Put this in our window at the Suites for Halloween, but only got to give some candy bags to our neighbors. Apparently our hotel isn't a "party" place! Well, just wait until we get into our house & get ready for all the holidays in the next year!
Hope you all had a fun one!
BTW, we will be offline most of this next week as we move from here to our new home & all of our stuff gets delivered. So we'll only be available by our cell phone until everything gets delivered & hooked up! But we're so excited we can barely sleep anyway! See you all soon!
Here's us at our closing which was a blast! Both of our agents came & even gave us gifts! It only took an hour even tho' we had to sign a gazillion papers & people on the mainland talk so fast!!!
Check out our clothes! We both wore special "Harkers"!!!

These dances are mountain spirit dances for healing. The dancers are painted in black & white symbols with large jingle bells, ribbons & feathers as part of their outfits. But the main thing that amazed me were the incredible headdresses! Wooden with some mirrors & paint...and they'd dance with these heavy things on their head, even bowing clear to the ground! Just amazing!
The Balloon Fiesta! Wow! We were several miles away from the field but were still able to see so many hot air balloons! Sometimes the wind caught 'em & flew 'em toward the city! Some even landed in very odd places. Like this one below:
So, while we're waiting for all the paperwork & inspections to get finished, we decided to see a few things that were happening around here. One was the Rio Grande Arts & Crafts Festival that was held in this tent. It's a 3 story high tent! It had lots of painters, potters, glass workers, stone carvers, wood carvers & even one person with an Oshibana booth! They came from so many states! Lots of pretty stuff inside, so we got lots of ideas. And even tried some free range goat cheese that was so yummy! Gonna love this place!

Yea! We made an offer, they countered & we accepted! So we're believing all the paperwork will go thru' smoothly & we'll be in our new home by the end of October! Happy Halloween & Samhain! Woo hoo! You can see a pic above, but the whole back yard needs to be done! So we will be busy campers! Gardens, fruit trees, grape vines, herbs, tomatoes, arugula...here we come...oh, yeah, & some flowers, trees & bulbs! Yahoo!

Hi, Everyone! It's true! We finally arrived in New Mexico! But we've been so busy trying to find a home, and dealing with a nasty tooth infection for poor DH, that I haven't had time to blog one bit! So decided before we go meet a realtor today, I'd at least post one picture. This is up in the Rio Grande Gorge. Beautiful country! The Rio Grande is really blue up there & the land is full of farming & horses and mountains. Did you all know there are more mountains in NM than in Colorado? Anyway, we're off again today to look at more houses! Wish us luck!

Echoed voices in the night, she's a restless spirit on an endless flight...
...She got the moon in her eye!
Recognize that old Eagles song? For our last BBQ in our yard... I just had to try for this pic!!!
