Fun Monday #1 - Quotes

Welcome to my new blog, I've only been blogging for a week, and am excited to join Fun Monday. My daughter Candid Karina and Mscellania said this was a good way to get to know all of you.

This week's Fun Monday is being hosted at Pensieve. The assignment is to: please share words that inspire and motivate you--brief or bloviatory, silly or serious, from great world leaders to last night's Comedy Central...from a Hallmark greeting card to your favorite book. Choose one, choose many; let the quotes stand on their own or tell where you first read or heard them and how they affected you. There's a lot of leeway with how this topic can be handled.

I believe that if I have an optimist attitude through life I will be happier, so will the ones around me. This is why I picked OPTIMISM as my inspired word.

There may be days when I get up in the morning and things aren’t the way I had hoped they would be. That’s when I have to tell myself that things will get better. There are times when people disappoint me and let me down, but those are the times that I have to remind myself to trust my own judgments and opinions, to keep my life focused on believing in myself and all the ones that I’m surrounded of. There will be challenges to face and changes to make in my life and it is up to me to accept them. Constantly keep focus in the right direction. It may not be easy at times, but in those times of struggle I will find myself stronger than ever.


Our rewards in life always be in direct ratio to our service. ~ Earl Nightingale

Play while you play, work while you work. One thing each time, this is the way all that you do, whith your might; things done by halves are not done right. ~ Author Unknown

The journey of a thowsand miles begins with one step. ~ Loa Tsze

Imagination is more important than knowledge. ~ Albert Einstein

My religion is very simple. My religion is kindness. ~ Dalai Lama

If there is any kindness I can show, or any good things I can do to any of my fellow being, let me do it now, and not later or nobody shall pass this way again. ~William Penn

Smile when you want to, cry when you need to. Laugh whenever possible! ~ Author Unknown

Make a carrier of humanity, and you will make a greater person of yourself. ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.

I am me. In all the world, there is no one else exactly like me. Everything that comes out of me is authentically mine. Because I chose it I own everything about me. My body, my filings, my mouth, my voice, all my action, my fantasies, my dreams, my hopes, my fears. I own all my triumphs and successes, all my failures and mistakes.
However I look and sound, whatever I say and do, and whatever I think and fill at any given moment in time is authentically me. If later some parts of how I looked, sounded, thought and felt turn out to be different from what I expected, I’ll discard what I don’t want, keep the rest, and invent something new for that which I discarded. I am me and I’m ok!…

Now I live you with a joke, this is Fun Monday after all.

Ode To A Mammogram

For year’s years they told me,
"Be careful of your breasts.
Don't ever squeeze or bruise them,
And give them monthly tests."
So I heeded all their warnings
And protected them by law...
Guarded them very carefully,
And always wore a bra.
After 30 years of careful care,
The Doctor found a lump,
He ordered up a Mammogram
To look inside that clump.
"Stand up very close," she said,
as she got my tit in line,
"And tell me when it hurts," she said,
Ah yes!There! Thats just fine."
She stepped upon a pedal...
I could not believe my eyes!
A plastic plate was pressing down...
My Boob was in a vice!!
My skin was stretched'n stretched
From way up by my chin,
And my poor tit was being squashed
To Swedish pancake thin!!
Excruciating pain I felt,
Within its vice-like grip,
A prisoner in this vicious thing,
My poor defenseless tit!
"Take a deep breath," she said to me.
Who does she think she's kidding?
My chest is smashed in her machine,
I can't breathe and woozy I am getting.
"There, that was good," I heard her say
As the room was slowly swaying,
"Now lets get the other one,"
"Lord, have mercy," I was praying.
It squeezed me from the up and down,
It squeezed me from both sides,
I'll bet she's never had this done
to her tender little hide!
If I had no problem when I came in,
I surely have one now...
If there had been a cyst in there,
It would have popped-Ker-Pow!!
This machine was made by man,
Of this I have no doubt...
I'd like to get his balls in there,
For months he'd go "WITHOUT"!!

Not a Sunset.

You look at this pictures and you may say: What a beautiful Sunset!…

Oh, well guess what? It’s not, it’s actually a Sunrise.

I took these pictures on my way to work yesterday. It was exactly 6:45 am.

Isn’t that amazing? I tough it was.

I’m sorry I’m not a big writer, but with time you will get to know me and hopefully you’ll understand my history.

Now I live you with a poem that I read on this web site called: Home with God

Every sunrise is a present,
A gift from God above,
Gift-wrapped with scarlet ribbons,
Tied with bows of love.
Each day's a new beginning,
A time to start anew,
While all the stars are sleeping,
The rose is fresh with dew.
Each day's a new creation,
Too lovely to ignore,
We may find a blessing,
Just outside our door.
We cannot keep the past,
Like fireflies in a jar;
Nor journey to the future,
By wishing on a star.
Every sunrise is a blessing,
A gift for just today,
Rejoice my friend,
Embrace it before it fades away!

Author Unknown

This is the day which the Lord hath made;
We will rejoice and be glad in it.

Psalm 118:24 KJV

Today I will share with you part of my family. I Hope you enjoy.


Hi, my name is Luanda (on the left) and i'm 7 years old (looking pretty good for my age, don't you think?) and this is my new friend Diamond.

When she first arrived at home, 6 months ago I didn't like the idea of sharing my family love with anyone else, but as the time went by i realized that nothing changed, that i still had the same attention and a friend to play with.
She likes to lick my face but i don't mind because i love attention

Sometimes i get a little tired because she's full of energy and never stops, she disturbs my naps.

She is young and crazy she runs after me like a full, but when i don't want to play i just go to a high place were she can't get me and finaly she decides to live me alone.

Do you believe that she even likes snow? (See next pitcture)

i don't it's cold and wet and i don't like water as it is, never mind freezing cold water.

It was nice chatting with you.

The Story of Easter

Easter is a time of springtime festivals. In Christian countries Easter is celebrated as the religious holiday commemorating the resurrection of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. But the celebrations of Easter have many customs and legends that are pagan in origin and have nothing to do with Christianity.

Traditions associated with the festival survive in the Easter rabbit, a symbol of fertility, and in colored Easter eggs, originally painted with bright colors to represent the sunlight of spring, and used in Easter-egg rolling contests or given as gifts.

I hope everyone had a nice Easter.
Come back soon.

Welcome to my garden

Spring has just begun, so my blog is in the growing process along with all the new buds in nature. Allow me to introduce myself.

My name is Rose, you may have previously heard about me from Candid Karina. I am her Candid Mama, and after hearing her talk nonstop about blogging, and her bloggy friends, and the blogosphere and a bunch of other blog stuff, I decided I wanted to give it a try as well.

I'm looking forward to exploring this world, and getting to know all the wonderful people she's always telling me about.

My goal with this blog is simply to experience something new, and possibly meet some friendly folks in the process. This is going to be a challenge for me (because I'm not a technical person), but I'm always up for new challenges.

So, as we go along, I hope you'll come back to take a stroll through my garden and help me to make it grow.
