A Day in a Farm

Yesterday, I met with a girl friend. It was a nice sunny day though a little breezy. We originally planned to have a little picnic by the lake but we ended up having a lunch in the farm.

The farm is in New Hampshire and it also serves as a Museum.


My girl friend toured me around the farm which is her favorite place of refuge.


The place is awesome and breathtaking.
 


And we got a chance to say hello to some of the residents too.
Thanks Leigh for bringing me to the farm. It was such a wonderful and unforgettable experience. I really enjoyed it.

You have made these photos look like from so very, very long ago! They are timeless, like something in a great-great-grandfather's photo album. And I love the curve of that pig's snout that you captured!

Ruthi, What a great old-timey Sepia series! I love the pig and the leaf-strewn path through the woods. Looks like a perfect place to visit in the fall.

This looks like a wonderful place to visit. Since it is also a museum I like the way you show most of the pictures in sepia. That gives a pleasing 'old-time' feel to the scene.
Thanks for taking us along.

This series of sepia shots are beautiful "aged" effects. It has been a while since I visited a farm, and it would be a nice experience if we can visit an apple orchard.

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…
