I hope this blog post finds you safe and warm in your homes. Tropical Depression Carina (International Name: Nida) is now a storm and is wreaking havoc this side of the country as I write. It’s been torrential since mid-day and the winds have already felled some of the small trees in our neighborhood. Fortunately, we were able to finish grocery shopping earlier in the day before the rains intensified. The evening Church service which we attend got cancelled because of the storm and a power outage. 😮 So we just spent most of the day at home.
It was nice though, inclement weather notwithstanding. 🙂 It’s reminiscent of class suspensions back when they were still applicable. 😛 I remember waking up early but still groggy. @_@ Somehow, I was always up early during typhoons, perhaps from the sound of the rain on the roof, or the howl of the wind outside, or the blare of the TV. Or maybe it was this sense of anticipation that something good was about to happen. 😛 And when the TV/radio announcer would declare that it was Signal No. 2 and classes are suspended, the previously sleepy me would be fully awake with excitement! 🙂
That was a long, long time ago. 😮 Class, and eventually work, suspensions have become fewer and farther in between, and are now practically nonexistent in the adult world. So it was a rare opportunity that we actually got to rest and just hang out at home. 😉 I was also able to do a little bit of decluttering and tidying-up.
