Reflecting on the month past
After a month filled with visits from overseas friends & family, gleeful rain (and sunny day) runs, lots of baking & good food, we end the month with The Covid. Older Child was down last week. Yesterday, Loving Husband tested positive. All this despite us being so very careful.
Fortunately, Older Child emerged relatively unscathed (apart from a high fever on one day, the rest of the sick period was mundane). So far, Loving Husband has a scratchy throat & cough – hopefully it won’t get too much worse.
Younger Child & I have escaped to my folks’s apartment – they are away in Penang, Malaysia so we have the run of the place without fear of bringing any germs to them.
Here are some of my favourite moments from the month:
From top left (clockwise): 1) remembered to put freshly sliced bananas on the top of our banana bread, 2) Phoebe is a stray with a house, 3) iLight Singapore 2022, 4) tomato soup & garlic bread from my favourite sandwich shop Rebel Gurl, plate by Talented Potter Friend, coaster tatted by nimble-fingered Older Child, 5)milk (homemade cashew-oat) & cookies (made by Older Child, along with the tatted coaster), 6) ran to the Marina Bay Cruise Centre, 7) time with my little brother & little sister, 8) sesame ball & sweet potato filled with lava salted egg from Swee Choon, one of our favourite dim sum places
This next set (including the feature photo) was taken on visit to Yishun Dam; it was stepping back in time to 1970s Singapore.
About The Changing Seasons
The Changing Seasons is a monthly project where bloggers around the world share their thoughts and feelings about the month just gone. We all approach this slightly differently, though generally with an emphasis on the photos we’ve taken during the month.
For many of us, looking back over these photos provides the structure and narrative of our post, so each month is different. Some focus on documenting the changes in a particular project — such as a garden, an art or craft project, or a photographic diary of a familiar landscape.
But in the end, it is your changing season, and you should approach it however works for you.
There are no fixed rules around post length or photo number — just a request that you respect your readers’ time and engagement.
