Where in the world is that Chile Lady?

Some of you might be looking for me with my chile basket out at the Taos Gorge Bridge.  How I miss that place, my friends and you tourists that kept coming back every year. Yep, we sold our little cabin on the edge of the Carson National Forest and headed north.  It was going home for me....something that I had always planned to do finally crept up on me.  Moving ...and I'll keep this short.... is not for senior citizens..... but you can rest assured that I did not leave New Mexico without a car loaded with chile and my chile connections.  We moved into our garage, heated but still a garage and waited for renters to move out of the little house so we could move in.  Now we are situated along the bay in Bay View, Washington slowly  putting our lives back together.  My little  brother hauled my dad's John Deere riding mower over,  gave me a five minute lesson and I was re-initiated into the life of a Washingtonian.  That wasn't part of my life in New Mexico.   I managed to get the appropriate licenses and found a kitchen in the neighborhood so I'm in the chile business now in Washington.  Where will you find me?  On Saturdays I sell my Rio Grande Chile Spice Mix at the Anacortes Farmers Market.  Some of you may be familiar with this small town by the bay.  You can catch a ferry to Vancouver Island and the San Juan islands here.   Of course here I am at riograndechile.com as usual ready to take your orders for Rio Grande Chile Spice Mix.  I might come up with another idea too.  The wheels are still turning.
