TWAS THE DAY AFTER CHRISTMAS

Christmas in Mexico has been, fun, interesting and very different.  There isn’t the “in your face” commercialism, not on the TV, not in the stores, and certainly not in the tiendas, the little shops.  I had to look long and hard to find some interesting Christmas ornaments to bring home to my family.  The big Comercial had the standard balls and a few

cheap decorations, but nothing special.  But I did pursue and found some nice ones.  Christmas trees here are interesting,

many are quite creative.  I was disappointed that the church bell seems not to be working this year, with the church just round the corner I usually hear them.  I misses that. We spent Christmas day much in our usual way, the Senor watching television, I went for  walk, visited with friends at one of the beach front restaurants, feed the chickens, and found  sweet street dog to

give our left overs to.  The day was overcast at first then changed to sun, we ended our day watching  movie just like we would have at home.  But this time we watched on the computer transferred to the TV instead of going out to a theater.  there are 2 theatres here, but none showing anything we liked in a language we could understand.

For the past several days there have been programs t the plaza, they last until 10 or sometimes later.  None on Christmas eve as it would have been rained out.  There is music, comedians and children programs and because of the mexicans love of loud speakers they can be heard from our balcony loud and clear.  When it’s music it’s nice, but the comedians and other speakers tend to be a bit annoying.  Last night I decided to go see hat the action was as it didn’t appear to be to busy.  I’m not  fan of tight crowds.  Lots going on but not jam-packed but they little battery powered cars for kids to rent and ride around all over the plaza.  to me it looked those carnival bumper cars turned out in public, with kids

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
