I wanted a small rug to go under my easel when I am painting to protect my wood floors. I found this 3×5 indoor/outdoor rug which will work perfectly! These rugs are made following the fair trade principle and are crafted from 100% recycled plastic. Easy to hose off if necessary and being plastic, moisture will have no effect on the mat and it will not attract mildew. Lhasa by Fab Habitat.
On the way here and on the way home we stayed overnight in Amarillo at the DRURY HOTEL which is dog friendly! Our first KING bed since our trip began! Bill, Sheila and I are accustomed to sharing a KING bed at home and it has been a real transition and learning experience for us to sleep in a QUEEN. Some nights Sheila was in and sometimes out. Tight squeeze for three and she tends to run in her sleep (read-kick, kick, kick). KING beds are hard to come by in these TAOS rentals because most are trying to fit as many bodies in a house as possible (think SKI season). As a results they have queen, twin, bunk beds.
Bottom line is boy was SHEILA ROO happy to see a king bed and she loves the soft fluffy duvet! We arrived home around 12:45 to the hustle and bustle of city traffic. We had forgotten the fast pace of city life. So much to get caught up on in our home office. The back and front yard need cleaning up. Must go get that gas grill after we clean up! Air conditioner is not working upstairs! (Not good in this Texas heat!). So we have to deal with that. Oh well. Such is life! Back to our regular schedule. There is always something wonderful about summer vacations but there is also comfort in our regular home routines.
My posts from this point out for a while will be items for home or women’s clothing and accessories that I either saw in TAOS or were Inspired by TAOS. Bill, Sheila and I will be busy settling in and getting caught up for awhile. Until the next trip!

Today was our last full day in TAOS, and tomorrow, time to head home.
As promised the last few photos of the house tour. This is the little office where Bill set up camp.
The Peach bath and unfortunately I don’t have a picture of the Buddha bath except for that picture at the front of this post which is a funny little door built into the wall and when you slide the doors open, there is Buddha. (See previous post from August 15th).
I will have a busy day tomorrow and may not post until late in the evening or even the next day. Farewell TAOS! See ya’ next summer!
Our morning here was very cloudy and cool. Clouds were covering the top of TAOS mountain. Portent of fall. During our walk with Roo this am we came across some funny weeds. I saw them before but they didn’t really stand out until this cool morning. I think when it’s sunny they blend in to the ground.
Almost looks like fog. We took a little drive to the Arroyo Seco area to look more at the local and how far it was to TAOS. We are thinking of renting there next summer. After that we ran an errand or two and Bill drove me to the San Francisco de Asis Mission Church to take a few photos for paintings. If you do a little research you will see people are as enamored with the front side as they are the backside. I of course love the backside. Funny I will show you an AFTER and BEFORE (in that order) photo of the backside as people are parked all over the front and back.
Tonight is our last dinner at BELLA’s until next summer. The best New Mexican food! Then it’s home to Tex-Mex and Mex-Mex, which we both love.
