What's Making Me Happy

It's Friday! Time for another edition of What's Making Me Happy This Week. This week is easy-peasy, as it is almost the same as last week's edition: the arrival of my friend Di from England. She got here last Friday, she is still here. She leaves tomorrow but I'm not thinking about that part yet. We have had such a busy + fun week, looky:

I am such a lucky woman, in so many ways. I have a fantastic friend who is willing to fly across the world to see me, and I live in a beautiful place to show her around. I realize this will be a hard one to top (for y'all, for me in future weeks) but what's making YOU happy this week?

  1. Babe! Seeing you in these pics makes me miss you so much! Thank you so much for posting photos. They really are very pretty--even Miss Tarantula. :)

    1. You have no idea how excited I was to spot that spider! I'd been hoping to show Di one in the wild. Last visit I was able to show her a coyote AND a roadrunner, the existence of both which she kind of doubted. :)

    1. Thank you, Laoch! I took them all with my Samsung mobile phone, if you can believe it. It's got a great camera, though the resolution is not fabulous. You can't really tell unless you blow 'em up, though.

  4. I got to chat with Di a bit at the fire pit. She is "good people." Today, the music faculty at CNM recorded a KHFM radio "Life sounds BETTER here!" blurb and that was fun. Also, Eric and I had drinks and dinner this evening at Artichoke Cafe before hearing Gavin's orchestra play at the National Hispanic Cultural Center.

    1. That all sounds so lovely! Did you have an actual artichoke at the Artichoke? I used to love their lemon-caper aioli, back when I could tolerate eggs. The raspberry vinaigrette is very nice, too.

      So glad you got to have a proper chat with Di!

  5. I've been missing you and New Mexico ever since I got back. If anyone ever doubts that social media doesn't really enhance your life, or says that Facebook friends aren't ''real'' friends, I shall show them this. You are definitely high up in my own list of happy-making things.
