Good Bye to a Great Guy

Good Bye Fluffy

Great Fluffy Guy

 

Yesterday was a hard day. It was time to take difficult decisions. We had a family meeting and we all agreed we did not wanted Fluffy to suffer anymore.

Ayer fué un dia muy penoso. Era hora de tomar una decisión muy difícil. Tuvimos una reunión familiar y todos acordamos en que no queríamos que Fluffy sufriera más.

Fluffy our cat was with us for over nine years, we had the fortune to become his family after a visit to SPCA. It was love at first sight and it was love ever since. His blue eyes, soft fluffy hair and great big paws were there to embrace a family and we were the lucky ones.

Fluffy, nuestro gato estuvo con nosotros por más de nueve años, fuimos afortunados en convertirnos en su familia después de hacer una visita al SPCA (Refujio para animalitos). Fué amor a primera vista y continuó así desde ese momento. Sus ojos azules, suave pelo y enormes patas estaban listos para adoptar una familia y nosotros corrimos con suerte de haber sido elegidos.

His little gentleman behavior, did not get in the way when it was the time to play as a mom for other kittens we sheltered for a while. He was the best male-mom ever!

Su comportamiento de pequeño caballero, no se interpuso en el camino cuando era el momento de jugar el papel de una madre para los gatitos  protegidos por nosotros por un tiempo. Era el mejor hombre-madre !

As I write these words, I feel a special warmth in my heart, I think it must be all the good memories of him.

Al escribir estas palabras, siento un calor especial en mi corazón, creo que debe ser todos los buenos recuerdos de él.

He was patience, love, affection and great good looking. There was nothing else we could ever wished for.

Fue paciencia, amor, afecto y de muy buen parecido. No había nada más que podríamos desear.

A few days ago he started to suffer from seizures, they were not often but lately they got bad and affected his brain. He had no peace.

Hace unos días empezó a sufrir convulsiones, no eran a menudo, pero últimamente se empeoraron y se afectó su cerebro. No tenía paz.

I think the same illness made him feel wanting to move away from it and he kept under a continuous walking.

Creo que la misma enfermedad le hizo sentir deseo de alejarse de ella y se mantuvo bajo un caminar continuo.

The night before last was very sad seeing how difficult for him was staying in the same place, he could not understand what was wrong. The vet explained to us that he has seen this behavior with many dogs and cats and there is not much to do about it. -”There are pills you could force him to take but he won’t be the same”- he said. Our hearts were broken but my daughter, husband and I wanted the best for Fluffy and having a better place to go without any suffer is what we decided.

Antenoche fue muy triste ver lo difícil que para él era mantenerse en el mismo lugar, no podía el entender lo que estaba pasando. El veterinario nos explicó que ha visto este comportamiento con perros y gatos y no hay mucho que hacer al respecto. – “Hay píldoras que podrían obligarlo y forzarlo a tragar, pero él no será el mismo y sufrirá” – dijo. Nuestros corazones se rompieron, pero mi hija, esposo y yo quisimos lo mejor para Fluffy  y tener un mejor lugar a donde ir sin ningún tipo de sufrimiento es lo que decidimos.

I’m sure that if there is a special heaven for these great beings, he will be there waiting for us at the edge of a swimming pool as he used to, placing the tip of his big paw inside of it and then he will crawl under our bed sheets with us with his laud purring welcoming us back.

Estoy segura de que si hay un cielo especial para estos grandes seres, nos va a esperar en el borde de una piscina como solía, colocando la punta de una de sus patas grandes dentro de la misma y se colará por debajo de las sábanas de nuestras camas con nosotros ronroneando fuertemente a darnos la bienvenida.

Fluffy now lies beneath the beautiful shade of a huge tree on our property as when he used to taking long naps.

Fluffy ahora yace bajo la hermosa sombra de un enorme árbol en nuestra porpiedad como cuando solia tomar sus siestas prolongadas.

Fluffy, you will always live in our hearts!

Fluffy, siempre vivirás en nuestros corazones!

Welcome to the family dear Sophie – Bienvenida a la Familia pequeña Sophie

I’ve been away for quite a while, however I have been working on a very nice project.

He estado retirada por algún tiempo, sin embargo, he estado trabajando en un hermoso proyecto.

I made a very special present for my dear new-born niece Sophie. I’m sure she will enjoy the colors and of course I made it thinking about a very precious little baby part of our family.

Hice éste colgante para la cuna de mi nueva sobrinita Sophie. Estoy segura que le encantarán los colores y por supuesto lo hice pensando en esta preciosa pequeña bebe ahora parte de nuestra familia.

 

This is the complete crib mobile that I finished:

Este es el colgante completo una vez terminado:

The Cradle Mobile

Amigurumi Hand-made crib mobile

I do not have a crib so, I hanged it in the backyard to take a full length photo.

No tengo una cuna, asi que lo colgue en el patio de la casa para la toma completa.

These are the details:

Estos son los detalles:

 

Yellow Bird – Pajarita Amarilla

This little bird reminds me of an aunt, so I called it like her. She is cute!

Este pequeño pajarito me recuerda a una tia, asi que lo llamé como ella. Esta bello!

Notice the fabric used in the little bird’s tail. Isn’t it nice?

Notar la tela que utilicé en la parte de la cola del pajarito. No es bello?

 

This is the white girl bunny – Esta es la conejita blanca.

I love the little pom pom tail. I combined both colors white and pink to make it colorful.

Me encanta el pom pom de colita. Combiné ambos colores blanco y rosa para hacerla mas colorida.

 

Pink sweet elephant – Elefante rosa tierno

This pink yarn was just the perfect color  for the fabric that I used on the mobile.

Este estambre rosa es esactamente el color de la tela utilizada en el colgante.

Elephant Tail

Elephant special Tail

I had to come up with a very special tail for the pretty elephant.

TenÍa que hacerle una colita muy especial a la elefantita.

 

White lamb – Borreguito blanco

Little Lamb

I love the curly hair on this little lamb.

Me gustó cómo se ve el pelo rizado del lindo borreguito.

I think the tail in the little lamb is really special too.

Creo que la colita en el borreguito es muy especial también.

This is a very funny little fellow:

Este es un amiguito muy gracioso:

Introducing the Lion

The little lion was the most difficult to create since has lots of fluffy hair. But I think it looks cute as well.

El pequeño león fué el de mayor dificultad para realizar puesto que tiene mucho cabello esponjado. Pero quedé muy satisfecha con el resultado.

 

Mobile’s Top

Fabric

Mobile’s Top

This is 100 % cotton fabric and I used the same palette for my little stuffed animals. I had it also embellished with little crocheted stars to inspire sweet dreams.

El colgante está confeccionado con tela 100% algodon. Aprobeché la misma paleta de la tela para tejer los animalitos. También,  por último adorné con estrellitas tejidas a crochet para inspirar hermosos sueños.

Stars

Dreamy stars

Ribbons and stars are topping this cute little mobile.

Listones y estrellas forman parte superior de este bonito colgante.

Thinking about a new family member gave me the inspiration to create something very special for her.

Pensando en una nueva integrante familiar me inspirá para crear algo tan especial para ella.

Welcome to the family dear Sophie . . .

Bienvenida a la familia querida Sophie . . .

Mother’s Month / Mes de las Madres

Tengo una fotografía que es muy especial para mí, pues se trata de mi abue. Esta señora emprendedora, que nos impulsó, nos influenció y nos apoyó en la mayoría de nuestros cambios.

Recuerdo uno de mis primos diciendo: “Mi abuela fué una mujer revolucionaria e innovadora pues ha cambiado muchas cosas a su alrededor”

He aqui pues su imagen tierna y encantadora.

Para mi abue con amor . . .

With love to my grandma . . . .

Wedding Day

Finally, the photography- wedding day was last Sunday and everything went very good. I was very different to shot this event because I did not know that I had to compete with other 2 photographers and 2 video camera guys that showed -up last minute since apparently that’s what they do as freelance photographers. Later these photographers tried to sell their photos at the wedding reception. It was very annoying because I tried to take photos and one guy was always on my way. :(

However, I did my best and I’m pretty sure that the Bride and Groom notice the crowded day we all had.

This is one of the photos at the mass ceremony

The lady that gave us the photography job was very pleased with the photos and she will recommend us.

Yesterday we had a big music-group photo session and it was very exciting. There were 18 guys who were very playful and fun to work with. This was a good experience for controlling big group photos. Will post a photo soon.

Como todos sabemos, este dia 22 de Abril es el dia de Nuestra madre Tierra.

I’m booked for a wedding photography . . . Yayyyyy!

Yes!

Last night, I received a phone call . . . my friend and student on the other side of the line asking me if I would like to take some photos of a wedding ceremony in the local main Cathedral. My first feeling? . . .  fear!  …but then the joy kicked in, and I accepted. The event will take place in 15 days approx (I will get more details from her today Wednesday).

For now, I’ll have to get acquainted with the church, where is the best place to take the photos from?, test my camera, so on and so forth.

This is exciting but, also scary, because I will have to be inside of the church trying to take pictures of things that won’t ever be repeated! I hope that the priest will be cool with everything because from what I’ve heard some of the local-priests can be very uptight about the photography service and my only concern is to catch the great moments that the couple in love will (hopefully) always cherish.

I’ve taken weddings before, but  they were either after church or before the ceremony, so this is a big step for me, mind you, but I’m willing to do my best.

Any experiences or tips are very welcome . . .
