Quite a foggy evening in Cascais, Portugal yesterday. Anyone knows what that means?

Wow! I have totally been neglecting my blog. It so happens that I have had to take care of my number one priority- my boys! The summer holidays had me pretty occupied with playdates, swim lessons, beach days, just plain ‘feeling like a bum’ days, outings to visit the Lisbon Oceanarium, the Estoril Arts and Craft shows, Barbeques, the list goes on, not to mention the normal day to day activities to run a home. The saying is true: “Time flies when you are having fun!” I sure enjoy having fun, but do not like so much when the time flies.

Enough of that! I have a bunch of new crafting projects that I worked on in between the busy activities. I will be putting these up to share, shortly. For now though, I just wanted to stop in and make a note that I am still alive and doing well.

Next week, I plan to upload some new SCAL.scut files, that you should find useful.

Take care and catch you later.

My Tribute to MJ June 27, 2009

Its all in the news on every station. Even here in Portugal, every station seems to be paying tribute to Michael Jackson. I heard the news 315am on June 26th when I woke up to do some work. The news was shocking and sad for me. My heart always went out for this “poor” man that I have only met through his music.

It all started when I heard the song “Beat It” as a child. I would listen to the song over and over. Back then it was just a song being song by Michael Jackson, a pretty cool looking guy by my standards. We did not have cable tv, so I am sure it was just a photo of him that I saw. I never knew how I would grow to love his music and his dance moves.

Well, now he is gone. But his music will definitely live on in my world, like many of my other favorite artist, such as, Bob Marley, Al Green, Barry White, Luther Vandross, just to name a few-too many.

MJ, I pray that God’s angels and saints welcome you with open arms, no strings attached. Rest in peace, Michael.
