I'm always changing my mind about what counts as "my favorite bike ride in Albuquerque," but I always return to the Junkyard Loop. Down in Albuquerque's South Valley, it takes you past the city's sewage treatment plant, a bit of infrastructure not to be missed if only for its pedestrian grandeur. It gives you a sense of the scale of our poop, a fact… Continue

From June 1st to June 12th I will have my second house sitting job. This is a person I have known for a couple years now and we both mourned the loss of Pumpkin, the big cat with lots of love! Unfortunately, Pumpkin passed away in December a couple weeks before Christmas and she will be dearly missed. She is survived by a UNM professor and an APS Social Worker who have since then adopted their daughter's and sister's cats. They have a beautiful place up in the mountains off of Tramway and have… Continue

Alright! With summer here so is my primary source of summer income! Beginning May 26th and continuing through June 1st I will be House Sitting out in Los Lunas. I get to take care of four wonderful dogs, two cats, and two horses! This is a great place for me to be because it is like a vacation from my family and time to think about what I'm going to do. It also gives me the chance to catch up on some reading and to get some scholarship writing done!

I moved to Albuquerque over seven months ago. My first week living here happened to be the week of Balloon Fiesta
. I was in awe. I had never seen anything like the Burque, nor felt anything like that feeling of awe and vastness that came over me my first morning of sunrise and balloons as far as the eye could see. One of my coworkers told me one day that Albuquerque was one of the top ten photographed… Continue

On Saturday I was having an idyllic day. It was just great. My husband works on Sunday so we did Mom day on Saturday -Breakfast in bed and then an hour and a half to read in bed with out interruption.
We did errands without anyone falling apart.
So later in the day when we realized that we needed garlic, barbeque sauce and some chicken I decided to go to Lowe's. Many of us Downtown have mixed feelings about the Lowe's; the quality of produce varies wildly, the selection is small and… Continue

I decided to schlep the kids out to the zoo yesterday because there was a Mother's Day symphony going on. Sadly, my kids are not as into classical music so I didn't get to hear much of it (though I did get to see the child prodigy pianist - how lovely that was!), but honestly I had a great time with my children going all over the zoo. The place was more packed than I had ever seen it, so that meant we had to park several blocks away. It turned out to be a good thing, because on foot is a great… Continue

We are going to be working on a mock pin up calendar for the company that i run (which is a junk removal service aptly named Junk Pros). This is a volunteer effort so if you are interested please contact me. I want to use this as a gift for my partners who were obviously drunk when they hired me and i want to use this as a consoling slap in the face. It will be a pin up style shoot focusing on a rockabilly, vinatge style. You will get photos for your portfolio and a printed calendar. If they do… Continue

Mom always told me about the importance of a good reputation and that people judge you by your friends. She’d dish out the “lay down with dogs, wake up with fleas” speech and seemed too concerned with who we were hanging out with.
