Hello! What’s up with the long two weeks that I haven’t blogged, you may wonder. The past 2 weeks have been crazy busy and it has taken a toll. I just wanted to really relax the past weekend. Work hard, relax harder.
My mom is feeling much better. For a while there, I thought this might be our last Mother’s Day with the way she’s been feeling. It’s hard to see a parent go through cancer; there are the many ups and downs of emotions. We are now in one of those up stages. She is back to feeling herself and I can breathe a sigh of relief. Thank goodness for medicines these days as it helps the remaining years happy ones. I can’t thank people enough who unselfishly donate to find a cure for this disease. For any disease. The mind and spirit is so strong. I admire people who have limited time yet they live life to the fullest.
So, we were coming back from spending a wonderful time out in the country visiting friends when we saw this sunset. Earlier, we had seen one of those paragliding planes glide across the sky with the sun in the background. The dude landed before I could snap his picture and post online (lol) so we saw this scene here. I jumped out of the car, ran across the road and took this one instead. As we drove off, my mom mentioned how she is not looking forward to June 21st as the sun disappear faster as the result of shorter days thereafter. She loves the long days of sun where you can fit in as much activity while the sun is up.
Which brings me to a question a blogger asked her subscribers.
What are at least 3 things that you want to do for the first time before the year ends?
Here are mine.
1. Go see some hot air balloons.
2. Go jet skiing.
3. Buy myself an awesome archery set and channel my inner Katniss. Actually, I was doing archery way before the movie came out. I just wasn’t shooting at animals. I saw this one guy target an aspirin pill with his arrow and hit it! What a boss! Impressive.
In High School down in Brazil, they introduced archery during Field Day and I set a record and won first place. Since then, it has been broken.
