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.

New Mexico pride shines through like a lone sun ray on a blossoming yucca. Coyotes sing ancient songs to dream catchers hanging in adobe window frames. Sheets drying in the wind dance with tumble weeds on the mesa. Ice cream truck melodies mingle with the rich aroma of green chile roasting over a charcoal grill. Children laughing to the beat of a lazy Sunday afternoon suck frozen otter pops with multi colored lips.
A dry summer breeze caresses the glistening chrome rims of a dropped impala… Continue

I am not going to turn out to be one of those food cultist that thinks gluten is evil, everything in moderation (I did not get on the Adkins circus wagon either) no, I just want to find some nice squishy-fluffy bread. I was raised at sea level and the only thing I have not learned to live without quite happily is bread that has a delicate crumb and find texture . . . ahh baked goods, staff of life. I can't seem to make anything but a 'hearty' loaf up here. Someplace in our fair city there must… Continue

M.P.s and the hot air balloons
Ballooning is a big sport in Albuquerque and each year in October, hundreds of balloonists come to town for the International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta. Every morning, for two weeks, they take to the skies and sail where the wind takes them. One time, an errant balloon landed inside the military reservation. The M.P.s met them. The pilots were taken in, questioned, and detained until the army was convinced the balloonists weren't spies.

May 7, 2008. It's 6:30AM and I'm going to remember my sock liners today. I make some tea, put on my boots and head toward the foothills. I'd planned on visiting Piedra Lisa Canyon, but then Duke City Fit
did a good write-up on it. Today I'm going back to the Embudo Canyon trailhead, but hiking north into a wash, then up.…
