Happy Saturday!

Day 3 of the 30 days photo challenge is "A song that makes you happy".

Well, there's a few songs that could fall into that category, but today I am going to go with the following song...

"I like to move it, move it"

This song makes me happy, makes me wanna jump, dance and I can't help but smile at the sight of all those silly animals in the video...

The video quality is not the best... but good enough audio to really enjoy the song!

I hope this song makes you happy too... or at least got you to move it, move it!!!
Have a great Saturday :D

Day 2

I know it's Friday and I should actually be posting another wonderful song for my challenge. Unfortunately today's song challenge calls for- Your least favorite song!

Well, first I have to say that the term "least favorite" is definitely an oxymoron and the way I can interpret it, is that I should actually post a song that I like but not very much, right?

Or should I just post a song that I don't like at all, so that would make it my least favorite?

How confusing ?!?!?!????!????!!!!????? So, I guess I am going to go with a song that I don't like, period! Here's it is... More than Words by Extreme.

Oh Lord, this is such a whinny, awful song. I guess it's supposed to be a love song, but the only feelings it brings to me, is wanting to have a very sharp razor to cut my veins open (LOL, kidding!)...


Now, I cannot say much about the Band Extreme, because I don't think they put out any other "hits" other than this one, plus I don't even want to imagine their other songs if this is their best "hit"!!!!

For those that do like this song, I don't really apologize but I would highly suggest to go pay a visit to an Otolaryngologist to help you out with that ear problem, ha!

And for those that watched the video and actually listen to the song... Oh well, at least you have the weekend coming up to get over the shock... Have a great weekend!!!

Here i go again...

Today is back to day 1 on a blog challenge, but this time it's all about music... And like my dear Bob Marley once said (and sang)

"One good thing about music, when it hits you... you feel no pain"

Now, the very first day of this challenge calls for- Your favorite song.

Well, that's a difficult one for me, as I have explained many things before, I am not a person of absolutes... meaning I don't really have one favorite of anything (well, perhaps I have a favorite person,  my wonderful husband!).

So, I don't think I have a absolute favorite color, food, clothes and other things... I like variety and things in my life are in constant change.

In my life I go through different phases and some times I can find something very appealing and others I am in the mood for something different.

And that's why today's song challenge is kind of difficult, but if I was to choose a favorite song, I guess here are my top 3.

1. Change by Mind Melon. 

The very first time I ever heard this song I was going to high school in Attica, NY. During English class everybody was supposed to bring a song, play it and then analyze the metaphors and similes. Somebody brought this song... well, from the first time I loved the lyrics and music and it's been one my favorite songs since then. 

Unfortunately Blind Melon's main vocals and leader (Shannon Hoon- the "golden" guy in the video) died of a overdose back in 1995. RIP Shannon, you still live among us with your music.

2. My next is no other that Mr. Robert Nesta Marley who is BY FAR my favorite singer/songwriter (well, I guess I do have a favorite singer).

Redemption Songs by Bob Marley and the Wailers.

This song is very special and with a very deep message, a must hear!

3. And the spot for #3 is another song I love, because of the awesome guitar, the rhythm and even the video is very cool.

"Money for Nothing" by Dire Straits.

So, yeah I guess those 3 would be my choices... It's kind of unfortunate that 2 of the 3 singers are already gone, but at least they left a good legacy with their music.

RIP Bob & Shannon, may you both be jamming together in Heaven!

Have a great day!!!

challenged much?

Well, looks like our duty with Mir is over, we have paid the bill and he is now in the Vet's hands.

I am very confident that there's somebody out there that can give him a good home and I pray and thank God for that.

In another note, for those reading my blog for a while, remember my famous 100 Day photo Challenge?

Well, I certainly do remember it, mainly because it was hard work but it was also so much fun.

And because of the second reason (the fun part), I've decided to take on yet another challenge.

This time my new challenge is going to be the 30 Day Song Challenge.

Once again I will try to make it without missing a day (even posting on weekends) to fulfill the whole challenge (God willing!).

Day 06 – A song that reminds of you of somewhere
Day 07 – A song that reminds you of a certain event
Day 08 – A song that you know all the words to
Day 09 – A song that you can dance to

in need of a forever home

After a few days at the Vet, it looks like Mir is finally out of the woods, although yesterday afternoon he was still having trouble eating, so we decided to give him another night at the clinic just to make sure he is really back in full force.

"Mir" the day after the accident... doing much better now!

Perhaps he is somebody's cat and he misses his family and home? Or maybe just like the Vet said, he bleed a lot through his nose and cannot smell food quite yet.

So, in a good note he is doing much better. In another not such good news, he cannot be an outdoor cat anymore, mostly because one of his eyes is not quite working properly so the doctor considers he needs to be an indoor cat from now on.

Now, the problem about becoming an indoor cat is that you really need a place to live.

In our case, even if we would like to keep him with all of our heart, we already have 2 dogs that DO NOT like cats at all and one of them is sort of a "killing machine" when it comes to chickens, cats, iguanas and pretty much anything smaller than him. Now, imagine the odds of this kitty with a "bad" eye trying to survive around this killing machine, NO WAY!

So, remember a few days ago when I was desperately asking people for prayers in order to ask God to place His healing hand over him? Well that worked, so thanks!

Now we have decided for the Vet to keep him and they've said that they promise to find him a home and NOT put him down (and after all their time and effort to save him I am sure they will keep their promise).

But it's so hard, because we really would like to keep him but cannot put him at risk with our dogs, it's just not fair.

Anyway, this reminds of the lovely affirmation that goes: "The Will of God will never take you, where the Grace of God will not protect you".

And this is why I think there's got to be a reason why I literally crashed into this cat and a reason why not only he didn't die but survived and it's got another chance. I know that God works in mysterious ways and he will help the Vet office, find this lovely kitty a forever home.

So, please keep him in your prayers and if you'll like to adopt him let me know as well!!!

Have a great Tuesday!

brief busy social life

"Good Friends are like stars... You don't always see them, 
but you know they are always there".


While I was in Costa Rica a few weeks ago, I was so blessed to catch up with friends that I haven't seen in a long time.

Had time to socialize and made me feel like I had a "busy" social life again... Something I kind of lack in my life in Cayman.

So, spending time with them, was great. Here are some pictures of my time with them!

breakfast with my cousin and a mutual best friend Roger

Some of my "besties" from High School
Good friends from life, Adriana & Pable

My dear very good friend Oswaldo (green & white shirt) and his partner Javier... Love u guys!!!
with another cousin an a good friend from high school
Isn't nice to see people after a long time and to feel as if time doesn't go by or changes your friendship? I love it...
In other news, looks like out "crashed" kitty is doing much better, he (confirmed it's a male) is still at the Vet's but not eating much.

According to the doctor, he might not be eating, because he was bleeding a lot through his nose, so perhaps he cannot quite smell right, just yet.

We are hoping he will be ready to come home soon, as I don't know how much a 4 night "clinic" stay is going to end up costing us... But oh well, as long as he gets better, that's all I really care for.

Have a great weekend and more news about Mirr (that is his new name) the cat, soon come!!!
