Summer Blog Challenge #9 & #10

Cooking Disasters ... Help!! Oh for shame!!!

Hey it's not easy sharing the negative or disappointing side of yourself. Not everyone likes to post the things they are really bad at, but since this challenge is forcing me to admit something I am incapable of doing, then I would have to say my worst cooking disaster was when I tried to make Paelaue. It is a local rice dish that you throw a lot of things into(meat, peas, seasoning, herbs), but when I was done it was colorless and tasteless. Lets just say I threw it away and only tried it again when my house helper stood by my side and told me what to do step by step. 

This picture gives you an idea of what it looks like... quite a tasty mouthful...yum.

Famous Painting to Hang in my home... all please...

Seriously if I had to chose it would be Monet Water Lilies painting. not only because I got to see it in real life, I also tried to do my own version of it when I studied art in Secondary School. It was an image I have done a few times and I just love how the Impressionistic Art changed how people viewed the world.

My Version of Fall.

I have been seeing on other blogs beautiful pictures of the ever changing and eye stimulating Fall season.

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…
