what’s for dinner?

Well since I’ve been here in California I’ve been missing all the food I usually ate in Mexico, so I have been cooking!! yes you read it well, I AM cooking and introducing Brandon to many new flavor flavs!!!! hahahah no, seriously, he loves Mexican food but I think that Mexican food prepared by a Mexican Girl is better right?? well I have been making my mom proud by cooking a lot of things she taught me in the past… unfortunately I don’t have pictures of everything, which I think I will do in the future for evidence hahahaha but I did take some pics of our dinner the other night, Real Mexican “Carne Asada” tacos with black beans the way God intended people to eat them! not that fried tortilla crap you see everywhere in the US sold as Tacos, no no no, the real soft corn tortilla tacos, with lettuce and table cream on them, and also with a little bit of red rice (made with a tomato and chicken season) oh my, just writing about this is making me hungry!!! so without further ado… here’s the evidence!!!!

it ain’t cool!

Ok, so here’s my first scarry story here in the woods..

it happened 5 days after I got here, I was at home waiting for Brandon to come back from work, it was about 3.15pm (he usually gets out of work at 3.30) so I thought, mmh I need to take the trash out and maybe smoke a cigarette while I’m out, no big deal right??? WRONG! I open the door and what do I find on the middle of the deck??? a SNAKE! and mind you we are on the second floor, so I am thinking to myself, how the heck did this snake climb the stairs????? First of all I have a phobia to snakes, they scare the heck out of me, second I was alone and third I hate snakes!!! lol am I clear enough???

Well, my first reaction was to freeze, I was so scared that I dropped the trash bag, slammed the door and ran inside shaking, I grab the phone and called Brandon, when I told him “there is a snake on the deck” he said “Cool!” no no, it ain’t cool buddy, come home as fast as you can!! at this point I started to freak out and cry like a baby, you will have to consider that I was alone, in the woods, just moved in to a different country and hormones where flying all over the place.. so 10 minutes after I called him he got here and I was in the corner of the couch still crying, so he went ouside to check for the huge snake (in my fear I saw it huge) and nothing, he looked all over, downstairs, everywhere and nothing, I couldn’t believe it!!! the sucker had scaped!!! well no so fast.. I wasn’t going to let it go that easy, so I carefully went outside to the deck and when he was saying “it’s gone, you probably scared it” I looked down at the stairs and there it was!!! in the middle of them!! so lucky me I’m living with a Indiana Jones/Steve Irwin kinda men hahaha so he went off and grabbed the mofo which after all wasn’t that big as I thought, BUT these type of snakes ( gopher snake ) mimic the rattle snakes!! so I was right to be scared..

Anyhow, here it is…

Behold!!! the one guilty of my first scarry experience in the woods. (keep on mind that Brandon is 6’4″ and has big hands so the snake might look tiny but it really wasn’t that small)

Quick Update

Hello 4 readers out there!! hehehe, just a quick updat to let you know everything is fine, I’m just caught up with some other things that eat most of my “online” time so that’s why I haven’t been here a lot…

Some good things are coming my way, I’ll leave in a week and a half for a “unplugged” trip.. meaning I need to get away from here, see other people, other places, other things… I need a break!!! although I will be in the same country it will be different.. 5 days away is all I need right now and I will bring lots of fotage and stories to post….

I have a new obsession, you know me, once I find something I don’t stop untill I’m sick of it… but I don’t think I will be sick of this new form of comunication known as Stickam… is a live chat and it’s really fun… try it!

in other news, I’ve met the most amazing people, new friends that I know will last for a very long time, so I’m happy about that…. also I met somebody who keeps me away from doing anything else but talk to him for hours.. so yeah, I am good 🙂

 Ok, so that’s it for now… keep coming back so I don’t close this shit yet another time hahahaha..

Love you!!!

Don’t ever hire me for a painting job

And that title is because it took me 2 whole weeks to finish the painting of a tiny wall!!! imagine how much time it will take me to do the other wall on the living room wich is huge! hahahaha… anyways, with the spirit of keeping this blog alive and updated, I will follow up with my latest post.

My good friend Jill helped me but I have to say that I did most of the job, so the wall is finished and I think it looks great, we were able to  transfer the idea that I had in my head to the wall as it was, so here are the pictures of the process, I forgot to take the before pic, sorry but it was white so imagine that and also, don’t mind the mess…

So, what do you think?? I chose green because lately (as you can see by my top) I’ve been liking that color, the first choice was purple but that was a little to much hehehehe…

Ok, so that’s it for today.. Have a great weekend!!

I’m not ready to make nice..

Forgive, sounds good
Forget, I’m not sure I could
They say time heals everything
But I’m still waiting

I’m through with doubt
There’s nothing left for me to figure out
I’ve paid a price
And I’ll keep paying

I’m not ready to make nice
I’m not ready to back down
I’m still mad as hell and
I don’t have time to go round and round and round
It’s too late to make it right
I probably wouldn’t if I could
‘Cause I’m mad as hell
Can’t bring myself to do what it is you think I should

sagittarius.jpgYou may have had a hard time launching long-term personal goals lately, dear Sagittarius. Today marks a critical starting point toward attaining them. Perhaps there has been some confusion or delay in this area. You will find that things are suddenly becoming much clearer. Move forward with projects that you have been putting off lately because they have been too frustrating to deal with.
