Across the street... the redbud tree is blooming. It is stunning.
I am not sure why they call it a redbud... it should be purplebud ... or fuschia explosion ... or some such.
But alas... it is lovely.

We are in the midst of spring here in ABQ. Warm days..... 60-70s... light breezes... cloudy skies...
It is wonderful. I love this weather... and this time of year (except for my allergies).

And so... the past few days have been filled with some  light spring cleaning ... jazz music... (allegra)... and coffee.... fresh fruit and easy meals.
Tonight I have made some Jamaican spice chicken... and paired it with fresh fruit (strawberries, blackberries, raspberries)... 
cheeses of several varieties... crackers and a delicious white reisling from Germany.

And I am back in the midst of jewelry making. It's hard in the winter here... as my studio has poor lighting and is not insulated.. .but in the springtime... it is wonderful. And I am glad to be working again.
 I have been digging out the gemstones... the mixed metals... and crafting some lovely new pieces.
Please check out the shop...

--- and enjoy your holiday weekend :)
