Not long after we started our run in the Singapore Botanic Gardens, Loving Husband pointed this interesting curio to me. Loathe to stop so soon after we started, I’d actually run on. But my curiosity got the better of me and we ran back to take a closer look.
Loving Husband was just as fascinated as he tried to pick up what looked like a nicely coiled piece of wood. But in fact, it was part of the roots of the tree.
The exciting things we discover when we stop, look & marvel.
My evening run took an exploratory turn as we decided to try a route not taken before. As it so often happens when confronted with new sights, I stopped to gawk at various wonders, natural and otherwise.
One of my highlights in June was working on The Tan Times. It all began almost 30 years ago with a newsletter which we put together to keep in touch. In a fit of housekeeping a few months ago in early April, Houseproud Mom discovered all the back issues (the newsletter had long been discontinued).
It is unusual for me to be up at 6pm and sitting at my writing space (I have taken over a portion of my dining table & set up shop there). If I am up at this time of day, it is typically for a run. But I was met with a dramatic thunderstorm upon waking and so I find myself here; the Southwest Monsoons have been enthusiastically watering our little island with thundershowers these past few days.
