Went to Mexico

We went to Mexico yesterday. Prices are up and we were told it was due to inflation. They expect it will get worse.
Also, the begging was much, much worse as is the hawking. (Definition of HAWKING: This term means to sell goods on the street and to attract the attention of people by calling out.)
It was hot and we walked all over that town looking at prices mainly. Susan and Amanda will be happy to learn that we purchased vanilla for them. 
We ate lunch at Elsa's. We had Pancho's with white cheese. Not as good as I remembered them to be. Butch did not share my opinion so perhaps it was just me and the head cold I am suffering that made it seems so.
I was very tired when we came home and took a nap. Went to bed early too. We had a rip-snorter of a storm last night with wind, heavy rain, thunder, and lightening.  I was slightly aware of it.
I conducted a computer class yesterday. It was a trial and a battle of minds with one person who shall remain anonymous. She lost in more ways than she will ever know. Am I worried about her somehow seeing this post. Not even a little bit.
Till next time...

Myrla on my mind

Myrla called tonight. I have been thinking of her so it was nice to hear from her. Myrla is my half-sister, although I have never thought of her as anything less than full, sister or otherwise. She has a big personality despite her 4 ft 10 inch height.
Myrla recently lost her partner of 33 years. She says Scott comes to her now and then. Most often when "The Price is Right" is on. That's my girl!
Here are a couple of pictures of her. Oh and yes, she is young enough to be my daughter.

Here she is with Peaches and Tippy.

Back to beading

I haven't done much beading for the past two years. I have been saying for far too long that I was going to take it up again. Well, by golly, I did! Yesterday and here is proof!
The current project is the orange and copper one. I have a good start.
