Christmas Cards

Buen Dia everyone!
Just want to show you how the fireplace is coming along. This is the little kiva Bill is building in the room that will be the main bedroom. Looking pretty good, huh?
As I write Bill and Umberto are ripping the roof off of that room.
I also want to say that every day I go to the Palacio and our mailbox, and there have been 2 or 3 Christmas cards in the box every day!
Then I walk over to the Plaza and sit on one of the green iron benches and open them. Thanks to everyone who has sent a card!

But, now, on a sad note, I broke my favorite coffee cup...a Seattle Best Coffee cup.......plain white with the SBC logo on it. Back when Starbucks bought SBC a lady from corporate came out to our little store and brought us some SBC souvenirs. I had it sitting on the table, Cookies jumped up and the cup fell off.......did I say it was my favorite?

On an even sadder and more serious note, (and I am really upset about this), I accidentally threw away my steam wand cover for my Starbucks Venezia espresso machine. So I am unable to steam milk and make a hot latte. I can't believe I threw it out in the trash. I know I was using a paper towel to clean the portafilter and I had the steam wand cover in my left hand and then, I threw away the paper towel. Did I say how upset I am over this?

So, if you happen to be walking down the street and you look down just as you are about to cross the street at the corner to go to your favorite cafe and wow! there on the ground is a Starbucks Venezia steam wand cover, please! Pick it up and send it to me!

Or if you are doing some weekend shopping at Value Village, hoping to get some fun knick knacks for Valentine's Day and you wander over to the cup area and there it is! A white SBC mug with the SBC logo in red, please! Pick it up and send it to me!
Or you can just send me a christmas card instead......................

"... the cup fell off"
Congratulations you are quickly getting into the Mexican culture. For some reason in Mexico objects or things generate a power of their own. for example we got up late and din't get to the bus on time. We tend to say; me dejo el camion. We do not take the responsibility for getting up late and missing the bus, it is our fault. Therefore, the cup fell, you didn't do anything to drop it or cause it to fall. Dn't feel bad that the way it is down here. bienvenidos a Mexico Lindo.

Hey girl!
I don't have an SBC mug & maybe nothing can replace the broken one but I have 5 or 6 Starbucks Mugs! Mermaids, Flowers, Hearts, Coffee Break, Logo, etc. Let me know if you might want one of those!
Love ya!

You can probably order that part online. For that matter, eBay probably has the identical mug, too.
