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.

Beautiful Sky

Hello all! This is a picture that I just had to take a couple of days ago as I was sitting at my craft table/computer desk. The weather here at Lake Chapala is close to perfect. We are in the rainy season where the landscape gets so lush and green. It normally rains during the later evening or night and the days are bright and beautiful. Daytime temperatures have been in the 70's F. -- the most pleasant July and August that I have spent in many a year.

We have decided that we are going to have solar panels installed on the roof of our house so that we can take advantage of all the wonderful sunshine we have here to generate most of the electricity that we will need to run our household. They are going to begin the installation tomorrow.

We enjoyed an evening with Larry's mom and a friend that I met when I was here by myself last year. My friend Chris brought her little poodle, Peppe, with her and we enjoyed watching him run around the yard while we ate grilled hamburgers out on the front porch.

Better head off to bed now!

Betty, what a beautiful shot, I am sure you aren't missing those Texas temps! Sorry I haven't been by for a while, I missed some beauties by you. Your ornament card is beautiful and I bet irl it just shimmers. I love Flourishes stamps. The pictures of the birds and flowers are so wonderful and I appreciate your sharing. Have a wonderful day.
