ABQ 2017 - Fun at the Zoo with a Friend

   Christopher and I go way  When I lived here from 2010-2014, I tutored him.  I'm back and I am TRYING to tutor him again...Algebra II   Geez!!!  He is the grandson of a dear friend of mine, Jean.  Well, one day a couple weeks ago in the middle of tutoring, Christopher got the idea that we should go to the Zoo!  Soooo, we DID!  And we had a fabulous time...we will have to go again though because the penguin exhibit won't be finished until Spring!
Me and Christopher

ABQ 2017- My New Digs...A Month...or so... in the Creating

   Wow!  I am finally settled in here in Albuquerque after two moves in 12 days!!!  It has taken a month, but there are absolutely NO boxes anywhere, I have plants that are happily trying to stay alive, and I know where everything is!!!  Yippee!  Woohoo!  Before I continue, I'd like to express my appreciation to those friends of mine from near and far that have supported me in this move in ways so amazing that there are truly no words.  Thank you with all my heart!
    I had a fabulous time setting up house again after 3 years and 3 months of being on the road full time.  Those years left an indelible mark on my heart and soul...a mark of gratitude, amazement, laughter, hard work, trust, surprises, self inquiry, friendships, mishaps, fun, courage, patience, acceptance and love.  Love for life and the opportunities that came my way.  I learned as much, if not more, about myself as I did about this country.  I could go on and on, but I'll save that story for my book!
     So back to my new!!!
