PURPLE TREE: Bed and Breakfast…


Purple Tree: Bed and Breakfast…

“The purest and most thoughtful minds are those which love colour the most.”        ~John Ruskin~

The positive effect of the Full Moon is still with me. Tons of good news I have received in the days that have passed. And in one way or another, I’d like to believe that on top of committing mistakes unintentionally, I have also made a lot of things through the years that are right.

Feeling grateful, I also thought of givin’ myself a break. To unwind and relax and enjoy “me” time over the weekend.

Well, not literally “Me” time since I was with my ever loyal foodie buddy to accompany me spending my “Me” time. Besides, she is that one of those few friends who will give me all the freedom to literally be myself. And she is one of those reasons why I am thankful. Apart from my son, my job, my mom, my close circle and God. Nothing is inside my heart but gratefulness.

So we thought of a “staycation”. A 2 days and 1 night vacation just to change our environment and be away from our daily routine.

Being fascinated with the color purple. I came across a Bed and breakfast just an hour away from home. As their tag line says:

“Your home away from home.”

The Purple Tree…(–,)

It is truly a happy place (plus the fact that my favorite color is all over the place), it is within a city, but ironically, it gave us a kind of peace and quiet. The only sound I’ve heard while I was there is the rippling waters from the falls situated at the edge of their 5 feet swimming pool and the water fall from a few fountains.

5 feet deep..

The courtyard…

It was nice to know that I still can do a few lapses and Jen’s  swimming skill is improving. She’s on her way to mastering on how to float and do freestyles as well.

I was so excited to plunge..

Apparently, all guests were already in their rooms and the pool was all on our own.
14
I instantly transformed into a mermaid..
13
I’ve always loved the water..
12
I almost do not want to stop swimming…
15
However, we all know that swimming is exhausting..

Another sound that I appreciated is the jingle of a favorite network which I have been watching when I was living a life in a suitcase some years ago. This network was my company all the while I was alone in a hotel miles away from home.

I guess Jen enjoyed it just as much..

Apart from being purple, they are “green” as well.. Those toiletries are so cute… =)
17
Our room was with a pocket book too..=)

What made it more befitting is the fact that they featured a mini gallery of a famous Filipina artist – Dulcie Dee.

6
We know for a fact that I’ve always admired the work of fellow artists..
8
It amazes me all the time!

And Jen appreciates it too..=)

This experience resulted into us planning that we thought it is best to do this more often, sometimes with our family as well. Definitely a stress-buster.

Till next time Purple tree! =)

They were days well spent. Nothing to worry about, relaxed mind, sweet thoughts of the future, planning ahead, positivism and laughter out of recalling some encounters in the past.

Yes, I’d like to agree to be doing this more often. =)

-An only daughter. A mother of an 18 year old son. Passionate with so many things. A lover of life itself. First of which is to write. Then, sing (I specifically love the stage), read, cook, travel & take beautiful pictures (photography) and scrap booking, all of which are my own way of coping with life's challenges. Friends usually associate me with the color violet. I love this color so much! Though, I love pink, red, teal, orange, yellow, blue as well! Coffee is my water and my happy food is cheesecake topped w/ blueberries, yogurt, sansrival and cream puff. I mastered fettuccine carbonara because that is one of my favorite food as well, along w/ broccoli, prawns and mushrooms. Secretly, I love "Stitch" - that grinning indigo pup. =) Seriously, I dream to become a philanthropist (starting off by providing shelter to street children in our country) and a famous author someday. I'm just waiting for God's time for my first book to be published.- It took me years to decide to blog, more so to write and have it out in the open. As I used to write even when I was a teenager, and I just keep them on file. It was my outlet. Approaching the year they say where life begins, or If I may say, the sweeter life. It was a year full of emotions. As I lost my father a year before and I guess in one way or another, the unfathomable sadness prompted me to pour them out in my writings and share them to the world, hoping it might lighten the heaviness of my heart. I live now with my son and mother, as a mother and as a daughter (as a friend and a sister), this has made me be ready to finally do what I am meant to do. Even If there's a lot that I wanted to do. This came first, like a first love that occupied a special place in my heart. It's a looong process, tiring, frustrating, exciting. The best part? is the happiness it brings. Even if things around seems all so wrong. It's like having my own place under the sun. My own safe and happy rainbowed world. At times, there's guilt as well, for I strongly believe, writing (like singing) is a talent God has gifted us. We ought to use it and maximize it, in our littlest way, share it to mankind, for His glory. I just had a few distractions over the years and to realize that it is never too late to be who we ought to be, I have this very strong feeling, now is the time. All my life, I have decided on things that made me happy, this is one of those. I may never be a winner of those best blogs that have been awarded to talented writers/ bloggers and I don't mind, there are strikes of being envious, but according to my father, there are two kinds of being envy. There's envy that is so negative, it'll hamper you from doing good and there's an envy that makes you happy for them, or seeing yourself in their shoes, I think, the kind of envy in me, is the latter. Like celebrities who missed an Oscar, while the film was watched by the whole world, she/he did not mind, it's like knowing what counts best, and it's the capacity to share your talents to anyone who wants to receive it, without asking anything in return. Expressing what's in my heart and mind on every occasion (which happens to be daily) and being happy about it is like a prize already. Happy reading!(--,)
