planking in mexico, in the picture

I've been in northern Mexico in Zacatecas, a former mining town at 8,000 feet, for the last few weeks.

mexico kitty, 52

I was busy at the end of May and beginning of June looking for a place to rent, so my blog pretty much fell to the way side. We move into the apartment in July, and I'm looking forward to settling into my art studio!

We are spending a few weeks visiting my m-i-l in Mexico. She has this adorable tabby-tortie mix kitty cat named Ma_at.

She is a sweetheart and loves belly rubs in the sun.
