Dreary Independence Day

Happy Independence Day to all Pinoys!
But for this holiday, ours is such a lackluster day...all of us are down with either colds, cough, or fever.

I guess I was the culprit, having hit with colds first, then hubby J, and eventually the kids. Blame it on the crazy sunny-rainy weather. Sadly, my boy had the worst week with on-off cough-colds, and now a fever. Let's just pray he will be in his normal, playful self come Monday for his first day of Prep school.

It is always unsettling when a family member is under the weather. All we could do is take proper medications, provide comfort, wait, and hope they get better.

Here's my girl taking a relaxing warm bath with this eucalyptus-scented Soothing Vapor Bath liquid soap from Johnson & Johnson's (thanks to my sis-in-law who sent it over from the U.S. of A.). Just getting a whiff of its mentholated vapor is enough to provide even a temporary relief from her stuffy nose. And I love it too!

Since I promised you that I will blog every Friday, please excuse me for writing my shortest blog to date, as I struggle to keep my eyes open for a few more minutes before I retire to bed.

With this post comes a sweet lovely blog award from a very dear old friend, Jen of the fab site Folie a Deux.

I happily accept this award. Thank you for the encouragement and for supporting my blog.

How to pay it forward if you have received one:

1) Accept the award, post it on your blog, together with the name of the person who has granted the award and link back.
2) Then pass the award to 15 other blogs that you enjoy.
3) Remember to contact the blogger to let them know about the award.

Here are my blog loves:
