reverb12 - day3

I wish for health, not that I'm sick - thank God I am not - I wish to continue feeling good and very healthy.

I must make a commitment to exercise and lose some weight, I believe sticking to those two things long will make a big impact on my - future - health, and will be good for my daughter to grow up knowing the importance of of eating well, exercising and staying healthy.

#Reverb12 - day 2

What was your most significant expenditure in 2012?
Since August first - when we moved into our new house - I've been spending all my extra money in our garden. Plants, pots, etc. and it has been worth every peso!

What difference has it made to your life?
For the first time in years I again have a garden to play with/in and it has been great! I love getting my hands dirty, digging, planting, moving things around and above all the sense of peace and connection with mother earth - a really great feeling!
I'm grateful and feel very lucky to be able to grow herbs, some fruits, some veggies and beautiful flowers for my family and I to enjoy! I really cherish my gardening time and look forward to it everyday!

    Reverb12 - #1

    I received an email for lovely Kat inviting me to join in on the above mentioned event - how honor I feel to have been invited!!! And as a matter of fact everybody is, so come join in! Go over and visit Kat to learn all about this great event. 
    Here is my first post - the first of many, I hope :)

    The first prompt for #reverb12 is: How are you starting this last month of 2012?

    Overwhelmed! There, I've said it and I feel better :) For quite sometime I've been stretching myself to do more and more for everybody - for many reasons - everyday and very little for myself! 
    I've caught myself wanting creative time, craving some reading time, wanting to walk nonstop for more than 10 min... I've neglected myself big time!
    The good thing is that I'm aware of it all and willing to do something about it, starting tomorrow! I must! 
    So let me ask myself that question again: how am I starting the last month of 2012? AWARE! and willing to do something about MY needs while trying to balance the needs those in my life... and trying not to lose myself - again - in the balancing act! :)

    The Gallery: Planes, trains and automobiles

    Even though we love to travel, this summer we will be staying home for various reasons, so the only "traveling" we've been/will be doing is by car :)

    Last Sunday I took this photo, and it made me realize how lucky I am to like rainy days - as during the summer we get to enjoy storms almost daily - and find beauty in our day even if all we have is "liquid sunshine"!

    The Little Bliss List - Grateful

    Every Friday, the Little Bliss List provides a chance for us to celebrate the little things that brought us hope and happiness this week. I do believe when we focus on the sweet stuff of life, the sweet stuff multiplies. And by sharing those small gifts in our lives, we help others notice the gifts in theirs. 
    Here is my Grateful list!: 

    • We are about to finish our first week of summer vacation - how relaxing. . .
    • Our Princess attended summer camp this week and it was a success!
    • I was able to help out Mr. Wonderful this week, it was nice to be able to do stuff for him  
    • Our new house is coming along!!! Hopefully by the end of the month we'll be able to move in!!!
    • The great summer rains we've had so far have made everything emerald green, lush and colorful - just the way I like it :)

    The Gallery: Food

    Summer where we live means heat and the best way to beat it is to be near the water, 
    and that's just what we like to do! 
    The food is cooked from scratch with wood found nearby-carne asada and quesadillas, YUM!
    A grilled quesadilla with roasted salsa and avocado - Delish!
    And for dessert - of course - we had to have roasted marshmallows!!! 
    We used sticks from a fallen branch :)
    Waiting - BARELY - long enough for the marshmallow to cool before biting into it :)
    Great times, great memories - thanks to Mr. Wonderful for make it possible!

    Heart 2/31

    Today I'm sharing a heart I made with wire; after shaping the wire into a heart I wrapped it with fabric scraps - from my ever growing pile - glued at the start and end with my trusty hot glue gun :) 
    Since I love sparkle I added some sparkly beads here and there and it is now hanging in my craft room :)

    31 Hearts - Day 1

    An almost childish drawing of a heart, first sketched with pencil on watercolor paper 
    and then retraced with washable markers and filled with doodlings I usually do when talking on the phone :) 
    Sorry about the poor quality of the photo - did not realize it until I uploaded it.
