A Good Burque Friday

Hola Fixers! It has been a while, sí? I’m now blogging as Barelas Babe, Ph.D, which has a nifty little ring to it, don'cha think? But no worries, this Bareleña isn’t going to get too big for her pantalones (or should that…

The Annual Elm Seed Festival

I know that not every neighborhood in Albuquerque has elm trees, but in the Near North Valley and for miles around us, they are everywhere. In the spring these trees present trillions of seeds on their branches before a single leaf bud pops out. With our recent weather pattern - windy, windier and windiest - down they come and the Annual Elm Seed Festival of Albuquerque has begun.



The seeds usually turn a straw color and then fall like… Continue

Time to Celebrate Persian New Year!

No Rooz is almost here! That's Persian New Year, which falls on the first day of spring (technically, the exact moment of the vernal equinox; this year, it's March 21 at 5:44am). I grew up within a sizable Iranian community in Milwaukee, and this was the social event of the year, hands down. There would be one or more huge parties with everyone dressed to the nines (and those Iranian ladies can get fancy, let me tell you), tons of food,… Continue

Spring is Already Springing in Albuquerque

Over on twitter,@jfleck is musing about signs of Spring in ABQ. He notes that "wintering birds are heading north," and "Bulby things coming up in my yard."



I'm noticing Spring all around, and last night I dreamed that I saw a hummingbird. (That's wishful thinking).



Here's what I've actually seen:



  • My forsythia is blooming. Started over a week ago,…

The Most Peculiar Dream I Think I've Ever Had





It's 3am, and I just had one of the strangest dreams of my life. I need to take this down before I forget it.



I was in the home of DCF's own Jason and Spring, which in this dream had a garage that opened directly onto the kitchen instead of the driveway. In this garage was a grand piano, on which the two bloggers kept a framed picture of me of which they spoke endlessly ("Oh, we had dinner by the piano last night, right next to your picture!"). I mean,… Continue

Frisbee and fair weather; blogging to stay organized; random thoughts

So I started the Frisbee Lovin Fixers group with full intent of getting out there on Sunday afternoons to play some Frisbee. Well, I didn't get out of the house to do any such thing yesterday. I do intend to making it a habit though, so let's try it again. I'm feeling so much pressure about time lately, but I know the only way to keep a sane grasp on reality is to get out there and work some of that stress off. Investing the hour or two will definitely help in the long run. So, let's give it a… Continue

Clematis


I love spring and the flowers it brings. This is a Clematis my sister gave me after I admired her plant. I bring it indoors during the winter to keep it from freezing and it rewards the pampering with big beautiful blue blooms in early spring.

Enjoy and Happy Spring!

Painted Gardens

So my friend and I are starting a business - finally doing what we love! We are a painting (mostly interior) and gardening (got weeds?) venture. We are also handy with a variety of things (dry wall repair, cleaning, and soon to be plastering). But our main focus is painting and gardening. Spring clean-up/weeding/raking/pruning/planting - tending the earth. And painting - we love to paint! We are also mosaic savvy and will be learning more about tile installation.



We are honest,… Continue
