The Big Kneeler

Another carpentry work of my husband for the private chapel of my best friend, the big kneeler.   I did not expect he can make this one.  The materials used for this kneeler is the mahogany wood.   My best friend harvested one of their fifteen year old mahogany trees in order to make at least two kneelers for the chapel.  It is really very advantageous if we have our own wood.

The Big Pizza

My first time to see this kind of big pizza in our place.  This was during the occasion of the birthday of my friend who is a priest.  He treated us for a light dinner.   We were all surprised of the big pizza which was placed on top of the table.  One guest told me that this is very common now a days to attract more customers.   For me, the taste is good because of the complete ingredients it contains.

The Basket

I was so happy to have this basket.  This was the idea of my husband to buy one.   Supposedly, he wants to buy a basket from Antequera, Bohol which is noted to have  a major industry of cottage basket weaving.  But I told him, the place is a little bit far from our residence.  Besides, we are not planning to buy a hundreds of stocks.  So, when we went to the the market place in our hometown, we decided to buy a basket which was sold by an ambulant vendor inside the market.  It was made of bamboo materials.  We used the basket for stocking of leftover food for our animals.  We hanged it so that the ants cannot crawl on the food stocks.

Altar Table

Below is the picture of the altar table for the private chapel of my family friend which was made by my hubby last August 2014.   I persuaded him to do the work as the labor cost of it is too expensive if other carpenters have done it.   The wood materials were provided by the owner.  It came matured mahogany trees she owned near their house.  The four small posts which were decorated in front of the altar table were made of molave tugas tree which we harvested from our backyard.  We will still put a carving of the Agnus Dei at the center of the front view soon.

Natural Source of Iodine

The picture below is one of the seaweeds found in our place.   It is edible.  Based on my research, it is one of the natural source of iodine needed for our body.   I always encourage my kids to eat this kind of food than obtain it from food supplements which is mostly synthetic.  I like this kind of sea vegetable because it is soft.

Carved Sofa

Last August 19, 2014, I visited my cousin who is a leader of a choir group.  When I went to her place, her housekeeper told me to wait at the front desk of the hotel she owned as her house is just located at the back of this villa.   When I entered the place, I saw at once the carved sofa without upholstery .  I think it is an antique finished sofa made of hard wood.   I am attracted to this kind of furniture as if the style will not fade.

Sound System

In the first week of July 2014, I went to the house of our Barrio Secretary to get a certification which I need to support my petition for correction of the technical description of the lot where my house is located.  When he saw me, he was so excited to tell to me about the coming foundation day of our village which will be on the third week of July 2014.  He asked me if I knew of some owners who owned a sound system with Vox Amps .  I asked him in return why he was so interested with this kind of electric component.  When he gave me his reasons, I just knew that it is a high powered amplifier.  Deep inside me I admire of his being so concerned for the success of the big day in our place

The Hard Rain

The month of August 2014 is a rainy time in our place.  One afternoon, it rained hard.  I was inside our house all alone.  What I did was to take a  picture of  it.   I was suddenly filled with wonder of what I saw in the picture.   It looks refreshing.  The coconuts trees and all the plants that surround our house was filled with water.   I was so happy as the dry season is already over.
