No point saying TGIF right about now

March 28, 2014

I love to check in with everyone in the morning. Usually I get the rounds in my email inbox and just click on everyone and see what you’re up to. If I can’t subscribe by email, then it takes me forever to click around, so I love the email option.
Where was I going with this?
Oh yeah. Daryl wrote TGIF on her post this morning and it got me thinking that I didn’t really care if it is Friday or not…except that there are only two days of my vacation left, but apart form that, life is pretty much just lovely here in the sun.

And isn’t that the point of vacations? Complete freedom from the work week.

Speaking of freedom, Chloe wore her freedom dress today. She calls it that because under the dress size on the label it says “freedom”.

So I watched her float around in this lovely hand-painted dress and all the little children were looking at her and thinking, “she’s an angel!”. (Some of the teen boys were actually thinking that too…lol)

She also re-chained my bracelet with the beads the sea didn’t want and some new ones. I love my new bracelet.

Today we felt really tired, but it’s probably the sun.
I did the beach yoga class in the morning and wasn’t really feeling the aqua-cise afternoon class.

Do we really look that silly splashing around to LMFAO’s I’m Sexy and I Know It! Lol 😀


Down on the beach the peddlers are trying it on with absolutely everyone.

And then, after a while, they run out of people to tempt and take a break. (big relief)

C found a friend. The wildlife rescue society came round with a young female banana boa offering photos for a 50 pesos donation. We happily donated and C tried the boa on for size. She loved every minute of it. She positively beamed as she felt the snake contract muscles in her powerful little body. (No, we’re not keeping her!)

C and boa

Later on in the day we met up with Fernando the craft expert and some resort friends, including the two beautiful poppets, Alexandra and Adeline, for a little crepe paper flower making.

Did we stop at flowers? I don’t think so. Pretty soon there were butterflies as well.

    Love that freedom dress! what a great way to label “one size fits all”, lol
    Great snake! I have always loved and wanted a boa constrictor ever since I was a little girl. But I married a man who would faint at the sight of a snake so . . .
    Those beach peddlers, ugh.
    Happy Beach day!!

      Did you really? Well, funny how life works out. This one will eventually grow three times the size..yikes. If that’s the case I’d hate to have it reduced to living out its life in a cage in a suburban home, better it slithers around in a tropical canopy. 🙂

    such a great resort you chose with so much to do … i remember those beach peddlers well from my visit to Acapulco a lifetime ago .. isn’t it wonderful to be able to visit blogs via email? if you didn’t, would you get that brain/wife comment t-shirt for Ray? i will pay you for both the shirt and postage .. xo

      T shirt bought! But my price for sending it to you is extremely high!!! It’ll cost you a sketch…oh yes…you must sketch me something in return. 😀

    Good week for you Veronica!

      Thank you so much Roberto. I must admit I stayed away from the snake too. But wonderful that the rescue society takes care of her. 🙂

    Playing catch up in regards to your vaca posts…that snake pic ? I think because of its coloring at first I couldn’t tell if it was real or fabric ! Love her freedom dress and seeing all the fun that you two were having 🙂
