Learning to paint

I've been wanting to do this, learn how to paint or at least be able to paint one on canvass and I know it is not too late to start even at my age :D

My husband can draw and paint, during his younger years he used to be in art competition in their school and he said he won most of the time. So it is but proper that he taught me the basic. He said before using brush and paints, I should start in oil pastel first and here is what I did last night :)

 the upper one is his and the lower one mine :)

 Not bad for a start right?

 Till our next painting/art lesson!

One year and still missing him

This weekend, we commemorated my Dads passing. It was a sad/happy occasion. Happy that we got to see all our dear friends and relatives again, sad that we still do miss Tatay very much. We prepared most of his favorite food such as menudo and lechonn (roast pig). I'm sure he's happy.

It has been one year-and still I can not look at his pictures and not cry. 

But of course, we have moved on despite the sadness and grief. I guess missing him is now part of our existence and that there will always be that special space in our heart for him. A space that only belongs to a father.

I spent 3 days in the province and we really had a good time with the kids, we went swimming in a nearby resort which we usually do during summer.

Today, my mom will finally go home with my sister and will stay here in the city for good. To my relief because that means I can now see her often. Our house in the province will be temporarily empty but it will always be full of happy memories.
