Continuing on with Tradition...

Well for those who read about my accident last week would know I missed a Saturday of decorating trees at my family's homes. So this Saturday was a 2 for one visit. we had a lot to get through with, lots of liming, lots of food and lists of decorating. 
So here are a few pictures of the end result. 

My sister's tree went up first and we manage to do her gallons and a snowman family.

And finally we did my mom's tree... which she decided to decorate in RED!!

It really is great to spend time with the family and experience  the fun together. It makes the workload less and with all the laughter... things just gets done quicker. 


  1. Love all the snowmen! We are in the middle of a huge painting project in our house so I haven't yet been able to get out that first Christmas decoration. I think it's going to be last-minute decorating for us this year.

  2. How great, I love single color themed trees. My family never wants let me have one though, they like lots of color.

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.
