Last night as I was reading blogs and admiring everyone’s abilities, creativity, and willingness, I reflected on the fact that lately I haven’t been showing and telling much on my blog.
In fact, I may realize at 10:00 pm that tomorrow is a Tuesday meme, and I’ve missed it again.
Instead I am sharing what’s on my mind and heart, and I am grateful for readers, both real and imagined, who periodically travel along with me.
Have you ever smelled orange blossoms on an orange tree? The fragrance is heavenly. When my husband and I moved to the Rio Grande Valley 36 years ago, I was amazed at the smell. It is a real blessing.
Over the weekend, my husband and I went to an outdoor restaurant called El Charco. We sat under a jalapa, ate aguacate (guacamole), listened to a one man band who sang Charlie Rich songs, and watched winter tourists dance.
Just a note: when you order guacamole at a restaurant, never , ever , ever pronounce the g. It is soft and is pronounced wa-ca-mo-le.
Instead of chips, we had totopos. Totopos are freshly fried, home made corn tortillas- slightly salted and sometimes dusted with a paprika like spice.
On Sunday, my daughter and I moved into our small booth at the antique mall. We washed, dried, inventoried and priced out on the patio in the sunshine.
I need to not shop at the antique mall!
And finally, this beautiful Monday, my trees are being trimmed.
I really have simple needs. When I look out in my backyard and see a big trailer being filled with limbs, brush, and tree stumps, I can hardly stand it.
I hope you are having a wonderful week. I think I’ll start a no pressure meme simply titled-
What are you doing/thinking today?
PS: Play-off basketball game tonight at the local university at 7:00 pm CST.
You know where I’ll be.
