tree huggers and other weekend wonders

top of the morning to ya.
this weekend was full of so much goodness…  I hardly know where to begin.
how about at the very beginning.

Saturday was our very last activity day with the community niños for two thousand eleven.  we made masks to go along with our skit about not succumbing to peer pressure by wearing different “masks” for different groups of friends.  
I’m gonna miss these babies
we found lots of time to play

in the evening, we invited all the parents and the rest of the family members, to join us for supper, hot chocolate, and a campfire.  it was so much fun to see all the babies that will soon be joining us in our activities at the ranch.
this little guy literally [hammed it up] for me when I told him I was going to take his picture.
on sunday I stayed cozy under my blankets to listen to a message from my home church.  the temperatures have been hittign low thirties at nights. 
in the afternoon I went out shopping in the street for my {giveaway gift} that I’m happy to say is only {one} follower away from being {given}.
I looked in all the little shops, scanned all the carts with the super pushy sales men, and found the most perfect gift that is seriously gonna [rockyourworld].
after a quick bite to eat at my favorite taco stand, I headed over to my happy spot to warm up my abuelos y abuelas with some christmas music.
I love watching people come alive when they hear music.  it brings me so much joy.
this guy has to be one of my favorites…  okokok…  they’re ALL my favorites.
he is always apologizing for not being able to clap for me because of his one bad hand. 
{aww}  can’t help but squeeze him. 
monday got off to a slow start.  I talked to my {seester nicole} on skype for a lot of the morning.  it felt so good to just talk sister talk.  I knitted away at this puppy while I talked.
super pumped at how my computer case turned out.
(and of course im wearing my lounge arounds.  whhhy nnnot???  did you expect anything less???)

finally around the late hour of noon or… one, I made it out from under my cozy piles of blankets to check some stuff off my [to do] list.  and boy did I kick.hinny.
  1. clean bathroom [check]
  2. do dishes [check]
  3. two loads of laundry [check]
  4. vacuumed my room [check]
  5. go out on a fat persons run [check]
6.   do 3 minutes of resistance bands my {love} bought me [check]
I also got to see this man trying to shimmy his way down this palm tree across the street.
or is he a real live tree hugger???
one should venture out more often.

he had this makeshift rope thingy-mu-bob-jigger tied around his waste. I was scared for his life.
he wasn’t young either.
he made it I can happily report.
so…  that was my weekend.  very exciting for someone who rides solo on her weekends.
a bloggy friend made a wonderful suggestion this weekend, that I’ve been wanting to do for a long time, but keep putting it off.
she suggested an {about} page.
it is a splendid idea especially if you are a new reader and read all this lingo in spanish, see all the beautiful niños, and wonder where the heck I am, and what on earth am I doing.
stay tuned for a few bloggity changes.
have a great week my dears!
