Profile Information

Where I Live:
North Valley
About Me:
60-ish, mom of 2, wife of 1, in previous life was an RN, GS Leader, choir singer, PTO participant, baseball game attendant, drive across the country lover, you name it. Hiker of hills, fisher of rills, clamorer after thrills. Until I was laid low by fibromyalgia and later spinal stenosis which was severely aggravated in an auto accident. Now I'm happy if I have a day I don't have to take a pain pill or that I can actually cook a meal instead of popping frozen dinner in the oven because of the pain.
Favorite Thing(s) About Albuquerque:
The Sandias, Isotopes baseball, Barb's Place, Garduno's margaritas, no hurricanes, the seasons, my hummingbirds
What I'm Reading:
I am spending much time reading and studying the Holy Bible, which nourishes my soul.

What do you get when a fruitful crafter takes a dragon to tea?

 You get DragonFruit Medley. Have you seen the billboards with the "Try a pitaya" advertisement for a smoothie?  Pitaya is also known as dragonfruit, an exotic plant of the cactus family.When my friend and I started collaborating with our crafts, we chose dragonfruit as our name. My business is "Fruit of These Hands", and her business is "Tea With the Dragon". It seemed natural to call ourselves dragonfruit. And since we work in a variety of media, we added "Medley" to the name. We will be…See More

They've just begun collaborating, though each has had a long career as solo crafters in a variety of media. You can find them on Facebook and Etsy.One of DragonFruit Medley's goals is to hold…See More

Hi Anna,
I have several meditation students who have fibro myalgia, and they use the meditation skills to help manage their pain and general well being, so I would recommend the meditation class for you, but the yoga I teach is a little vigorous. There is a very good yoga teacher at the Presbyterian Healthplex named Christine Davis, and she does yoga for a lot of people with different health conditions, I know she does chair yoga and other options. Presbyterian's number is 823-8399. And my website if you are interested in meditation is www.duvalmeditation.com. Hope that helps and let me know if I can help further. All the best,
Michelle DuVal

Hi Anna-

I hope we can get together for crochet sometime!

I, too, adore the Gardunos' margaritas...mmmm. Let's hope they remain in business!

Hey Anna,
I had to find you right away before I had a chance to forget. We do live on the westside over by Cibola Highschool and cottonwood mall. I am sure that both mom and I will find plenty of friends don this site, thanks again for telling me about it.

Hi Anna - I often review the blogs that get posted every day by looking at the blog feed at the bottom of the DCF front page. The photo of your cat caught my eye, and the first few sentences pulled me in...

Breathe

Posted on July 9, 2009 at 1:52pm 1 Comment

For the past two days, I have been having to tell myself, "Breathe!"



In other words, my anxiety level has had me hanging from the ceiling. I'd probably drift off into the stratosphere if gravity didn't have some hold. Yesterday I found myself holding my breath in anticipation of negative emotions or reactions. Like when the doctor told me that I should not have rice or pasta in my diet. How do I react to that? By holding my breath out of shear astonishment. That started off my… Continue

There's a shrine in my clothes cabinet. Every time I slide open the door I am reminded of a dear friend. She was 15 when she died of liver failure. Her name was Bo.



I remember how she loved to play outside, sitting under a bush waiting for a bird. The countless number of gifts she laid at our feet was remarkably diverse: a variety of lizards, mice, birds, bunnies, pocket gophers, even a roadrunner. She was a master hunter. We had a friend… Continue
