It is definitely not a rumor that I love weekends.

I love the quiet and restful time, staying in to just spend time crocheting, enjoying our back deck and the wonderful "ool", going shopping or taking the dogs for a ride while Sheba drools all over the car window and door- well, maybe not that part!

Or perhaps going diving, which hasn't been the case for a long time, mostly because of my bad quality lower back and it's not so fabulous bulged disk.... Meet with friends and just hang out!

But I specially love weekends, when there's something to look forward to, today I am already forward to go see the very first play since I moved to the Cayman Islands.

Tonight it's the opening night of the play Rumors, I have a friend that is acting as well a producing it, so we are going to have a good time and specially show our support to Adam.

At first my husband was a bit hesitant about going tonight, but I managed to convinced him, specially as this is an activity that we don't get to do very often on the island.

On a side note, I once auditioned for a play and even got a part, unfortunately because of immigration/work permits issues at the time I had to suddenly leave the island for a few weeks and had to quit to play as I was going to miss a lot of rehearsal time :(

Besides the play tonight, I am specially looking forward to today as it's PAY DAY!!!! Yeap, with the buying of my new car, it felt as if I had too much month left after my last cheque, LOL!

Lately a lot of my diver friends have been spotting lots of Sea Horses around the island, we might try to go to a very shallow dive site tomorrow to see if we can find one, specially because my husband with all the years of diving (more than 20), never once seen a Sea Horse, imagine that!

I on the other hand have, but never here in Grand Cayman, 3 times in Cayman Brac. Heres' a photo (unfortunately a bit blurry) of one that I saw a few years back.

Sea Horses are definitely one my favorite sea creatures, can't wait to see another one, hopefully tomorrow we will see one and make sure the stories people are telling are not only rumors, LOL!

Hope everybody has a wonderful weekend, any special plans on your side of the rainbow? Well enjoy!

Throwback Thursday

Starting today and every Thursday from now I am going to dedication Thursday's to "Throwback Thursdays".

What is that all about you might ask? Well, I will post a photo from my past and will give you 5 facts about it, like; time it was taken, when, with whom... etc.

Sounds like fun, right?

Well, here's the first photo of my first official Throwback Thursdays.

Facts about this photo:

1. Yes, this is me "modeling" my cute little dress and wearing a pair of my Mom's high heels (which is something I definitely grew out of, since I rarely wear high heels now).

2. The photo was taken probably by my Dad and around 1982.

3. We lived in this house until I was 25 years old then I left to live in Mexico and my parents sold this house and moved up to the mountains.

4. The lady sitting behind me it's my Mom, she has very dark hair in this photo and short, which wasn't a style I remember her using very often.

5. The chair that you see my Mom sitting on as well as the one on the corner were both hand made by my great grandfather around 1910 (although the upholstery was updated by that time), my parents still have 2 of those chairs an a little love seat!

So, isn't this fun?

Well, I was thinking that since I will be doing this every Thursday, perhaps as of next week I will create a little "Link Party" so if you would like to join the Throwback on your own blog you can link to mine (with a button I will post on Wednesdays) and share your own past in photos.

Is anybody interested? Hope so... Have a great (Throwback) Thursday!!!

here kitty, kitty...

Back in July of 2011 was the first time I ever posted a picture of lil' Goldie and his siblings.

On this past post I talked about feeding "Little One" and "BTK", our first resident kitties for about 3 months...

updated (but blurry) photo of Little One and BTK
... And then, finding out on the corner of our yard that "BTK" had a litter of 3 lovely kittens... A black one (Shadow), a Tabby (Lee) and a Yellow one we named Goldie.

the two brothers, Shadow & Goldie (Lee missing)
Well, time passed and we finally were officially introduced to the kitties and we started feeding them daily.

Then Albina (aka Al) arrived and was made part of the family, she is a very cute girl.

We feed all 6 for a while and then finally the last member of the pack arrived, Long Tail (aka LT)...

Now he has become a huge part of the gang and in fact I think he is sorta of the male leader (although we hope the Mamma BTK is still the leader of the pack!).

So, with patience and dedication our relationship with them grew and now our kitty family has 7 members!

All kitties are pretty awesome but at heart they are still very feral as well as very unpredictable.

But out of all seven, there's a special boy that has made a very unique relationship with me, Goldie, he is my little boy and he knows it.

In fact, when he goes away to "explore" around the bushes, if I go outside and I start calling and yelling his name, no matter where he is, he will come back and announce to me he is back with a very loud "Meeeow"!

On Sunday my husband said he fed them in the morning and the only cat missing was Goldie, by the afternoon he was still not around, so I went outside and start calling him, he was back in less than 5 minutes.

It's kinda of crazy to think that a feral cat like he is, actually would knows his name and knows when I am calling him, but he does come when called!!!

Funny, eh?

Here's the last photo I've taken on Goldie, yesterday when I came home from work, as you can see he is super chilled and although he let me take the shots and even rub his little paw, he was so chilled he didn't really care to move very much!

Have a great Day!

Dream of lasting peace

Eleven in English, Once in Spanish, Undici in Italian, Elf in German, Onze in French, Elva in Swedish, Ahada ‘ashar in Arabic... No matter in which language you say it, 11 is the amount of years that marks today the horrible terrorist attacks of 9/11, in 2001.

A dark day in the history of our entire world and each an every one of the cultures that share this planet eart.

Because no matter what your nationality is, the sad events that took place that day (and take place every day where there are terrorist attacks) affect us all as humans and goes beyond frontiers.

And today in the words of the wise Bob Marley, I would like to share a feeling that I have towards all things War, Terrorism and Violence...

Until the philosophy which hold one race

Superior and another inferior

Is finally and permanently discredited and abandoned
Everywhere is war, me say war

That until there are no longer first class
And second class citizens of any nation
Until the colour of a man's skin
Is of no more significance than the colour of his eyes
Me say war

That until the day

The dream of lasting peace, world citizenship

Rule of international morality
Will remain in but a fleeting illusion
To be pursued, but never attained
There will be War...

Perhaps even after Eleven year, the sorrow and sadness that comes with the loss of innocent lives is still pretty much alive, but so it's their memory in the hearts of all those that loved them.

Still after Eleven years, I don't think it's about pointing fingers and find people to named guilty, but to find a way to insure that this won't happen again. 

And to me, the only way to do that, is by changing and always keeping an respectful attitude towards others, accepting others customs, cultures and believes but specially by never trying to impose our personal believes into others.

It all comes down to respect and love for us and one another, perhaps it's impossible and it might sound unreasonable to some, but it's the only way.

So, let's not forget but forgive our mistake as humans and move forward to ensure that our world has a promising and peaceful future.

In sort of a random fact about the day of the attacks; the Costa Rican Consulate was in one of the towers that came down that day, there were 3 employees on worked on that office and every single one survived because they were all running late into work that day... Well, I guess sometimes running late could be a blessing in disguise!

God Bless!

Monday already?

The weeks sure is short and then the week starts and work is so slow during Sept. & Oct. that each weekday feels as it it has a 14 hour work shift, time is all wrong!

It's Monday already an I don't have much to post about, but I did get a new car last week (well, new for me) and here is a photos of it.

Besides that, this weekend my husband made yet another toy for our dog Sheba and she of course loved it...

So I came up with the brilliant idea to buy some nice colorful rope and have him make a few more so we can donate to all those doggies at the Humane Society that are in much need of toys as well as love and adoption (unfortunately we can't help with the adoption part!).

Well, hope everybody had a nice weekend and that the coming week is fabulous too!!!
