Another day in Paradise

Had breakfast with carol this morning, a local lady who really knows the area.  We had asked her to meet with us as she recently took the trip to Morelia to see the Monarch Butterflies and we needed to pick her brain so we would know how to accomplish this.  We learned a lot and really appreciate the help.  We’ve made our hotel reservations and will reserve our bus tickets tomorrow.  We are going on a first class bus, no chickens and pigs! Will be going on Jan 31 for 3 days.  Next was a trip to the Mercado for fresh fruits, veggies and eggs.  I’m loving the papayas and mangos.  On the way back picked up bread, soft drinks, and wine.

Sure love my rolling shopping cart.  Then  a short siesta and on to Ixtapa for dinner and a movie and not in that order.  Got there way before movie time so we decided that ice cream would be in order.  I ordered a coffee ice cream and the senor ordered orange ice cream.  Mine came already frozen in a tall sunday glass and his was frozen in an actual orange.  He said it tasted like a creamcicle.  They had many interesting flavor including corn.  So I had to ask for a taste as never in my life have I ever heard or thought of corn flavored ice cream. It tasted good, I couldn’t pick up the corn taste, but the senor said he could, but then I never eat corn and the Senor does quite frequently.

We saw “The Girl With The Dragon Tatoo”, it was good, and true enough to the book. While at the movies I saw a lady with a pair of pants that I liked, asked her where she got them and following the movie and dinner went and got the pants.  Lucky me they were even on sale.  We had dinner at Debra’s and Mama Norma’s, or maybe it’s the other way around.  The Senor had been wanting spaghetti, me I just want fish and or avocados or both Just another easy living day in paradise, where you never need a sweater or coat or mittens.  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 travel to new places, my husband Doyle, not as adventurous as I is more comfortable with the tried and true. Thus we have fallen into a routine (not a rut) of going to Zihuatanejo for 3 months January and February, March. Pendleton Oregon for the Round Up. Plus numerous short trips. We are "RVers". For hobbies I make and sell stone & shell bird houses, garden and read my new kindle. I'm a Wedding Officiant and officiate at about 40 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, In 2016 My husband began chemo for Chronic lymphoma Leukemia, while doing well this has changed some of our travel habits. Relaxing in Mexico suits him well, for that I am thankful. KO
