New Page!!!
Yup! I am opening a new page in this blog. It will be about our agricultural efforts- aquaponics, regular planting in soil, etc. And, of course, you are welcome to browse around and ask questions or leave comments if you please. 8-)

A Whole Lot'a Shaking

It has been a shaky two days. Two quakes were registered in the last two days here in Puerto Rico. The first one was felt at 12:01am on Monday morning, and it registered a 6.4. The next one was felt today at 8:08 am at the exact same place, and registered 4.3. Of course, there were over 200 aftershocks between them. Click here to go to the site with the information.

Other than that, things have been quiet around this house. I took my new pig to the vet on Friday to get neutered. He was not a happy guy when he came back home. Poor baby!! He was ok the next morning. 8-)
Ok, I'll let you go for now. Take care, and be ready for "the big one"!

Autumn is Here!!!!!

And with it MY birthday!! Yes! So happy b'day to meeeee... hehe
Hope you are enjoying the change of colors in the leaves. Here in Puerto Rico we don't see that change. Here we have summer & spring all year long. It's been over 20 years since I 've seen snow. I want to see some snow...soon...8-(
I included some pictures of some of my sheep on the galery page. Scroll down to the bottom. Cute, huh? (not me, the sheep!)

Cleaning House Time... 8-/

Today is cleaning house time. My hubby's niece's daughter is having her 6th birthday at our house. Her idea. We didn't know anything until her dad went to pick up her report card at school (she's in Kindergarten, mind you) and the teacher told him that all the kids in her class were so excited about her birthday party..."What birthday party?" asked her dad. "Her party on January! She's invited all the kids to her uncle's house (my husband), and she's even said they are going to have inflatables!" (!!!!!) "Really?" asked her dad. So now we were bound by her word (!!!!!!) to have a birthday party and invite her friends. But her mom was smart and invited the relatives, and a few kids from school... No more than 8... That's plenty... 8-) Relatives are better: mostly adults, non-drinkers, non-smokers, very happy bunch of guys. 
So, the little miss's official birthday is today, but we have been reparing the house for two weeks now: trimming trees, pressure washing the backyard and front yard, windows and screens cleaning, painting the outside of the house, polishing the outside floor tiles, etc.... I don't want to see what her ideas will be for her sweet 15th! 
The party is this Sunday, Three Kings' Day's Eve. We are expecting about 100 people; and rain. 8-( Not a good idea... 
Oh, well. We'll see what happens then. I'll keep you all posted.
Bye 8-)

Happy new year!!!

After my last post, I was unable to see my blog on any browser. After trying to contact Blogger, the instructions they gave me were not very helpful. Good thing I have a genius son who is also a computer nerd, and he helped me with this problem. It was just a matter of broken links. All is fixed now, so, welcome back! 
I have to admit, I wasn't sure whether I should go back to writing this blog. I have not much to say, being a somewhat private person. However, I think this is a good way of expressing my thoughts and feelings in a safe way, so, here it is. 
My only resolution for this new year, 2014, is to try to blog more often, say at least once a week. If I can keep up with this "resolution", I'll be quite happy. 
I am posting some pictures of some crafts I have done, hope you like them. They are under the "Tutorials" page. 
So, for now, I sign off, wishing you many blessings and happy times now and always. 8-)

I cannot believe it was over a year ago I last wrote. I divorced my internet company last year. Now we're back together on a trial basis, since they now have optic fiber and all... We'll see how they behave now.
I will be writing more often now. I promise! 8-)

Here's a new baby bib I made from a pattern found on this website. Cute, huh? I figure that If I make another one and join them together, this can be a baby tank top!

Hello!!! I know I haven't posted in such a long time. So many things happening! Well...only one: I've got myself into a foot cast. Soooo surfing the net from my Kindle Fire is easier than sitting in front of the laptop in the office room.
Anyway, I have some new pics of stuff I've done lately. Actually, only two things, but that's more than nothing, don't you think? Here they are:

Easy Fingerless Gloves

I added the snowflakes... 8-)
