of busy afternoons + country clubs

afternoons, weekends, mum's thoughts
playing the afternoon away…

This mum has been working like a horse lately, trying to run a household {which entails endless feeding bottle washes, meal cooking,  doing the laundry sans the washing machine + dryer}, keep 4 blogs running {I have two more which I haven’t found the time to update just yet!}, + looking after my little man, who’s been in his element lately, enjoying long hours of play in the balcony or the living room or in his playpen {whenever mum needs to do something + cannot keep watch}.

Needless to say, it has been awhile since Jared was out + we have yet to try going out one time to see the rest of the village + get some much needed fresh air. Afternoons are normally spend indoors as mum tackles the laundry or whenever we have plans of going out, the rain unexpectedly falls that we are left to ponder about the outside world stuck in front of the tellie.

Sigh, if only we live near a park, I bet we will spend most afternoons strolling along covered patch or playing in the playground nearby.

afternoons, weekends, country clubsOr I wish our village is one of those well-off ones that have country clubs inside + I wish that I can afford it. I bet we will run out of time exploring all its beautiful + scenic amenities. Jared will also definitely enjoy running + tumbling along its vast greenery + we can finally say goodbye to our usual afternoon boredom. We’d probably spend endless of  hours exploring the place, showing all the trees + flowers to Jared. A perfect way to teach him a thing or two about nature + how to love + appreciate it! We can also pass the hot afternoons dipping in the pool. I can probably finally enroll myself my son for swimming lessons. He will be thrilled, he simply loves the water so much.

Another great advantage of having a country club around will be the pleasure of being outdoors minus the pollution + with a better alternative, we can finally say goodbye to stressful hours of strolling at the mall to pass the weekend afternoon away.

When we buy a house of our own, I will make sure to choose one that has a country club or a club house…

I am participating in a blogger campaign for Florida Country Clubs by Bucks2Blog and was compensated. However, the views and opinions are 100%  my own.

  1. I agree with you. My youngest is stuck at home watching her cartoons or if she gets lucky and the weather cooperates, she gets to go to her cousin’s house which is just downstairs. If only we have this “community”, better!

  2. I would love the same thing to. But being a single mom, it would be hard for me to buy a house in a good subdivision near the metro that has a club house 🙁 Maybe if I win the lotto.

  3. I lived in a congested place within Metro Manila and I don’t allow my kids to wander outside because of the busy highway. Like you, I also wanted my kids to enjoy a peaceful and safe community.

  4. Country club. That make me think of Baguio or Tagaytay, places with a very nice housing plans and country clubs.

    Hi sis! Visiting from FBU. Hope you visit back!

    Happy weekend! 🙂

  5. where is this sis sa Malolos din ba?

    I hope that our subdivision has the same amenities with that country club, we have a modest clubhouse in our place but it seems it takes years to finish the pool…..

    1. there is a clubhouse in one of the subdivisions we checked out before Mommy Cielo, unfortunately we cannot afford to get a house there, yet. Maybe sooner 🙂

  6. I hope the officials in the housing committee will standardized it.. that all subdivisions should have a mini park and a clubhouse where the residents can enjoy and be closer to nature 🙂
