Look what happened now...
Ready, Set, Jet!
Tony Hillerman was the former president of the Mystery Writers of America for a reason.. he writes a good story. I effortlessly fell into this mystery and learned more about the Navajos people and the high desert life of New Mexico. Looking forward to reading the entire inspired series of books.
My Last Minute Thoughts:
How are things?
Super busy here with work and life...I needed a break so we took a quick trip to the Isleta Casino in Albuquerque. It's back to business as usual now. #YEAH!
It was really great to get out, but now I'm back at work. (Insert sad face)
But it's okay, I have several BIG trips coming up this summer so I don't mind.
Stay tuned for more recipes, and travel adventures.
Hope your week is going good! The weather has been very good lately so I've been out exploring! I wanted to learn more about the Acequias (Irrigation ditches) that are in my area. Some of these ditches date back 400 years! The Spanish built these to irritate what is now souther Colorado to central New Mexico. Some have been redone and others look very much like they did when they were first built. I created a short video here if you want to check one out.
In an area where it almost NEVER rains seeing water flowing seems almost unbelievable. Besides all the history associated with the water ditches there are also politics as the state grows and changes. You can google if you want to know more, I don't feel qualified to weight in on it.
I have another out of state trip planned in two weeks so I need to get packing..
How are things?
Hope all is well in your world. I had business in Roswell at the end of April so we made a quick trip. There was no "touristing" this time, as it was a short visit.
Roswell actually have a lot to see. From the lake to the alien tours, it a nice place to visit.
+ I really do love the kookiness of the city. They do embrace the alien theme and celebrate it!
Most of the hotels are clustered together -- I looked at vacation rentals but it was a last minute trip and they were all booked up.
Hope you are well, warm and enjoying yourself. It finally decided to become winter here. So I've had spotty net and lots of cozy evening by the fire. I really enjoy the cold, especially if I don't have to go anywhere, lol.
We had company last month and I cooked liked a mad woman, I have started a 'Veganary Food" post which should be up by late July, LOL! No, really I have a few new recipes I want to share with you and cooking tips, but work has been so busy. Which, I am thankful for. But its keeping me very busy and then when I'm done I really don't feel like blowing. (Or doing much of anything.)
But with the travel restrictions easing up, it looks like we will be traveling again soon and I am so excited!
But in the meantime I'm going to enjoy winter here with my warm socks and hot tea.
But really, Brrr ❄️ ☕️ 📚
We have another snow storm expected next week.
So Spring will be late this year. I have the urge to go purchase 9,000 + plants but am holding off till I know my schedule. I hate the idea of purchasing a horde of plants and then leaving for a month.
The secret ingredient in this soup is APPLES.
Back in September, we went apple picking. It was so much fun! I made a short video here:
Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 40 minutes
3 c. butternut squash, cubed
3 large firm apples, cubed
1 medium red onion, chopped
1 T. fresh ginger, minced
1½ t. ground cinnamon
½ t. ground nutmeg
½ t. ground cloves
½ t. allspice
2 T. coconut oil, melted
Sea salt and black pepper, to taste
4-5 c. vegetable broth, preferably organic, divided
I hope you are having a fantastic week, but HOW IS IT DECEMBER already? I never put up the Halloween decorations so technically it's still September at my casa. Well, except for the cold weather....
I've been trying to clear all my old book reviews, old travel posts, recipes, and sorting pictures for blog posts this week. (So far I found a few really witty half-finished posts from 2018, LOL!)
Regardless, you can expect a blast of book reviews and other nonsense this month, dear reader. So stay tuned.
Thank you for hanging out...
How is it already November??
September and October flew by because life was so busy!
We took a road trip to Roswell, New Mexico, then returned home, repacked, and took a month-long road trip to Texas. #Yeah It was great to be able to travel again!
We also went apple picking, (worked of course), made a couple of videos, baked, met up with old friends, and chilled at the river and the lake. Oh! And there was also a hurricane hitting Texas while we were there and we had to nix the beach part of the trip.
"More than 100,000 Texas electricity customers without power after Nicholas. Restoring it to everyone could take days." Read about it here.
But all-in-all it was a nice adventure! If you missed those short posts I have listed them below.
