This is Christmas, Puerto Rican Style.
The houses the way they were back then. Who knows, maybe in the mountains we still have friends and family who live in wood homes like this. I love them.
Mom and Ana, family friend and neigbor
Isn't She Lovely? It's mami modeling a dress and sandal on the day I arrived. She's a beautiful 73 year old Lady.
Mom has lots of treasured photos of yester years and present in this room. She's very organized and enjoys displaying the things and those she loves. There's a craft table with things I've sent her for crafting.
Sorry, this precious beauty didn't make it to the previous posting. But I know you'll enjoy it. It's just lovely.
These little guys are truly what we call Hot Peppers. We know it as "Pique". Whoooo, this stuff will clear your sinuses and then some. Mom has a small tree in the side of the house where they grow.
|Here she's making a bottle of Pique (Hot Souce) for my uncle. I believe the mixture is vinagar.|
This is Passion Fruit known in spanish as "Parcha". A very good fruit for refreshing and lowering high blood pressure.
