Week 9 in Yucatan

Can't believe it has been this long!

semi-overcast 24 °C

This week was quieter than most weeks.
The weekly B&S had to be moved indoors this week as rain started just as everyone was arriving.

That evening 30 ladies were invited for a potluck dinner at Suzanne's lovely house. I was surprised to see how many ladies I actually know. I even met a woman from Stittsville. Diane from Montreal sang to us in English and French. I enjoy the diversity of people we meet here.


Thursday morning I met up with Linda and Alexis in Merida at the corner where Tags, a shoe store found by Linda, is but as often the case it was not open yet so we killed time by walking around the area

Look at this exposed root on this tree!

I just had to buy a pair of these delighteful shoes especially since they were only 24$ The pair in the top left corner are mine!

I then ordered a custom made leather pair of shoes to be ready in a week! Where can you do that for $50. I think I will have to get more than just one pair.

I just love walking around Merida and take photos of the buildings and doors. Discovering several street art pieces has been quite exciting this year!


We have been experiencing a cooler and windier season this year. There has not been a lot of swimming being done but I can't complain as the alternative is not to be considered.

This is me who never feels cold bundled up with a neighbour during a farewell Happy Hour for one of our NY friends!

Another creative day with some friends at Linda's house this time, produced some great things! I love shibori dyeing! I went a little crazy again dyeing anything I have white in site. I re-dyed my hat and large crochet centrepiece. They both turned out great! What a fun day with creative people.


This shows how the indigo dye oxidized in the air.

This is my favourite piece. I had Lucy a nearby seamstress make this linen dress that I then did shibori dyeing technique using a pvc pipe.

Lucy has been making me a variety of clothing with the wonderful fabric I have found in Merida. I can't wait to see what she finishes next. Once she is done I will post all of my collection..
