Posted in : General on by : admin

Good morning, Oaxaca! We had an interesting start to today: a 6.4 magnitude earthquake in Veracruz made it to us this morning, at 5:46 AM. So much for setting the alarm for 6:00. I guess now I know why I see so many of these: Yup, those are my stylishly clad feet in that photo.

As I sit here and write this post, I am so thankful that I am as lucky as this. And by this, I mean writing a blog post while looking at this: I had the opportunity to take a short get-away with some friends. A get-away from my current work project, my quilting, my cooking

Comments : 3 Posted in : General on by : admin

Happy New Year!  I hope everyone has recovered from the revelry of last night and is ready to take on 2013!
