Pink Fridays: Pretty Lil’ Pink Flowers

I was excited when I found out that one of my favorite memes is back! Although I am quite in a fix because I do not have as much pink stuff as I used to, it would still be a joy to join Pink Fridays whenever I can.

To start off, I am sharing an old photo taken last year but is just as pink and pretty as can be. Most of my plants from last year have wilted and dried up for some reason, but I am thankful that this one withstand not only the storms but also the dry and sunny weather. The name of the plant escapes me, though, so feel free to drop a comment if you knew. I initially plan to put it on my parents’ grave, but since the memorial authorities are not allowing it, it ended up on my teeny-weeny front yard. Summer is the best time to grow more of these, so I am planning to get some more the next time I go to the garden center. A visit is long overdue as I am in need of more garden supplies so I can plant the seeds a friend sent me from Palawan.

Hover over this Pink Friday post for instructions on how to join this pink meme. Meanwhile, I am checking online now if there is a pink electric banjo I can share next week! 😉

another weekend meet up with my friends

me-time, weekends, friends

To say that I enjoyed our weekend meet ups is an understatement. I actually had a blast! + I am glad I get to spend two more Saturdays with my friends, before Ella flew back to the US. After our  get-together at Med’s place, we met up twice more in January. The first one was after the New Year at Ella’s place + the other one was on the 7th at Jhe’s place. The gang agreed to meet up at South Supermarket, where we’d take a trike to Jhe’s place.

We were running a little late, as usual, as a not-so-heavy downpour greeted us when we left home. Mum + the little man had to take shelter at the nearby sari-sari store + wait for the rain to abate. By the time we boarded a jeep, everyone else was in the meeting place.

Jhe’s home is really nice + we instantly fell in love with the place. It was not so big, in fact just big enough for a small family of three or four, but it was so clean + homey + I particularly loved the pictures + the bear-decorated Christmas tree + the lovely ref magnets! ^_^

Jared, on the other hand, fell in love with the yard + waste no time running around the perimeter of the area ^_^ He was also ecstatic to see his playmates again. He was up on his toes about almost the entire time that he was not captured in any of the photos here.
