Update on Dad + Flower Pics + 3BT

Just had a long chat with Mom. My Dad is still in recovery stage, so we'll see how it goes. At least my Mom says that now that he's at home, he eats regularly (usually he goes out for a walk in the morning to a nearby park and plays chess for hours and sometimes he forgets to eat!!!). They haven't gone to a doctor yet, but they'll wait for a while before deciding whether to go to a doctor or not. It does seem that the car didn't hit him hard, so I think he's going to be fine. :-))))

Anyway, since I've put too many travel pics, this time let me share some flower pics from my MIL's yard. These pics were taken last week. Yesterday I brought my camera, too, but the weather was awful, so I didn't take any pictures.

Next pic: Those bird decorations must be new. I had never seen them before. :-))))

Last pic: MIL, me, sis-in-law last week. Last week's Saturday was a perfect day to sit outside like this, but yesterday it was only 9'C and it rained a bit.

Well, I might just as well write my 3BT post here then...

1. Receiving support and soothing words from many people, including my blogger friends. THANK YOU!!!!!!!!

2. I'd like to thank Febri for having sent me some chili sauce and Indonesian snacks from Aussie (she's travelling in Finland at the moment with her whole family). Can't wait to eat themmmmm YUM YUMMMM...THANKS SO MUCH, Feb!!!

3. Our being able to save some money. (I just heard from Mom about a cousin who can't save money due to his circumstances - not because he wants to and not because he can't control his spending - and not because he doesn't try hard to earn more money, either).

4. Cooler weather outside ensures that we sleep well at night under the blanket 'coz the room isn't too hot (we have no fans).

5. My brother has bought a laptop with a built-in webcam and subscribed to a monthly internet package and I've also bought a webcam so that we can see one another when we chat next time (the last time I hadn't bought a webcam yet, but at least I got to see him and my Mom and Ken in action!!!). YIIPPPIIIIIIIIIIIIEEEEEEEEEEE!!!! THANK GOD for technology!!!!!!!!


  1. Lovely flower shots, Amel. I love technology as well. Since couple weeks, I chat with my brother, mom, SIL via skype. You have skype account isn't it. Maybe someday we could chat via skype ;)

  2. i like the pictures, that house has very nice surroundings, plenty of space.

    I'm glad your dad is not worse. Let's hope he'll be alright very very soon :)

  3. Thank you for your comments on my blog. I posted a squirrel for you, come and see :)

  4. Wah, lovely flowers, love the colours. :) Glad to hear that your dad is recovering. :)

  5. Sorry to hear about your dad, I hope his foot is ok again.

    The flowers are gorgeous.I love the dandelion!

  6. Yes, your pictures are nice. I agree about cooler weather, there's nothing worse than trying to sleep in 80 plus degrees (Fahrenheit)

  7. Jul: Yeah, maybe someday we can do it! :-D

    Rita: Yep, that's one of the reasons why I love going to their omakotitalo HE HE HE...

    And everybody, THANKS for all your concern and support about my Dad. I'll keep updating about his condition. :-))))
