El Corazón y el Puñal

I looked for it in the usual places,
were it goes for rest,
were it goes for fun,
even were it tends to hide.


It took me a while to find out
that I had lost it.

At the same time
it's bigger than ever,
now that it knew unconditionally.

I'm still not sure if I lose it or missed it.
Maybe it was too heavy.
too damaged.
too sore.

The worst part is wanting to get it back,
and at the same time doubt it,
because it hurts just to think of putting it back were it belongs.

So I'll stay, very quiet, and wait, and hope,
very hard,
that nothing changes.



I've been struggling with the house almost since we arrived, longing for the first few days at my father´s house (when we first arrive to Costa Rica) or in this house, or the last in Mexico, with very few things.

Many who we are in the journey of parenting with awareness of our environmental impact, are in this search-path of having less, in relation to this I tell you that I am participating in a reading group of Simplicity Parenting: Using the Extraordinary Power of Less to Raise Calmer, Happier, and More Secure Kids, hosted by Rachel on 
Clean. blog, you can participate even without reading the book.


Today I wanted to photograph our breakfast, I have speak before about this, I said that taking pictures of your breakfast has to be a sign of happiness and well being.
Seeing the picture I noticed something that I like, it's that at least I'm not ashamed to background, as it has been for a long time, something that keept me from inviting people over my room still needs a lot of work, besides the missing mop (my least favorite activity in the world), but the feeling of well being is indomitable, I can finally breathe.


I finished last night around 4 am, I also found the battery charger that allows me to get my camera to photograph my world (and finally make the final video on the Ottobre wool diaper cover tutorial series I'm hosting at the Spanish version of the blog).
I also did an activity that had promised to Itzcóatl for days, the Easter egg hunt, something he had never done (and had no much idea of), I liked to draw the map, but would I didn't want to give a very high dose of sugar, so I just hid 5 candy eggs and included a little tin egg I had bought some time ago but had not given him (it's this one Fried Egg - by HABA).

I'm enjoying Easter at home and I hope to get to work on the garden beds that I have not prepared, What about you?
I hope you enjoy and relax, thanks for stopping by here and comment, it makes my day.

Mail goodness

I was not sure if this was going to make it. but it did and I'm so happy.


It's a small order from Horizon Herbs, which I found via farmmama (my new favorite blog), I found very interesting that they would have a special kit of seed for dyeing plants.

Maíz azul

I plant them last night, and I'm super excited. I got some blue corn, which I used to eat when living in Mexico, purple onion, Epazote, which is great to get rid of parasites and also for good taste on beans; some medicinal as flax seed, yarrow and comfrey, and some that may not be in their best environment, but maybe will grow, as asparagus and tea tree.


I also start a mini quilt for a nephew baby who's shower is in two weeks.



Quick recipe with garbanzo or chick peas
