I was walking the dogs early this morning and I already saw a number of kids carrying their bags to school. Summer vacation is definitely over. Since the end of May, I have slowly gone back to my routine.  I am back to working out regularly. Although you can see me crossing out rest days more often than crossing out the scheduled workout, I am happy that I still get to exercise at least three times a week.  It is better than nothing.

My erudite uncle left all these books since he finished reading all these before he left. I have finished one book and I plan to start a new one.  I also caught up with some TV shows I have missed.


I have cleaned my closet and have done some laundry. I have a lot more to tackle but I am taking baby steps. We are still experiencing El Niño. Weather is hot and every simple movement  I make leaves me sweating so I work slow to minimize the sweating. Sweat and I are not a good mix.


I have done most of the errands and obligations I need to finish.

I had the time to do some art.

This is for the Watercolour Gallery collab I am doing. Follow @wgcollab and @watercolour_gallery on Instagram.


I also bought pearlescent watercolor from so I tried them on this painting. Can you see the sheen on the petals?


My friend, Jasmin, requested me to paint this jasmine for her.

I was also able to insert some practice. The rose is not perfect. I will try again to make it look better. Hopefully.


I am doing art and I love it!

  8. Your artworks are wonderful! I’ve also tried my hand painting through my tablet because it comes with an intellipen. 🙂 But paper and pencil and color materials are still different.

    • Thanks, Kristine. My watercolor was delivered as promised but there was a crack on the case which I did not mind anymore. Secured packaging sana.
