Back & 2 Awards

I’m returning after a week that wasn’t memorable in terms of the bad weather.
Practically, all the week was with storms and raining, even till yesterday.
Of course the complete outdoor plans I’ve had for the break, were cancelled and only I’ve done a few hours of a windy-running at the beach (not precisely in a sunny & hot day)

The cold-wardrobe appeared in scene again even though is summer…
The situation was ugly with floods in several cities and alas, with persons disappeared carried by the fierce waters.
At some cities of the middle and north of Uruguay (my country), lot of people lost their homes due to the repetitions of the frequent floodings.

Due to the heavy rain, the electricity was cut in some places and for example, in Buenos Aires (capital of Argentine) the situation was worst with cars swimming in the streets in popular neighborhoods, really a chaos.

The bizarre thing is that some days ago, before the carnival week, the days were hot and nice, with temperatures till 35C (95F).
Almost of the outdoor shows were suspended for some days for the bad weather conditions.

The global warming is affecting everyplace on the Earth, changing the climate conditions and producing several extreme alterations to the total weather.


I want to thank personally to each of you who has commented to the guest post about the 4 ways you can love healthy foods you have to eat and also of the mentions of the scheduled tweets I’ve done.
I was very few online but, I’ve been tweeting a little, more @replying and sharing a few interesting articles of notes during the last week.


2 Awards

It’s my pleasure to give 2 Awards, I’ve received from Claudia of What’s Cookin’ Italian Style Cuisine and Kristy of My Little Space Thanks so much!!

The TAQ is different because it hasn’t an image that represents it. The same is the one you’ve in your image folder so the image that I’ve, now is the “stop by to say hi award” therefore I’m sharing two awards with the same pic. This task is always complicated for the hundreds of good blogs that deserve them.

Award to Food Bloggers - Foodies

Without further ado, the following “Stop by to say hi Award” and TAQ go to:

– Vanessa of Chefdruck

– Lori of Culinary Covers

– C.G. the Foodie of Uncovering Food

Please pass these 2 awards (the TAQ image is a beautiful one you can have) to your favorite 6 food bloggers.
Now, you can stop by to say hi! to your wonderful foodie-friends.

I know the frequent hurricanes are permanent danger there. The “funny” thing is that I like storms, but not in a break and having outdoor plans with the family that they were cancelled. Luckily, there wasn’t other extra problems, but lot of people are still having them for the flooding.


Ohh it’s a normal state flooding there in springs…hope the rivers will have a behaving appropriate!


It was a savvy decision the weather can change in the blink of an eye.

Hi Gerardo,

So sorry to hear about the bad weather. I know how it feels a few months ago we experienced the same catastrophe. Flood water was waist high inside our homes and some people were already living on top of their roofs. A lot of people disappeared and were presumed dead.

We just have to be strong and keep our faith in times like this.

Glad to see you back here and more blessings!


So sorry to hear that you break wasn't as you planned and sorry for people losing their houses in the flood. we had a similar disaster in some cities here in Turkey. People died, children got lost, there are so many damages, etc. Hope everything gets better soon here, there, everywhere.
My recent post Beetroot Sauce


Welcome back!!!! Congratulations on your awards.


I am sorry to hear that the weather was less than cooperative for your Carnival. I can sympathize – its been crazy here. So wet, its hard to get motivated for those runs!

Congratulations on your well deserved awards and for sharing the wealth of information by introducing me to new bloggers. You deserve all the recognition you get!
