Happy Cinco de Mayo

My Mexico days are fading. It's like waking up and only remembering little bits and remnants of an almost forgotten dream. It doesn't seem possible that time has flown by so fast. All the planning, waiting, then delays and the whole trip almost getting trashed. Then seven glorious weeks living in Mexico gone in a flash.

But now we are home. It was a cold and wet first few days back to reality, but today was a perfect spring day. I checked out my gardens and had a chance to see the first colors of springtime. And to take note of all the yard work to be done.

No travel plans for quite some time now. New England is coming into her best seasons. There is nothing as pretty as the soft greens of springtime, the birds singing before the sun comes up, the early blooms; all reminding me of the coming long summer days at the beach, followed by the magic of the fall foliage that New England is known for.

So we will spend time gardening, enjoying family and friends, and savoring the beauty of one of the prettiest parts of the world.

I wish you peace, love and laughter

Hello, lets hope the weather stays like this. I have been checking your blog daily since you have been home but looks like I won't be needing to until your next trip. I enjoyed reading about Mexico. See you soon.

Welcome back, GG!

You have a beautiful garden.

Your blog reminded me that I need to catch up with my Spanish studies. I have been a lazy girl lately...

Have a beautiful day!

Hey Beth I will still be posting, just not about travels. The usual, yoga, nutrition, or other random thoughts.
I am glad you enjoyed the "Mexico saga"

Hi alfia, thanks, the garden is pretty, but lots of work. i am sure glad that my husband likes gardening even more than I do.

I love studying Spanish...I didn't start until my 40's. A late bloomer I guess!! But no more I love to travel to Spanish speaking countries...always an opportunity to keep it alive and learn more.
