My July

It's now the end of the month and like I did last month I'll have a re-cap of what has gone through with my month of July.

1. 77th!!
It was my mother's 77th birthday last July 22. We only had a simple celebration but my mom was real happy when I posted this photo of her on facebook wearing a hand-me-down dress from my cousin and the huarache Crocs from another cousin also. I made her see all people who took time to greet her and liked her picture and she was just so glad. Thank God for giving her 77 strong years!

2. Tomatoes.
Because I garden, I'm happy to share with you my tomatoes. It has now grown and has a budding flower. I'll let your see for sure if it will give me lots of fruits.

3. Cancelled trips.

My friends slash colleagues planned two trips that were both cancelled because of the heavy rains. The first was the Manaoag - Baguio trip but was cancelled due to the nonstop monsoon rains. The other was the one I called the "Manila tour" where we planned to go to Quiapo, Baywalk, Binondo and Divisoria but that day was welcomed with a gloomy rainy morning so we had to choice but to cancel.

4. Gone too soon.

My college friend passed away just last week and I was teary-eyed upon hearing about it. She was the first person who approached the very quiet me on our first day of classes and she has remained my friend since then. I regret that on the days that I've missed her I didn't push thru seeing her. I will forever miss you my dear friend!

My beautiful college friends. I will miss you Bheck! (The pretty girl in light blue sleeveless top).

 5. Beautiful people!

It was happiness seeing the people I see everyday for four years during college. I have just missed them so. It feels like we didn't actually age at all.

6. Mockingjay 2, Fear the Walking Dead.

At long last, I've seen the trailer of Mockingjay 2. I am just so excited to see it this November.
A new TV series showing how the zombie apocalypse started will be aired this August. I just hope I can download it here in the Philippines the soonest.

7. Movie fun. Happy faces.

We watched the local movie The Break-up Playlist at the nearest cinema.

So, there goes my July. It's been bittersweet. I expect August will be a tough month for me and my work. Lord, please guide me. God bless us!
