Hey, adam I was wondering if you could make me a post for family of adam. Also I am going to start a blog on family of adam called the candle wick flame. So can you please give me a my own post?
Do you ever feel like the world just seems to freeze in the middle of somthing. Today I was looking for something to do when all of a sudden a my black cat (Midnight)jumped out of nowhere and scared me half to death. when I got up she just stood there like nothing happened, and looking at me like i had just dropped out of the sky. I looked back at her back but I think I was really breathing hard because she raced by me and nicked my skin, and thats when the world just froze on me. Any way I think sometimes cats are the ones who drop out of the sky.
We have had Oregon weather for the past two days with dark overcast skies and rain. It's been wonderful hearing the the pitter-patter of rain on our aluminum roof. Isabell and I went to Santa Fe to look for clothes for her. It was nice getting out and walking around. Today we will go to Espanola and do a little grocery shopping.
Quick funny Kindergarten story. We just finished reading and one of the activities was to name a part of your body. "What's on your head?" "Hair!" They would respond. So, Anyway here is there response to another question.
Mr. Cortez: "What's under your nose?"
Not exactly the response I was looking for, but it was quite funny and I had a good laugh about it!
Back to the daily grind
Well, we had a golden opportunity of a 3 day weekend without Isabell and no work! (Isabell went to the Four Corners Folk Festival with friends) What you may ask did we do with our exciting time? Not much! Robbie had a cold last week, and by Thursday it hit me with a vengence. Although the Nyquil allowed (forced) us to sleep in, we spent a lot of the weekend running errands and blowing our noses.
On an up note, we picked up a bushel of green chile from our friends farm, and for a little extra they roasted it for us. Robbie and I then spent 3 hours peeling, seeding, chopping and bagging the chile. Most of it went right in the freezer, except for the cup or so that went into a rockin green chile mac & cheese. Perfect comfort food!
On a down note, we went up to Taos on Monday, and while heading out of town decided to drive in to the Ford dealership to look a the sticker prices on a couple of cars. We weren't sure if they were open, but one of the gates was partially open, so we figured we'd just drive in really quick to check out the prices. Unfortunately the low gate swang back a little and Robbie ran into it. While there's not much outward damage, the radiator got a crack. After a few hours getting it towed down to Espanola (buy a very nice company, who was actually closed, but took care of us and gave us a ride all the way home) we got my car and picked up Isa. Thank goodness insurance will cover most everything including the towing and rental car! It was a good reminder of why we should never attempt to go anywhere on a holiday, when everything is closed.
I'm really looking forward to seeing everyone this weekend. I'm hoping all the green chile stew I'm making will blow the cold away and you won't have to avoid me like the plague!
