Obviously, I love a house with sunlight streaming in almost every room in it. Aside from the fact that it will save me a lot of money on electricity costs, sunlight inside the house also symbolizes positivity for me. Sunlight streaming in can mean blessings pouring into the lives of the persons living in the house.
I would love to have a house like this. We used to have one but with the development of the neighborhood, houses surrounding ours grew taller thereby blocking the sunlight that used to stream inside our house.
I attended an event and a band played the song The Leader of the Band. That song makes me emotional whenever, wherever it is played. Do you know why? I associate that song to my paternal grandfather and my father. They are the leader of the band, our family. I just find that song sweet but a little bit sad.
You know ever since my paternal grandmother died, Papang (our paternal grandfather) always looks sad and lonely. Understandable since they’ve been married and together for more than 50 years! Even though we would do stuff to cheer him up, he would always smile but go back to being sad after. He missed our Nanay (paternal grandmother)! How I wish we can do something more for our ‘leader’…
This blog, Under One Roof, will get a much-needed lift. It is currently undergoing renovation, an upgrade here and there, tinkering of colors everywhere, and some TLC.
I will retain the theme but some tweaks will be done, that’s for sure.
Meanwhile, you can still browse around and leave your mark (comment!), if you feel like it.
Happy weekend sunshine-y people!
My sisters and I together with the little girl went to watch Catching Fire yesterday at SM City North Edsa. It was really, really good! Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen and Josh Hutcherson as Peeta Mellark are both great actors! They made us cry over some of the scenes especially that touching speech they made to the District 11 fallen tributes. My sister R said we should see it again and I agreed! Maybe later next week we’d catch it again in Robinsons Magnolia cinema.
One thing about my family and I, we are easily pleased. A movie is enough reason for us to be excited for weekend to arrive. A trip to the mall is also a cause for excitement already. Bonding over movies, food, and coffee is more than enough for us.
I thank the good Lord we are easily pleased and overjoyed over the little things.
It is a very unusual move that the Garcia’s did. They sold their farm for a much bigger one. The unusual thing in all of it? They are moving their red barn from their old farm to the new one! It is a lot of hassles since they can easily build a new one in their much bigger farm but old Mr. Garcia said that old red barn of theirs has a sentimental value to him and the missus they wouldn’t want to be parted from it.
So their son searched for a site for a lowboy trailer which they can use for the move. They are given one month to take what they will from their old farm and then after that, the new owners will move in.
It’s a lot of work but everyone in the Garcia family are happy to move into a larger farm.
At the end of the day, we always go back to our family’s bosom. That’s what I keep on realizing each and every time I find myself in a funk of a bad way.
I was inexplicably annoyed about something. I couldn’t explain it to anybody because I also can’t explain it to myself. I don’t know what’s bugging me. There’s just something annoying I can’t put my finger on.
I told my sisters about this and you know what? Without even giving the details, they already knew and could understand what I was trying to tell them! They truly know me. They know what it is possibly that I was so annoyed about.
It’s good to have people who can understand you. That’s what family is there for.
When we were younger, my siblings and I, we didn’t have any choice but to stay at home even if we felt like bolting out the door. We didn’t have our own money then and we were under the rule of our parents.
Three girls of almost the same age… there’s bound to be cat fights. Pulling each others’ hairs, scratching each others’ skins, and pinching each other painfully. That’s how we solve our differences then. Now that we’re grown ups and we have our own money, whenever we feel like bolting out the door, we do it. It’s the best way to diffuse a tension-filled moment.
Then at night, we come home with cooler heads and common sense in place again.
