Word of the day...

Lagrimas de guitarra, de amor, de vida, y de paz

pero lagrimas de lluvia suban el corazon al cielo

y sientes tranquilo.


...the first day of Fall and for once it feels like Fall. Stepped out this morn and took in a long breath of fresh air but I hear the warmer temps will be here by the weekend.

...Listening to the Seduction from Under the Rose and it's just taking me away to another realm. The new music from Rahim AlHaj and Ottmar Liebert is exquisite and if you haven't done so yet, stop by the website and download this free music, which is also for a good cause.

I was at a reception the other night and these stones on the table reminded me of one of my favorite games called Pente ...the classic game of skill and I still have my old tube from way back in the 80's. Yes, I know I just dated myself here. Haven't played the game in awhile though. Only a few games I like to play and another big fave is Scrabble and I use to play the game on my old cell phone. My new blackberry comes with Brickbreaker but I still miss my old game of Scrabble. Other games are Solitaire and Uno. Love Uno!

Anyway, interesting to read up on Wiki about how the game got started. Will have to check out the online website.

What were some of your favorite games?

Painful past week and a half...in that I didn't have access to the internet at home. WARING-AT&T is BAD!!!! I got so screwed by them in the past few months with either the phone line dead and/or the internet dead and each time I called they assured me that the problem was fixed but to no avail! I think in the past three summer months, I had called a total of 6 times for repair. I finally gave up on them fixing the problem and am now online by way of Comcast. Much faster for sure and with cable connection

The photo was taken last week at the office after I broke another piece of glass...this time a frame. Previously, I had broken two glasses at home...one wine glass and a vase. When I bent down to pick up the glass in my office it hit me that maybe this was some kind of sign. So, I asked my massage therapist on Saturday and sure enough her reply was "reflection of self and the changes...a disconnection of the past and a connection to the future by way of CLARITY. Of course, I mentioned my upcoming 50th birthday next month and her reply was...."there you have it...the explanation.

No internet @ home and access only by blackberry still has its limitations. BTW, Serena Williams deserved to lose US Open!

23 Mile Ride!

23 Mile Ride!
Originally uploaded by Nieve44/La Luz
I enjoyed a bike ride through town on Sunday--23 miles to be exact! Here are some members of the Houston Bicycle Club...these are some seasoned bike riders and surprisingly, I kept up with the group but thankfully, they were all on a leisurely bike ride. We even got lost a bit but I truly enjoyed the adventure and looking forward to next month's ride! The woman at the front is my co-worker and was the leader of the group...I made sure to stay close to her as much as possible as I didn't want to get lost along the way. Here we are just leaving Catalina Coffee house on Washington before heading back to our starting point at Stude Park in the Heights. The ride was just over 3 hours and the last 1/2 of the ride, I was feeling a little weary from our trek but so glad that I completed the ride!

Here's my TRIO of loved ones from Erika's birthday dinner at the Grand Lux Cafe taken on August 21st. This year was #20 and so hard to believe! As I write this, it is September 1st AND where did the past three months go much less the past 20 years and three months from now where will have time gone?

Summer began with Erika moving out and returning back home but for good this time as she decided to pursue her studies at the Community College, which makes better sense given finances. Just as I was getting used to her being gone and re-arranging her room into the guest room, came the request from my nephew asking if he could move in. So, he and his sister traded spaces and three months later he's moved in and still settling into his new surroundings but so far all is well. He comes and goes as much as Erika did and maybe even more, which is fine...just as long as he pays the agreed rent for the next year then we'll be in good terms! ;-)

BTW, is Martin next in line to move in? Only time will tell.
