I’ve been busy with the postcards (yet again) and addressed three Sesame Street postcards to three Filipino fellow postcard collectors. This was a postcard I had gotten a couple of years back from Sesame Place, back when my now 8-year-old was starstruck by the sight of Elmo, Ernie and Bert and Super Grover. These days, it’s the postcards from Disney Hollywood Studios showing Star Wars that gets his attention.
I already have a copy of this which I had sent home addressed to my son, and remember that I had bought it to trade away. I haven’t been trading for the last 8 years but have continued to collect postcards. Alas, it’s time to weed out the postcards which don’t belong to my collecting interests so I offered them to Postcrossing Philippines on Facebook of which I am a part of. All three have been picked up and are on their way.
It’s a sunny Saturday here and I guess we’re going out for errands after the usual family lunch. I’m not too upbeat about it because I’m not feeling well. (Something we ladies have to deal with on a monthly basis.) This time around is particularly painful, but I’m trying to think happy thoughts to chase the pain away. (The boy was sitting on the sofa shoulder-to-shoulder with me waiting for me to finish with the laptop so he can play an online game that he can’t do on the iPad. I gave him a look and told him it takes me longer to write if someone’s waiting on me. I think it worked.)
Three day weekend on our side of the world as the United States celebrates Labor Day. We have no special plans. Just stay home, do errands, relax and recharge.
I plan to continue organizing the postcards, work on my Art Journal and my Altered book, write a few letters (penpals and friends await!), and maybe, just maybe, read a chapter or two more of my current book which has been mothballed a couple of months now, A STORM OF SWORDS: A Song of Fire & Ice Book III. “Kindling” (hahaha!) used to be a comfort, but nowadays, I’m not that close with my e-reader anymore. Maybe it’s time to renew the friendship, specially since I always have the work Ipad with me.
Three day weekends are going to be scarce and precious now that school is opening this Thursday for New York. My little guy is trying to enjoy what’s left of summer, but isn’t particularly excited. (Or he’s just trying to hide it.)
I just want to be able to sit down and paint, do collage, and try new things. And I’m doing one of my favorite things right now which is writing here. =) Literally, it made me smile.
I’m thinking Steak Fajitas at Chili’s this afternoon. =) Yet another smile. No guacamole for me, though. Everything please BUT the guacamole. I Except when served at Dos Caminos, I’m not particularly fond of avocados except as a dessert like we make it in the Philippines.
Lunch time for the mother-in-law so have to go and get a-heating in the kitchen. Here’s to a fruitful long weekend for those of us here in the US.
