The mood it changes like the wind, hard to control when it begins

Can it please start raining? Not the sudden pours everyone else has in August. In the Philippines, around the last week of June until September, we’re supposed to be reenacting the deluge from Noah’s Arc. ๐Ÿ˜’ Okay,  I take that back. We are currently trying to reenact the deluge from Noah’s Arc. Our basement has now…… Continue reading The mood it changes like the wind, hard to control when it begins

Ornery

In my absence I have been preoccupied with wasting hours playing Ragnarok: Path of Heroes. I can’t say I’m disappointed with myself (although I should be) because I’d finally fulfilled my childhood dream of leveling up to a battle Priestess. ๐Ÿ˜‚  In all seriousness, last month has been an Epiphany of sorts.

Created quite a bit of panicking at home. ๐Ÿ˜“ I think Mother Nature’s gotten her chill back though, it looks…… Continue reading I need an Ice Bath

Much like briefing a new employee on the rules of the company and such. Dogs aren’t just needed to guard…… Continue reading How to train your Pupper
