It's so annoying...

There are lots of things and situations in life that are just plain annoying, I know it and you do too... And although I don't really like to complain here are just a few that come to mind today.

It's so annoying when people don't return a greeting even though they heard you perfectly well, I dunno if it's because they are plain rude or perhaps have no manners at all, but c'mon people "hello" it's just a two syllable word and if that is just waaay too much effort then just go for the plain "hi", right?

It's so annoying when people who have never meet or talked to you before, use a joke or a "clever" comment for their first interaction. I find this annoying mainly because you don't know other people's humor so why start an interaction pretending you are funny when in fact you might sound just sarcastic or even just plain stupid... just saying.

It's so annoying when you write a whole comment on a post and then you have to go through the "word verification" crap, yes, I find that very annoying, but unfortunately lately I've been getting TONS of spam messages from anonymous users to I am being forced to use the word verification from now on... I know, annoying right?

Sorry to all my regular readers and specially those who comment, if this is too much of an inconvenience and you prefer to not comment, I totally get that, hopefully I won't loose you guys fo'eva!

In other news, it's Friday for me, yeeeah, and although we are not having typical Caribbean sunny weather, a cloudy day off beats any sunny day at work, right?

Happy Easter everybody!

just random thoughts

Well, well, well... it's Wednesday already!!!

Lately (trying to continue with my healthy living habits) I've been sort of infatuated with a product called "Le Pain des Fleurs" or "The Bread of Flower" (Quinoa version as there are others!). OMG I have to say those crispbreads are simply delicious, specially if you put peanut butter on them.

So, if you see them at your local supermarket, give them a try, promise you won't be disappointed, plus they are Gluten Free (in case that makes a difference for you!) and you can put jelly, peanut butter, cheese, or pretty much about anything on top of them!

The weather is been pretty good lately other than some wind, but yesterday such wind started picking up to the point that the ocean got really rough and by the evening and this morning we are having gusts of about 20 mph, now this a.m. it's very cloudy and yucky out there!

But I don't care what the weather brings this next few days, mainly because...

So, as long as I have my hubby, my dogs, my cats, my crochet, books and my pool, I am all set!

Last night I tried a new recipe for Kale & Potato (with turkey sausage) soup, it was whole meal in itself and it was very tasty.

Although I don't follow football (aka soccer) as much as I used to anymore, I find it unbelievable that FIFA didn't want to cancel and do a rematch for the game between CR and USA after they played while snowing and ended up with 3 feet of snow on the ground. I find it not only unfair but ridiculous, it is not ice hockey we are talking about here, LOL!

To our advantage, our national team won 2 - 0 against Jamaica last night so we are still ahead of the cheating USA team anyway, LOL!

I find it incredible that it's almost April already, 3 months just flew by like nothing, which makes me think the more reason to live life to the fullest and love as much as you can, because whether we live to be one more or 100 years more, that is all that really counts!

Happy Wednesday to all!!!

Count to 10...

I've been officially back for 9 days and I have to say it already feels as if I don't even remember the last time I went on vacation...

Maybe it's because my time away was not the type of vacation where you actually get to rest, it was more like a full on agenda of doing stuff everyday, seeing people everyday and having lots of fun, but no rest for the weak!

So, now I am back until further notice for good and it's Tuesday so once again I am linking back to Linny's Vault & Co. for another edition of Ten on Tuesday!

Do I need to say more? I don't think so...

Whenever I go back to visit my parents I make a point of buying my Mom different packages of seeds and I love it when I go home and some of those seeds are already plants. 

This past trip my Mom had a beautiful Equinacea plant blooming (from one of those seeds)!

And then there's this... LOL! 

Some people could really use a cone of shame when it comes to cellphones, I call them "zombies" because they are sitting at a public place completely and absolutely focus on their phone and disconnected from all environment, it's like they are "living death"!

About 3 weeks I decided to try and grow an avocado tree out of a seed, so after eating the avocado I did the whole poking holes with toothpicks and put it in a jar with water... Well, after much patience and making sure it had water, a root showed up after about 2 1/2 weeks and finally now an actual plant is showing up, I am very excited and can't wait until we are able to put it in the ground... 
(although that not going to happen for a while cause it needs to have a decent size for it to grown on our very rocky ground!).

You know what grinds my gears? When you send a message to somebody via facebook and the person reads (and u know because the program displays when it was read!) but they never reply?!? It's like WTF, where is courtesy of replying at least a couple of words, I never not reply to any messages.

To all those friends of mine that now are BIG runners, they do marathons, triathlons and any other "thons" out there, all I have to say is...

So, I finally ended up wearing the Blue dress for the wedding and here are finally some photos... Photo quality is NOT the best because those were taken with my phone.

And here's a photo with my friends!

We ALL love cats, don't we? Well, even if you don't today is a great day to give the opportunity to the wonderful Cody the chance to be one of the AmazeCats Next Top Cat.

Who is Cody you might ask? He is Caren's lovely kitty and she is a super nice lady, fellow blogger and reader, so if you have time today, and tomorrow, and the next day... Please click here and vote for Cody, thanks! (you are able to vote everybody, so why don't be extra special and do so?!?!?)

I am excited because I've submitted two photos in the photo competition of the Yellow Pages "Color Me Yellow", people are able to vote starting on April 8th to the 22nd, so when the right time comes I will need all the support I can. Here are the photos I've submitted.

Well, being that Friday is Good Friday and a holiday, today is sort of like a Hump Day for me and those that are celebrating Easter, what are your plans? Anything special?

Have a great day :)

Full on Weekend

You know it was a nice weekend when it was full of sun, sand and sea!!!

On Saturday we took the dogs to the beach and although there were some waves in the sea, our dog Sheba was totally in her element and enjoyed jumping and swimming around like a fish!

Ditto on the other hand is very good at chillin' under a tree and loves to go for walk but doesn't like waves at all...

On Saturday night I participated (along with other girlfriends) on the "Light Up the Night" Walk against breast cancer that took place in Seven Mile beach, we all wore glow in the dark t-shirts, plus glowing stick and even glowing balloons, it was a fun time for a good cause!

Sunday was spent at home (most of the day) but we also went snorkeling for a lil' bit, had a good time... But really, who wants to leave home when I have this on my back deck?!?!?

Now it's off to start of another week, a short one again being that it's Easter week, hope everybody is having  a great Monday and here's to a great week!!!
