T stands for fun

Hello My T.Friends!

It's Carnival here:


we are having fun, pretending there's no epidemic here caused by Zica virus. Yes, my friends, AN EPIDEMIC. If you are pregnant and planned to visit Brazil, you'd better stay at home. You can read more here.

Nobody in my family has been infected up to know. Maybe we are lucky. We are having fun too.
My sister and niece. My sister is eleven years younger than me.
My niece is like a daughter. 
Do you remember the small scrapbook album? It's for her .

 My daughter and her boyfriend.
My kids. I see them as my girls.
 It's been very stuffy and hot so no coffee for me.Thanks. Only water, please.
 You might be wondering why I am not having fun.Well I like to relax during Carnival and is there anything more relaxing and therapeutic than journaling?

Hope you have a magical week!
Last Tuesday I didn't share anything because I started work and I was worn out. I need some time to readapt again but I hope not miss any Tuesday from now on.


Linking up with T stands for Tuesday

  1. Karla, the Zika virus has been all over the news here. It's the worst possible time for Brazil to be the epicenter of this disaster they still know so little about. I hope they get it figured out so the games can go forward and no athlete will have to choose between his/her health and his/her desire to compete.

    Your sister and niece look like they are having fun, and so does your daughter.

    BUT, Carnival is truly the topic of the day. Fat Tuesday and the fun that goes along with the parades and storytelling have always fascinated me. I would love to put Carnival in Brazil on my bucket list, because I've been to Carnival in New Orleans (in the US).

    Thanks for sharing the fun outfits, the photos of Carnival, and your journal page while we drank that bottled water for T this (soon to be) Tuesday.

  2. Just look at all those joyful faces!! Thank you dear Karla for sharing your beautiful family and that super fun looking celebration. My gosh-your sister and her daughter look like sisters-great genes! Enjoy carnivale and a happy T day too.

  3. Happy Carnival! It looks like soooo much fun! I am glad you shared those photos! And we hear all about the Zica virus here too, trying to inform people about traveling, and even how it could come to parts of the US. Have a great celebration and Happy T Day!

  4. So nice that you are back for T dear Karla.
