After visiting with daughters on Tuesday and Wednesday, we took Thursday to just “chill”. We made a pork chop dinner for The Abeytas and watched TV together.
Friday was Roberta’s day off so we had a grand time together. First we went to the Santuario de Chimayo, where we had first visited last Spring. I had given my container of Holy Dirt to my sister to take back to Costa Rica with her, so I wanted to get some more of the healing properties of this Holy Dirt. The place is so serene and peaceful.
This is the only part of the property we saw last Spring. This time we found a whole other area back by the back parking area.
Before returning to the truck, I saw this picturesque scene a little further down the stream. The cows were taking a little break from the heat of the day.
From the Santuario we went to lunch just down the street at Rancho de Chimayo.
Workmen were hanging up ristras of chiles all around the roof line.
This is a lovely restaurant with tiers of outside patios that provide a beautiful back drop for a meal.
Look at this try of beautiful food

Here’s my nachos with beans and jalapenos
Yummy taquitos with beans and guacamole
After lunch we drove north of Espanola to the Fruit Basket to buy some apples. New Mexico have the best tasting apples, IMHO. I wanted some to take with us for the winter. They had their hand-tied ristras and pumpkins out front.
Along with the bushel of apples Roberta and I shared, I bought some home-grown tomatoes and peaches. It was a nice time with friends. Later that night we went to Ohkay Casino for their seafood buffet and endless crab legs, fresh oysters and shrimp. Yummoooo…..wonderful!
Remember, you are loved.
