Dog Day Afternoon

I will be blogging more soon. Truth be told, I haven't had much to say. But I've got Rees working on updating my website with new images. In that process I've been reviewing my inventory, realizing how cool it would be to be organized. No--I mean not pretend, fake organization, but really truly being organized. Cataloging all my work with titles, date of completion, who purchased. Yeah, right. It will never happen. At least not for me. I'm just not that way. But it is really fun to think about what it would be like to not have to search for things. It would probably save me a bunch of time.

But, as I was going through my boxes, I had some extra visitors in the studio today. I guess our walk wore them out. Ah, a dog's life!

Off to Santa Fe

Just a quick post to say I'm off to Santa Fe today. It is errand day! JuneBug is off to spend the day (and night) with her friend Simon. (How exciting!--I sure hope she behaves with Bertie, the cat.) Rees & I are meeting my college friend, Jim, for dinner. He happens to be in town for a meeting. It should be fun. Home late on Sunday! Hopefully I'll have some good pictures of old adobes, etc to work from!

El Dia de Los Muertos

We celebrated Day of the Dead this year on November 1st, so my friend Miranda could come--she's a teacher and her Tuesdays are really tough. So, Sunday night it was. Lots of yummy food--(we're still eating the leftovers!) First time to make tamales! Pickled veggies, guacamole, queso fundido, cinqo leche cake, biscochitos, 3 homemade salsas, pork & beef and rajas and crema tacos, black beans, yum! Anyway, thought I'd post a picture of the altar we made. Pictures and mementos of those who are no longer with us. It was nice. It did take me a while to pack it all back up. Why is it that putting out the decorations is always fun--you, know, like Christmas--but putting it away not so much fun?
