Cinco de Mayo

Today I celebrate the traditions and the heritage
of Mexico.

I know very little about the history and the customs of the Mexican people.

I am beginning to learn a little.

I am listening to a mariachi band as I do my morning chores.
I am learning about their instruments, the guitarron and the vihuela.
I am learning about corridos, the Mexican folk song.

Today as I care for the birds and the butterflies I will wear my sombrero.
Happy Cinco de Mayo!

Happy Cinco de Mayo to you too. We are having a Mexico kind of day here with pure sunshine.

Dear Lisa,
It is fun to read about other cultures and to celebrate their heritage.
It is so beautiful here; not too hot or too cold...just right.
Enjoy your sunshine.
