Today I would like to ask all of you to send good vibes and prayers to the people of Costa Rica as they are facing difficult times. Due to the influence of hurricane Tomas the country has seen non-stop rain for days which has caused floods and mud slides all over the country killing many people and leaving thousands without a place to to live.

coffee bean or as Costarricans call it "Gano de Oro" (Golden Grain)
On a lighter note, I am very happy the midterm elections are over so now the are no more "attack adds" on TV which were absolutely unnecessary... I wish politician would've used that money to help the battered US economy, don't you think?
Here are this week's links:
Today I will be guest posting at Jeniffer Fabulous' post called I Know, Right?... come over and check it out.

The people of Costa Rica will definitely be in my prayers. And I'm glad to see the negative ads off tv too. Perhaps on to more positive things now?ReplyDelete

All these natural disasters are terrible! Praying for our brothers and sisters in Costa Rica!ReplyDelete
BTW - Let me know if you need help with the button! I can probably easily shrink your header into a button, if that's what you want. Let me know :)
I didn't know about the hurricane in Costa Rica. Thanks for letting us know. I shall say a prayer for them tonight.ReplyDelete
oh i agree. those political ads were killing me.ReplyDelete
i was in costa rica last year around this time - what a beautiful country. in my prayers.ReplyDelete

Thinking of the people in Costa Rica and thank you for this wonderful reminder. I so agree with you on the use of politicians' money! Thanks for the lovely links and hope you have a great weekend!ReplyDelete
I was watching the news while drinking my coffee and they were talking about the hurricane!ReplyDelete
Can't get enough of the Lanvin for H&M pics! I also like the winter dressing link :)ReplyDelete
Definitely thinking of Haiti. How much more can they take? And yes I agree with you about being happy that those nasty ads are gone. I couldn't wait for the election to be over.ReplyDelete
Have a great weekend, honey! Off to check off your fab links right now :)xoxo
Definitely we should all say a prayer for them! Have a wonderful weekend!ReplyDelete
It turns out my mother started calling state level politicians to complain about their smear campaigns this year-how I adore her gumption!ReplyDelete
So glad you put a spotlight on the people of Costa Rica-I've been surprised by how scant news coverage of Hurricane Thomas seems to be!
Definitely sending good thoughts their way!ReplyDelete
i'm definitely over the attack ads too.ReplyDelete
did you realize all the wind and stuff down here? i think we have a cold front in south florida--yay!
Thanks for spreading good thoughts to Costa Rica.ReplyDelete
It's hard to know what is happening with all the election/post-election craziness but yes ... so happy those ads are gone!
So sad about Costa Rica! I have a special place in my heart for Costa Rica because I lived with a family there for a month for an "exchange program" when I was in high school. Such a beautiful country...ReplyDelete
Crazy about that governor candidate in CALI who spent over $100 million on her own campaign. Sad to think how much good that could've done elsewhere..ReplyDelete
Wow, $100 million on a campaign?!?! That is ridiculous!!!ReplyDelete
i have a friend living in costa rica right now, i hope shes ok :SReplyDelete
such a tragic event. sending prayers and wishes to the people of costa rica. yep, so glad the ads are no longer airing...i voted and it's a done deal. now it's time for the elected politicians to follow throughReplyDelete
i had no idea about the flooding in cr! i lived there in 2003 and it holds a very special place in my heart.ReplyDelete
also the link "from boys to husbands" was fascinating. so many thanks for sharing.
I've been thinking about the Costa Ricans too and they are most certainly in my prayers! The pic of the coffee plant fruit reminded me of my youth growing up in Jamaica. We grew our own coffee and my grandmother would use what is referred to as a mortar to grind the beans... Happy weekend to you!ReplyDelete
Keeping them in my thoughts!ReplyDelete
Definitely keeping the people of Costa Rica in my thoughts and prayers. Lovely weekend links, thanks!ReplyDelete
Have a wonderful day!ReplyDelete
I hate the disasters that have been occurring, for the pain that those who live there must endure. On a lighter note, I cannot wait to visit these links.ReplyDelete
Hope your weekend was lovely,
Sending prayers and strength to the people of CRReplyDelete
Have a great week!
Great post about remembering to care. Thank you!ReplyDelete
Have a lovely evening!
I can't imagine what those people are going through. You have a good heart for posting this.ReplyDelete
I hope that the victims in all places affected by Tomas will come out o.k....ReplyDelete
And yes, the amount of money spent on elections is indecent - here in California we're continuously being told about the $140 million - the most ever - spent by the candidate that lost the governor's election! They could use that for our economy, or even for Haiti or Costa Rica...
