patient to fix things, it is okay for us to buy those furniture to be assembled because I am the one doing that.Sorry, guys if this sounds bragging again. Actually it is only now that I realized I can do so many things.
