So much ME time

Some boys just never grow up and continue to play with squishy things like an octopus.

1 28 11  One of my biggest pleasures in Mexico is the amount of me time I have.  At home  I feel obligated to be doing something productive  and there is always something that needs my attention.  Here life is simple, no garden to tend and the most housekeeping I do is make the bed and a few dishes each day and the maid comes weekly do change out the linens and clean.  We eat one maybe two meals in most days and and one out some times more sometimes less.  It’s our big decision of the day.  Yesterday afternoon we spent our time with our neighbors at a beach side restaurant drinking beer &

mojito’s for me and visiting and shopping from the wandering vendors when we wanted to.  Very laid back afternoon.  Watched a DVD movie later that night.  I’ve managed to read 4 books on my kindle and will start a new one this morning.  At home I find very little time to read. I walk around town when I fell, do some shopping for gifts or groceries, have just enough language skills to as the necessary questions, I still have a little trouble with the money, I’ve mastered the paper money, but not so good with the coins.  The shop keepers don’t keep much change on hand and prefer exact change or close to it.

In just about an hour we are to set off for our “outback adventure” with an american guide/naturalist who is married to a Mexican lady and has lived here about 10 years.  I’m hoping to get some great pictures.  Signing off KO

I'm a traveler, not as frequently as I would like as I'm semi retired. I prefer that phrase to working part time. I would love to travel to new places, getting ready to do that as a solo traveler. For hobbies I make and sell stone & shell bird houses, garden and have joined a couple of hiking groups. I'm a reader and love my kindle. I still work some, I'm a Wedding Officiant and officiate at about 20 weddings a year, and also operate a small delivery service. Prior to my "semi retirement" I was in corrections and before that I owned and operated a bail bond agency. The Senior is no longer with me, his choice, and I am OK with that.

One thought on “So much ME time”

  1. Kathy, your Zihuathyme Blog is interesting. I found it (by accident)after hunting all over. Now I can hear about mexico first hand. The waterfall slide would be fun, even 10 years ago but not just now. Some of your pix are really beautiful. Love when you show the st. where you live. Looking forward to pictures from the blue morpho eco tour!….Liz ps how did the dentist go
