So my daughter and her boyfriend visited before Christmas which was so exciting for us. They wanted to visit some of the places with cultural information and history on the Kumiai of Baja California Norte. One of the places we visited was Centro Ecoturístico Siñaw Kuatay. This is a small community in Valle de Guadalupe which includes a museum, restaurant which serves a traditional meal for larger groups, an area used for gatherings and events, a little store selling handmade crafts, and a nice campground.… Read More
Last year my word was Balance for the New Year. In some aspects, I did find some balance but is still evolving so this year is to develop. I had tried a schedule last year and it didn’t seem to be successful but since I don’t work like I used to, the concept of time was totally lost.… Read More
Well, it has been three years since the move to Baja and this is our fourth Christmas. Each year, we have become more established and getting our own groove in life which includes the holidays.

So we had seen Un Padre No Tan Padre and I even have it on Netflix.… Read More
I thought I would try using pattern weights versus pins and decided to make them myself. I bought larger washers and used two to three together. Fabric, ribbon
We have too many controls and I believe most of us do, so I decided to make some caddy’s for the living room and bedroom.
For the bedroom caddy:
I utilized leftover material from the bedroom curtains, some scrapes from the backside and some batting. I added two smaller pieces of material to create the pockets to hold items, the upper one is one large pocket while the other has three.… Read More
In the US, many celebrate Cinco de Mayo but this really is not Mexico’s Independence Day. It is September 16th but the celebration starts on the evening of the 15th with “El Grito de Dolores”.
