frog escapes…again

October 16, 2009

frogThis morning (for the third time) we found this denizen of our lily pond leisurely stroking his way in the swimming pool

How he (or she–how does one tell?) manages in the stealth of night to hop out of the pond and infiltrate the swimming pool,  despite its cover, is a mystery none of us can fathom.

Of course, we all understand that the frog is looking for a bigger arena to practice–but we think the normal (human) occupants of the pool may be upset by the presence of an alien life form.

If, however, we find the frog in the pool one more time–I vote to let it stay.

Deepen your practice

my ship comes in…

October 6, 2009

crateIn my last post,  I resigned myself to the abandonment of a fabulous shipment from India…because of Mexico’s incredibly convoluted and protectionist and esoteric import restrictions.

However, at the same time I, with the help of my ever- tactful manager, was negotiating for my other (equally fabulous) shipment from India which was stalled in Veracruz.

And, will wonders never cease, it has finally cleared customs, and will be wending its way to me….it only took 6 months and various dubious practices…

Amongst the treasures that are not for sale are two saris….that I couldn’t resist buying (despite my beloved brother’s fervent cri de coeur that he hoped I wasn’t going to turn into one of those idiotic western women who go around swathed in a sari with a bindi…(actually, that had been my plan…)).

Anyway, I can’t wait!
