Tiny Gingerbread Houses from notmartha.com

Are those cute, or what? My wonderful DIL found some gluten-free ginger cookies at Fred Meyer. They were also vegan, so both Javantea & I had a special treat.

It is so terrific to be back in San Miguel de Allende. I’m staying in the same casita for now- Jan 1. I seem to be becoming migratory rather than nomadic 😉

Here are some links for your Friday amusement…

World Air Traffic– see, I’m not the only one on the move!

Shop Etsy by COLOR! (I can waste hours this way. OK, I have wasted hours this way.)

Sushi Madness- Candy sushi or lego sushi? I can’t decide.

Virtual Paintout of San Miguel- What a terrific idea… Using Google street view to “be” wherever you like (some limitations, still.)

Supplies for making your own Day of the Dead decorations!

On my way…

Just a quick note- I’m on my way to San Miguel de Allende, again. If all goes as planned, I’ll be there about 6 months, until just before Easter.

This time, I know a little more what to expect. But I hope to do more exploring- Mexico is a fabulous country. And definitely need to work more on my Spanish. (Claro que si!)

I do have a Skype number now, so my peeps in the US can reach me via a US phone number. That will make things much easier on all of us, I hope.

I’m going in late Oct to see how Dia de los Muertos is celebrated (let me guess, lots of fireworks.) Here’s an article that I enjoyed about what all happens.

And I want to find out what fruits & veggies there are that I missed last time (more on that later, I’m sure!)

I have to specially thank Forest & Forest of Stuff Away in Port Townsend for moving all my STUFF (yes, there’s still a lot of it, despite all my decluttering) back into storage. They are both fun & efficient, and the bad jokes are free. But I do think I qualify for a frequent flee-er rate @ this point.

Hasta luego!
