Not much. We celebrated two birthdays in advance. One is for Justin and the other for the wife. The reason is that all members of the family are available during Sundays if there’s something to celebrate.
Justin’s birthday but he is at Wesleyan University the whole day and the wife is already in the bank in Balanga city, Bataan.
I have started constructing a wood-framed screen door for the “bodega.” Soon I’ll have the windows screened too. I’m planning to convert the bodega into a mushroom house—an obsession that is long overdue.
I have finished the screen door, and my legs and back are aching. It would have been an easy job for a crazy carpenter. But I wouldn’t hire one and waste my money for such a simple task that only requires patience.
Today is my wife’s birthday. But she’s working in Bataan. Anyway, we anticipated her birthday and Justin’s last January 15.
Everything is ready for the oyster mushroom house. Let’s see if it’s going to mushroom. I’m a little bit excited. Now I’ve got something new. Now I’ve got work to do.
Oyster mushroom fruiting bags are not yet available. Could be on January 25, as Justin told me.
Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao, the Philippine boxing hero, is going to fight tomorrow and it will be viewed on TV. It will be a sweet revenge against Erik Morales, who defeated him in their first fight held March 19 last year in US. It would be an exciting respite from my monotonous mushroom obsession.
