It has been too hot to watch a movie in there, so we are trying to figure out how to get the flat screen into the bedroom where the air conditioning is. Here is the chest and the covered flat screen and as expected, Senor is reflected in the mirror, back there, in one of his tool closets.
Another beautiful overcast morning and lots of fog in the foothills, but it is all burning off and we are fixing to have a very hot day. We are getting so close to Dia de San Juan Bautista and the official day of rain, and I have my fingers crossed.
We are still getting city water, every day, for several hours and it is enough to keep the tinnaco, the new junior tinnaco and the eljibe all full, enough to water everything we want, but I promise you, I am still selective and careful.
The mesquite man came yesterday. He comes and rakes up as much of the mesquite pods as he can. They are constantly dropping from the tree. Then he takes it in huge bags to his fields and feeds his cows. Not only do his cows like the seed pod, they like the leaves and branches as well.Below is a field down the street where piles of mesquite branches, leaves and pods feed the cows.If you liked my bench, you might like two of my new pendants I have put in my Etsy shop. I have to cut and fire again soon, as I said before. I will have a couple of bazaars this fall to attend as well as a few Open Houses here in Alamos and I need to get ready.
No, I am not so bored that I have to keep finding things to do. I have always been like this, I love to just make stuff. My sister is like this also, but she is the talented one. She can take a stick and turn it into something incredibly creative and decorative.
The nice thing about making stuff now is I can make all the fun stuff I want, and because I am so limited in the types of supplies I have here, it makes it that much more creative and fun.
In fact, now the pillows are done, I have something new to work on and I will show you soon.
I really need to get going though, get myself to the mercado before it gets to hot to put a foot out the door. Then this afternoon I plan to try and give up the nappie and work on my new project!
Hope you are having a great day today, doing whatever it is you are doing! linda lou
