We hope you all had a great weekend!
We had a thoroughly enjoyable one. After a busy week at Habitat,
Pam and I celebrated by taking our wash over to the Laundromat and getting a couple of loads done. Yikes - we checked two locations and both were $2.75 a load!
Next we had a great meal at Los Amigos Restaurant which is a small restaurant near the Rodeo Grounds. It has to be some of the best New Mexican food in town. We had tostadas and it really hit the spot.
On Saturday, Reid and Amy arrived for a weekend stay at the Roadrunner. It didn't take long to meet Paul, Tom and Ray here at the Rodeo Grounds.
After the Verizon store we took Reid and Amy for a tour of the two Habitat worksites to show them what we have been doing all week. Next, we went by the house where we grew up. It appeared to be in pretty good shape compared to other times we have seen it.
On Sunday, we decided to stay put at the Roadrunner Chapel and listen to a good sermon on the internet from Ken Boa's series on the book of Hebrews. Then we packed a lunch and took a drive to Hyde State Park and the Santa Fe Ski Basin.
We had packed a lunch and went to the downtown Santa Fe area where we found a picnic table on the County Courthouse lawn. After that, we walked across the street to the Sweeney Convention Center to the Indian Art Festival show (known as Native Treasures). That was quite a treat. From the classic to the contemporary, we saw jewelry, sculptures, paintings, carvings and a lot more. Very impressive!
Next, we headed home and had fajitas for dinner. While dinner was being made, I called AppleCare. My MacBook has been getting hung up. Especially when I load pictures and /or work on the blog.
Turns out I had a permissions issue in my Mac OS and the install disk I have been carrying around was scratched so I could not reinstall. I set up an appointment with the Apple Store in Albuquerque, then we ate.
On Memorial Day, we drove to the Santa Fe National Cemetery and got there early. They were setting up for the activities including an address by the governor. We found our parents site.
After that, we went back to the coach, got my laptop and headed to Albuquerque. Pam stayed with Amy while Reid and I went over to the Apple Store. I upgraded to Snow Leopard. I have been regularly backing up things in Time Machine and was able to load everything back onto my laptop. I even took my MiFi and checked it out there. Everything is working well now and I am very pleased.
While the 3 hour install and backup / restore job was running, we met Pam and Amy at Trader Joe's for lunch. After that we finished up at the Apple Store, stopped by Reid and Amy's house and then drove back to the Santa Fe Rodeo grounds.
It was a long and wonderful weekend in Santa Fe! Hope yours was too!
Thanks for joining us on the Roadrunner Chronicles! Please stop by again. And have a great week!
