Last Thursday, my friend Cecilia Prado invited me to her school. The public school is in Tequisquiapan, central Mexico and has over 800 students. The older students were doing a presentation on all of the states in Mexico. Each group did a verbal presentation in english and spanish, food from the state and traditional clothing. I had no idea what to expect????
The other day I was outside playing around in my flower beds (pots), a little weeding – a little watering. For the past week I had noticed a lot of bird action around one of my ferns, well look what I happily discovered. Quite amazing and beautiful! i am surprised as the plant is in front of my kitchen window and there’s always lots going on. This has not seemed to bother mother and father birds at all, they merely come and go as they please. I have been very careful not to disturb the nest but every day I am curious to the progress of the eggs. I have no idea what type of bird is dwelling in that tiny little nest, grey/brown with a red chest???? The eggs are tiny, about the size of a man’s thumbnail, so precious!
Spring, spring, spring ….. there are many pregnancies and births of employees at my husbands office. I am beginning to feel like a “gramma”, good practice I suppose.
I will keep you posted on the progress. Happy spring 🙂
I decided to create a “space” for me, where I can relax and create. There is a small deck off of my bedroom that was not being used, so I decided that would be my spot! Table, chairs, lot’s of plants (white), candles and my laptop. In the morning I sit with my coffee, in the afternoon with a cool fruit water and in the evening a glass of wine. Life is very good 🙂
This past long weekend my husband and I drove to Mexico City to stay for 3 nights. We were told that the city would be quiet as many people leave for a mini vacation. Well, by the flow of traffic leaving the city, it was like a mad exodus. Mexico City is around 30 million people, so we thought maybe down to 29 million?
Our hotel was in the Reforma/Zona Rosa area very close to Chapultepec Park on the Paseo de la Reforma. This area is great for walking, restaurants, shopping and people watching. For the most part, the city did not seem overly crowded however when we decided to visit Chapultepec Park the story changed. The photo above was taken as we were walking toward the castle, I turned around and took the shot. PEOPLE! It was not a big deal, everyone seemed to be enjoying the day and having family time.
We walked a lot, ate great food, took a bus tour (not so great), went to the Saturday Art Market in San Angel, drank wine, ate chocolate from Oaxaca, drank tequila, did a little shopping, relaxed and only got lost once. It was a great long weekend. If you have not been to Mexico City, I highly recommend visiting and if you have you will understand my next comment. The city is such a mixture of history, culture, architecture, food, colours, people, smells and sounds.
Here are some things I saw ……….
