Our house - Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young

Hi again! It's been a while... many things happened and for some reason, I had no access to the internet. It is now October and here in the Philippines, the Spirit of Christmas is already around the corner. And when we talk about Christmas, the center of the celebration is the family. This is the reason why I remember this song.

I was not familiar with this one, neither the artists who sang it until I heard it as a soundtrack in one of my favorite movies, "My Girl". Each time I hear it played, I remember our own house. The part that says "you placed the flowers in the vase..." because we only had one flower vase back then. I remember it was placed on top of our TV set and since we have a small garden, I gather flowers from there, different kinds on diferent days. My sister and I even place a very common flower/grass called "baby's breath". It was so cute and a beautiful ornament for roses.

"Our house is a very, very funny house... with 2 cats in the yard..." We had 2 cats, persian descent. They were my pets from a good friend of mine back in college. I loved them! People in our place say you'll get allergies and asthma when you sleep with cats but not with me. I slept with my cats. I placed them on my chest while I lie down. They say cats hate water but I shower them then afterwards place them under the sun. Now, they're gone but I still had funny memories with them.

I hope you'll find this song interesting too. Til next entry!

I'll light the fire
You put the flowers in the vase
That you bought today

Staring at the fire
For hours and hours
While I listen to you
Play your love songs
All night long for me
Only for me

Come to me now
And rest your head for just five minutes
Everything is good
Such a cosy room
The windows are illuminated
By the sunshine through them
Fiery gems for you
Only for you

Our house is a very, very fine house
With two cats in the yard
Life used to be so hard
Now everything is easy
'Cause of you
And our la,la,la, la,la etc

And our

I'll light the fire
And you place the flowers in the jar
That you bought today
