Dia de los Muertos

We flew to México City at the end of October for a couple of weeks, and it was our good luck to be there for El Dia de los Muertos!  What fun we had! In my previous post I shared a few pictures from one of the parades.  In the album below you will see pictures from our day in Coyoacán, our shopping for flowers and candles for our home altar as well as taking Consuelo out for La Noche...

A weekend in CDMX

We are so lucky to have family close by – an hour and a half by plane in México City.  On the spur of the moment we made arrangements to visit, arriving on Friday and leaving on Monday.  Why not?

At the top of the post are some photos taken at my cousin’s house in Lacey. His garden is beautiful, as you can see. He and I had...

I’m heading North of the Border

Where does the time go, it is moving along way too fast. Paul is staying home this year to take care of the house and the dogs, so I’m off on my own. It’s always wonderful to see the family, to hang...
