Smells Like Vanilla

from the day jerome and i started dating and even now that we’re married, he has constantly put a smile on my face even in the most simplest little things or words… and especially on days when i think the world is against me ( yep, we all get crazy like that)

and today’s one of those days i turn my face like this     ^_^

i like the smell of vanilla, we sometimes buy those christmas-tree-shaped vanilla-flavored room fresheners but they don’t last for days so we don’t feel it’s “sulit” so we stopped buying them for a long time now.. but suddenly today (after buying stuffs for our print shop) he decided to get us an electric fragrance diffuser and i went all excited only to find out they cost higher than we hoped, my heart was a little crushed and agreed to just probably get those cute burners instead..

but few minutes later he realized he can just make us one! 🙂 so we ended up buying a candle burner, a tiny bulb, bulb holder, fragrant oils (lavender and vanilla, yey!),  and we have extra wires at home so now this costs 50% less than the ready-made one at the mall!

while i love DIY-ing stuffs to make them very personal, he likes DIY-ing mostly for practical reasons haha

so we are now going to be sleeping in vanilla fields (and lavender on other nights  *_*)

sweet dreams every one!

 

 

 

 

 

goodbye sugar

when they are gone, your life moves on..but you die a little, a little that hurts a lot.

i hope they know they were loved so much.. they are loved still and will be forever.

you will always be in my heart…

we love you babies…

Sugar n Pepper

No I am not going to share about food. 🙂 This is my long pending post about these lovable two and I didn’t even know I would ever use lovable to describe dogs. 🙂

I was never a dog lover, I never cared about them… until 5 months ago when Sugar came into our lives. I still didn’t care then but Jerome let me hold her for just a few seconds and then my heart melted. And I just can’t explain why haha.


  
Then just a month ago little Pepper joined the family. We’re temporarily taking care of him but I think he’s staying for long already hahaha – because he is so adorable!



Our home’s a mess every now and then because of them but I could not let them go. Now I always notice adorable sad-faced dogs in the street or other houses already! And these two are surely to blame this side of me. 🙂

just another lame scribbling (i’d like to keep)

i thank god for you
every hard day is lighter
when you make me laugh
when you tell me stories

i thank god for you
it’s easier to live each day
to face each fears
to reach every dream

i thank god for you
life became more meaningful
you taught me the simplest things
the simplest important things

i thank god for you
for thinking of me and twisting what might not have been my destiny

waiting for you

at night
beside my yellow dim light
i listen to the sounds
i wait for you

to wonder
will it end, how much further
and i listen again
i wait for you

until my eyes close
i dream somewhere and hope
my heavy heart slowly beats
i still wait for you

Weekly Photo Challenge: Inside | Beautiful Creatures

today i watched the movie for the second time

because i haven’t convinced my little sister to watch it and my procrastinator side just urged me to do it while eating breakfast and while cooking for tonight’s dinner too 🙂

(i’m supposed to be doing some work and other human life duties ;-P)

i have to say this movie really brought back the love for poems i had in me way back in college

nope, i do not follow or remember any poets, i just love how poems have that magical side – those lines that seem to understand what goes around INSIDE our delicate hearts [or maybe just to the very few of us 🙂 ]

the striking poem in the end was this:

there is a place in the heart that will never be filled

a space

we will know it more than ever

there is a place in the heart that will never be filled

and we will wait and wait in that space

what is really happening inside?

what is really happening inside?

and this hit me real real hard in the head that i googled where it came from (although the movie did imply it already i still had to search because i am hard-headed) and voila below was somewhat a full version or something and they just removed just a little part 🙂

there is a place in the heart that will never be filled

a space

and even during the best moments

and the greatest times

times we will know it

we will know it more than ever

there is a place in the heart that will never be filled

and we will wait and wait in that space

– Charles Bukowski (a German-born American poet, novelist and short story writer.)

and i agree so much to this that i had to blog about it, don’t i? that yes there is that space always inside our hearts that we keep waiting to be filled

so watch the movie if you haven’t yet and hopefully enjoy it the way i did

and let’s together read the the book too (because i haven’t yet hehe)

and may i attempt:  that what grows inside can grow beautifully that what goes in your mind  that what you believe in your heart it will surely surely be

and may i attempt:
that what grows inside can grow beautifully
that what goes in your mind
that what you believe in your heart
it will surely surely be

Daily Prompt: Bookworms | CAN

okay so this was really yesterday’s daily prompt (but maybe still today in some parts of the world 😉 ), but it caught my attention that i could say now better late than never, right?

but I’m far from our bookshelf when I read the daily prompt and the only nearest to that is this Yummy magazine my sister have – or more so a cook book for me [yeah i wanted it to pass as a book so forgive me 😉 ]

"The great thing about getting healthy is that you can start whenever you want..."

“The great thing about getting healthy is that you can start whenever you want…”

and so CAN is the word and Google gave me below image that perfectly answers all the questions lingering in my head these past few days – and surely to yours out there too, does it? 🙂

This is very true – no matter how things get so much messed up or all in chaos, when fear starts to creep in, there’s always that encouragement that we can find in either big or small stuffs. And the real power is when we believe we can, we really CAN. 😉

o_O i’m not a bookworm – this is just a book shot O_o
