The Sunday Currently, Vol. 36: The one where it finally sunk in

Seventeen months after the first enhanced community quarantine was implemented and we’re back at it again just last August 6th. I just realized it’s also been nine months since I had last written something under this category. Anyways, so here I am again. This is becoming a habit now, really, i.e., me writing then not writing then back to writing again… reading And the Mountains Echoed by one of my favorite male novelists Khaled Hosseini. If you must know, I’ve been delaying buying this book because I’ve been looking for one that’s as the same size as his two other books that I got –– The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns. However, since he has another novel coming out soon, I decided to just get a copy even if it’s much smaller than the other two I’ve got. Now I’m really trying to read it slowly unlike his other two novels. Care to guess why? writing lists of things to do and more. I didn’t realize how much I’ve missed blogging until now. When …

The Sunday Currently, Vol. 33: The one after I took a long break

I can’t believe it’s been eight months since I last created a Sunday Currently post. As much as I had missed blogging, there was a time when I really decided to take a break from everything online as well as forced to take a break when my laptop’s charger needed replacement. And now, here I am, starting to get back to blogging again (for the nth time, it seems). Anyway, here it goes… reading several books everyday, which includes the Bible in chronological order, where I am now on the Book of Joshua. I have also started reading The Smartphone Photography Guide: Shoot, Edit, Experiment, Share by Peter Cope and Educating the WholeHearted Child by Clay Clarkson with Sally Clarkson aside from a few pages of Big ‘n Lil Sis’s books each day. Perhaps I should also pick up a fiction book just to balance things out. writing new posts and finishing blog posts that are still in the drafts folder listening to the sounds Lil Sis makes as she cleans up the mess she …

The Sunday Currently, Vol. 32: The one where I got my first online dating assignment

Looking back to the week that was, I can’t help but be grateful to God. There were a lot of heartaches and disappointments that my children and I had to deal with, but I am thankful because healing has finally started in our family, too. When things get tough, I remember to pray and praise God for His blessings, including my family and the challenges we face together. It’s not always easy to do, but it’s not impossible and I’m starting to get the hang of it. Go ahead and try it too! reading A Woman After God’s Own Heart by Elizabeth George and The Good Earth by Pearl S. Buck. It took a while for me to finish Elizabeth’s other book, A Mom After God’s Own Heart, but I’m hoping I’d be able to finish this one a little faster. You have no idea how many parenting and marriage books I’ve got lined up to read, while trying to read the books Big ‘n Lil sis are also interested in! writing about online dating (my first assignment) and some …
