Growing and Adapting



I noticed this little plant growing underneath one of my flower trees. Plucked one leaf and realized it smelt orangey and that it could be some kind of pokok limau. I decided to pluck them out and replant them into a pot so that they had more room to grow. To which, hubby remarked that they grew at that spot for a reason and went into a philosophical discussion about how we would feel if we were plucked out of our surrounding and thrust into somewhere new and foreign. Yes, wonderful conversationalist my hubby is. He can pluck out topics to talk about from just about anything. So there he got me thinking, it's true. Nature does have a way of finding its own way.. Plants, animals, even us human beings, grow and adapt and a lot of times even thrive in the face of adversity. So maybe it was wrong for me to pluck the little guy out. Maybe it was right. Time will tell. But knowing how everything has its own way of growing and adapting, I'm optimistic about its chances either way..

Day 6 – A photo of an animal you’d love to keep as a pet.

TUUUUTT Tergendala Sebentar... is what I should have posted up to depict the no-updates status of this blog and my blogging challenge, for some time now.

What can I say, seperti biasa la.. life is full of busy-ness, interruptions and complications, that blogging and many more things that I would love to pour myself into..takes a backseat.  I know you know what it's like.  There is so much I would love to share with you, so many ideas popping into my mind and I think, 'Oooohh..I should blog that..' and yet, hu ha hu ha and then the moment is gone.

Been gone for THAT long that even Blogger have changed/updated their layout and look and I was for a while lost, trying to figure out how to get to my dashboard.

Anyway, I am doing fine, thank you very much for asking.  Been keeping myself busy with work and taking care of the little ones. And fitting in everything else in between.

As for an animal that I'd love to keep as a pet.. a cat! But only in theory. Heee.. I like the idea of having a cat, cuddly and cute and fluffy and sweet.  'Someone' you can talk to or tell how your day went at the end of the day.. But this is only in theory.  If I wrote a book or a script and my character were to have a pet, then she/he'd have a cat.  In practice, I don't think I can tahan.. fur getting all over the house, the cat menggusuk-gusuk near my feet, and the peepee and poopoo... Boohoo for that, am not really really an animal person.  I can't even watch Animal Planet without squirming.. I have been known to watch The Dog Whisperer with Cesar Milan though... Haaa..blabbering on now!

Well, there you have it.. hoping that this signals the end of the long hiatus, that the blogging challenge gets finished and that all will be merry again in Linachu land.  I leave you with this smiling creature below.. xx
