So this post follows TS John blowing thru here, flooding El Paso and Juarez for the third time in 5 weeks, even as T and I made our trek to visit N&V in Santa Fe. It was gorgeous, mostly cloudy and *cool* up there, a reminder that 60 degree highs are just around the corner for us in Las Cruces. N&V were fabulous hosts, treating us to all sorts of tasty goodness at several of the very yummy places to eat in the state capital. The doggies got a chance to run at the office leash park after a long and beautiful walk thru a large portion of downtown with V as our guide. We managed to drag N&V out of their lovely city long enough for a hike thru the Tent Rocks, just southwest of Santa Fe near the Cochiti Pueblo. Very cool and somewhat treacherous, especially towards the end, a steep climb that stopped T & myself because the dogs couldn't jump the climb (I'm okay with this; non-jumpy dogs is usually an asset).
Today was a return to routine, which is to say school, something I still haven't got the hang of this semester (I'm missing those Fridays off!). The most frustrating thing, however, has to be the meetings. Division meeting today, 1 1/2 hours which seemed to go on for 5 because we RECEIVED ABSOLUTELY NO USEFUL INFORMATION. Bleh. Jumping thru hoops can be very frustrating sometimes.
Good news tho! I have yet another "personal chef" gig, the fourth this year. This could get to be a habit!
