Everyone needs to get away from their routine now and then. Thank God I have a good friend who feels the same way
Not the kind where cows produce milk and chicken eggs are collected at the crack of dawn. It's a kind of farm resort, if you will. They do have a few horses, and pigs, and goats, a cow, a snake and various dogs. But it's more of a weekend getaway spot where they have built a large kidney-shaped pool with a two-story cabana on 15 hectares of land.
They are like family to us. I think it's because we're both single moms. She has three and my one, together with hers, are like siblings. Before we head for their farm in Bataan, we went to church and kind of hung out. Red played
drums Sunday morning with the grown-ups and then I took the big kids to have lunch while we waited for my friend, Len, and Red to finish with their stuff.
The girls tried on dresses and then we ate at Pancake House. I was having a bad hair day that day so on a whim I decided to get it cut. It's not normally a wise thing to do something like that! And many an emotional woman have been reduced to tears because of a curl, or a color, or a relaxing, done without any foresight. But it was one of those moments wherein I said to myself, "Just do it!"
So while I made a beeline for a nearby reputable salon, Kyera, Nikki and her brother Miguel fooled around with the camera and had cupcakes a block away. Not before taking pictures of ourselves over lunch, which by the way, were taken with an Olympus E-410D that I'm reviewing for a newspaper article.
So while I was getting my short hair cut even shorter, the kids got cupcakes and took more pictures. I should actually have them write the article for me! They're actually pretty good photographers. My daughter will post pics on her blog. Sorry.
I can honestly say that Len and her kids are some of the people I will miss the most when we leave for the US next month. But for more on that, you'll have to read my other blog, exits and entrances.
Oh! Here's me and my new hair. Cheers to random hair decisions and the joy of being with the people you love.
I hope your weekend was just as fab.
