Life Goes On

Hi everyone

I think it is not too late for me to wish Selamat Hari Raya. Hope everybody enjoys the celebration and the holidays.

Since the puasa is already over so it is back to the normal routine. Eat. Breakfast, lunch, dinner, not to mention the snacks. There's still a lot of celebration sweets and treats so tempting. Quite difficult to restraint.

Hmm. Need to burn the excess.

I have started going out for brisk walking in the morning the past three days. And today went on the treadmill since the sky was dark. I doubt whether I can maintain the momentum for sitting and lazing around and nibbling and taking bites on the leftover cakes and cookies is so comforting though am not feeling at ease at the life of a standstill.

Body and spirit need to be given a push. I must respond to that call for tennis. My sports bag with the racket inside is still at the same place where I chucked more than a month ago!

My garden plants too were being neglected, I always missed watering them in the evening because of me supposed to be too busy in the kitchen in Ramadhan. But thinking back it was really not the case. Maybe it was just me lacking a positive mood because even now I keep forgetting about watering the plants.

Some plants do not bother. They keep growing and showing good health better than ever before, water or no water. Perhaps they have long enough roots to reach for the water in the ground. And lucky too the rain has started to come.

The purple allamanda which I got tired of hoping for it to flower surprised me. It has started to bloom and there are few more buds yet to open. I am so pleased. After all, life is not that disappointing.

These flowers make my day. I think I am getting back into the mood to continue doing what I like to do to fill my retirement life.

Stay cheerful.
