Of Apples and Deer

This morning [while waiting for the school bus] Brandon and I went outback again to scatter apples on the ground. We have been doing it for almost 3 weeks now. Hubby brought home bags of apples for the deer. But we can share the apples too just have to choose the good ones. I usually have apples for breakfast and chop them to go with my cereals.

This morning we still found some of those apples that we put there the other day. They are still there untouched. It is indicative that the deer have not been there for a while. It is conclusive that the deer are not roaming outback like they used to. It is a proof that they know it is hunting season so they stay away from places where they know they will get in trouble. And they don't wanna end up as one of Hubby's trophies. Hahahaha.


Elow! yah Fall is great! It's not that cold and not that hot either. Just the right temperature. I haven't went through Spring so I really can't say how spring is like.

Wala akong mga bagong pics. Wala kasi akong photographer hahaha! Sawa nah kasi ako sa palaging face shots ko hahaha.

Hindi rin nga ako nakakasimba eh. There's a church near by but I have work so I can't go. And oh yeah church scandals like those can really be discouraging but priests are also human beings who sins on the second hand right?

Anyway hope you have a great week! HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

@Vince... hello busy guy I knew you will like autumn it's very different and amazing. wala kasi tayo non sa pinas eh. puro lagas lang na dahon pero di nagiiba ang kulay. hahaha
Ruthi said…
@ Pchi... oo nga at ayoko na ng isa pang trophy anoh. Miss ko ang banana yang sa atin mas matamis.

@ Bechai... you are right. Do you know that Brandon and I always have sightings of those deer outback. Hubby never see them. I alwasy joke that those deer only show themselves to those people with golden hearts. hahahaha
Ruthi said…
@Karen... thanks for the tag. I will try to find time for that.
Ruthi said…
@ Pie... yes, it was really nice to spread apples outback and to watch those deer feeding on them but lately they don't come anymore. Maybe they know that it is already hunting season and there is a hunter in the house.

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…
