I have not done memes for a while now so I decided to join Yuuki’s “A day in my not so boring life – a 24 hr chronicle of your typical day“. August 1 was a pretty good day. I received really good news at the end of the day that I forgot what happened earlier in the day. I will talk about the good news soon!
So, I picked August 2 for this meme.
I woke up at 630 AM to walk the dog. I can hear his loud barking. He is my alarm clock. This is our usual route.
After I walked the dog, I had my breakfast. My typical breakfast is : 2 pandesal+ half a fried egg+ meat (made into two sandwiches) and coffee.
My cousin and aunt usually do the cooking. I do the dishes. Yesterday was no exception.
The fridge is quite empty so it was time for us to go to the market and the grocery.
We stopped by the flower stand and my aunt bought some flowers for the altar.
Because of the unfavorable weather conditions in the coastal areas, fish supply is scarce and super expensive. We bought these instead. (Didn’t I just write about my eating habits catching up on me? Ooops.)
Market time is also grocery time.
While on the tricycle home, I snapped a quick shot at the Rizal park. The park is undergoing renovations and although it is not yet completed, it was cleaned up for the “Adlaw hong Butuan“. August 2 is a holiday in Butuan. Butuanons celebrated the 62nd “Adlaw hong Butuan” yesterday. In August 2,1950, Butuan was declared a Chartered City.
While my aunt prepared lunch, I worked on my computer.
The lunch was simple because we had the king of fruits for dessert. Durian! <3 (El cheapo. We can’t resist.)
After lunch, I worked again while watching a UAAP game between Ateneo and UP.
UP lost. 🙁 Cheerdance is our only hope.
I continued with work until dinnertime. I forgot to take a snapshot of our dinner. We had champorado and dried squid . Yummy!
We prayed the rosary after dinner time. It has been sort of a family practice ever since my grandfather died in 2000.

Usually, my aunts would hurriedly turn the TV on after the rosary to see if they can still catch their favorite teleserye.
I went back to my room to prepare for my nightly shower. When I do not have to meet people (aside from family), I do not usually shower during the day. (Is it weird?) I shower at night instead because I sleep better that way.
I still have piles of work to do so I continued to work on them until I got sleepy.
I also remembered that I need to draw my August planner. Here is the thing: I got the printable planners from Alessa and Jen. I liked their planners so I wanted to ditch my own planner . However, I scrimped on my ink and the planners did not print the way I wanted. I took it as a sign to continue using my DIY planner. It was a simple planner envy gone awry. Haha!
After I was done with this planner, I called it a night.
Off to dreamland…

One of the perks of working at home is being able to watch anything while working. 😀 I also can’t sleep at night without taking a shower. But I do also take a bath after I finish my housechores in the morning.
Productive day! 🙂
I enjoyed reading about your busy day complete with pics. Hahaha. It’s kind off interesting to peek on other people’s lives sometimes. Visiting from BC bloggers!
I like putting photos in my blog. 😀
Creatively said 🙂
And yes, I live in Panglao – just transferred here more a year ago 🙂
Sigh… you are living in paradise.
What a day!
yes, here in our place too, there are shortage of fish already. hehehe. especially tilapia. But yesterday, we are really surprised since the price has been up by about 20pesos per kilo.
What used to be P180-200/kilo fish increased to P280/kilo. We had to be content with farm-raised bangusat P120/kilo.
what’s your work, kat?
it’s great working at home…
btw, nice pics!
I work online as a freelance writer. I work offline as a researcher. In both jobs, I work at home. 😀
that is such a nice work! you can freely juggle time and multi task. and no need to take a bath every 😛
LOL! True. I do not take a bath every day. I take a bath every NIGHT! 😉
Beautifully logged day! I’m glad you liked the planners. It’s cool to use whatever you think works best for you.
Thanks, Jen! I will use your planners in the future.
the pic made your post interesting.. I don’t have much patience putting pics eh!!!
Mine is up at http://www.pinaysinglemomsnook.info/bc-bloggers-meme-a-day-in-my-not-so-boring-life/
see you around…
I love putting photos! hehe
I saw some DIY moleskin planners that were very artistic and creative. If I find them again I’ll share the link with you. I’m afraid to join this meme because my day might look so boring! haha 🙂
I saw photos of moleskines with doodles. the first few pages of my moleskine journal are neat and pretty. I am now using the middle part and it shows neglect already. 🙁
thanks for sharing your day! it’s nice to work at home, i want to do the same…
it is challenging. lately i find myself working even on weekends.
Wow, I am glad you did not put ‘boring’ in your title like the original title for the meme, because your day sure isn’t boring and so productive! 😀 Thanks for sharing!
I am ms. positivity. I always see the bright side of boring.
ang saya naman work at home sana ako din 🙂
Nice productive day! I enjoy all of the photos it makes me feel like I was with you all throughout the day. 🙂
I love the photos. 😀 You do have a busy day.
What a lovely day! I really miss pandesal with coffee in the morning. What a beautiful place you have kath… enjoy being there.
Oh, I love it here. #hometownlove
I’m sure your place is equally beautiful.
Wow! I am literally salivating with that “suman” and “manga” and with that “tuyo’ also. 🙂
The picture of the dried fish is mouth-watering. I miss eating that. Love the pics you posted.:)
nice nice post! that’s a very busy day 🙂
Wow! What a day! I like it that you have a planner. I admire people who have the discipline to do planning and actually doing things according to plan.
Nice day! the suman, the pandesal and the mango looks tempting. Sumptuous breakfast!
nice post for your 24-hour routine. you seem enjoy fruits. i have not tasted durian except durian candy.
