Saving the Garden

Don't worry this is not another post on canning. However, I do have some Quince to experiment with. But back to the point, Colin and I are trying to save our garden from the impending frost. How you ask? With a hoop house. 

This puppy will have plastic laid over the top and secured. Perhaps we can have greens all winter. Or perhaps we can save my silly pepper plants that did nothing all summer long and then two weeks ago decided to flower. Ity bity seasonally confused peppers anyone? I will post another picture of our new hoop house once it has its plastic attached.

Sunsets in NM

You know your a New Mexican if you look at a gorgeous sunset and say, "Yeah, that's nice, but I've seen better." Well it didn't get much better than the other night. Believe it or not, these photos were not enhanced in any way, shape, or form. 

 All the RVs are parked for Balloon Fiesta.
Didn't Colin get some great shots?

The Quaking Aspen

It is truly fall in New Mexico when it is time to go see the aspens turn into fields of gold.

We took full advantage of the aspens in Santa Fe by going for a bike ride through them on Saturday and then a hike with Colin's parents on Wednesday.

This little light of mine

Well, we are making some progress on the kitchen even if it is just some little things. We finally installed the undercabinet lights on the microwave cabinet.

My sister Camille says never to have interior lights on while taking pictures but I had to break that rule to show you my new little light. I also obviously did not style this picture. It even has a little switch. So it will only be on when I am making coffee or searching for a chocolate treat in the bread box (now you know our secret chocolate hiding spot).

Thanks to Heather and Norm this little light was free since it was left over from when they built their house. I think free improvements are the best kind.
