mum's thoughts, simple pleasures, gratitude, Thankful Thursday, mum inspires

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas at home! I have been meaning to get some of these lovely poinsettias ever since I saw them in mummy Peachy’s blog. They are just the loveliest and they sure are oozing with the Christmas color and vibe. I was told they were available in a garden somewhere in Manila around this time but I haven’t found the time to go and check it out.

I was suppose to go somewhere early this morning after dropping the little man to school but unfortunately the appointment was cancelled and fate led me somewhere else {read: the gardens in Tabang where I got a pot of this lovely flower I am not sure what the name is and a pot of Citronella, to ward off the mosquitoes}. I saw these lovely rows of poinsettias on my way to Tabang and made a mental note to drop by and inquire before I head home to drop off my newly acquired plants and go back to the little one’s school to fetch him.

it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…

The poinsettias are kinda pricey for a practical mum like me, good thing I was able to haggle and the kind elderly woman selling them gave them to me at a cheaper price. She just made my day! :)

I am also thankful for a number of surprises I got in the mail recently, including the nice homework caddy I got for the little man, these haul from Sample Room, and my favorite of all, the Michael Jackson and Pope John Paul II postcards I got today!

Here are a few more of my thankfuls:

  • the beautiful weather that allowed me to finish half of my laundry early
  • the regular updates on the blog {did you notice I am keeping up with my NaBloPoMo goal? :)}
  • the new opportunities brewing for the blog which I am excited about
  • the full moon we caught a glimpse of on our way back from our late afternoon run

Lastly, I am thankful that the little one really enjoyed the tinola we prepared for him and was just about ready to have his second helping before I set off to write this post. And did I mention he also finished his homework early? :)

Your turn now to share your Thursday Thankfuls!
