All things Pink

Well we are finally in October and it is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

So today, my post is about all things pink, and with this I would like to honor; first of all my Mom as a breast cancer survivor along with many other women (even some men) that have being through this horrible disease, fight it and lived to tell the story.

But also I would like to honor those that have not being as bless as the survivors as well as those that are going through it as I write this...Hope all women reading this DO NOT take their health for granted and the best way to move forward against Breast Cancer is awareness and early detection. I am going to be wearing a pink ribbon pin every day of the month, to remember and honor this important cause!

Happy Friday!!!

A little bird told me...

actually, I haven't heard anything from a bird but just their wonderful songs.

But lately it looks like my life is filled with this beautiful animals and I'm not sure if this has any meaning or not.

Like I said in one of my previous post about Woody (the woodpecker) I had a pretty close (the closer so far) encounter with him and I was able to capture the moment with my camera.

This morning I was having breakfast and coffee with my husband in the back terrace and all of a sudden he said "did you see that red bird?". So we got up and we were able to spot it, a beautiful cardinal-looking bird (but a cardinal in the Caribbean, naaaah!). I manage to go get my camera and took some pictures of it, unfortunately he was quite far away and even with my zoom lens I was not able to capture a very clear picture of it. Then when I got to work I manage to find the species on the internet and it is a Summer Tanager, here it is:

Finally when I came to work today as soon as I was walking to my desk I realized that a little bird had come through the doors and was flying around like a maniac trying the find his way out, (this is not the first time that this has happened). As before I was able to grab him and set him free, unfortunately this one little one probable hit his head in one of the fans cause he was bleeding. I hope he survives!

Happy Thursday!

Now, it's my turn to pass it along and to tag some other blogger that deserve such a nice compliment. So here I go...

1. First of all I have to say Ooh La La, because my first tag goes out Heidi. She has a very nice blog with lots of visual posts about design and decoration, but she also manages to include some very nice, deep messages that make me think and uplifts my spirit.

2. My second tag has got to be for my favorite male blogger at First Time, not only cause he is the man I love but also because he is the only that inspired me to start a blog so without him I would not exist here!

Still life with the Woodpecker

Today's post is not about Tom Robbin's book, but a series of pictures I've taken in the past few days of Woody, our resident woodpecker that lives in our back yard and it's interacting with used to us.

On a previous post "3rd time is the charm" I managed to take a picture of him for the first time when he comes and to eat bugs out of our roof gutters. Well this time I took some good shots of him on the Mahogany tree...

Now, yesterday I had a very "close encounter" with him in our back deck. I was coming out of the shower and I heard him signing but closer that ever before, so I grabbed my camera and walk into the back deck trying to find him, I kept hearing him but couldn't see him, until I looked down and I spot his little head just poking up and staring at me... I really think he was curious and maybe even likes his picture taken, LOL!

On another note... I am keeping the new image for my blog as I received good reviews and nice comments. I also just read that I have an award from Maggie waiting for me at her blog, but I haven't had time to read about yet, so I will post about that soon, so for now, Thank You Maggie!!!

Blog Makeover

What do you guys think about my new blog image? Like it or not? Should I just go back to my previous one with the starfish? Please give me your opinions, o.k???

Here are some picture of yesterday beach time, it was short but sweet, because after about an hour it started raining like you won't believe it, so I took the opportunity to jump on the water (which got pretty warm cause of the rain) and took some pictures while I let the rain wash all my worries away.

the rain is coming

Schizofrenic Saturday...

The weekend is flying by so fast that it's Sunday already.

Yesterday was a pretty bizarre day, in the morning got a text from my boss only saying;

"I just got one question: what did I ever do to u?"...

So to me, this is a joke! I mean, if you have a problem with somebody and you want to confront this person, you have to do it either in person or over the phone, cause what's the point of trying to confront somebody via text message, uh? So I obviously ignored the text and went on with my day... But this made me think that there was already something going on at work.

After some shopping we ended up having lunch at a new Tex Mex Restaurant (and the only one on the island, can u believe it, on an island with more than 30k people!). It was good, and I had a very large Margarita... which kind of got me through the rest of the day...

The reason to say the Margarita got me through the rest of the day is because when we were waiting for our meal, the assistant manager at work "J" called me to tell me that in fact it was the end of our manager at work, that she got fired that very morning, which probably explains the reason I got that text...

So, later on in the evening I got another text, this one explains the fact that not only she is bipolar, she has this paranoiac personality, and I'm sure what she meant is that the assistant manager which she refers to as "my friend" is the one that calls me that. I'm sure the reason why she is saying this is because she saw us talking on Friday (about random stuff) but I'm sure in her head it was all a conspiracy meeting against her... so her text this time said:

"I hope you are happy to know what your friend calls u, a short, fat, b*#%h. I am".

Nice, ah? Very classy of her, and probably the result of a very depressed and drunk afternoon. Oh boy I tell you, I've been working with this woman for almost 3 years now and I always knew her last days at work were not going to be pretty, and even though I tried to stay away from this whole situation, I knew she always had this time about me and it's call envy.

So, obviously ignored that other text and when I see her, if I ever get to see her again, and I probably will, cause she refused to sign the letter that was giving to her yesterday, and left saying she was going to talk to her lawyer (yeah like she can even afford one!).

Anyway, like I say before, I really don't wish her any harm and I'm sure that she will be a lot happier somewhere else if she hates us all that much (specially me!).

On another better note, it's Sunday so now I'm off to the beach... will post some pics tomorrow!
