Still here on Vacation for a while

Image
I will be away for a while I will be posting pictures of the places I visit. Thanks for stopping by. This picture is from the "Capilla Del Cristo" in the old city of San Juan. Located at Parque de las Palomas (Pigeon's Park ) on Calle Cristo, this is a beautiful and unique chapel set at the foot of steep cliffs. This small chapel was built in the 1700's. According to a legend the builder was a man whose life was saved when he and his runaway horse suddenly stopped short before plunging over the cliffs. In an act of gratitude to God for saving his life, this saved soul built the chapel on the exact spot where his life was spared.

You Can Reach The Weirdness Within

Image
THE RULES: Each player of this game starts with the 6 weird things about you. People who get tagged need to write a blog of their own 6 weird things as well as state this rule clearly. In the end, you need to choose 6 people to be tagged and list their names. Don't forget to leave a comment that says you are tagged in their comments and tell them to read your blog.

So I got tagged and asked to share my weirdness, so If you read my blog you can consider yourself tagged if you want to answer as well go ahead and mention where you got tagged from.. LOL! It is hard to think of things that are weird when they are normal to you. What more unusual that the Stonehenge picture I took myself. So I am to share 6 weird things about myself, I think that's too few ROFL! Nevertheless I will give you the joy of Laughter through my experience.

1. Few people know this , but I am a ghost whisperer, I have been talking to the dead since I was a child and continue to do to this day. To me there is n…

I am the Spice of Arakis!

Image
If you ever saw this movie "Dune" you know what I am talking about when I say I am the Spice of Arakis. Dune is set far in the future amidst a sprawling feudal interstellar empire where planetary fiefdoms are controlled by noble Houses that owe allegiance to the Imperial House Corrino. The novel tells the story of young Paul Atreides (heir apparent to Duke Leto Atreides and scion of House Atreides) as he and his family relocate to the planet Arrakis, the only source of the spice melange, the most important and valuable substance in the universe. In a story that explores the complex interactions of politics, religion, ecology, technology, and human emotion, the fate of Paul, his family, his new planet and its native inhabitants, as well as the Padishah Emperor, the powerful Spacing Guild, and the secretive female order of the Bene Gesserit, are all drawn together into a confrontation that will change the course of humanity.

But why wait for that to happen LOL! So why does this…

Early Holiday Hat finished!

Image
Hello everyone and welcome to the Newest hat of 2007, even if it is from 2006's Season of Hats. The hat is mainly made in sc all around and it has the last Rows made on dc. The candy stripe is made with Front Post Double Crochet or fpdc as some may know it.


The hat is made of about 60 % acrylic and 40 % Merino wool. It is almost Machine Washable LOL! The top of the hat is made in red followed by a combination of green and red sc. I was able to create 4 Triangle like shapes that emulate pine trees. Did you notice the beard is gone? Well as you can see I am on my way back to growing it once more.

The bottom part of the hat that turns up and is a collection of four Rows of Double Crochets,. Actually it is Two Rows of Double Crochet, One row of Reversed Sc, then two more Rows of Double Crochet and the finishing Row is another Reveresed Single Crochet Row. It is definitely Christmasy in colors and nature, but we are in Winter still.

My next journey will be socks I believe, some knitted an…

Three Kings a Christmas Hat And 2007

Image
Here you see the three Kings pointing to the Star. I am never idle and at this time I am very busy getting ready for other projects that I have.

Here you have my latest hat. It is a combination of Merino wool and acrylic. It's an original design as I make all my hats that way. It is single crochet all around and I used 6 bobbins of the green to make it easy to crochet. Sometimes when you carry the yarn around it does not look nice.


I am doing the brim in a Front Post Double Crochet all around with the red and the white. I am always amazed at the shape that hats take when you improvise and decide to do something different. My next projects are going to be crocheted and knitted socks and some knitted cabled scarfs.


Thanks for stopping by.

Merry Christmas!

Christmas 2006-2007 was a wonderful time to share in the Holiday Spirit! There were Harmonicas. T-Shirts, Pajamas, Ipods, Cameras, memory, harddrives, Lots and Lots of Chocolate, Tea Cups, Teapot, Teas, hand creams, hand lotions, there were jeans, sweaters, so much stuff that is needed and that will be used. Even Buster got a gift.

I celebrate Orthodox Christmas as well or the Epiphany or Three Kings Day as well, so the Christmas tree is up until the day after or January 7th.

The Epiphany (Greek: επιφάνεια, "the appearance; miraculous phenomenon") is aChristianfeast intended to celebrate the 'shining forth' or revelation of God to mankind in human form, in the person of Jesus. The observance had its origins in the eastern Christian churches, and included the birth of Jesus; thevisit of the Magi, or Wise Men (traditionally named Caspar, MelchiorandBalthasar) who arrived in Bethlehem; and all of Jesus' childhood events, up to hisbaptismin the Jordan by John the Bapt…
