Morning my Lovelies. Hope you are making yourselves a very special day.
Had a beautifully touching surprise this evening. I was sitting in the living room when Reyes came to the door. Reyes has been with me for a long time now, and really, I don't know what I would have done without him. He hauled and hung my paintings for shows, hung paintings, curtains etc. in my house ... just about anything I was not able to do, Reyes did it. He also cared lovingly for my garden. kept the bird baths clean, the water in the fountain changed ... etc. etc. My right hand man.
So when I looked up from my chair, Reyes was at the door carrying a beautiful basket full of goodies. A good bye present. I melted. Luckily a friend was here and able to take a photo of the two of us.
a beautiful hand woven basked full of fruit ...
A traditional clay cooking pot - good for absolutely everything .....
open fires, BBQ's, stoves, ovens .. you name it. I adore these traditional pots and have several. This will be a very special one to add to my collection.
Two CD's of Spanish music ...
... and a beautiful hand woven tortilla basket - totally insulated on the inside to keep the tortillas warm.
I can't tell you how heart wrenching it is to leave this place. My little paradise. I don't really think I realized how deep my roots have grown here. Each of these items will hold special meaning in my new home.
That's it for today. Thanks for stopping by. Each moment is so precious .. enjoy it and hold it dear.
