a Winning day!

Yesterday I had the day off, my boss is going away for a couple of weeks and I have to be in charge so she gave me an extra day. I decided to take Thursday mainly because I wanted to take our dog Sheba to the Vet and so I did.

After the visit to the Vet I took her to the beach and had a fabulous time, she is so well behaved that I can even take her off the leash and she won't wonder around, approaches anybody and behaves super well among other dogs, we had a great time together and she made me very proud!

The day was a bit cloudy but it work out fine because otherwise it would've been too hot.

As soon as we got to the beach a little tiny doggie approach her (later on we found out he was a male named Max). She was very nice to him and even allowed him to drink off of her water bowl.

Here's a photo of lil' Max...

Then we went for a long walk (about a mile and a half) and did some very nice swimming... I specially pushed Sheba because the Vet says she needs to exercise more and go on a diet, she's gain two pounds since her last appointment and now she is 82 lbs!!!

Doesn't she look like she was having so much fun?!?!?!? We really did have a great time :)

Well, now off to some winning matters...

Today is the day of the winner of the I Love Yarn Day 2012 Giveaway....

And the winner is: Colleen Schnell

a Rafflecopter giveaway

Congratulations Colleen, the lil' Owl is flying all the way up to upstate NY to keep her company in the coming winter and beyond.

Again, thanks to everybody that participated, I was overwhelmed by the amount of entries (32 in total) and cannot wait until my next giveaway.

Have a wonderful Weekend and Happy I love Yarn Day 2012!!!!

10 on Tuesday

Takes more than a whole day to get used to a new week, but Tuesday is here so it's another day and another chance to share a 10 for Tuesday, linking with Linny's Vault.

30 Rock is back, but after watching back to back episodes of the previous season, one episode a week doesn't really cut it for me... 

For those that are not part of Instagram or do not follow me (which I am sure it's not the case, cause I am awesome and a total leader to follow, LOL!)... Here are my latest shots!


Breakfast Bowl

Taking a Stroll
Invisible Spiderweb

Liked any of the previous photos? Well, my instacanvas gallery is officially opened, if you would like to see my photos and perhaps buy some, please visit my gallery here.

Officially lovin' that google trick of the "askew"... if you don't know what I mean just open a google search and type askew
Tell if it worked for you (it didn't for my husband!)

I am super excited because tomorrow is Wednesday and I will be having a new giveaway, so stay tuned!

Although I live in the tropics and there's no such thing as "Fall or Autumn", I can't help but love this little cartoon, specially cause Snoopy is my favorite!

But it's not only Snoopy who has a special place in my heart, all dogs do too... can't help but smile when I see this image... although wish it was me lying down instead, LOL!

Love Tuesdays when I go to the gym early in the a.m. and exercise my little butt off... today I literally sweat as if I was given birth to triplets!!!!

I think Family Guy is quite funny some times, but it can also be quite rude and offensive as well... I do have to say that I enjoy Consuela's jokes, and although I am not very fond of Jesus/God's jokes, I found this one very funny!

Hope everybody has a wonderful Tuesday and remember to stop by tomorrow and sign up for my very special giveaway, can't wait :)

two days, too fast!

Happy Monday, I hope you all had a fantastic weekend!!! Mine was very low key, on Saturday I stayed home all day, I catch up and finished one of the three ongoing crochet project I've had on my desk for a while...

This is my latest project,  a lovely bathmat, I didn't use any pattern and pretty much changed and added as I wanted, I think it came our pretty nice, don't you agree?

But the bathmat was not all I did, I managed to start another project, I cannot go into details today but I will reveal more in the next couple of days, so stay tuned!!!

So, remember my Nikon J1 camera I bought a couple of months ago?!?!? Well, I am still in love with it and now even more since I just bought a book that explains how to make the most out of it and I am hoping to buy a new lens for it in the next coming days...

Here are photos I took with it over the weekend.

Please don't mind the background mess... thanks!

Our cats are always great subject matters for photography.

So are flowers, right?

Have a wonderful week!!!!
