Hope House Home for Boys

The cards that I sell here in Chapala and Ajijic, Mexico benefit the dental program for the boys at Hope House in the nearby village of Ixlahuacan. There are close to 30 boys at the home and many of them come to the home having received no dental treatment. If you live here at Lakeside and would like to order a quality, hand crafted card for a special occasion and help me contribute to this worthy cause, please e-mail me at bettyinchapala@yahoo.com Card price is 50 pesos; the entire sales price is donated to Hope House.

Monday in Ajijic



Hello friends! I find that I can receive e-mails but not send any! However, I CAN blog and I have couple of pictures for you today!
Had lunch at a pleasant cafe in the Ajijic town square. Sat outside under an umbrella, enjoying music and the lovely temperatures. A lady who was dining alone invited me to sit with her and we had a nice visit. She is from Missouri and has spent a lot of time down here in the past seven years; she just drove in a couple of days ago and is planning to make her home here permanently. The large floral painting above the door of a local art shop is her work.
The street scene is outside my b&b. Aren't those flowers a gorgeous explosion of color? When I left this morning a gentleman was in the process of trimming the trees into those neat box shapes.
Mary Anne sent me a neat site with lots of Christmas art to color -- this was one of my favorites -- I'll have to do it in bright Mexican colors!
