Ode to my back porch

A place where I like to be
when I feel happy
when I feel at ease

Plants and birds
sharing the breeze
come together
all in peace

Birds visiting
from the trees
find seeds
and water to please

Plants with color
like no other
bright up the place
and brings a smile to your face

Having breakfast or lunch
in company 
or alone
perhaps a dinner lighted with a torch
there's no place like my back porch

Happy Weekend!

Rainbow it is

If I had a brain like this...
Would I see the world like this?

And my hair would look like this?

 And my fruit too?

 Surely when I eat cake, mine would look like this...

Since I can remember I've always loved rainbows.

When I was 9 yrs old I visited Mexico City and stayed over a month at my aunts place, who at the time was married to a Venezuelan guy who was the ambassador of Venezuela in Mexico. And that's when I first got my most favorite doll of all "Rainbow Brite".

Oh did I loved that doll, after I found it at some department store in Mexico City, I took her everywhere with me, slept with her and even when we went to the pyramids, she was by my side.

Then I grew up but my love for rainbows never stopped.

It was many years after my love and infatuation for Rainbow Brite was at its peak, I realized that the Gay pride is represented by the rainbow flag. Well I might not share their sexual preferences, but I have no fear wearing anything with a rainbow or even saying I love rainbow color stuff, just cause people might think that's the part I share with them... I have many dear friends and met many others I don't share many things with, the sexual preference part I really only care for in my husband and that's cause he likes me, LOL!

Anyway back to the rainbow color brain.... so, if I do in fact have that brain, would I look like this?

Or maybe like this?

not sure which one it is, but I sure like to have a pet like this...

Resolutions Update

We are almost done with the first month of the year and so far I think I am pretty good about my new year resolutions like I mentioned on this post.

I am being grateful for everything that I have, even if sometimes situations that I encounter don't seem to be something to be grateful for, I know that down the road even the hard obstacles in life are going to make the reward at the end worthwhile.

On the matter of reading a book a month I have to say that I am right on track. On the first weekend in January I went by the Cayman Islands Humane Society book loft and picked up 4 used books for $10ci = $12.50 usd, can't go wrong with that... and all for a good cause.

So far I've read one whole book "Me vs. Me" which is a very light and entertaining novel, nothing too deep but in a way makes you think about different paths in life, decisions and consequences of our acts. If you are going to read this book don't expect a literary masterpiece, but it's fun.

Now I'm on my second book by an author that won the Nobel Prize of Literature back in 2004, the name of the book is "The Double" and because I'm not quite finished yet I will have to get back to you about the review of it, I do have to say though, so far so good!

In the matter of volunteering for an organization I am applying to be a Big Sister for a kid with the program of "Big Brothers, Big Sisters" on the island. I've already spoken with the director and they are getting back to me with the application forms, on my end I have to put some information together and then once I apply they'll need to match my personality and interests with a little girl for me to be her mentor. This makes me very excited and I'm looking forward to it...

Happy Tuesday!

My 1st 2010 dive!

The weekend is gone, but oh so fast, specially when you have to work Saturday and then today is a Holiday on the islands and guess what? I'm working too... Well, at least yesterday's morning dive makes up for the fact that most of the the island had a 3 day weekend and I had a 1 day one...

The dive was fun, took some alright shots unfortunately part of the dive was very frustrating because my camera case buttons were kind of jammed, so when I was trying to take pictures (unless I had perfect light conditions) it was impossible to adjust the settings, meaning I lost some good chances to get an award winning picture, LOL!

And of course this whole camera deal with the buttons, started the minute my husband spotted my favorite fish in the world, an "Spotted Drum" but not just any kind of S.D. but an adult, which by the way is the first time I get to see one (all the other ones I've seen are juvenile and they look very different).

Here's a picture of a juvenile Spotted Drum I've taken a couple of years ago:

And here's the best image I managed to take of the adult one (on yesterday's dive):

See how different they look? Well, at least I managed to get this nice shot.

I have a few other pictures that I will post later this week, have a great one!
