Mushroom Book Stand

There's this blog party some of the Davao Blogger's are cooking up. It was Ara who informed me. Thank you. :)

--------------------------

I'm kinda loving my days just reading some novel in my bed, dozing off, waking up and then read, doze off again, read. Ahhh. Heaven. Then, there's the coffee or the choco drink beside and some cookies to munch on.

Yesterday, I wasn't able to get inside the house right away because the Rentokill guys are around who sprayed some chemicals inside basically to kill all the bugs/termites. They do it like once every two weeks I guess.

Anyhow, there I was stranded outside the lawn and good thing I brought the book I'm currently reading which is The Charm School by Nelson Demille. It's actually good and a fast-read but at the same time a really long book(630 pages small font).

I decided to just read at the wooden swing. I was hesitant at first because I was thinking there might be snakes around it because of the leaves. Haha. There are snakes outside cause it's pretty much like a forest around here. (Before, when we just transferred we did not have any screens yet, we would see snakes inside the house even if we were on the second floor. They would be in the bathroom, rooms and the terrace. I've had my encounter myself.) Anyway, I was thankful because it was pretty windy and I'd find myself looking up at the sky and then my gaze would stray to the rustling leaves and flowers around me and then I'd sigh. What a lovely day.

I loveee windy days when I'm outside, I do cherish the sunny mornings, and the rainy days when I'm inside. Hehe.

------------------------------------

Awhile ago, Jona, Pearl, Renel and I dropped by V. Plaza because we were thinking the "mushroom" book stand would still be around. I called it "mushroom" because number one it has no name, number two it's like a mushroom appearing here and there and then disappearing one day which it did awhile ago. Apparently the book stand packed up and went away and I don't know when they would be back. Too bad, there were a couple of books that I wanted to buy. Anyway we ended up visiting another stall a small one compared to the "mushroom" book stand. When we left I found myself buying two Luanne Rice books. Can't help it. *sheepish smile*

Basically, I don't have anything to share right now maybe I'm just soo excited to read another part of the book I'm still reading and I can't wait to start another one. *gleee*

Have a lovely week everyone! :)
