“One benefit of Summer was that each day we had more light to read by.” ~Jeanette Walls
It bothers me when someone meddles in my life thinking they know everything. They seem to be their sole purpose in their lives. I’m sure each family knows someone who loves to do things like this. It seems they’re not happy with their lives and they need to stick their noses in somebody business. My mother uses to say that such persons are “those who don’t eat and they don’t let anyone else eat”. I didn’t understand the quote until later on. However, I will not allow them to dictate my life.
We all have different variety of bottles around the house. In my case I’ve been collecting perfume bottles. I’ve around 20 decorating my vanity. In addition, I’ve bottles of wine I keep for a special occasion next to my husband’s vodka. Last year I received a bottle of “Fifty Shades of Grey” and it’s waiting for the perfect moment. When the weekend arrives, I love having a glass of wine, read a book, or just relaxed on my porch. My favorite wine is the Moscato and the Cabernet, however if I see a beautiful design on the bottle I will buy it. My husband always tells me it’s a lot of dust on those bottles. And that I spend too much time cleaning them, however I can’t help it makes the vanity looks pretty. Of course, he doesn’t have any comments for the wine. I will keep collecting bottles of perfume and wine until I get tired.
Growing up in a Puerto Rican home doing our chores, especially on a Saturday was fun. Yes, I know I said fun. Of course, it depends if our friends were outside waiting for us. My mother would put the stereo on a high volume so we can sing during our chores. In our neighborhood, you can hear all different types of music.
We would wake up no later than 8am watch the morning cartoons and then my mother would turn on the stereo. It was cleaning time. Listening to the music would make the cleaning go faster and more enjoyable.
I raise my children in the same way and they didn’t complain at all. By the way they still do their cleaning with the sound of their favorite music. Maybe not as loud as mine. When I’m in my car as soon as I hear a favorite song, the volume goes up. I loved singing in my car and for that reason my grandkids love being with me. This morning I was cleaning my bathroom and my grandson says where was the music. I turn on my CD player and immediately he took the broom as a microphone. The girls follow him, too.
Enjoy your day at the sound of music!
I love this quote. This is the way I feel today is my birthday. Oh my God, I turn 57 and I never thought I would survive. When I was 48 and diagnosed with breast cancer I felt I would die. I was afraid for my kids accomplish and my husband. My mother passed away at the young age of 48. Today looking in the mirror, I feel grateful for my life. I’m cancer free and enjoying my babies. My mother didn’t have the chance to meet and adore her 13 grandkids and 14 great grandkids.
My plans for today a trip to the Zoo and have a fantastic time with my four grandkids. I’m sure we will have fun. My husband would be taking me to dinner and we picked Thai food.
I am grateful for having a wonderful life and I hope to keep it this way.

Who doesn’t love this song? “Imagine all the people living life in peace”. This is the song of a dreamer and a believer that we all can change if we wanted it. We can save this world of madness and we can make a difference for the future of our children. In a perfect and an imaginary world, the song fits their purpose.
John Lennon wrote this song with an idea of having a peaceful world. I’ve read the opinions of some people and how they interpret the song. I’ll respect their opinion; however, the message is perfect no matter your race, gender, political views, or religion. I consider a beauty, peaceful, and touching.
The saddest thing is that we can only Imagine. “You may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one”.
Just trying to figure it all out
