Honest Scrap

Lola, at What Lola Wants & Some Unsolicited Advice , gave me an Award and choose me to say some 10 things true about me.

So, here they go.

1. I am Catholic. Not just in words, I am trully Catholic. I try hard to follow the law of God and Church, against all odds, against the spirit of the world, even when people laugh, because I believe I am in the true path.

2. I am Monarchist. I believe that is the right thing for every country. A president always have to pay the votes to the ones who put him in power. A King was prepared to be it since he was born and doesn't need to pay the votes.

3. I am a working wife and mother and I don't like it. My work is very interesting but has no comparison to what is to be a full time wife and mother. I dream about the day I won't work outside any longer.

4. Home is the place I like to be - and going to Mass.

5.I like England so much that if I hadn't a big extended family - parents, brothers, nephew, etc - I would ask my husband to move.

6. Because that is not possible, I dream about buying a tiny house in England to go there on holiday every time I want.

7. I like the rain. I can't stand the hit and summer all together.

8. I long to be a very good homemaker - this work is still in progress.

9. I like movies very much. I also like to see history programs, nature, etc. So, between the time I spend in the internet and seeing television, I struggle to achieve the good homemaker goal.

10. I like my grey hair. I never pretend I'm younger because age is very nice and good thing and we must praise Our Lord for it.

I just realized I've been away for quite a while and I don't like it.

The weather has been very hot and I don't like it also. At all. The ones who know me know that I can't stand summer. I feel I can't do anything. But, well, summer is here and I must endure it for some months until autumn comes.

Having said that, let's go, one day each time.

I just want let you with some flowers of mine. They are liking the summer because I keep watering them, otherwise they would be all dead.

Look at them, aren't they nice?

10 years old !

Saturday, 6 of June, it was one of my girl's birthday:10!

I made a cake and it was a lovely day.

Yesterday it was her party somewhere else where there are birthday parties. There she went with her school friends. They had a lot of playing and after that it was the party with sandwiches, drinks and another cake.

Praise the good Lord. It was two wonderful days and she was so happy.

Hooked on Rain

Call me crazy, but I'm hooked on rain. The Summer, the heat, all those things most people like, I don't.

So, when today I realized that was begining to rain I could only hope for some nice good rain.

At first it was only some drops but even so the day was delightfull and fresh.

Suddenly, there was the most amazing strong rain falling down, the air was cool and everybody was looking at the window: rain !

My plants were all happy and wet.

Back to homemaking

Yesterday my big girls had their Sacrament of Confirmation. All the week was very nervous for me. Everything went so well, praise the Lord.

Today is the return to normal life. Homemaking in all fields, including ironing.
Also laundry washing, puting on the line, picking up and fold. I have already tons to fold and put away.
And cleaning and tidying up.

Well, it's better to go now.
