A Full Weekend

In Luzon, typhoon Ferdie brought floods and heavy rains over the weekend.

In Mindanao, we had a pretty fair weather last weekend. Except for early morning mass on Sundays, I really do not have plans during weekends. Early Saturday morning,  I was reading entries in the qWhatis website. It is full of fun information that I lost track of time. I shifted to Facebook.  While I was reading my friends’ Facebook updates, I came across a photo of a friend’s pristine white bedroom.  I was so impressed by the clean space. It was like a hotel room.  I glanced upon my bed and I realized that it has been awhile since I last changed linens.  That afternoon,  I was sweating buckets cleaning my room. I would have chosen white linens just like my friend’s room but I do not own white sheets. I ended up with a colorful and clean room.

One of the best feelings in the world is sleeping in a bed with clean linens after taking a shower.  This is one of life’s little pleasures.

I slept like a baby. Sunday morning passed by like a melody. We had early lunch. After lunch, my cousin and I went on an impromptu trip to the beach. This is one of the perks of living in a country with 60,000 kilometers of coastline. The beach is just a few minutes away. We both wanted our dogs to enjoy the beach.  He has two mini pinschers while I care for my aunt’s large dog of mixed breed. I think the dogs enjoy their fist beach trip.

This is Joaqui at the beach.


After the beach trip, one of my cousins mini pinschers slept on my chair while I worked on the computer. The little guy got tired after all the swimming he did.

It was a simple yet productive weekend. I can imagine the dogs having this conversation. <3

  4. Lucky you. If I live anywhere near the beach, I’d be there everyday…jogging, walking,anything. Sigh…It’s nice to live somewhere closer to nature.

  5. you live minutes away from the beach?? envious much! hihi!:D and you’re right about sleeping in a bed with clean linens 🙂
