Fill-In Sunday


Cat and nurse picture, cartoon, laptop
I believe I can deal with procrastination.
I need to go "Marie Kondo" my desk to reduce distraction.
It does not do good to lose my attention.
(And do other things that just cost me tension).

I find self-caring to be a walk in the park
(Well, not really)
But when I get started self-caring gives me this spark
It opens my eyes, I can see in the dark
I can fight my anxiety and put it in a halt!


          It is a late morning for me getting up from a late evening from doing homework last night. I should say from the early morning because I went to bed past midnight. Part of me is thinking, "what am I doing?" I decided to go back to college to advance my degree. It has been a year now, and here I am still going. I am two subjects away from going up a level. Doing school work gets my mind off the stressful situations around me--family, work--which I love. 

          I made instant Pho and added ground meat. My friends would be shocked, as I switched to non-meat diet since last May but it is veggie meat :) so it's okay. I plan to do some work after this blog post entry, then go to church. I will go to the gym for an hour workout, longer than my usual and try to do about 10,000 steps of the treadmill and other machines. Yesterday, I only did 8,000 :( because I buried my head doing homework and it is just not easy marching in place as I type while my head was covered with books and papers. Can you imagine?

          Good Sunday to you all! May your day be restful or productive or both.

  1. Very nicely done. I love your fill-ins. I love your kitty too.

    Going to school is hard when you're working. I so remember, but I'm glad I stuck with it. It served me well.

    Thank you for joining the Feline Friday Blog Hop.

    Have a blessed Sunday and week. ♥

  2. Hi Carin, thank you for dropping by for a visit. Hubby and I are encouraging each other to keep up the target of 10,000 steps per day. Most days we can but some days are just too busy to accomplish. Have a happy new week!

Summer is in the Air

It's June! I haven't fully experience spring yet and it's almost summer. Where did the spring go? It is still here, I guess. I am between what to plant outdoors? Spring plants or Summer plants in relation to the best season to plant them. Oh, well, maybe both. At least, the probability of frost may be over. It is usually by Memorial day in Colorado. I have many reasons to be thankful aside from the nice weather suitable for planting. It is also a good season to hike. Look at my two-year-old grandson. He is a natural hiker. He just loves exploring the outdoors, perhaps more than my son, his dad, wants. He would pick up anything interesting in his eyes. Bugs? Dandelion? To me, as long as he does not try to taste them, is OK. :) My son caught a fish after trying so many times. Simple fun. My daughter playing "hair" with a Fuschia headpiece my niece, gave us something to smile about. I am planting again. My outdoor tower planter is full of tomatoes both from store bro

Comfort

I harvested some greens from my indoor hydroponic planter . The greens can't get fresher than these, harvested right from my dining room. They are perfect with the Costco-size beef and pork.  I cooked six dishes. Most left-overs will be frozen for later like after-work dinner when most times, we are too exhausted to cook. I am grateful for the memory of cooking comfort I remembered from childhood in the Philippines--peanut stew, adobo, pork chops seasoned with lemon pepper, and sour soup.  I am grateful for the recipes readily available from the internet, the oven, instapot, and air fryer. I was able to cook 6 dishes in 2 hours, preparation time included. You'd think I was in a cooking contest under time-pressure. Only the judges (my family) are more forgiving and very appreciative of my cooking. I am grateful for the simple things I get to enjoy with my family--walking outdoors, however cold, before the snow hit--picture taking, and watching TV together. I am even thankful for

Easter 2021

It's that season again when the breeze is warm enough To go out in nature And the hike is not so rough The ground is dry enough The rock's not so slippery As we climbed the trails above Not so muddy but rocky There's not much greenery But a hint of good scenery With young growth below, yet premature Give a hope that reassures Then Easter Day we were looking forward to Came by and flew through A few weeks of preparation With our three generations Putting up decorations Getting gifts all ready Making food for everybody Some are healthy, some . . . just yummy The egg hunting that used to be for our children Some many years ago  are now enjoyed by our grandkids Who reminds us of those early years The happy birthday days of festivities The joy from those activities Makes me grateful for simple things  That has not changed Spending time, playing, and eating together Can bring joy altogether
