Hello everyone! It rained overnight here in our area until this afternoon but it was just a drizzle. A little water came into the terrace. It's a good thing that my room has been fixed so some stuff on the terrace are in my room. When ceiling and door was not fixed, I was very worried every night because there were many things that could get wet in case we get flooded when it rains heavily and continuously. We were flooded in October last year when typhoon Paeng hit our place.

If I'm not mistaken, we're on signal number 3 here. The eye of the typhoon is in Catanduanes.
Many were devastated by the typhoon. The plants and trees fell down as well as the nets.
The weather is really bad now, it's different due to climate change. Many places are flooded unlike before. I saw a video on Facebook of severe flooding in other countries. It's frightening isn't it? Should really plant more trees.
So that's it, we repaired the interior of the house because it's materials of our house have been there for a long time so there are termites. The two bedrooms and the living room were first renovated in July last year, also replaced with a long span roof. I said, my room is the next to be renovated because the budget is insufficient. And my room was fixed just last week. The ceilings have been replaced because termites are infesting the wood. The replaced ceiling is not the usual one but hardiflex (it is said to be mixed with cement) to prevent it from rotting. Then drill the metal furring and metal angle bar with blind rivets. It's modern now, it's not good if it's still wood. That's just some of what I asked to my son's godfather who made this ceiling because I don't know much about construction materials hehe. My father also knows how to do welding, he actually did the attic in the house in Cavite.

What do you think of the new paint color, is it nice? That's a mixture of peach and green, it's an avocado color. There is still some paint left, but the wrong one was bought, it should be cream.
After that, we plan to renovate the garage once we have some savings from our plant sales. We also plan to put in a second floor, of course we will save money too hehe. Our plants in the garden is a big help for us. I wasn't actually blessed with a green thumb (mentioned here by a Hiver) I can't remember, lol. I just help in putting coconut peat on the plastic sometimes.
That's all for today. Happy weekend beautiful people. Thank you for stopping by.
