Enjoy your Saturday outdoors...


It's cloudy over here, so we'll spend most of the long, three day weekend indoors.
Hope you enjoy yours,

Dream House File

This is in my file for when we build our dream house.
Soon, I hope:

You can tell that I love French chateaus and that the last version 
of the movie Pride & Prejudice has really made an impact on me.

What's your style?

Tell her

To the one that taught me to be a respectful and useful human being on this earth...
A la que me enseñó a ser una persona respetuosa y útil en este mundo...

the one who sacrificed so I wouldn´t go without...
la que sacrificó tanto para que a mí no me faltara...

the one who taught me to cook, to laugh, to live, and to love...
la que me enseñó a cocinar, a reir, a vivir, y a amar...

the one who is no longer by my side...
la que ya no está a mi lado...

but is always with me in my heart...
pero siempre está en mi corazón...

to my dear mother...
a mi querida mamá...

Happy Mother´s Day.
Feliz día de la Madre.

I love you and I miss you so.
Te quiero mucho y te extraño tanto!

If your mother is still on this earth, visit her, call her...
tell her how much you love her, while you can.
Si tu madre todavía está en este mundo, visítala, llámala por teléfono...
déjale saber que la quieres, ahora que puedes.

Still loving blue

Blue is the overwhelming "favorite color." 
Blue is seen as trustworthy, dependable and committed. 
The color of sky and the ocean, blue is perceived as a constant in our lives.

As the collective color of the spirit,
it invokes rest and can cause the body 
to produce chemicals that are calming;
however not all blues are serene and sedate.

Electric or brilliant blues become dynamic and dramatic,
an engaging color that expresses exhilaration.

Blue is the least "gender specific" color,
having equal appeal to both men and women.

How the color blue affects us physically and mentally:
* Calming and sedate
* Cooling
* Aids intuition

You know I had to end the post with a pair of blue (Fendi) shoes...

I think I dream in blue.
I never get tired of it.

What's your favorite color? 
I'm interested to know.

Enjoy your week.
