Home is Good....The Path to my Studio, CocoNut and the Heavenly Blue

Finally, upon my return I am enjoying the fruit of my planting: this morning glory in all its...glory.
CocoNut is happy and enjoying the sweet afternoon air.
So happy to see my studio


Just a fond hello to everybody...bisous to others.
It is 8:56am and I am busy emptying suitcases, sorting things, admiring goodies brought back from France...will post later today

Bon Voyage

Diablo insists on being in the traveling party to France....at any cost!
So last post until " la ville Lumiere" where we will arrive Saturday morning. Don't even know whether I will have the time...
Love to all!

Real and Fake Bugs

2 little brooches received for my birthday (almost 2 months ago) and a new , no, not any more bracelet given by my sweetie. Can you see that he really knows me?
Right above, look carefully at those...leaves!

I think that CocoNut has some chameleon blood......she is sitting by a rock and believes that she is invisible....

Machines on Rio Grande Boulevard

It is a real mess....sometimes we can't get out of our lane.
It is quite an adventure every day. What are they doing in the village of Los Ranchos right now? Why all these monster machines? They are putting city sewer lines....all of us here in the village had septic tanks....kind of backward no? It was peaceful though but ours failed awhile ago so we will be glad when we can take long showers again!

New Papers

I am ever so ...............SLOW

More CocoNut

I spent way too much time taking a multitude of pictures of our darling petite CocoNut today: she actually loved it and was quite happy cooperating!

Of Chicken Dish, Exercise and a Shaved CocoNut

What a title, but here it is, altogether in one post for fun: First the chicken dish: Chicken legs with tomatoes and black olives...quick and delicious Second I need to exercise to get to eat what's in my plate, picture courtesy of hubby Steve Third our new cat CocoNut(like "new" Tide or "new" whatever) shaved, thanks to the skillful hands of my son David, with my assistance....we were in the midst of cat hair, in the eyes, around our nose, mouth, etc...itching, miserable but it is almost done. She had so many tangles and knots that this was the only thing to do, contrary to what she told us. We think she is very sexy like this.

The Race

Immediately above, our friend Sergio arriving at the finish line with a super wonderful time of 3:33.
Then my young French friend Marion who did an amazing time of 3:28 and made me so proud....as I was yelling "go Marion" and "vive la France". These two ran the New Mexico Marathon! I do not understand what this really means......ouch..ouch...ouch
Finally my very own darling champion/hubby finishing his 5k...2nd in his age group. Check his feet, he is airborne!
I am very proud of him!
