!Viva México!

I’m American – born & raised.
And – I proudly honor the flag that I was born under.
But – today I celebrate my Mexican heritage.

Getting to Work

I drove into the wrong parking lot at work.
I left that lot as soon as I realized that it was the wrong one.
As I headed to the correct lot -
it got quite foggy & a wintry rain/snow mixture began to fall.
I stopped in the middle of the road & got out of my car.
And – I hopped onto a flying scooter for the rest of the way.
Meanwhile – my car followed behind slowly.
I got to the lot & parked in my usual number one spot
closest to the building side entrance.
I wondered if my car got lost.
But – I headed into the building anyway.
Because I had to work.

Yep – That just about sums up the weird dream that I had last night.

Today’s post was inspired by Hadel’s Gradma’ Umra.
May she continue to rest in peace.

A Welcome Back Surprise…

What a surprise to my eyes
& a smile to my heart when I read Kim’s post -

Acknowledging My Blogging Friends.
After not being much on the WP lately -
this was a warm welcome back.
I so feel the love.

Beauty - Flowers - Thoughts


And – if you didn’t already know – Kim will be participating in a Walk with the Lupus Research Institute on October 18th.
She is $10 away from reaching her goal of $150 & $60 away from participating in the ALS ice-bucket challenge.
So – if you have some spare change – please donate & help a cause or two or three while you are at it. ;)

Wishing you all the best today & always
RoSy :D

Time To Catch My Breath

I’ve been really busy lately
& at the same time a bit out of sorts.
I have not forgotten you though.
Hope that you are all doing well & enjoying life.

2014 Wooden Bench

Today was a perfect weather day – 
If I could take this day & box it up
to release in the middle of winter – I would.

RoSy Gone Nuts

It’s been another week of insanity for me.
Lots of running around 
Taking care of before school stuff with the kids 
Juggling appointments
& last minute TO DOs between the girls’, lacrosse & hockey practices
*schedule pick ups
*2 open houses
*dental appointments
*doctor appointments
*fittings for new glasses
*gathering school supplies that weren’t on the original lists

Here is what I look like as of this afternoon.
Hopefully – the extra day off this weekend will help me freshen up a bit.
Because ready or not – it’s back to school for the kids on Tuesday.
And- that’s when a whole new level of insanity begins.
Withered Purple Flowers

Have a wonderful weekend peeps! :)
And – for those of you that celebrate Labor Day on Monday-
enjoy that extra day off if you don’t have a public service job, or work in retail.

Abandoned – i C Photo Challenge: Cars & Trucks

Today’s post is for Steve’s prompt – Cars & Trucks

24Oct13 Abandoned Car

If I lost my sight – this is probably something that I would miss & probably not notice.
I like to catch things that seem to be out of place.
This is definitely something that was left & forgotten.
It lives in a local nature center amongst the elements of four seasons.

Our First Dance

Hi Peeps!

Pardon my absence this past weekend.
It was a full one & then some.

After a crazy ending to a busy work week of flying solo
without my co-worker because she was on vacation -
I took Fenway to the vet.
He’s now on medicated wipes & an antibiotic
for an issues that he’s got in a fold right above his nose.
I will be taking him back for a follow-up vet check in about a week.

Hockey in the am
A wedding reception in the pm
Oh – and I completed my ALS ice-bucket challenge.

Hockey clinic
Hockey conditioning
& more hockey conditioning
No – not me – my two girls

Hope you all had a great weekend.
And – wishes to you all for a wonderful new week! :)

Our First Dance

Here’s a photo that I took at the wedding this past weekend.

A Frog On A Log

I would like to eventually fill my garden beds with frogs & toads between the flowers & tress.
I started with a few frogs / toads & a bell last year.
This year – I added two to the croaking bunch.


Here’s one of them…
