Friday Letters

Dear Friday: I am so absolutely over the moon with the fact that you have finally arrived, oh boy, how I missed you, but in all honesty I kinda like your sister Saturday and Brother Sunday better... but you are not so bad yourself, specially after a whole long week like this past one, thanks for showing up again!

Dear Feb 15th: Today is the day the world celebrates International Childhood Cancer Day but just because you come right after Valentine's Day doesn't mean you are less important as this horrible disease is very real and very bad, we need to always be vigilant, specially when it comes to kids.

Dear Meteors: You guys are freaking scary and please do not come our way anymore, can't imagine what those people in Siberia, Russia went through with that scare, my thought are with them all.

Dear Asteroid: I know you are also in the vicinity of Earth, so please pretty please, stay away and do not mess with us, thank you!

Dear Crochet Artist in me: I need to wake you up, I am going home in a few weeks and would like to make some gift to take, so this weekend I am hoping to make lots of progress in that front.

Dear Husband: Thank you for taking us to dinner last night, I had a great time and love spending time with you to be totally myself... I can't promise to love you forever, but I can promise to love you for as long as I live, Happy V Day to you again! XO

Dear Weekend: You are so close that I can almost touch you, can't wait to have you around, get to sleep in tomorrow morning, hang out by the "ool", crochet a bit and just spend time with my lovely dogs and hubby, thanks for showing up again!!!

Dear Readers: Hope life is good wherever you are, wishing you good weather and good times with loved ones or even by yourself.

Happy Weekend!!!

All we need is... L♥VE

Today is the official day to celebrate all things L♥VE... although L♥VE should officially be part of our every day life!

Now, when it comes to L♥VE I am convinced that by itself, it cannot exist.

L♥VE feeds from trust, care, patience, kindness, commitment, friendship and joy among other things.

Also there are many forms of it other than just romantic L♥VE and they are all as important and vital to our lives. There L♥VE from a Mother/Father, there's sibling L♥VE, friendly L♥VE, there's L♥VE for other beings/nature and even L♥VE for oneself and for what we do, plus the life we are so fortunate to enjoy.

In my case and probably yours as well, I'm a very blessed person when it comes to having all kinds of L♥VE in life. I've always been surrounded by L♥VE from God, my family, friends, my pets and specially my life partner and amazing husband Mark... and last but definitely not least, my daily readers and fellow bloggers!

But  L♥VE is not only about how much you say "I L♥VE you" but how much you prove that it's true and act upon it... So today let's make the best out of the day by showing others how much we cherish their presence in our lives and how important they are for us!

May your day(s) be filled with lots of acts of love and that this L♥VE will multiply with each and every breath you take!

Happy Valentines Day

8 and counting...

“The more that you read, the more things you will know. 
The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.” 

In the words of the wise Dr. Seuss I am proud to announce and celebrate the fact that I'm done with book #8 for the year. 

My latest read? Well, since you asked, "The Great Gatsby". Yes, it is an American literature classic but I've never read it before, now I am glad I did... But in my opinion, it was just alright, nothing really extraordinary, in fact it was kind of slow in the beginning and then it got o.k. but never too exciting.

Now I don't have anything planned for the next book and I could really use some suggestions as I am trying to "think outside the box" by trying to read different kind of books so if you know of anything out there worth the read and that could be added to my 30 books a year list, please do help, thanks!

I do have to admit that I have a book about 1/2 way in, but it's just not doing if for me, the book is "I know this Much is True" by Wally Lamb, who also wrote "She's come undone" and that I absolutely loved... But "I know..." it's just not doing it for me, so I am keeping that one open for in between reads.

In other news, today is hump day and a Holiday here, as I mentioned yesterday, it's Ash Wednesday, but since we don't even have a volcano close by to produce the Ash, I have to work.... so I am making the best of it, specially since I went Salsa dancing last night with some girlfriends so today I much rather be in bed!!!

Wishing everybody a nice day!!!

The Skinny on Tuesday!

Monday has come and gone and now we are on to Tuesday, so let's bring it on with another link up to 10 on Tuesday with Linny and Co.

It's Fat Tuesday for some and then Ash Wednesday for others, in my case I plan to stay the same weight both days, LOL!

Tomorrow as I mentioned just before it's Ash Wednesday Holiday on the island. You know what cracks me up about the holidays here, the fact that most people are not even religious or officially celebrate Ash Wednesday but they still want the day off.

Also the islands are a British Colony and they celebrate the Queen's Birthday in June, when it's not even her official birth date, crazy, uh? I think so..

Last weekend was great, went to a 40th birthday party with a sunset boat included! Had to fly solo because hubby was still recovering from a cold, but I am glad that he is outta the woods now!

with my good friend Emma

got to sit next to Jo at dinner
part of the dinner crew
my friend is a BIG Southampton fan

"Happy Birthday Dear Christian"
40 is the new 30!
Over the weekend I made some healthy-ist "Morning Glory" muffins, replaced most of the sugar with "Stevia in the raw", unfortunately since I put too little regular sugar, the muffins did not raise very much.
Still, I think they came out pretty good and my hubby gave them 2 "yums" up!!!

No, I did not watch the Grammys and not would I watch the Oscars, or even the Video Music Awards, which by the way I don't understand. How could there be a video awards ceremony if videos don't even exist anymore, do they? Perhaps YouTube Videos, right? LOL

Yes, LOVE is in the air as we are on the final countdown to Valentines... But, not that I am counting as I don't really care very much for Valentines, still I am married and if any gift come my way, I will be totally thankful and lovey-dovey!!!!

If you like any [or all] of the following; birds, blue sky, extreme closeup of birds, water and wasps... then you are in for a treat with you visit my husband blog and check out the video he took with his new lil' camera... Just click here and be amazed!!!

Can you believe my little Godson Julia has grown so much?!?!?!? Here's the latest photo I received this past week, he's starting on a preschool for the first time, but he's not even 2 years old! That seems crazy to me to put them in so young, but oh well, times have changed.

Saw this photo yesterday for the first time, it's an ad for Hermes Brand... Isn't it beautiful and happy?
Love her flow-ey outfit, the pose, the bike, the place... well everything!

Last but not least I want to share with you a video taken by a friend of mine up in Crystal Lake, FL where him and his wife Ellen when to see the Manatees.

Images contained in the following video might make you wanna sell everything, take off and live surrounded by Manatees or... at least make you want to see one in real life.

Wasn't that simply awesome?!?!?!? I want a Manatee so bad now...

Happy FAT or SKINNY Tuesday to you'all!!!
