Just a quick reminder that Tuesday, February 14 is the annual Las Hermanas Valentine’s Day Brunch. Start time is 9:30 a.m. Same place as always: Crones’ Cove, EDR, Los Viajeros Norte, #31-13 off of Rd 23. Bring yourselves and your appetite. Sharron will be tending the Bloody Baja Bar. If that’s not your cup of tea…bring your own tea. Get in touch with one of the gals from LVS or LVN if you have any questions.
This year we will be selling RAFFLE TICKETS to help support the new HOSPITAL that is underway in LOS ARCOS area. Tickets are $5 or 100p each. We hope that everyone will plan on purchasing at least one ticket for the cause. Prizes are HUGELY terrific. Probably the best prizes on the Baja. Many, many people will tell you that they are.
You will be so happy if you win one off these prizes:
A gas stove (perfect for a solar casita),
A low-energy electric refrigerator (perfect for a solar casita),
A low-energy television set (perfect for a solar casita).
😉 Please help the women of the Los Arcos area by supporting this cause.
Set your sites on Tuesday, February 14! The sisters of LVS and LVN will, once again, bring you a morning of good food and camaraderie to celebrate V-Day! Start time is 9:30 a.m. Same place as always: Crones’ Cove, EDR, Los Viajeros Norte, #31-13 off of Rd 23. Bring yourselves and your appetite. Lynda and Sharron will host the “Bloody Baja” table, so, if that’s not your cup of tea…bring your own tea. Get in touch with one of the gals from LVS or LVN if you have any questions.
PS Some gals have indicated that they want to contribute something to the feast. If you have something special you would like to prepare, great! But, if not, no worries! Just bring yourself!
Donations– This year we will be taking donations to go toward the San Felipe International Hospital. Local sources report that six women from the Los Arcos area died in childbirth last year because of insufficient local medical care.
Mark Your Calendars for TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 14!
This year’s Las Hermanas del Desierto Valentine’s Day Brunch was well attended by some 25 women from the San Felipe area. The weather was perfect for an outdoor event: periods of overcast turning to full sunshine and temps in the mid 70’s. There were a few women friends who couldn’t make it this year—you know who you are, and, you were missed!
LVS’s Sharron and Lynda set up the bar and served their famous Canadian-style “bloody Caesars.” MUCHAS GRACIAS, gals!
The brunch spread included pancakes, bacon, corn bread, fruit salad, Meg’s famous quiche, apple-walnut bread, and Lisbeth’s heart-stopping oven baked French toast. Big thank you to all the gals from LVS an LVN (and guests) for the great brunch: Liz, Kathy, Carol, Jayna, Meg, Lisbeth, Donna, Karen, and Pamelid. It is doubtful that anyone went away from the table hungry. Good job North and South LV-EDR neighborhoods!
This year’s brunch also marked the initiation of Lisbeth and Linda’s new screen room. Great shade and a comfortable place to escape the flies!
Susan and Alice set up their “No-Bad-Days” T-shirt concession for all of us to peruse before brunch. Great bargain basement prices, I might add! Most of the proceeds will go to help the San Felipe women’s rowing team and V.I.V.A., the SF dog rescue/spay/neuter program.
Once again, our community V-day brunch was a wonderful chance to get together, relax, and catch-up as the 2014-2015 winter season begins its downward swing.
Thanks everyone, for making it so special!
Susan and Alice will be selling their “No-Bad-Days” T-Shirts at the Brunch. These make great reminders of why we have chosen to be here! So, pack a few extra pesos with you! A portion of the proceeds will go to support a local charity.
The following is the schedule for the Sweet Spot for the remainder of the year. Looks as if they are going to have some very wonderful meals/events. If anyone wants to organize a group get together around any of these events, please indicate your interest here.

Today a group of 15 of us met up at the Road Runner Cafe to say good-bye to Jan and Carol. They are headed back to Payson, Arizona, where they have their summer home. We were all sad to see them go. We hope that next year they will be able to come and stay longer.
The Road Runner was a hopping place. About half of the group ordered the Sunday Eggs Benedict Special. Even with two large groups of us (there was also a church group reunion occurring simultaneously), the Road Runner staff put on their roller-skates and did their usual stellar job of keepingup with everyone! Five triangles for the Road Runner!
