Dis&Dat Friday

Yesterday wasn't such a good day, there are lots of things going on in my life, and at times I just feel like I'm barely making it to the surface to get some air.

From when I came back from vacation in late July I've been having some issues with my lower back, at times it hurts pretty bad and it makes me feel old. I am in for a CT scan of my lower back on Monday, we'll see what happens.

Besides my back issues, working with only women is getting on my nerves, sometimes I feel like they are very double faced and I really don't feel like having to deal with that. My manager is going away for about 2 weeks and I will be in charge during that time, I am confident that God is going to give me the wisdom to accept how they are and deal with them in the best possible way but always putting the business first and the personal after.

But... I will not play games, I am a pretty straight forward person and when I don't like something or somebody I tent to address it as soon as possible so it doesn't build up... I think I am in for some bubble bursting soon!

In other news, I am happy to announce that in the year 2010 I have a new lucky number and it's 33. First is because I turned 33 back in Feb. and now I have reached 33 followers on my blog, yey! Thanks to all of you 33 official ones, and those that follow "incognito" as well, you guys rule!

Tomorrow Sat. I will be working and the same for the next two Sat. after that. On Sunday we are going to my brother's Housewarming Party BBQ, so that should be fun.

Well, until we meet again, Ciao!

Summer Camp

I guess it's pretty common for most people that have kids to take them to camp during summer.

Here on the island there are all sorts of summer camps; some go for days in a row, others are just 7 to 6 (while the parents are at work) and there are also others that are just a few hours or just a 1 day thing.

Yesterday while browsing some news on the internet I stumbled upon a very different Summer Camp that really made me smile. And just like many parents love their kids, some of us that don't have any human kids do have some wonderful "furrkids", and that is the kind of camp I am talking about, a Doggy Day Camp!

As their website explains: Totally Dog® offers the perfect outlet for active, social dogs.We were the first dog day camp to offer a true resort experience for Miami’s canines and we remain the only one of our kind! With over five acres of supervised entertainment, dogs are able to run, swim in our 35’x70’ bone shaped pool, romp in our Pine Rockland and play with their camper buddies completely off leash, completely FREE!

Pictures "bark" louder than words..

How fun, isn't it? I would love to have a place like that and be surrounded by doggies all day!!!

Have a wonderful day : )

Window shopping Wednesday

If you are a woman reading this, I am sure you have been window shopping before. If you are a man, I am sure you've been with a woman that was doing window shopping or at least wanted to go window shopping.

Well, living in an island that is about 22 miles long x 8 miles wide, you can image there is not much of a retail world around here.We have mostly souvenir shops, jewelry shops, cigar shops and the occasional clothing stores, but after living here for a while they all seem like the have the same stuff all the time.

So, what does somebody that likes window shopping can do about it? Well, nothing else but "cyber" window shopping on the internet, so today this is what I found on the window at Etsy (one of my favorite online -all thing hand made- place)... Just a few items I like.

I am loving this Owl Pillows

love these Zoo Animals on wheels (that is my inner child speaking!)

I am really considering getting this wall decal for our room

I think this bag would a perfect Christmas present for my sister in law

she loves green, this is where I found it
Lots more to see so I will keep on sharing my window shopping Wednesdays.

Today is already Sept. 1st and so far so good with the Atlantic Hurricanes heading our way. My thoughts and prayers are with those that as I write this are being affected by bad weather or have a storm close by, stay safe and God Bless you all!

Have a wonderful day! : )

3 days off

I am back after 3 days off, yesterday was my 3rd day and I didn't do much but baked my husband a "freedom cake".

Today is my husband's last day at work after working for the government for more than 13yrs. A huge step for him, but I am very confident that he's going to do so much better, now that he is "free" (hence the "freedom cake")... God is in charge and because of that I have no fear.

Here are some pictures of the "Freedom Cake" process. I used an old family recipe and it was very good, unfortunately I think I left on the oven a little too long so it was kind of dry. I am sure I will do better next time, still it's super tasty!

ready for the oven

ready for eating

Also on Saturday we had our "staff appreciation day" and it was awesome, the massage was good but the facial was probably the best I've had in a long time.

Now it's Monday for me, so to make the best out of it, hope you out there reading this will do the same.
Have a wonderful week!
