This is probably the longest I haven't posted on this blog. Don't get me wrong. I tried. In vain. I think I drafted a post 3 or 4 times already and they all ended up in the trash bin...well, virtual trash bin that is.
So what have I been up to? Not much actually. Life's going. Ups and downs just like the usual. Everyday is something I'm thankful for just being around.
Last month the little one turned a year older. She's getting closer to being a teen. And so I ask what every parent like me asks...where has time gone? Of course we know. We just can't believe how fast she's been growing. Everytime I look at her I can't help but be very grateful for having her in our lives. She's definitely the BEST THING that happened to me and my husband. I can only wish she continues to grow up to be the fine person that she is right now.
Other than that nothing much [important stuff that is] happened. I guess that's basically the reason why I haven't had the urge to blog. Well, the weather I guess? What can I say...it's still unpredictable of course. We had a wet week last week. This week? If we believe the forecast it's going to be perfect. No rain. Only blue skies and sunshine. Today that seems to be the case because it is really sunny and the sky is as clear as can be.
Oh...one thing that happened that I may not forget [like never?] anytime soon. I saw a SNAKE, well 2 snakes according to hubby. They're black snakes and are harmless because their bite [on human anyway] won't kill. Their bite may not kill me but seeing them certainly can. Where did I see them? On the walkway by our back porch. I was having breakfast 2 weekends ago when caught sight of the first one. Of course I shrieked like my life depended on it. It sent the hubby running from the bedroom. He went out and looked for it. He found it hiding behind the purple flower on the other side of the porch. He, with the little in tow, tried to coax [?] it into coming out so he could drive it our of the property. It took a lot of coaxing. When he was finally able to make it crawl out and cross the road, I saw another in the same spot but going in the opposite direction. Ugh! So he had to go back out again to do same thing. I was 'stoned' for a few after seeing those creatures to say the least. The little one is having fun teasing me about it and quizzing me as to why I'm so scared of them.
Anyway, I haven't seen them in 2 weeks. So maybe, just maybe they're in someone else's property already. As for me, I haven't ventured in the backyard since then. Our backyard has no bushes or tall weeds so that little creature has nowhere to hide there. But I'm still scared to go there...for now. Hopefully I'll get over it soon since we're planning in starting a vegetable garden very soon. Goodluck to me.
