The river behind our house started to overflow. The authorities warned us and the others living by the riverbank to move somewhere else—preferably to a higher area, like my aunt’s house a few blocks from ours. We have been staying here for half a day already. The sun has not greeted us for the past few days. We were never more eager to see it again.
Today had been awful. The downpour was so heavy that I was soaking wet by the time I arrived at home from school. Not only that, but the river behind our house was continuously rising just like it always does whenever a rainstorm occurs in our town. My mother was cooking adobo when I entered the house. When she saw me, she pulled me into a hug before proceeding to what she was doing. We waited for father to arrive from work—he was not to be at home before seven sharp—so I decided to help mother with the cooking instead.
I know. And I’m sorry.
I haven’t written or posted anything for so long that I started to wonder maybe my blog has been rotting for a month and a half already, you know with bugs and rats and such. If you’d go back to my most recent post (second to this one) it’s dated June 10 and yikes! That’s…un-wonderful.
Can I first say how weirdly satisfying this GIF is? I mean I could watch it for an entire day!
And, nope. This isn’t going to be another book review post. I didn’t know how much I missed writing a blog entry that isn’t a book review until now… Eh, why did that sound so cheesy?
Anyway, today I’ll be talking about two things in general: Camp NaNo and my book! So without further ado, let’s get this rolling!
