It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new.
But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful.
There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.

Friday, June 24, 2011


You know, I have to admit, Friday is the same as Saturday and Tuesday at my house.
We have no "work week" to get through, we just do whatever it is we need or want to do , whenever we want to do it.
This is lovely.
This can also be tiresome.
Once in a while, I remember fondly the excitement of Fridays. The anticipation of the weekends.
Now, the weekends can be a bit annoying, all those people are everywhere !
The parks are full, the shops are full and the traffic on Friday is enough to make a sane person go funny .. believe me, this is something I know about .. going funny.
They love to honk their horns here. Give them a nice traffic jam and listen to them happily honk their horns.. over and over .. add the occasional siren from an ambulance trapped in the traffic and you have the Friday Night Cacophony in BA.
Sundays are lovely, everyone walks around, lunches with the family, cafes and restaurants are packed at lunch time.
Saturday nights are the same here as everywhere in the world, Saturday Night-Date Night.
We rarely go out on weekend nights, even when we worked, it was so much nicer on week nights.
Pup is in great shape.. crossing my fingers and spinning around a few times, I hope it lasts.
The rain finally ended.
Wow, it was a lot of rain and huge thunder and lightening storms each evening and this isn't really the time of year for that .. now it seems to be gone and it is cold and crisp and the skies are back to that wonderful Buenos Aires Blue that I love.

On the agenda this weekend ? A visit to the vet tomorrow .. before and after that ?
We have to go to the bakery and refurbish our supply of scones and croissants ..maybe get some veggies..

Some ideas are :
see a horse race ?
go to Chinatown and eat lots of MSG laden food and shop?
Rent a couple of bikes and see if we live to tell the tale?
TGIF and Have a Good Safe Weekend.


  1. Hello Candice:
    We are much the same. The week days flow into the weekends with little to distinguish them on a personal level. But, somehow, Saturday and Sunday do feel very different.

    And now you have music on your blog! A Saturday special?!

  2. hello Candice,
    Your doors reminded me of an incident -
    a few years ago at our beach house, while celebrating a birthday with friends, I came across a young girl.Camera in hand, she strolled from one room to the other happily taking pictures! when I asked her who let her in,and gave permission to do that, she said: "oh I thought it would be ok" !!! she was actually a lovely intelligent girl, but I asked her to leave. -upset that someone could just asume it was in order to wander in from the street and take photographs! I forgot all about this until I read your post. have a lovely Sunday xo Colette
