Where Were You?

Today is one of many days to remember that has affected all of us in some way. 9/11 how can we forget, we can’t. Where were you when you first heard about the bad news?

I recall waking up, and hearing the sound of the DJ on the radio, the only thing is he didn’t sound like himself. he sounded so sad, and I wondered why that was, as he was always so bubbly and happy. So I listened for a bit and then realised what happened, I immediately got up and turned the TV on and to my shock! I just couldn’t believe what had happened. Omg I started to cry! Even now I still feel the sadness, and I know I will eventually have a little session.

I don’t like to have my blogs be sad, and I’m going to try to perk this one up, but I just wanted anyone who stumbles across this blog, to have at least remembered if even for 30 seconds.

I’m about to do some measurements on some items I’m going to post on Ebay. But I wanted to start this blog first. I figured I can bounce back and forth with the blog. It also gives me time to think of what I’d like to talk about. Like I said the other day, I have a lot of stuff, and my stuff was all over the room.

I did clean it up though, because it felt so much more cluttered than it needed to be.

I had a lovely comment on my last post, you know I had that plugger thing, but when I changed my theme it disappeared along with a few other plug-ins than I just couldn’t be bothered to add it again, I’ll have to see about that. So thank you very much for leaving me a comment Mahala, I will be paying you all a visit. Thank you again.

Phew, I had to walk away from the blog, I had to iron, measure and take pictures of four blouses, wow that alone took long lol. I’m glad it’s done, now I download the pictures, crop what I need to crop, and create my descriptions, fun stuff!!

I know it will pay off in the end, and I mean literally pay off :heh:

Anyway I shall be going, and I am going to leave you with a music video of a song suggested by Vicky, thank you so much !! It’s a great song! I’m going to check out all the songs If you have a song you would like to suggest, leave it in my comments, I will post one in my next blog post. Have a lovely weekend!

Happy Cinco de Mayo

Although I am not Mexican, I did grow up around the Mexican culture, it’s very similar to my Guatemalan culture. Growing up in California, I was exposed to this celebration yearly. I really enjoyed it, it had always been a very festive holiday. You would see colorful decorations all around, in school, shops, just about everywhere. There was music, dancing, costumes, parades, and a lot of tequila and beer hehe, the same in Los Angeles just on a much larger scale, specifically on Olvera Street in Los Angeles. Olvera Street get’s really packed on weekends if Cinco de Mayo falls on a weekend, during the week it’s a bit slower as any other major holiday. The food has always been so good. It’s one of my favorites! Cinco de Mayo is celebrated all over the United States, outside of the US apart from Mexico, I don’t know. I’ll leave you with a video, with some celebrating going on from a past Cinco de Mayo.

As for myself, the only celebrating I’ll be doing is at home. As it’s a weekday, and I don’t know anyone in Massachusetts apart from William and his family. So it’ll be us doing a little Cinco de Mayo celebrating here. Not much, but it’ll be fun. Mexican food and corona’s tonight woohoo!!! Anyway this is short and sweet, Happy Cinco de Mayo everyone, be safe and don’t drink/text and drive. I’ll leave you with another Cinco de Mayo video.
