Today, I did...

The lead image was taken in Dasol, Pangasinan.

I was editing photos in Canva yesterday for my blog and saw the photos that I uploaded there. I forgot all about those. I was using Canva two years ago and stopped when I stopped blogging. Now that I am here in read, I think I will be using it again.

I went to bed last night and woke up earlier this morning with the intent of doing more here in read and noise. I haven't been in noise since the other day I think. I planned to posting there last night but because of weariness, I went to bed instead but then I wasn't able to post there still for I came here to read first and then I was swamped with work today that I had no time until now. I will visit there right after I post this one.

I started my day with coffee as was my habit. I sometimes drink just warm/hot water depends on my mood. Sometimes I feel like I really don't need coffee, I just like the warmth of the hot water as it courses through my body, waking me up.

I bought Benguet coffee two months ago but it was only three days ago that I decided to brew. Bad choice. Coffee is my downer. I am one of the lucky/unlucky ones, depending on how you look at it, where coffee will make me drowsy. It had been my habit then to drink a cup of coffee before I go to sleep that way I can sleep better and hopefully longer. Even though that is the case, I still drink coffee throughout the day. Good luck trying to stay alert while working.

Back to Benguet coffee.

I brewed 5 tablespoons at least or probably more in a small kettle maybe 1 L of water. What I do is that I fill my cup and when it is half full, I will add hot water. I repeat this process until what I am drinking is just water. I then refill my cup with coffee and repeat the process. The effect of Benguet coffee takes days before it wears of. So for three days I felt like I have been drugged. Until now I can still feel the effect of it. I decided to drink this coffee on weekends only. I'd better buy me another variant to drink during the weekdays.

Breakfast was leftover from yesterday's dinner.

It was our landlord's birthday yesterday and they were kind enough to share us some food - fresh salad and steamed tilapia. (This reminds me to return their plate) We had late lunch yesterday. Because of the effect of the coffee, after work, I went to bed early. Thus, no more dinner. So the food that was given us was our breakfast.

I spent my day between work and read and other stuff. More coffee.

Just before lunchtime, my brother came. He is spending most of this time at our family home now for he is the one processing papers for our house - the house that we are still building until now.

Since I'm still busy with work, I just asked him to buy pizza for lunch. There is a pizza store where we live that is just two houses away. Right next to it is a convenience store. Across the convenience store is a school supply store and other stuff. Along the road are satellite markets and food stores. We also have a pharmacy and internet shop further down the road. Really convenient. All we need is a bank so we don't have to go to town to do that.

After lunch, my brother left.

I was able to finish my work soon after and decided to take naps. I probably took three naps. Waking up in between to check if there were still jobs to be done. Thankfully none.

It's now late so I'll probably just go to sleep later on or maybe watch a movie. It's weekend and I have no work tomorrow anyway.

I've read more of the challenges here mostly the question challenges. It was fun reading your answers and your choices. Some I can relate to and some I would rather choose the other answer.

Me and my partner decided to not avail the staycation we planned and gave it to someone else. I will talk about that later and make a blog about it.

We went out last Monday and bought soil and pots to repot some of the plants we have. We also bought rosal with three flower buds. One bud is in full bloom now. The other I accidentally knocked it off so there is only one bud left.

We are now in the middle of July. How time flies! How are you doing so far? Are you meeting your goals? I thought I was but it doesn't seem like it. Or maybe I am just being impatient.

It's been gloomy the whole day. It rained in the afternoon. It's a cool night which makes it perfect to curl up and sleep it off. I think that is what I will most likely do. Dream of being in Dasol again.

I've been spending more time here in read now than in other platforms. I do have youtube. I don't spend much time there but I want to build my account but it will take time. You can help me build my channel by subscribing. I'm not monetized yet but it would be great if I will be. I thought I can do that easily but it's tough to have followers.

How is your day so far?

This is my first post writing freely, without prompt, just letting my thoughts flow about what happened today. I use to write a journal, a diary, when I was younger. Now, platforms like this has turned out to be sort of diary for most if not all of us.

Gusto ko kung paano mo napasok yung sa pagbuild ng channel. Mamomonetize din tayo soon. 😊 pero baka mga next year na ako magfocus sa channel ko.

This was published July and now it is already September. I really have a lot of articles to read. Huhuhu. But with regards to my goals, nope. I have not reached my goals yet. It has been very slow for me for the past few months but God helps me just before my due dates.

"The effect of Benguet coffee takes days before it wears off" Are you sure you're drinking coffee? Better check the label because I'm not aware of any coffee that has an effect lasting days.

I'm not sure how special the taste it. Honestly, all coffee is the same to me lol! Maybe I should have my coffee enthusiast friend educate me more about coffee.

Thanks so much for the sub! I appreciate you.
