I dream of Albuquerque
My friend and fellow blogger Stephanie (Hooking, Knitting & Living) asked this morning where I would rather be and the first thing that came to my mind was this place. It's a park along the Rio Grande River in Albuquerque, New Mexico. We visited there almost four years ago in November and it's just so beautiful with the golden grass and the yellow cottonwoods along the river.
Right now in Victoria it's grey and misty and has been for almost the past week. This is not what I call September weather. So in my mind I'm going to Albuquerque today.
This year we're staying here in Victoria over the winter. We're not heading to Mexico as we have done for the past three years. Our rental house needs major work and so we'll be knee deep in renovations and painting for a few months. Perhaps we'll manage to take a short holiday somewhere nice (Mexico, New Mexico, Cuba...?) anyway somewhere warm. It all depends on how the work goes.
Meanwhile I dream of Alburquerque with the golden grass. Outside my window its montone grey with a hint of dark green. What's it like outside your window?
