Mid-winter updates

January 31, 2019 by Seraph in Cortez


Just a couple of updates on the Cortez household. Isabell has enrolled at Fort Lewis College in Colorado next fall. A friend of hers is also going and they are hoping to be dorm mates. Her senior year is dwindling away, and she's added a job with the school's history department a few days each week.

Robbie's year has been busy. His class has finished their winter testing and he's getting a new student tomorrow. He's been having fun reading a lot of books about Alaska and wants to add a trip to his bucket list.

I head back to work on Friday, and I'm already dreading the endless paperwork to catch up on. I am looking forward to hugs from all my students. I also had the first of two basal cell carcinomas removed today. The other surgery will be next week. This first one is at my hairline and I'm not allowed to wash my hair for a 2 days. I hope the world is ready for crazy hair days! The second one is right under my eye. I think I'll wear a pirate eye patch for a few days so my students chalk it up to the usual Mrs. Cortez looney behavior, instead of my slow morph into Frankinstein.

We've had a real winter this year and stay warm under the piles of our furry animals (cats, dogs, and now a rabbit). I'm definitely looking forward to spring!

Spring Time

Spring winds swept through Chimayo last night, picking up the large umbrella from our back patio and carrying it over our house! Unfortunately, it landed on my car and cracked my windsheild pretty badly. Fortunately, it didn't hit anything else, or do any other damage (and the umbrella is alright too!). I guess this is what we get for wishing for a little spring time weather to come our way!

Home Phone

Hello all! Our house phone is down right now and won't be fixed until later this week (we hope). If you need to reach us, try our cellphones, but please be patient as we don't have service in our house (darn those 21" thick walls!).

Hugs all around!!

20th Anniversary

October 22, 2017 by Seraph in Cortez

Last weekend Robbie and I had a small gathering of friends for our anniversary out at Vivac Winery.  It ended up being a beautiful NM afternoon, and we were lucky enough to have an old minister of ours come out and do a short "recommittment" ceremony. 

I'll post pictureses if I can figure out how!

Happy anniversary to us! I think next year we...

Happy Birthday Seraph!

Happy birthday sweet sister.  I still remember when Jenny and I pushed you around in your "moon buggy" all those years ago.  I suppose you've grown up since then, but that's how I still think of you.

Dad was looking at Emma with all her curly blond hair and remarking how much she looks like you when you were a kid.  She has the same kind disposition too, which I'm ever grateful for.

Happy Birthday

Happy birthday Mom! I'm hoping the fact that I can't reach you on the phone means that you're out partying it up in style!
