One thing that has always had me in awe year in and year out since I moved to this side of the world is how dramatic Mother Nature’s changing of the seasons happens. Winter, Spring, Summer or Fall — each season is marked by very pronounced changes that serves as a reminder that time will stop for no one.
Even as the trees shed their blooms, the carpet of petals that gather on the ground directly under it is yet another statement of constant change.
Twenty minutes to midnight and I can hear my boy snoring ever so lightly. He’s a big boy and has always been a big boy. When he was a baby, my mother used to get worried that his snoring might not be normal. (Apparently, none of my siblings nor I snored when we were younger.) The doctor assured me it was normal. Besides, it wasn’t a real snore — you could just hear him breathing more audibly.
I can’t believe we’re halfway through May now. Spring has taken a step back yet again with our temperatures dipping to 40. I wish the weather would make up its mind temperature-wise. I felt the heater and it’s on again. And to think I was getting ready to wear my summer clothes already. I guess not yet.
I spent the weekend creating necklaces — for myself. I managed to finish five necklaces in all — including the one for Lou and a friend. I revised the necklace for Lou to have a pendant of Our Lady of Lourdes as its focal point. I made one for another friend who is a devotee of Our Lady of Guadalupe. I have been on a creative streak, yet I have managed to botch up my necklace for the wedding this weekend. I had initially bought 4 strands of gorgeous pearls and bought an additional 2 strands last Friday, but when I put them side-by-side, they were of different shades. I will go and check out which shade has additional strands I can get to complete 6 strands in all.
The good news is I might eventually get the chance to do a photowalk through Bryant Park — maybe tomorrow on the way to my pearl supplier =) I actually did manage to stop and take some macro shots of tulips that had already bloomed and opened. There’s more in the park. Tomorrow, it is!
