Please KEEP US IN YOUR PRAYERS that we stay safe and it goes by fast.

#Campfire after hurricane Irma.

A post shared by @naramilee on

A post shared by @naramilee on

Last week, after hurricane Irma passed some miles from the coast of San Juan (it was prognosticated to pass about twenty miles from our coast, but it went up a bit and at the moment I don’t have the actual number – just know that we felt it weaker than expected and knew it was going upwards and at that point? We are mighty glad it was going away) we are left with no power service for four days.

I personally think that’s very reasonable, given the fact that the state of the power system of the island is terrible (refer to last year’s three day total outage) but, to preserve our fridge things (and to feed his TV addiction) my father found a generator. That made things feel more normal during those four days – although it did not worked for the A/C and I slept four to five hours each of those nights – we had most of our powered commodities available.

Even then, I confirmed my theory that the best thing to do during those situations is go outside. Nothing beats the old fashioned fun of gardening, running, and helping each other out.

While cleaning the road of branches, Little J had the awesome idea of making a campfire. It was her first but we all enjoyed it as if it was our first too. The sky looked beautiful and the breeze felt so good outside.

It was a beautiful moment of calm after the storm.

THANK YOU TO ALL PARTICIPANTS, this are the posts you shared for week 35 – I’m thankful if you shared a post last week, you can link it up here and I’ll share them together with this week’s posts next week.

Bracing for Hurricane Irma

Hi friends!

Tuesdays of Texture is supposed to go up today. I have the draft ready and everything.

But I’m not going to put it up. We are bracing ourselves to wait for Hurricane Irma to pass, you might’ve seen this thing changed from Category 3 to Category 5 in one day.

Preparations turned into serious preparations and now we are pretty much terrified.

The electric power of the island is in bad state so, they have said some sectors might not have the service for 4 months.

I ask you to please send a prayer, your good vibes and good thoughts that this island and our families may be protected.

Have a great week.

I'm in the middle of the water! I'm not! I loved this angle.

Mist falling. Birds singing.

A post shared by @naramilee on

I stopped in the worst road ever to take this pic because I just had to. It looks like I’m levitating on top of this river because of my amazing flying powers I’m standing on the side of the road! Isn’t that cool?!

There’s a sort of cement “step” right on the edge and it almost looks like you can just step into shallow water but the trick is, that’s actually deep! Not like ten feet, but deep enough that you would go “WHAAAAAAAA” if you actually stepped in.

THANKS TO ALL OF YOU LOVELY PARTICIPANTS! Go check them out:

Palm tree leaf under eclipse sun. #green #palmtree

A post shared by @naramilee on

As I stated in the description, this is how a palm tree leaf looked under the eclipse sun. Over here we had an 80% eclipse; I planned to look at the TV transmit ion and go outside to enjoy the subdued light. When the eclipse was at it’s peak I got so exited to see the sun of around 6PM so high in the sky!

The most amazing thing was to not feel the heat of the light on you, it was like standing under a yellow lamp. The temperature dropped a couple of degrees and it was simply delightful to soak it in, without feeling like you were melting.

Of course, the states that had a total eclipse had a much more dramatic experience, but I was disappointed to find that most people were recording the actual sun view and not their ‘Earth’ view, which is what I wanted to see, I wanted to see the darkness falling and then lifting.

Did you had an experience with the eclipse? Share!

Rental Feedback

Guys, I NEED YOUR FEEDBACK!

I have a beach apartment rental (if you are going to stay in Puerto Rico and want a beautiful place to stay – contact me 😉  ) and have recently listed it in different websites.  Last week was the first time someone booked it through the internet and it was AN EXPERIENCE.

I had a last minute booking and the cancelation of the last day rental and it made everything really bumpy on my side since I’m about three hours away from the place.

So I need to know, because I’ve only rented to people that have been referred by friends and family, what is common for people when you rent this kind of place (beach apartment):

Please select all that apply:

Regarding special instructions, like if I asked you to please don’t leave any perishables in the fridge and turn off the electric breakers:

Thanks so much for clicking through. Have a great day!

There’s always time for music: Versace On The Floor

I couldn’t make Dancing Mondays this week. My monday got all tangled up and I had to fix it with patience, a hair brush, high heels and ice cream, but the Versace On The Floor video came out … Sunday? Monday? A day, and when it did I started giggling like a toddler in front of a lollypop.

I got so hyped.  And then I watched it:

 

First time I saw that fro I covered my face. I blushed. I giggled more. I can not handle the amazingness of that fro. And then I saw Zendaya… and there was screaming and childish behavior that I’m not going to share because I want to keep an image.

But I mean. LOOK AT THEM TWO BEING BEAUTIFUL. LOOK AT THE ELEGANCE EXUDING FROM THAT SET. LOOK AT THE DRESS OMGOMGOMG THE DRESS IS DIVINE. EVEN THE PURPLE HAZE IS PERFECT. THIS WAS SHOT TO PERFECTION.

I love it. So I’ve watched it about twenty times and every time? I love it more.

I can not with the people commenting on age gaps – do I have to mention every classic, Oscar worthy movie with a male protagonist almost in or in his forties or fifties (specially those from the 60’s and 70’s) and the female protagonist in her twenties? Because actresses just barely started to get away with ageing very recently and that’s gonna take up so much space in any thread.

And the lack of actual sexual imagery because seriously, you are already on the web and if you want to see porn just freaking google it. This video is perfect for this song: a timeless, tasteful, elegant jam that will make you close your eyes and feel all the feels with all your clothes on.

That’s one of Bruno Mars special powers;  his songs are sensual and sexy but never vulgar.

So. This is the jam I’m singing twenty four seven this week.

#Algae on the street. #dock

A post shared by @naramilee on

I literally drove to the last bit of land on the west today, and then back. Four hours total. Actually more because high traffic was yay.

Sorry for the delay, I had programmed the trip for tomorrow. Have a beautiful day!

Side Note: Car knowledge

Me in college:  (upon hearing a car in the distance) that is a CR-X modified with an x inch exhaust and a y nitro booster.  It’s probably white and yellow.

Me now: (when having to describe a car that passed right in front of me)  It was one of those cars, like the ones that have the little *indicating curve with hands* on the back and the lights are like *indicates square with hands* and it was blue, like the new blues?  Not the blue-blue but like the new ones?  And I think it had two doors.  It could’ve been four, I’m not sure.

Stayed in the Hardcore Country Life, in a different house of course, last weekend and this friend was right beside my bed.

I’m late on my rounds to comment on each blog, please excuse me; this is back-to-school week for us and it’s been very exiting! So much that the to-do list still has items from last week 🙂 I will be leaving my comments later, but I did see your participations and whoa. I love how my photo pales in comparison with all yours. Seriously.
