I have always thought of myself as a simple person. While I also have an eye for the finer things in life, I make sure to live within (and sometimes even below!) my means. In fact, I still hate it when I go impulse shopping, but lately, I’ve been reminding myself that it’s okay to indulge once in a while and reward myself for my hard work all these years. So yeah, I can say I’m still the simple Edel that my family and true friends know by heart.
Last weekend was memorable and fun. On Saturday, the hubby and I celebrated our little angel’s 7th birthday in heaven by hearing the anticipated mass at St. Michael the Archangel Shrine in Malacañang, visiting his niche housed in that same church complex, and having dinner at Wok Inn Restaurant in Malate with our former La Cocina boss, Dr. Ramon Legarda.
On Sunday, we went to the condo again and swam in the pool. We just brought some sandwiches and chips so we had something to eat while there. We then spent the rest of the day at S&R Baclaran (to catch the last day of the members’ treat) and at home.
So last weekend was kinda hectic but fun. The condo unit we bought in Bacoor was turned over to us last week. We visited it and got to hang out at the massive lounge there and try one of the swimming pools at the garden area. So far, so good.
We also celebrated our family pet’s second birthday by buying him a cake. He’s grown so big and super kulit and he continues to bring joy into our lives. We love him dearly.
Last weekend was restful and so we felt grateful, hence, the title of this post. Haha. More time with family means having to do things with them such as going to the wet market, doing the grocery, going to church to attend mass, and just bonding with them. Spending most of our weekend at home these past months has proven to be beneficial to the hubby and me, psychologically and financially speaking. To more weekends like this!
Last weekend was ordinary but fun. The hubby and I spent it resting and bonding with our extended families at home. I think we only went out to go to church and the supermarket and to dine out because my sister Nyam wanted to treat us to dinner and coffee (who are we to decline, right?). I love weekends like this that don’t require a lot of thinking and planning. Busy weekends are okay with me, too, as long as I’m doing things with the people I love.
Last long weekend was quiet but fun. The hubby and I were mostly at home. We went out on Saturday with my PILs to attend the anticipated mass at the church we frequent and then dine out for dinner after. On Sunday, we drove to Malabon to my MIL’s brother’s place to visit him and his big, happy family. We did nothing on Monday; we just tried to re-energize ourselves and prepare for the coming work week.
