The joys of the month!

I just want to cheer you up this weekend for a change or maybe cheer me up because lately, troubles, problems and heartaches seems to hunt me. 
So I searched for the brighter sides of life like these flowers around.

I was planning to invite my mother-in-law for a dinner because I haven't seen her lately, but she called and invited me and my daughter for dinner. We grabbed of course the opportuniny. To our delight she served mouth watering dinner to us.  How lucky I am to have someone like her nearby especially when my mother lives far away from me. 

                                Found these flowers to cheer you up again:)

Anyway, one weekened, I was invited to Rowena's birthday celebration. When I came, everybody was very silent. I didn't know that a friend who was there just lost the father of her kids. I couldn't help it but cry with her. But we try to be merry too for the sake of the birthday celebrant.

                           And here are the forever young girls or we just want to be forever young:)

It seems that  these ladies just wanted to have fun. Weekend after, we were invited by Ronna in her place for a Barbecue Party. She and the other ladies prepared lots of Philippines foods, as you can see.

                        This is Ronna and the poor pig who gave her life for us.

Ronna's scupltures fascinates me. It came from our homecountry.

Sunset that evening!

Then weekend after that, it was Doreen's birthday. Me and Rowena caught her with her apron and asked her to pose with us.

Then the rest of the gang came. See how happy we were  although we experience battles in our lives too.

Flowers for Dorren!

She prepared typical Philippine's foods, so we forgot that we were on a diet.

But the star of the evening was Per. Ophelia's hubby. He put on a wig that made the ladies laugh. 
It was a very nice evening that we will cherished.  Thank you ladies . Until the next gathering again:)
