WE TOOK OUR MOUTHS TO ETHIOPIA, WHILE WE REMAINED IN SAN MIGUEL

February 26, 2020

Our love of Ethiopian food really started when Glenn and I were living in Oakland, CA before we made the big move to San Miguel. And, one of the things the area is known for is it’s wide range of restaurants serving food from Ethiopia and Eritrea. 

We would get a hankering for this food at least once a month. Especially since we had a great little place right around the corner from us on Telegraph Avenue. We loved the variety of spices used and the heat of our favorite dishes. And tearing off a piece of the Injera bread to scoop up a tasty morsel by hand, well, who can’t get into that.  Continue Reading…

WHEN A CHANGE OF HAIR COLOR SIGNIFIES A CHANGE IN LIFE

February 21, 2020

The thing is, I have an urge to shake things up a bit, I need a change of hair color and a shorter cut to signify our changing lives. 

Good things have been happening in my life, it seems like everything is falling into place! That is why I am changing my hair color. To signify that my life is so GOOD!! And HOPEFUL. And I feel DARING! I got the idea to have our followers join in the color decision, by posting the choices on all my platforms (FB, Instagram, Pinterest) and asking, is it silver/gray, lilac/gray or light gray. Yes, you see I have the gray areas now so why not embrace them. The responses have been fun to gather and read. The result of this survey is Silver-Gray with the most votes.  I am bringing spring in with a bang. Continue Reading…

WHEN LADY ZEN COMES TO TOWN

February 4, 2020

When Lady Zen arrives in San Miguel de Allende it is a very special moment for all of us!! We cannot seem to get enough of her. And to our delight, she comes often.

Glenn and I first saw Lady Zen after our arrival at our new home base of San Miguel De Allende, Mexico in 2018. She made such a mind-blowing impact on us that we have made it to all of her performances since, as long as we are in town. Who was this powerhouse that we had never heard of before? Continue Reading…
