Ristras for a fragile soul
Will be missed this year

Glad I have photos from all my years past in New Mexico. Mrs. Spadoman and I have postponed any traveling for the rest of this Winter, at least for now. I still have some tests and procedures to get through and need to build up more strength. All that is coming along, but it will take a lot of time.
The landlord in Truth or Consequences has found a tenant for our little casita and my motorcycle is safely stored away in Albuquerque at a dealership there. The places aren't going to move away and I am more optimistic every day that I'll visit this fabulous land again in my future, a feeling I didn't have two short weeks ago.
Luckily, we have ristras and other colorful paintings, blankets and clothing from the Southwest. We even have a bag of frozen green chiles in the freezer and found an outlet that will ship them when we are in the mood for a New Mexican style meal. Of course with wholesale diet changes for me, those kind of meals might be less often and even then, less in quantity. Maybe it is a good thing we’re not going to be there this Winter.
In the meantime, I’ll gaze upon what I have here at home sweet home and watch the fire crackling away in the fireplace as the snow flakes wander down from heaven. It’s still very nice to be home, and yesterday, I spent with my family at the youngest daughter’s place. It was such an experience to be thankful for, to be with everyone, watching football, listening to the kids laughter, sharing large quantities of really good food and generally just seeing the relief in everyones face and smile that we’re all together again. I am truly blessed for having them, and for having you, my bloglandia friends. Thank you all, again and again, for your support through all this.
May Peace be in your lives
