To A New Adventure

I am baking a new recipe of Banana Chocolate Bread today. I'm hoping it will come out good. I think this is the first time in a couple of months I'm baking again. I miss it.

I've been away again. I just couldn't get the motivation to write for some reason. I think part of it is that Kepi and I are looking at another health issue - his brain tumors. I've always been the patient and Kepi my caregiver. Now, this role will be reversed. I never knew that it is harder and tougher to be the caregiver most specially when you see your spouse suffering.

Kepi's second MRI imaging was done a week ago. This week, we're going to see his doctor again and schedule his surgery. Please keep him in your prayers.

My vegetable garden is doing quite well even with the abnormally late arrival of summer weather. I managed to plant some Tomatoes, Bitter Melons, Bokchoy, Chives and Dill. I still have a few Peppers to transplant, so I'm hoping to get to it this coming weekend. Quite a delight to also see my potted Moringas surviving. The leaves would be delicious for Chicken Tinola soon.

Flowers from my garden.
Next week I will be starting a new job. I was sort of surprised because I applied to this company last year. It felt timely that they called after our Hawaii trip in May giving me time to meet their regulatory team and also have a short meeting with the CEO. I accepted their offer last month, so here I am embarking on a new adventure.

The living room is now filled with the warm heavenly aroma of chocolate. I am excited to taste this bread and I'm hoping Kepi will like it too.

Fresh from the oven - Banana Chocolate Bread.
It's tea time and you're all invited.


  1. Oh good luck on the new job and I'm sending positive vibes for Kepi.

  2. Oh yum please cut me a slice of that banana chocolate cake, it looks delish!

    Best of luck in your new job and sending prayers for Kepi's surgery.

    1. Saving you a slice. Yes, it is quite good and not too sweet.

      Thank you.

  3. Good luck on your new adventure, especially your new job, kepi's brain tumor, and your vegetables to be harvested

  4. Holding on to all the good vibes and good luck in your adventure!

  5. That banana chocolate bread looks delicious. I hope that Kepi will start to get better soon.

  6. Hi Ms. Kayni! Dumaan lang para kumaway :-)

    Congratulations and good luck on your new adventure. Sending prayers for your husband.

    I didn't know Moringas can be potted because ours grows so big in the backyard hehe
