Bustelo Coffee Holder Zuma Yamaha


After repeated attempts at purchasing a delicious coffee.  Even before arriving at destination, it has spilled entirely out even with a lid.

The recipe:

café con leche

After searching for a coffee beverage holder for my 2009 Zuma Yamaha and coming up with no results ;

I designed this.

Directions

Always have Bustelo on hand

Find hammer which has not been used since trying to open a coconut years ago

Find a phillips screwdriver

Attempt to hold can while hammering a hole with said screwdriver

If successful, take a quick tie and secure it to the outside of basket.

Now, you can have coffee at the beach and it will hopefully be a full cup.

 

I wonder why Yamaha put in a slanted holder in front. It does not hold anything drinkable.

Surprise Visitors are the Best


I am feeling so blessed too have seen Malcolm and my dear Ladybug. It was a quickie visit, spur of the moment.

They arrived around 3 in the afternoon the 23 rd of April and left at 9:45 AM this morning the 24 th.

I was on the phone with her shortly after my daughter went to work. The phone sound was set to a special ring but I thought it was her, so I answered.

It was my granddaughter. She asked me what I was doing and I told her making a pancake and she said “make me one.”

Well, that went over my head.

A little while later while we are still on the phone

Knock , KNOCK.

Later she told me she had been knocking a long time. I must have thought it was the kids trying to place their Hamsters and offspring for the third time in a week.

I would love one of their cages and great tubing, it would fit right in Bears castle. A second floor condo.

But, the animals came with a male named Gilbert (Not the father), an all black bear female named Marie and 7-8 babies.

They were selling the babies for $1.00 a piece. I said I would love to take them, but I just do not have the space.

But anyways I am walking to the door, telling her on the phone someone is at the door and walk phone in hand and answer it.

What a major wonderful blessed surprise. I laughed, I must have looked amazed, I cried, we hugged a long time.

Her man looked just as happy and it was such a great a feeling. The hugs were amazing.

Many glasses of iced tea and giving her the tops I had for her. The bright red flat saddle bag. She loved everything. We both decided the giraffes on one of the blouses were so unique . We agreed they should be put in a frame on display in her crafts room. I should have taken a photo of it. (Hindsight, not enough said on that one)

They both looked so handsome and beautiful.

So happy.

I couldn’t stop talking or smiling.

Made Coffee and French Toast for breakfast.

Lazy Dog Day kayaking through the Mangroves and then back to Orlando.

I did get some great Canon Moments.

No Rattle with that Quiver

Queen Minnie is purr-fection. She’s 12 years old. 

 

She is such a curious and serious feline. Very petite.Doesn’t seem to age.

Her tail quivers like a rattlesnake without the rattle.

Cats are a mysterious kind of folk. There is more passing in their minds than we are aware of.
Sir Walter Scott

Happiness

Although a tail in motion isn’t usually a positive sign, exceptions do exist. For instance, if your fluff ball’s tail is shooting straight up into the air while it’s vibrating and shaking, she is probably feeling giddy about something. If your cat reacts this way upon seeing you, take it as a huge compliment. After all, cats never lie about their emotions — one of the greatest things about them.

Always keep looking up, or you might miss it. On the other hand occasionally look down so you don’t trip up Winking smile

Remember the rainbow, not the storm.

Your reality is how you perceive the illusion of it.

“When experiencing profound love, but unable to change for the better, losing this love can repair another.

To quote Carol Burnett, ‘You have to love someone enough to let them hate you.’

Sometimes we must leave abusers to teach them love after first letting them experience

it, if love by itself is not enough. The loss of it can be profound.”

Egret March Everyday


Egrets_March

 

Birds of a feather flock together

~Welsh Proverb

These lovelies greet me every morning when I open my front door. The three cats sit in front of my open door. They are curious yet mesmerized by them. They don’t try to eat them. Glad China’s taste for birdie appetizer was satisfied with Buttons (parakeet). Than I mistakenly gave the birds avocado. Evidently Bows (parakeet)ate the most of it and had a seizure, fluttered and died in my hands.

They are joined by seagulls, roosters, hens and chicks, and the occasional iguana.

They have a fondness for Cuban bread.

I was thinking of the vintage candy Chick-O-Sticks (Can only find them online)

Chick-O-Sticks

At the store I decided to go with sesame honey crunch and peanut butter crunch candies. The ones that don’t have so much sugar.

Sesame-Honey-Crunch

 

Peanut-Butter-Bars

Actually I was thinking of things Hempy Bug Hamster would like. Pumpkin seeds (Natural). Sunflower seeds unsalted.

Popped a Stella so I am over and out.

The visitors.

I love reminiscing. Especially when the stories are the same. Lots of laughs.

Of course as we well know each of us takes a snapshot in our minds of events, so when it doesn’t differ you know it was a good one.

Those were the days.

Thankful Blessings that we are here NOW to remember it.

Motivating Love Not Fear

There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance. We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create. Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life. ~ John Lennon

“You cannot let fear become a thief. It will steal so many precious things.” Unknown.
Painting by Edvard Munch.

Tid Bits:

There are only two emotions. Love (Happiness, Peace, Contentment, Joy)

Fear (Anger, Hate, Anxiety and Guilt).

All positive emotions come from love, all negative emotions from fear.

Hummingbirds
“It is said that Hummingbird conjures love as no other medicine does, and that Hummingbird feathers open the heart. Without an open and loving heart, you can never taste the nectar and pure bliss of life.”

The Elixir of Hope

Someone gave me a wooden plaque many years ago with this writing on it.

 

“A friend is a person who is for you always

He wants nothing from you except that you be yourself.

He is the one being with whom you can feel safe.

With him you can utter your heart, its badness and its goodness.

Like the shade of a great tree in the noonday heat is a friend.

 

A friend is an impregnable citadel of refuge in the strife of existence.

It is he that keeps alive your faith in human nature,
that makes you believe that it is a good universe.

He is the antidote to despair, the elixir of hope,
the tonic for depression…….

 

Give to him without reluctance.”
