i ask myself, 'what am i doing here?'

Something about pressed flowers. Pretty... and fragile. I decided to make some with random flowers I picked from the garden. We'll see how they turn out in the next few days. Found inspiration here.

Another year, another chapter. I can't believe how quickly the years are going by. I can see the time through the subtle lines around my eyes (LancĂ´me is my current BFF), how much my nephew's grown (he's 11 and I'm about to look up to him, literally), people who have come and gone in life.

Aside from my full-time job, I've been keeping busy with things around the house. I swear, there is ALWAYS something to do around here. I have yet to install the security lights I mentioned in a previous post. Still working up the courage to deal with anything electrical. Eek.

Let's hope I have more exciting posts in 2016. 'Cause I'm off to a winning start with this first one for the year...

life and loss

I received news that my uncle (my dad's younger brother) passed away. I last saw him during my visit to the Philippines in 2012. I wasn't really close to him, but my dad loved his siblings and I remember he always took care of them...

It's a little too early for fireworks, but people in our neighborhood don't seem to understand that, nor have any consideration for others' sleep. Every 15 minutes I'll see a flash of light then a BOOM. Ahhh... the holidays are here.

Now didn't I mention that I was going to make an effort to be consistent with my blogging?
