An extra ordinary day!

Well, it is not everyday one can be invited to visit a 94 years old lady. In addition, it was her birthday that day.

It started when my older friend asked me to drive her to her aunt, the 94 years old lady, so  that she could bring her flowers and a cake. So after  work, we went to a flowershop to buy a bouquet for the birthday celebrant.

While my friend was busy choosing flowers, I took the chance to take some pictures around  the flowershop. I just used my phone, so the pictures are not so clear.
                                                       Here are some of them:










Decorations for the season


Anyway, when we arrived at the house where my friend's aunt lives, we found  this dear old lady  still wearing her bathrobe. She just finished taking a bath. But we didn't mind. Her boyfriend was there too. And take note, he is only 77 years old. It must be love. They have been together for 28 years now. He was the one who served us coffee, tea and cakes. He helped her too in baking apple cake. Apples were from his own tree. This dear old lady is just so adorable. Fun to talk with and still very much up to date.

Anyway, she got many flower bouquets that day. White roses were from my friend.

Being with this lovable couple who loves each other dearly despite of the age gap was really special for me.

She told me that he wants to collect antiques, that is why he chose her:)

This dear old lady has this beautiful scenery outside her window. 


Anyway, I am still busy doing some things with my hands like:

Christmas cards


This little Santa. An idea if one wants to give money as a gift....

                                      Pancakes I made for the elderly at work.


Tomorrow, we are going to have Sunday worship meeting, so  I baked vanilla buns to be served with coffee to those that will come.

Of course, my hubby deserved to be served first.


Vanilla cream filling inside. Hmmm.  My hubby was satisfied:)


Saying goodbye with this picture. Yes, the snow came in October!


Thought for the day

We are never too old to serve God

JOY

  15. what a beautiful post this is - the flowers, the love story, the vanilla buns with the cream filling in the middle, the pancakes, the cards you are making - you are a very creative woman. I am really proud of you being my kababayan... And the scene outside the old lady's home was just beautiful! Snow in OCtober - well that is really nothing to be surprised about. Even here in VIrginia USA where I am visiting at the moment, the temps suddenly dipped, and we are now in the low 30's (1 degree centigrade) - for me that is REALLY REALLY cold. It was a joy to visit you this cold morning, dear friend. My blog friends really warm my heart!

    1. just needed rest, stepping out of the picture, be off-the-grid. but thank God I'm back. Will follow this blog with this account. :)

  20. Joy, it's wonderful that you are so creative and willing to help others in the process. Those buns look really nice so I can just imagine it was a great treat for the church. It's also a good idea to make your own cards because it not only saves on money in the long run but it's your own original design for the person you are giving it to.

    As usual you always post some beautiful pictures of flowers, and I send my birthday greetings to the 94 year old woman. I bet she's seen a few changes in this world. And she has a lovely view from her home too, nice and calming.

  21. Thank you so much for the heartwarming comment Rum - Punch Drunk.
    This 94-year old woman is really admirable. She is an artist too and painted awesome arts.
