The Day I decided to paint again

Today, I finally decided to paint again and give my other passion a second chance. And so I brought the easel out from hiding. And set it out in the backyard.


It was already accumulating cobweb but still in good shape.

 

Then I brought out the art thingies from where they were tacked away for years.


And set them on the table.


When I was done setting up everything, I tried to get an inspiration.


And looked around for a perfect subject...


for PHOTOGRAPHY!!!! hahahaha





Well... I just paint next time.

Oh, too funny!!! But they are wonderful photos, they make one want to paint. I guess maybe you are also a photographer at heart! So here's the best way to blend both your talents. Paint, then take a picture of it and show us!!! Make it a regular blog feature, and we can all comment on your latest artwork!!

oh, I knew it, I commented here before Ruthi, but somehow internet explorer won't let me, so I thought it still went through despite did not get a response from internet explorer, but now, i am trying to leave a comment at google chrome, and it worked in the post above.

anyway, my comment last time if i remember it right:

you cracked me up, girl, this is so funny! at least, you were still productive and indeed up with many beautiful shots, one at a time, one day, you will probably have the inspiration to paint again. i always love your humor, amazed at where you get all these ideas and humor from.

Technical Support to Operate… our Husbands

Last night Hubby and I had a little LQ over a TV show and a back-scratching-com-rubbing errand that I used to do while we are watching TV. You see it has become his habit to ask me scratch and rub his back while watching TV. And yes, I ask him the same thing too. Why not, we have a saying… scratch my back and I’ll scratch yours, right? But last night he was complaining that his back hurts because he worked all day on the roof and he asked me to rub his back. I said no. Then, towards the middle of the TV program, my back itched and I asked him to scratch my back and he said no too. So I decided to sleep in the other bedroom last night. But he kept bugging me 3 times and asking me to move back to our bedroom because he said he can’t sleep without me by his side. I was surprised, because he would sometimes bitch about my snoring. He said it’s too loud he cannot sleep despite the fact that he too snores like hell [and I had it on video to prove my point].

Anyway, I didn’t want to rub his …

one year and we'll be counting

We did it. We made it. We passed it. A year of monotonously tedious ups and downs… a year of ostensibly constant struggle… a year of seemingly endless adjustment… a year of cyclically countless kisses and make ups… we are still standing strong – forgiving and forgetting each other’s shortcomings… accepting and recognizing each other’s flaws… tolerant and patient with each other’s imperfections.

And just like any normal married couple... here we are… after all the woozy marital roller coaster ride we did pass the test of time with flying colors. Here we are… after all the “I-give-up” and the “I-can’t-do-it-no-more” and the “that’s-it-I'm-done”, we still didn’t let go and kept holding on. Here we are... after all the innumerable hurts and pains we caused each other due to our own shallowness and pride, our love for each other remains stronger.

And so here we are. After all, we still have what it takes to be a couple... a couple with so much reasons to celebrate... a couple with so mu…

Panunuyo: American Version

Panunuyo is a Filipino tradition associated with courtship. There are lots of Filipino courtship traditions that are now neglected or taking a back seat in modern Pinoy romantic relationship. Gone are the days of the "harana" (serenade) because young couples nowadays have videoke to boost their relationship. But I am proud to say that I experienced "harana" when I was younger. I am not that old, okay. It was not that long ago actually. And it just so happened that in my province it was still being practiced "that" time. Anyway, I may be a Filipina at heart and a hopeless romantic that is why when I committed myself to this American guy, I had to convince myself that my being a hopeless romantic has to take back seat too.

When my Mike came to the Philippines to visit me, I was only hoping that he will like me and that the feeling will be mutual. I was just hoping that he would pop the question so that I could take the last train ride without looking back. A…
