Bulldog Man and I took a nice trip to Southern New Mexico last week, to surprise his parents. We realized it had been 2+ years since we last saw his parents. Where did time go? It flies so fast, and before you know it, years have passed by.
|Pronghorn Antelope all over the place.|
The trip was fast and furious. We had two days to travel to and from home, and 3 days to take care of anything Bulldog Man’s parents needed help with.
We had so much fun catching up, and just being with his parents. Every time we visit them it’s so relaxing and enjoyable. Their home sits in a basin of the desert surrounded completely by mountains.
At night you can see stars and planets everywhere. The first time I visited Bulldog Man’s parents, I felt as if I were in heaven. I ventured outside and looked up at the sky. I felt as if I could reach out and touch the stars. This was the first time in my life where I had seen so many stars, and had this natural calm instantly come over me.
When traveling out West and in the mountains, you must drink plenty of water, due to the elevation changes, to keep hydrated, and not miss out on any authentic Mexican food. Yes, that’s right…..Bulldog Man and I took his parents out to eat, and had REAL Mexican food at Si Senors. The food just melted in your mouth. And don’t forget to order yourself up a plate of Stuffed Sopapillas with honey.
Not only did we fill ourselves up with great food, I learned how to knit from my MIL. Bulldog Man spent time with his Dad at his Men’s Bible Study group, and we caught up with dear friends.
Now that we’re home, it’s time to get back to work on the homestead, and find a place to hang 2 beautiful wind chimes my MIL made out of wine bottles.
Life is good!!
