Worktop is dumping ground for everything taken on trip and never looked at!
So no art or craft, well I finished the beading part of my bracelet on the way home . I read going and finished my book The Farthest Home Is in an Empire of Fire: A Tejano Elegy by John Phillip Santos, on the return. The author is a San Antonio native whose roots extend to the conquistadors and early settlers, the book is the story of his search for those roots and is set in the area we visited.
We saw the famous Green Jays and the Chachalaca, a large chicken like bird with a shrill call when threatened. The whole are is along the banks of the Rio Grande and is swamp and tropics heavily guarded for Mexico is across the river and it is the territory of the dope lords and gangs. Often a mist hangs over the park and all you hear are the birds.
So not much of anything craft or artsy this week. Oh yes I ordered Gelli plates from Dick Blicks on Cyber Monday but NO special deal for me.
Now on with the laundry
Have to tell you I bought several dozen Tamales from Delias, they are the best. Very spicy and tasty.
