Precious moments!

 When I woke up this morning, the sun was already in the horizon. My heart leaped with joy. It means I can go out and enjoy the day.


I drove to the nursing home where I work and  me and Anna went to the library to borrow a film we can watch during rainy days.


                            And here is Anna. She was willing to be my model:) 


Inside the library. We borrowed 5 films in dvd...asssuming it will rain soon:) Anna loves watching film. 
And there was a booksale too.  Since we both love to read, we bought one book each. 


Before we drove back to the nursing home, we must take a picture of the flowering bed as a souvenir :) 


After I drove Anna to the nursing home, I took with me Gerd for a tour outside, so that she too can enjoy this day out in the sun. And we were both happy, as you can see in the picture.


And of course we have to steal  pictures from the beauty around so that we can look at them during winter time when everything is dark and gloomy.


And since it is summer, there are flowers everywhere.


And I could'nt resist taking pictures of this pink flowers. Don't know the name:)


And these white flowers. They are adorable!


I was lucky, I was not arrested for taking pictures of these flowers.


And yellow ones. 


And this is my flower girl, but we didn't steal those flowers that she is holding with her hand. We picked flowers from clover plant along the way to decorate her room.

That is why I love my job with the elderly. I can make them happy and they can make me happy too. 

Home again, but the day is not over yet, coz my garden has been neglected for so many days now and I'm afraid that the weeds has taken over my flowering beds. 


So here I am sweating and perspiring. But I just thank God that He let me have a garden to tend to. Although it is not a garden og Eden, but maybe a garden outside Eden where thorns and grass grow freely. 


I was not alone though in my garden although my hubby is ombord the ship. An Iberia snail  had taken refuge under the weeds, And when I pulled the weeds, she was caught in the act of eating some of my plants.  And they are many, so even if I kill this one, the relatives will come to the funeral and will invade my garden. Huff!

And now after working 4 hours in the garden, and a long hot shower, I ended my day watching a film and crocheting this pot holder. Then, night, night. 


Until next time friends.
JOY

    1. Thanks for d visit again and lovely comments Zaizai . Alam mo this type of snails are a pest here. Pag pinatay mo isa, darating mga kamaganak para kainin and dead body and they lay 400 eggs each many times during summertime. Kaya namumulot kami nyan at nilalason or else they will invade us. Minsan nga nakakakuha ako nyan sa hagdanan na namin. Gusto pa yata inside d house. Suwerte ano. Hi hi
