I am blaming on the thyroid for my sluggishness I can feel these days. I've lost my mojo to be having fun in the kitchen, let alone, to take my camera out of the bag. Not fun being ill, really, especially when there's emotional moods being involved.
Two days ago last year, it was Dad's anniversary. When I wrote this poem, there was a strange urge to jot down what I felt that day. There was a tickling memory, vaguely came to my inner sense. I knew it was not me, because although I was unwell, I was not thinking about going to die. It came clear to my senses when I had a conversation with mum the next day, that the same day I wrote the poem a year ago... Dear Dad. My all prayers for you.
As you are unwell, getting this message from somewhere else can be a bit tiring. But, I am fine now, after my husband found out the spot which was so painful I had to let out a squeal. He had to go to a healthy shop to purchase various tablets and got back home testing 'muscle test' on me. If you're familiar with naturopath way, you understand what I am talking about: reflexiology and natural remedies. It's not that I am having apprehension on doctors or hospitals, but feet massage, hot bath, and herbal remedies are what work best for my body. I am lucky to have hubby ever learned these natural things, as lucky as I am that he's looking after me very well.
I am also a lucky winner who won prize of O Foods for my Potato Rosti entry, the trio divas Sara, Jenn, and Michelle were hosting. Now, I'll be busy browsing stuffs at the amazon store. Thank you, girls. I am so happy. You guys make my day.
Then, there was a message from Jugalbandhi in my inbox which was surprising, that one of my photos is nominated to be on the 16 of Reader's Choice. Although I may be not coming up on top, to be nominated itself is an honour. Thank you, guys!
Apart from that, I have been enjoying looking back my previous photos and putting quotes or proverbs on them, to be sent for Weekend Words my good friend Barbara has initiated. For you who love taking photos and have personal or fave quotes, you can join us. There's no hosting whatsoever. You can read Barbara's post on this following the link I previously give you. My first weekend words can be viewed here. I may do my best to keep up posted.
I can't write much but I shall be back when I am ready. Meanwhile, here are some of nature photos I took. I hope you're enjoying them. Cheers!
