Sunday Thoughts and Photograph: The Mojos Are Back

It’s Sunday and raining heavily everywhere, my whole hypothalamus system is celebrating yey!
Sunday is usually my laziest day of the week.  When the family is not out during Sundays, this is when you will literally find my body littering and loitering in every corner of the house except in the corners where the wifi signal is weak ha ha.  This is the time when I’m ignoring the dusts, the sink, the laundry etc etc.  This is the time when my being OC is in immunity mode.

Though sometimes my being a mother interfers with my lazy Sunday when hubby and kids specifically request for a dish or menu that they missed from my cooking.  If not, then we are all dependent to food delivery or eat out on Sundays. You can also call this as my procrastination day or whatever term that is synonymous to being LAZY!  yes LAZY!

Sunday was also (used to be) my union day with my lappy and other gadgets that’s why in spite of my being busy with my regular job and motherhood, I still managed to create blog posts from time to time.  Reading online about miscellaneous topics was also my time to sneak in my blog hopping. 

Then suddenly… for some reason that I can’t really recall (until today) I stopped blogging, blog hopping and stop doing things related to blogging.  HIATUS! Even updating my social media accounts became lesser, to the point that my Instagram “The366DaysAttempt2016” was also affected.  Though I have daily photos to post, my interest became as tasteless as the sugar brand “Equal”.

Today… tonight… I found myself reading stories in Wattpad, I rested for a while to stay away from the lappy’s heat but before I left my swivel I grabbed one of the books piled on my home desk beside my lappy.  As usual It’s one of Jessica Zafra’s which later I realized I’m done halfway with the book but… unfinished.  Just like the rest of the books that I started some six months ago.

After the book break I remember I was googling something when I chanced upon a link that mentioned about my blog site.

Bos Coffee

I won’t detail how this made me feel “emo”.  But after reading the link I started typing away.

Finally I am materializing what I have planned with my “The366DaysAttempt2016”.  I picked a skeleton post from my Instagram and created a full blog post.

The scene was captured at past 3AM on a Monday but this was a scene the whole day of Sunday, 14th of August 2016.

Books, Wattpad and Open Live Writer are all present on this Sunday – the whole day.   This means that I’m back to reading real books and online and OMG blogging! 

Hope the mojos would stay and not only an effect of my pluviophile heart and brain.

Today Is A Good Day To Write - Sharing My Pluviophile Playlist

7:55AM on A Monday, 8th of August 2016

If you happen to see a lady standing under the rain capturing the moment in still photo or video - that is probably me!




Up to you if you consider me insane. but hey don't you know this is the reason why I chose a waterproof mobile phone? So I can capture the rain anytime that I'll be caught at the moment.

Dunno why, but the rain is my cathartic to a lot of things, It makes me feel calm. Makes me think logical. Makes me break the hiatus on about anything. Motivates me to write (and I'm redundant on anything about the rain so forgive me).

Anyway, you might have noticed by now that this is not the first time I posted a rain video on my social media accounts. I think just the other night I also posted one. Though I didn’t like that one much because there was lightning and thunder. It's not calming nor cathartic. I like the rain but not the storm .

So just to make this one different, I'm going to share another idiosyncrasy of mine on being a pluviophile.  When it's raining I'm playing songs about rain... go ahead laugh!  But you might want to listen to my "Pluviophile List"

10. Rain by Creed
  9. Early Morning Rain by Peter Paul and Mary
  8. Crying In The Rain - Cover by A-Ha
  7. Rhythm Of The Rain By Cascades
  6. November Rain by Guns N' Roses
  5. Have You Ever Seen The Rain - Creedence Clearwater Revival
      (This is a 1970's song but I also like the 2006 Rod Stewart cover)
  4. Tag-ulan by After Image
  3. Ulan - (I love the original by Rivermaya but) Bamboo's version is gold
  2. Ulan by Cuesh
  1. Sa Tuwing Umuulan - Earser Heads Cover (Regine Velasquez cover when I'm feeling "emo")


I just listed ten songs but there's actually more.  What about you? Do you play songs about rain when it's raining?

P.S. 
If anybody is searching among my list the song "Basang-Basa Sa Ulan" by Aegis - it's not in there but I play it when I'm trying to annoy a person who's on emo due to a heart problem .   I usually play this song when the person is least expecting it and it never fails to make everybody laugh ha ha.

Random Thoughts: There Is Always Something To Be Thankful For Everyday – A Special Thanksgiving Post

I woke up today in a messy room and bed disoriented on what day is today.  I look at the calendar hanged from a distant wall but it made me more confused. Not that I’m suffering from an early stage of alzheimer’s, it’s just that for almost a week now I am working on night shift because I need to complete a training course for my new job appointment.  I haven’t been getting enough sleep probably because my body hasn’t been adjusted to the new schedule plus, I came from a company party last night. All of these factors made my body clock turned upside down.  I also have cough and cold since yesterday, probably the effect of fatigue and lack of sleep.  Sigh…I am stressed and sick I know.

As I attempted to call someone’s name, I realized there’s silence around the house.  Ah!   probably everyone already left.  As I look at the wall clock to check on time, I instantly confirmed that I’m alone at home by this time of the morning.

Walking out of bed I caught the view of stack of old boxes from the store room just outside our room. I saw the boxes as if they's are giving me an accusing look and telling me “waiting for you”.  They are the Christmas tree and décor boxes that has been waiting for me to set-up since mid-November (the usual date that I used to set them up).  And it is just 28 days before Christmas.  Sigh… gotta move my fat **s soon!  Yes I’m stressed, sick, alone at home with lots of clutter and behind with a lot of things.

As I go down and straight to the kitchen I saw more clutters.  Obviously, our family schedule is so messed up (specially mine) that no one is available to tidy up the house.  The funny thing this is that in spite of all the clutters it doesn’t bother or annoy me at all.  The untouched batch of hubby’s shoes in the stairways (he never learns to organize his shoes in the shoe racks) instantly reminds me that today is Friday because he is yet to be back tomorrow, Saturday from an out of town trip.  Sonny boy’s necktie which is obviously lazily thrown at the back of one of the dining table’s chair reminds me that he’s wearing casual outfit today and he’s done with his OJT interview.  The (not so) little girl’s rubber shows reminds me that she’s wearing her leather shoes today with her regular school uniform therefore it’s not PE day today.

DSC_0485All of these made me smile plus the sight I found in the kitchen table (which has more clutter than everywhere else).  Pandesal, ham, cheese and a (broken) sunny-side-up egg is waiting for me.  Aaah just in time for my growling tummy!  As I prepare my coffee, some thoughts made me smile the more.  I suddenly felt the kisses and whispers while I was asleep early this morning… those sweet kisses and whispers of "love yous'" while telling me that they need to leave for school. 

These all made me smile.  In spite of all the clutters in our lives, there will always be something to smile about or to be thankful for. Some things which are more important than being stress, sick and worried.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING everyone!  I know that this is an American tradition and is not an official occasion in the Philippines.  But heck at least it reminds us to be thankful for our blessings even the simplest ones.  Isn’t that by just waking up this morning alive is something to be thankful for?  So HAPPY THANKGIVING to all of you!  Whoever and whatever. Cheers!

But wait… What is that blazing red light blinking at the side of my home desk?
