Five days to go before Christmas.
It’s my favorite time of the year, and I really love spending this with my family. But this year, as we all know it, is a very exceptional year! So, while I’m stuck here in France, I will make the best out of it. I already planned some things like hearing mass online, videocalling the family, making embutido, preparing presents for a few of my friends, indulging myself on a cake from my favorite boulangerie, watching Bridgerton on Netflix…
Early last week, I went to the post office to send postcards and Christmas cards to my family and friends. I am excited because it’s been a long time since I’ve done that. I know I was way too young, and I remember that it was during the time when my dad was in Australia for a few years.
This weekend, I started checking out gifts for my friends here in Antibes. There is still some work to do in the office, and I am honestly jealous of those whose offline messages started last Friday, haha. Most are going back in early January, and I was usually one of them. Next year, I plan to go home and will make the best of it with my family.
I avoided posting for the past two weeks here in my blog because of work and some personal stuff. But hopefully, in the coming year, I will be able to post more content when time permits. Isolation gets into me sometimes, especially at this time of the year, and please understand that it’s not easy. If you have family members or friends who you think are alone somewhere in the world right now, hit that button and send them a message. You will know how that simple thought is greatly appreciated especially at this time. 🙂
Reading. A regency romance novel.
Writing. Reports. It’s what keeping me busy these past days.
Listening. I just finished watching a Filipino online concert from the Philippine community in Paris that a friend shared with me today. You can check them out at their Youtube or Facebook page for more details.
Smelling. I brewed some espresso for my afternoon merienda. Bango! 🙂
Wishing. For this pandemic to be over, so, I can go home and visit the family in spring.
Hoping. For a focused mind this week. Only three days at work, and only a few people in the team in the last weeks of 2020.
Wearing. jammies 😛
Loving. It’s a lazy Sunday. I always love a lazy Sunday! Did you even plan to do something on a Sunday?!?
Needing. I plan to go back to that book I am reading. I’m opening the third book in the series and guess what, it’s an actual book, not e-books!
Feeling. Sore. I think I was in a wrong position last night cos I woke up with sore muscles down from neck to shoulders. I took some pain reliever today, and with a combination of coffee (it’s my downer, actually) and the cold weather, I just want to lie down and relax (Plus, yeah, it’s a lazy Sunday! 😛 )
