Salsa Dancer

Mainly because certain things are just too good not to share, because I love dogs and have a soft spot for talking or dancing animals and specially because Christmas is coming up...

Here's an awesome video for your enjoyment.

Happy Saturday!!!

hello tomorrow

If you are reading this today, it's because it's already December 21st so I guess the world's still around and the Mayan perhaps are yet another civilization that we do not understand and try to interpret in the wrong way!

Now, the real question is, When is the world really going to end?

To me the world ends every day that; 

an innocent gets killed, 

a child gets abused, 

animals gets abandoned or abused or killed, 

acres of woods get chop down for the sake of "progress", 

governments use their countries resources in the wrong way, 

animals species get wiped out, 

and even when people use and abuse the name of God in vain ... 

But mainly to me, the world ends when we do not live our life to the fullest because the day we'll die that is really the day the world will end for us.

So my message today is, 

instead of worrying about the end of world, let's focus on all the good and positive things we can do between here and then... 

Happy 21st of December, happy weekend and beyond!!!!

Thro-ho,ho-back Time!

The holidays are just around the corner and being that today is Throwback Thursday, I've decided to share our Christmas Photo from 2009!

And now for the five photo facts:

1. Both the dogs are wearing red ribbons but you can't really notice them!

2. This was the year we got married, in May.

3. Our photo was taken in the back deck, we ended up taking a few as it was really have to make the dogs stay (specially Sheba!).

4. I still have that dress and perhaps I would wear it for this years photo (thinking of doing something in the same lines.

5. The feeling of wishing Merry Christmas was there in 2009 and is here in 2012 again.

Wanna join in the fun and share a pic from your past? Please do link your blog and photo next.

 happy Throwback Thursday!!!

10 on Tuesday (Photo Edition)

Being that it's almost the end of 2012, today I've decided to link up with Linny's Vault and participate on 10 on Tuesday but in a different way...

So, on today's edition I am going to post my 10 most favorite photos of the year (taken by me!).

A great shot of the cruise ship and a waterspout in the background!

Ginger Monday :)

Nothing gets me in the best of holiday spirit like my house smelling of delicious holiday cookies plus baking to the soundtrack of "The Holiday Movie" which is a fabulous mix of music with a bit of holiday cheer!

My Gingerbread Man cookie project came out wonderfully...

I have to say that I didn't suffer the smelly party and although I did try one (without the frosting), I didn't feel that bad because the recipe I used is a low fat!

When I say low fat, meaning it's got much less sugar than regular cookies as the recipe replaces most of the sugar with unsweetened Apple Sauce. Of course this makes the cookie dough a bit stickier but not that bad, you you have to do is use plenty of flour when spreading and cutting the cookies before you put them in the oven.

I think I left mine a bit too long as they came out quite dark and my husband says they are a bit dry, more like ginger snaps... But oh well, still look and taste alright!

Now, the decorating part, was hard, but they ended up looking quite decent.

I made a batch and got about 50 cookies in total, I am giving one to my boss and his family and another one to my husband's new boss and his family.

Here's the final result sitting on my boss's desk!

So, how was your weekend? Anything special going on? Please do share...

Less than 10 days to Christmas, what are your plans?

Happy Monday!!!
