Maybe when Byurl comes home,

Parental note: Saraya has a big imagination. I suppose a child who lives near a river will dream of where that river could take her. However, if you read the posts from March, she also talked about Going Down the River the week after she arrived when she realized that life is not one big party. I do hope she brings back some fish tacos, though.
It turns out that the Dandelion is named Christine
and her store is called Dandelion Fair.
Thank you, Christine!
This is only the second dress I own
cause I don't like girly girly dresses,
and this is perfect!

This chile was just put in the roaster
so it is not shriveled and brownish yet.
There were two men working four roasters
at Wagner's Farm in Corrales.
There was a line of people waiting to get their fresh green chile roasted
so they can chop it up and put it on just about everything
from green chile cheeseburgers, to breakfast burritos,
and traditional New Mexican dishes.

Hey, turn up those tunes!
Kids aren't at work here or anything!
I did Geography on the GLOBE.
I found Spain.
I have friends in Spain!
I also have a really cool pair of jeans from Spain!
I didn't know that Finland is on the top of the world!
I've got friends in Finland, too!
Can I write the names of naughty kids on the board?
What do you mean I have to stay at home tomorrow
when all the kids arrive
for the first day of school?

My next adventure was down to an acequia!
This irrigation ditch is on the registry of historic places.
Aren't I cool...
making mom sit in the ants
with the flies
just to take more pictures of cute me!
Get me out of here!!!!

We walked around inside,
and then we smelled something wonderful!
It was bread baking in the horno oven!
And it was time for the bread come out of the oven!
This is what the rest of the courtyard looked like.
The torreon is the tower in the back.
I got adventurous and sat on the ladder with the rug!
I tried out the carding combs!
The carding combs help lengthen the wool fibers
so that they are ready for spinning.
There was a hut for dying yarn with natural dyes.
There was a big, black pot over a fire,
and it smelled bad!
But look what you can make with pretty colors of wool!
There is a woven rug and a piece of colcha embroidery.
Look at how pretty the drying yarns are!
In New Mexico, there were not enough trees
