Finally! Hot weather! 

Well, here in Trinidad and Tobago, it’s hot … reellll hot, as they would say. 

We had an unexpected and unplanned trip … Tin was asked to come down and try out for the national soccer u-17 team, so here we are. So far, it’s been a lot of hard work and practice in the heat and humidity, but he’s holding up. 

They had a break from the training over the weekend, so of course, that means … beach! 

And of course … a little game of beach soccer! Can’t get away from it ūüėŹ

And where was I? Under the umbrella of course … yarning! ūüėĀ

Oh yes … time to relax … 

Have a good summer, everyone! 

Almost a Mandala

I’m still working on drawing a ‘real’ mandala.

I keep getting side-tracked.  I start out with an idea for a finished product, and somewhere along the way, the design changes.  Either I change my mind, or I forget what I had planned to do.


That’s ok …¬†one day I’ll settle down long enough to come up with a real mandala drawing.




It’s Fall … or Summer Extended

The calendar says it’s the first day of fall, or autumn. ¬†The temperatures say it’s still summer. ¬†No matter. ¬†We can extend summer a few more weeks, I don’t mind.

Is it only me, or are the days going by faster and faster? ¬†Is it me not managing my time and schedule efficiently, or are there less hours in a day? ¬†I really don’t know where the time goes. ¬†We seem to be spinning around and around and the march of time is measured by the changing seasons and schedules, and yet I don’t feel that we’ve even stayed long enough in one season, and the¬†next one is upon us.

I’ve also realized that one of the reasons why I haven’t blogged much is because I’ve become predictable. ¬†Just like the changing seasons, you know what I’m going to write about … the hectic and chaos of schedules, the new school year, the sports season … And yet, that is what life is all about at the moment … there’s not much going on, in between running between home, school, work, soccer games, home, school, work …

Oh, we did manage a two-week beach vacation .. yeah!!


… which didn’t stop the boys¬†pokemon-huntingPokemon-hunting everywhere on the island …¬†you’ve heard of this game, right? ¬†lol

They even went riding all around the island to hit all those Poke-stops and catch those creatures …

I didn’t mind … that kept them busy, and I was left to my reading, crocheting, knitting and just plain being a beach bum .. We need that sometimes, don’t we?


Here’s hoping that the last quarter of the year doesn’t go so fast …








The ‘Ber Months are Here !

These days are really going too fast … It’s September ¬†already!

I’m not done with summer yet! ¬†I want one more day at the beach … I haven’t finished everything on the to-do list for summer … I’m not ready for cold weather again …

So I’m just going to sit down and try to slow it down a bit and doodle …

Hmmm … those lines don’t look even ¬†… it’s going to be another freehand doodle, and maybe in¬†the end it’ll all look even …


It’s an Orange Day¬†

You know how sometimes everything just lines up, but it’s not really coincidence?

Well, today is one of those days. ¬†Appropriate too, I suppose, since we’re in the middle of summer now, and it’s nice, glorious sunshine outside !

What’s orange today?

I saw an orange flower …

I was wearing orange today …

A colleague is also wearing orange …

My wall calendar, composed of photos I took, shows a flaming orange sunflower …

I helped catch an orange Pokemon for hubby … a Magmar, and it’s orange …

And I’m adding the red-orange skies too, just because ūüôā

And how is your day?
