What’s Up Wednesdays? #4

Wednesday greetings to you all!  I hope you’re all having a good week so far.  Trinidad and Tobago was on a storm watch for the last few days and the tropical storm “Bret” finally hit us yesterday.

Unfortunately, we did have some reports of persons losing their homes due to landslides.  We had heavy rains and various reports of flooding that caused a lot of families to distress.  There were also reports of no electricity in some parts of the island.

Today for the most part most of the country sunny.  Most of us have returned to work and some of the children returned to schools.   My heart goes out to the families who have been affected by the flooding. I hope that the relevant authorities give them the necessary help they need in the fastest possible time.

So it’s time for me to share what’s been going on so let’s get into it.

What I’m eating this week:

Today for lunch, I had homemade beef lasagna with callaloo and green salad enriched with a few slices of avocado.  Sorry no pictures, I ate all my lunch already.  I’m bowing my head in shame.  I love avocados.  They taste so good and they’re also good for you.  For dinner, we might make some beef empanadas. What are you having for lunch today?

What I’m reminiscing about: 

Nothing much today. I am at peace with myself at the moment. Thank God for that.   🙂

What I’m loving:

My friend Cheila over at Pink for Days did a piece on me last week Thursday that totally made my day. It was part of her Perfect Party Series and I was featured.  She is really a sweet and kind person and I’m glad I met her.  If you like you can check it out Perfect Party Series #10 Cherylene.  Thank you, Cheila!

 What I’ve been up to:

I’ve been posting more than usual for the past few days sometimes two or three posts for the day.  It feels like I have so much to say sometimes then there are days when I can only do one piece.

Writing and blogging are definitely a passion and the more I get into it the more I enjoy it.  I’m glad I took the leap and did it.  The support and encouragement I have received from my family and the blogging community especially has been more than I expected.  Thank you! 🙂

What I’m dreading:

Rainy Season! It’s the start of the rainy season here.  I love the rain don’t get me wrong but when you have things to do and places to go it could be a bit of a bother. I have some painting in and around the house that I hope to start in the next few weeks so we’ll see how that goes.

What I’m working on:

My family and I are overdue for a change of scenery so I’m working on planning a vacation getaway for us.  Will let you guys know what I come up with.  I’ll definitely be taking pictures of that adventure to share with you. 🙂

What I’m excited about:

Vacation, vacation, vacation!!!!  Did someone say vacation? I love packing my suitcase to leave for my new destination.  The kids love it too and nothing gets them more excited than the thought of going on an aeroplane.  🙂

What I’m watching:

So I finally started Orphan Black Season 1.  The show grips you from the beginning and doesn’t take long to get into the drama as the plot thickens. There is a lot going on so you need to stay seated or pause the show because you could miss something. Will I continue watching the series?  Definitely, I need to see where this goes.  Thank you Angela. 🙂

Who/ What I’m listening to:

Shawn Mendez – Stitches and Treat You Better . I love those songs!!!

What I’m wearing:

I’ve made an executive decision to change this heading to “Let’s go shopping!” instead hope that’s okay.  Where should we go? I don’t know where to start. Here are a few pictures of some stuff I liked online.


The first picture is from Lulu Fashion Lounge.  The second and third are from Dress Up.   Please note, that I have not purchased anything from these stores but I love some of the clothes they had on offer.  If you’ve purchased from them let me know your thoughts.  I personally love these looks and would definitely wear all of these.  Do you have an online favourite place to buy your clothes, if you shop online?

What I’m doing this weekend:

This weekend is a lot like last weekend so there will be chores in the forecast. The kids have lessons so maybe to help them relax this weekend we could go and do something fun like go to the beach or maybe take them to Chuckecheese! I know they will love that. We’ll see how the weekend goes.

What I’m looking forward to the next month:

The closure of schools and the start of vacation.

What else is new?

I created a new segment called Music Reflection Mondays where I highlight music from my childhood to date that has helped me through the various periods in my life. Feel free to take a look. I feel very good about this new addition.  Hope you enjoy it too.  Look out for it every Monday.

Thanks for taking time to read and visit my blog.  That’s all for now.  Make the rest of the week a great one.

See you soon.

  1. What’s Up Wednesday is a really neat idea but it was not inspired by me. I saw it on Cheila’s blog over at and decided to try it with a little twist of my own here and there. I’m happy that you like it. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by.
