(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!

Trees be like

Went on a tiny hike on the weekend. It was supposed to be a bike excursion but, bikes were not permitted (and it was trip to get there, mind you) so we made it into a hike trip and pretended to be PJ Masks in the forest because that is the correct way to hike, I think.

We fought orange lava, imaginary crocodiles, dinosaurs (actual iguanas) and villain insects.

During snack time we were sitting in the car and I heard my mom gasp.  She pointed towards the trees were I just saw the fattest iguana I have seen to date.  I have a pic too but I’ll add it later because I left the camera in the car.  

 I stared at that thing until we got out of there, afraid that it would jump us for food.  Or for FUN.

Do check out last week’s participations, and thank you peeps for sharing your posts with us!

I always wanted to do a macro of that fluffy thing up there.  Specially when driving besides a terrain with them.  So, that is one of my dream shots.  I love the dimension and the texture feeling on it.

Some other textures I got from this river visit.

Leaf skeleton delicately hanging there, close second favorite!

 

I still have photos of that place that I want to share.  It’s gonna have to be later though because I’m still doing doctor visits with Little J trying to figure out why she’s sick again.

Please check out last week’s awesome participations, and THANKS to everyone that linked up!

 

 

Have a great day and remember to share a bit of it with me!

Did I mention that the trek to this river was… a little on the harsh side?  That we had to walk up a road and then enter private farming land (with permission, because everyone knows everyone) and then spiral down a high mountain through a thin path so steep that we had to hold on to bushes and trees to not slip down?

No?  My brain has a badass defensive system.  My mom was commenting on it, I forget the most horrible things some people have said to me, but remember the best and happiest moments with them.  Which is an awesome way to feel lighter and pick yourself up after an emotional down, but is also problematic when you need to stand up for yourself.

Like, the blackout?  in a few weeks I won’t remember how Baby J and I slept drenched in sweat before my father was able to find a power plant that could connect the fans (and the fridge), or how I heated three different pre-made foods before I gave up and made white rice-alone- for Baby J because I’ve gotten her used to fresh homemade food and the downside was that I needed to find such food in an island with no power and no gas stove. (Am buying a portable one as soon as I have a few bucks.)

I actually freaked out and headed to Wendy’s thinking I might find something to eat but then I saw the line getting to the end of the place and decided not to risk a two hour wait line, with a tired Baby J.

But all I will remember later will be how much we played together and how much we enjoyed the little simple things. Although, there was a hashtag on facebook about how we “went back to being people ” because the blackout made us go outside, talk to people, watch the stars; and I’m not taking any of that crap. That blackout was a nightmare for anyone who medically needed power and for everyone with a full fridge or freezer.

Anyway.  It was a thirty minute intense trek going up back from the river.  I stopped three times to catch my breath, both because it was so hard and because my fitness condition is around -192% at this point.

Have a happy day!  And remember to share a bit of it with me!

Before I left the Hardcore Country Life – two days to be exact – I visited this place:

hidden river

And it was out-of-a-movie beautiful.  Out-of-a-dream beautiful.  Can-not-even beautiful.  So much that it almost made me not want to go.  How can someone leave a place like this behind?

The thing is, that place was close to where I was living, decently close that you would think I had been there several times in three years.  There were certainly many occasions for it, free days where I wondered where to take Baby J to see something awesome.  Two days before I left was the first time I went there.  I had never seen that before.  In almost four years.

Manfriend never had time.  That’s one of his things. The other day I reminded him about a teacher-parent reunion and he said I had to remind him again closer to the date because he didn’t had time to look at the calendar I sent him.   I wonder how I get to do everything and remember about the parent-teacher reunion.  Must be a super-hero power.

You’ll see more of the textures I found over there in next week’s post.

I stopped a drive with Baby J to shoot these.   She said she wouldn’t mind waiting in the car for a bit, so I got these as fast as I could and then ran back to the drivers seat.

When I buckled up she asked me to see the photos and she liked them! That makes them awesome in my book. 

These mushrooms are pretty large, I snuck an image with my feet for size reference.

And yes, those are my Ed Hardys, from 2010.  Manfriend hated them and I was stupid enough to leave them here.   In any case, they are in good shape and I’ll use them till they fall apart.

I so loved last week’s participations, check them out:

Have an amazing Tuesday! And remember to share a bit of it with me.

inside lake

I stumbled upon this place a few days ago while looking for some shade and a place to kill some time on a car trip and, as it usually happens with this type of thing, carelessly took one of my favorite Tuesdays of Texture shots of all time:

Love the background.

swallows nests

Also, BIRDIES!  Look at them swallows.  I was smitten.  Their warble is the sweetest thing.  I didn’t care I was hungry and melting while I was hearing them, when I got into the car I immediately did, but while they were serenading me, no problems!

Walks outside are a rare thing now because it rains every afternoon, so a few days back when we could walk in dry land we were ecstatic.  Baby J was particularly exited to find these friends.  You have to give it to them, their color is amazing, but how the heck do they camouflage from predators?  They’re like little red signs walking around “eat me!”

Please take a minute to click on these links and enjoy the awesome participations from last week:

Thanks for watching.  Go have a great day.  And share a bit of it with me!

So, last week? Ate me.  It ate me, regurgitated me and now I’m here all chewed and beginning to rot.

I’ve had hard weeks before, I had a work week were was working before getting out of bed that almost ate me, but this was ridiculous.

I had to attend a convention for manfriend’s business without manfriend because he was angry with me – and I didn’t do anything, seriously besides helping his butt – and I also had to work as a photographer in said convention.  I had to do portraits, corporate group shots, food shots;  I worked a lot, and by the way, I’m no photographer so it was HARD. And I had to do it all alone because his majesty idiot didn’t care.

Anyway. On the way to the convention I passed that sculpture piece and mentally winced. 

Party in a hat for last week’s participations:

Share a bit of your day with me, please. I need it.
Have a good one!
