Summer … Bugs Birthday and Bubbles

Tomorrow is the beginning of June, which means to me the beginning of the B words. Yes BBQ, Beach and Blazing sunshine… but for me my birthday falls in June, my son’s birthday is in July and my husband’s birthday is in August. So basically it is one after another. (Oh were the moneys goes!!!)

Then there are the bugs. If you have air-condition and bug screens on the doors and walls you might be save. But the heat usually brings on the bugs. And the bugs usually means either you are covering every exposed part of your body with insect repellant or you are hiding indoors to get away from the annoying bites. With kids you are even more paranoid.

Finally the bubbles. The bubbles from the sparking wine you might think? The bubbles from the scented bubble bath with romantic lit candles??? Nope. I am talking about the numerous amounts of kids’ bubbles solution I have to purchase to keep the kids entertained. Its bubble blowing every afternoon and sometimes in the morning too.

Anyway… it’s all going to be great fun and good times. Hope you started your summer plans and To-do list… do not let it creep up on you unprepared. You might get bit! 

This is my buddy when he was 5 years old.. you can't smell it but he was cover in sunblock and bug repellant. It din't spoil his fun!  :)

  7. Stopping by from the TGIF Blog Hop! I hear you on the bugs and bubbles! We've already gotten a few bug bites this year. And my kids love bubbles too! I buy the large bubble container and then refill the small ones when they're empty, especially since my youngest tends to spill a lot. Can't wait to read more of your blog! Sarah @

My Version of Fall.

I have been seeing on other blogs beautiful pictures of the ever changing and eye stimulating Fall season. Honestly living in Trinidad limits your experiences of the changing seasons and seeing how spring turns to summer to fall and then winter. All I have is endless summer greenery. All I have is the constant warm weather and lush green rain forests.

So I have been living vicariously through other blog admiring the Fall pictures and sometimes questioning if it is really true. Then I had a beautiful sunny day yesterday and got to spend the day just lying on a beach and soaking in the sun. So I decided to give you all my version of Fall. And see what we get during the Fall Season.


 I visited a beach house in Blanchisseuse Beach and it was attached to 3 different bays. It was fun just splashing in the waves, and fun exploring each bay in the warming sun.

This was a bird's eye view of the bay that had clear green water and little watery caves to hide under. My son really liked…

Hate is a strong word.

When you live on a small island like I do in Trinidad, you really do not want to be too outspoken about terrible things happening to someone you know, because it is almost as if you are talking about it happening in your own backyard. But the fact is, terrible things do happen and unfortunately it sometimes happen to people you know or people who you cannot ignore.

In the last month there was a unforgettable incident of a little girl being attacked and physically taken advantage of ... and this rocked out entire community. Mothers, daughters, sisters, aunts, granddaughters and friends were really disturbed about the attack... because you do feel as if it has happened in your back yard! For a few weeks no one felt safe in their own homes and everyone was whispering about the ever changing rumors of the whereabouts of a man, who manage to physically hurt 1 and mentally hurt 100s.

In my heart I do feel sorry for the young girl and pray that through God, family and friends she can be a su…
