A Lovely time.......

 Hola, Buen dia! I have been a lazy blogger, but believe me, we have been busy.

A week ago we took a little time off to celebrate my birthday. It poured rain on that day and the following day, here in Alamos. We had over five inches of rain in our barrio. It was a little chilly, but definitely a feeling of fall.
 I went for a walk in the rain, we went for a drive in the rain, we went to my favorite taco stand for lunch in the rain and grilled burgers for dinner in the rain.

 And really, the main request I had was the first fire of the season in the new fireplace.
So, I laid out the tools and asked Senor to light the fire.

 Immediately it started smoking. Not at all what we expected. This is Senor's second fireplace to build from 'scratch'. And he has repaired one other inside the casa. It isn't like he does not have experience. I think we were both pretty surprised.

It took him about 30 seconds and he yelled............whoa, we have plastic and wood over the top............
He rushed out into the rain and scrambled up the ladder which sank more deeply into the mud as he climbed, tore off the wood and plastic, came back down the tilting ladder and repaired the fire.  (For those of you who thought the fireplace was an after thought, it will eventually have an amapa mantle and be plastered to the top).

que le vaya bien and if it's your birthday, then feliz cumpleanos!!!

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! linda lou
I settled into a comfy chair in front of the fire while Senor went out in the rain and grilled burgers.
Lovely time................
