Thursday, Nov 22-- Thanksgiving

We took a bit of a holday for Thanksgving Day —slept in and had a relaxed latish (for us)  breakfast at the Burro Alley Cafe, which has hired the French pastry chef from the defunct bakery in the alley and offers an eclectic menu mixing French with  Moroccan and New Mexican.  Here's Angela, very happy about her eggs Florentine:

We then drove south of Santa Fe a ways to meet up with Friends of A and Z's from Lawrence, artists one of whom has a 97- year-old mother they are visiting.  She lives out in the country with a gorgeous view.  I have a new ambition in life…Here's  link to John Hulsey and Ann Trusty's web site:

And here is a link to their blog:

After a nice visit, we wandered back to Santa Fe through back roads, driving through Tesque, where we found a glassworks studio that was open and blowing glass — they don't ever shut the furnace down.

As seems to be the pattern on this trip, we started talking to the artists, finding out about their process and making friends.  I got a stunning bowl from Nathan, who took us on a tour of the back of the property, including visiting the peacocks.  Got to pet Wilson, the mean cat, for a while, until he finally lost it and had to bite me.

We got back to Santa Fe in time for naps before changing clothes for dinner.  Met for margaritas with A&Z's friends Nita and Kirk (Don't know what's wrong with me, I seem to like all their friends) before going out to Santacafe for a good but overpriced T-Day dinner.  Variations on the usual theme included cranberry chipolte relish and mashed potatoes wi green chillies.
