​ Broken Dreams, Restless Heart

All I need is a sheet of paper
and something to write with,
and I can turn the world upside down…..

Don’t try to read into me too deeply
Everything as you know will eventually get
Turned upside down and into something else…

Missing the touch of you…
Thoughts of you never leave my head.
Baby together… just us two.

Something about you and
your comfortable soul,
made it easy to
call your embrace
My home.
 
I miss hearing you laugh
I’d then catch you
looking at me with a subtle smile
 
There is no greater
wilderness than a
body you wish
to ravenously
explore
 
My biggest fear is not
the loneliness i live
with, but what happens
when it becomes too
comfortable.

 

I’m just a girl who penned a life of broken dreams, but remains a hopeful heart.

UFC 188: Velasquez vs. Werdum

IMG_4370

Tonight is UFC 188 with the main card title match for the heavyweight championship

between the returning champ and my guy Cain Velasquez and the reining interim champion Fabricio Werdum.

The first time I saw Cain fight was for the heavyweight title against Brock (lol) Lesner and after the beat down Lesner took from Velasquez I was hooked on this man, and is he a force to be reckoned with. Standing 6’0 tall he maintained and held 6’4 Junior dos Santos against the fence for five rounds landing blow after blow, and a few elbows in their second match. Cain also has the best cardio in the UFC, no one can match it. Cain’s insane cardio has been a plus in being able to go five rounds and not get “gassed” while maintaining his title defenses.  

Is Cain Velasquez superhuman? Seriously after five rounds you would think a fighter got to be tired and breathing heavy, but he isn’t. 

Cain may look a little pudgy but he is incredibly strong and I envision him putting Werdum up against the fence and working his dirty boxing, then dropping Werdum for a takedown, to land some massive ground-and-pound, and use his elbows to the face. Anyone remember what Cain did to Bigfoot Silva in 2012?

Now Werdum’s I’ll admit I have only see one of his fights, so I can’t comment objectively, though I’ve read that Werdum has rapidly improved on his stand-up and could pose Cain some major problems.  Sports analyst say Werdum lacks a true KO punch and I just don’t think he can corral Cain into any dangerous Muay Thai positions.

My prediction Velasquez TKO/KO 1st Round!

We shall see soon…

Xeriscaping: 4 Things to Know for Water-Conscious Yard Desig

In many parts of the U.S.—especially in the West and Southwest— severe drought has put an emphasis on water conservation. Xeriscape (pronounced “zeri-scape”) is a water-efficient landscaping method growing in popularity as homeowners look to limit daily water usage with alternative landscaping materials and techniques. With xeriscaping, yards can become environmentally friendly and still be impeccably well designed with native plants and landscapes that require little to no water.

Here are a few things to keep in mind for planning the perfectly xeriscaped yard.

1. Pick the Right Plants

Drought-Tolerant PlantsIt may seem obvious, but it’s crucial to choose plants that don’t require a lot of water. Succulents are a
great solution that don’t need a lot of water and are easy to grow. Aeonium, a succulent shrub, is a good option for rocky areas. If you’re looking for something other than succulents, African Daisies…

What You Should Know About Medical Marijuana for Pets

What You Should Know About Medical Marijuana for Pets

What are youre thoughts on this subject???

TIME

Now that 23 states have given medical marijuana the green light (with even recreational use now allowed in another four states and Washington D.C.), growing weed has become a growing business. The newest frontier: getting Fido and Fluffy on board with the cannabis revolution.

Relax. We’re not talking about rolling doobies with your dog, or seeing “pretty colors” with your cat. Nope, these are cannabis-containing edible treats and capsules that are meant for sick or aging pets.

“The cannabis plant has many compounds in it,” Matthew J. Cote, brand manager at Auntie Dolores, a San Francisco Bay Area-based edibles manufacturer, told ABC News. Auntie Dolores launched its pet line Treatibles last year. “Most people grow cannabis for the euphoric experience of THC. But they’ve been overlooking cannabidiol—commonly known as CBD—which is non-psychoactive,” he said.

CBD, in fact, does not produce a high, and it’s true that it’s been…

Coming This Winter

Its been said that at the end of every difficult road, is a light shining bright. 

Well in the last two years ive have an unexpected illness, a home I rented that turned out to be anything but “home sweet home” and the ripple effect took its toll on my family and we ended up moving in separate directions. 

So when my daughter first mentioned that she thought she was pregnant, i immediatley thought with a huge smile.

Wow what an unexpected blessing, and I believe this baby is our light at the end of a very dark journey we all went through. 

I couldnt feel more at peace then I do right now, and i cant wait to meet my lil princess. So today i am finally allowed to share the news, that this winter the stork will deliver us a beautiful baby girl…..

 
and like a Little Mermaid there she was, wiggling around on the monitor at my daughters first official OB appt today.

and now this grandma has a slew of baby food recipes to perfect by winter and share with everyone here. 

No matter how hard the road is, never give up or you’ll miss whatever light is waiting for you at the end.

Peace~Clarissa
