During our last get together with my family weeks ago, we had fun sharing some things. My cousin gave me a tripe bath towel. I like it because it is colored with green, black and white stripes. The quality is good and the towel is thicker as compared to the usual towels that is sold on stores. I personally like collecting such bath and personal essentials at home as I often change every week of my towels. Thanks for the towel This will be needed by my brother when his trip abroad will push through.
It is a long weekend because today, Monday is declared as non working holiday in celebration of the National Heroes Day. I think that this is a perfect time for cleansing since me and my sister had been planning of this last week. Fruits and vegetables that I include are apple, pineapple and cucumber. Other vegetables that can be included are carrots, banana, watermelon and other enzyme rich foods. I chop each ingredient in the chopping board then place it in a blender one after the other. Blend until it turns to be a smoothie. I added a cup of water to make it easier to blend together. The taste is great. One healthy way to cleanse from within. I would like to do this every week.
Gospel: Lk 13:22–30-Jesus went through towns and villages teaching and making his way to Jerusalem. Someone asked him, “Lord, is it true that few people will be saved?”And Jesus answered, “Do your best to enter by the narrow door, for many, I tell you, will try to enter and will not be able. When once the master of the house has got up and locked the door, you will stand outside; then you will knock at the door calling: ‘Lord, open to us.’ But he will say to you: ‘I do not know where you come from.’Then you will say: We ate and drank with you and you taught in our streets! But he will reply: ‘I don’t know where you come from. Away from me all you workers of evil.’You will weep and grind your teeth when you see Abraham and Jacob and all the prophets in the kingdom of God, and you yourselves left outside. Others will sit at table in the kingdom of God, people coming from east and west, from north and south. Some who are among the last will be the first, and others who were first will be last!” Today’s gospel is about personal listening to God’s purpose into one’s life. many will call God’s name but in the final judgement, those will be outcast.
Capturing moments that are important is fun especially when you have a camera. This was true during our family’s get together last month. There were lots of relatives who came for a visit paying respect to the last remains of my uncle. Good thing that we were able to hire a professional photographer who exclusively took shots of all the activities including the people. He was using a higher end of Canon camera with good lens. Every shot captured was nice. Clean, clear and sharp angles. My cousin collated all the shots and made it as a movie maker and photo slide shows.
I had been required to do some document compliance and I have to buy a new stamp pad ink. It is a small block of absorbent material saturated with violet colored ink. I bought the smaller and handy one just for home use. My brother uses it on his job application papers by filling in some finger print stamps using the pad. I often seen this kind of office supply only in the office and I thought of buying one for home because it is already necessary and often used. The pad that I bought has already an ink on the absorbent cloth. In time of too many uses, it would soon dries up so I need to buy an ink that is specifically intended for the stamp pad ink.
My brother bought a lamp shade colored blue for home use. The lamp shade is one important fixture with variety of uses like diffusing the light that it emits in order to concentrate the focus. Very helpful especially when studying some books, notes or any kind of lessons where you just need to concentrate the light so that the eyes’ focus should be directly into what you are reading. The top part where a bulb is being attached can be bended in any direction depending on the focus that you want. The price is cheaper depending on the design and kind. I will be using this fixture when I will be doing my personal review at home.
I have all my time today at home because it is a non working holiday. Special holiday according to the declaration by the national government. I am able to use the internet in the morning until late in the afternoon. My cousin send me some pictures that was taken weeks ago during the wake and burial of my uncle. Lots of pictures are being downloaded and some of the spaces are full because of the capacity of the pictures being downloaded. It is very time consuming and it needs patience to bear with the fluctuating internet signal. The pictures are clear and it is nice to see the memories and the moments of that event.
It was a non working holiday Friday last week. It was the only time where me and my sister decided to be together to stroll downtown and also had time to bond after the stress of the past weeks. We went to some bazaars and shops and I was able to buy a gray colored jeans. The fit is nice when I tried it. Medium rise is better for my body structure because it can covered my belly and the whole butt area. It is made of spandex polyester. Warm ironing, no bleach, no spin dry. It is made of some imported material and the brand is uniqlo jeans. UJ for short. I can wear it with a nice fitting top or with a collared blouse of any color.
I was able to organized my weekend mess at home and yesterday I got a chance to call my father and my brother via long distance call. The network provider of my phone has a promo on making long distance calls which can be cheaper as compared to regular calls. There is a certain key to input on the cellular phone followed by the number. I can connect fast and easy and the connection is loud and clear. The charging is per minute at the rate of one peso. By making a call, I can talk more as compared to sending text messages. My father and brother were happy to keep in touch and we had a great time updating each other.
The school where my nephew is schooling just organized a musical group to those young freshmen and sophomore who are interested to join. It is actually the idea of their principal to create a band group to be able to develop the musical skills and interests of the students. Good timing because the school was able to hire a music instructor who will focus and dedicate on the organizing of the band group0. My nephew was able to do the demo and show off his music talents. He is now part of the band together with his three classmates in his section. It is very tedious for the school to organize this kind of group. He told me that they will be having a practice this weekend. Part of the practice would be familiarizing with the music instruments like the alto saxophones.
