Tuesdays of Texture | Week 16 of 2017

Well, the weather read my post and was like “haha sun?! Nah!”  This guy was so happy it bloomed for the first time in we don’t even remember.

And we’ve been doing inside games and activities during the long weekend. Until yesterday I got so restless that I thought it’d be a good idea to go out and shop the floors we need to find for some re-do work on for the beach apartment. All of you who have shop floors just went “ouch!”  I know.  I.  KNOW.

If you’ve never shop floors, I’ll tell you what’s a not very fun activity: shop floors.  I felt isolated the whole trip.  I was doing the calculations to stay on an insane budget and it was lonely in that calculator screen.  

Also, how can a floor be so freaking expensive?  My best consideration so far is Traffic Master’s ready to mount wood imitation because it needs no additional materials.  If anyone has feedback on that, please enlighten me.

The sun is out!

Sunday Little J had a stumble – after I explained she couldn’t run in sandals (little heel bought by her father), while I was actually telling her to not run – in short pants (which I never put on her precisely because of this, but I thought it was a safe move because we were only going for frozen yogurt) and bruised both her knees, so I went a little further on our little Sunday ride so she could see the ocean and feel better.

The breeze was spectacular and I found this textures around.

Got this last week while walking a sidewalk; a  figurative and literal sidewalk.  Saw this colors and how smooth that tree was and I stopped, both to catch a breath that I had lost a few moments before, and also to touch it.  Trees stay with everything in our fingers you know?

Friday our web service went down and yesterday I learned it was because someone stole cable from the company and it’s gonna take a while to get fixed.  I’m posting this from Little J’s school and, you know what they do to kids here?  They have twitter (and all social media, I guess) blocked!  It’s cruel!  And awesome.  Oh, but they can blog… interesting.
I’ll be updating this with all participations of last week later.  (Last week’s post has all the links too.)

Have a great day and share a bit of it with Tuesdays of Texture!

Soft pink paradise.

A post shared by @naramilee on

Officially the latest Tuesday’s of Texture post I’ve ever made; spent the day with Little J in a doctor’s office trying to figure out how we are going to stop infections.  I didn’t post out of cheer stress and worry.  

We are home now following a new treatment (and no new antibiotics!) so I’m breathing again and managed to eat something so: here’s something soft and fluffy and pink!

#Mango tree #blooming for Tuesdays of Texture. #spring #green #yum #homegrown

A post shared by @naramilee on

(Make sure you swipe to see both pics!  Love that instagram feature.)

PUERTO RICO IS GOING TO THE FINALS IN THE BASEBALL WORLD CLASSIC!

Now, back to regular programming;  this spring is looking good on mother nature.  Found our mango tree blooming like it’s a competition.  Everyone is going to be getting mangoes.

I’ve mentioned it before, but I love that mango tree not only because it gives the most delicious finer-free mangoes, but because my grandfather himself grafted it with pineapple.  The taste of those mangoes used to bring people here from all over the island when he was alive.

Trees are one of the best gifts in a family.

I’m so thankful for every participation last week;  I couldn’t go around everyone’s blog to comment because I had a virus that had me in bed just moaning and whining but THANK YOU EVERYONE!

Exploring.

A post shared by @naramilee on

Living in the mountains we used to enjoy rainy days out exploring. It’s one of the very few things I miss from The HardCore Country Life.

All you wonderful participations of last week, THANK YOU! You can go check each other out clicking the links:

bent tree bark

Would you look at this friend trying to escape from his house?!  I had to stop and do some pics because it was just so curious.  Also kinda looks like an alien’s octopus foot.

Really nice “spots” in the bark.  Have no idea about the name of this though, if any of you do chime it in the comments 🙂

The National Circus of Puerto Rico, fantastic every single time.

I’m featuring their outfits, all their clothing was so rich in texture.  There was at least one item of each performer that I wanted for myself.

I apologize for not immediately linking last week’s participations;  Little J is staying home from school to recuperate from a weekend fever and we have a lot of important games to play today.  I’ll link all participations tomorrow, but thank each and every one of last week’s contributors.

Edited to add participations!

Have a beautiful day! And share a bit of it with Tuesday’s of Texture!

The weather got confused last week and instead of the normal cold we are supposed to have in February (our coldest month of the year) it gave us the best sunny, pleasantly breeze summer days and boy, we were all over that.

I decided whenever the weather cooperated we were going to do a beach day – even if it meant after school, which is a little bit tricky because sand in the car, bags to carry, wet things… and I’ve been known to melt down because the seat got an inch spot, so you know… bit of a gamble.

We are back to normal this week.  The ocean is fierce this morning and it’s already raining, so I’m clinging to this photos like a sloth to their tree.

THANKS to every single participation last week.  There are some terrific images in there, do go check them out:

Have a great day!

Root in rock.

A post shared by @naramilee on

Sat beside this on a recent trip. Spent my ten minutes there worried that a lizard would confuse me with a tree branch because, of course they cannot tell the difference.  Says the bilogist. (Me.)

Also wondered how that tree part/root part/part?  Grew there.
