WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO

After 2 week here in Zihuatanejo I am settling into a bit of a routine. I’m an early riser, I like to enjoy the sunrise from the balcony, take my morning supplements and OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA swim 4-5 laps out and around the blue sailboat anchored there.It’s not as long as I  swim at home but I  feel  the walk makes up for it.  On my way back I stop for coffee at La Tregua. Why do I do this.  Fear!  Fear of gaining weight and fear of feeling old.  Now I don’t  mind being old, for that matter I rather enjoy the many privileges of being old, one of which is being semi retired giving me the luxury of time to be able be here.  But let me tell you I  don’t want to feel old, I would prefer not to look old, but I can handle that, I just don’t want to feel old. So I’ll  swim, I’ll dance and participate in life rather than being a spectator for as long as I can.

After my swim i  find a place to stop for coffee, this past week it has been La Tregua where the kind staff pours coffee from beautiful pitcher. As I return”a la casa” the Senor is rising and is ready to cook my breakfast.  In 18 years I OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAhave never cooked his breakfast, he cooks for me.  .  After showering and dressing I’m ready for the day. Today I need to go to the fish market and get a white fish fillet for a fish dish I have mastered at home.  This is a big deal as I’m not much of a cook.  I’m supposed to have “cananelli beans” per recipe, but I’m using some white beans I found in El Mercado.  If it turns out poorly, I guess I’ll blame the beans.

It’s also manicure day, I should have had my nails cut at the first manicure, but vanity prevailed and I thought I could let them be long as I’m not working or gardening.  Big mistake!  Include a short siesta , fixing dinner and that will just about take care of this day.image

I’s just amazing how busy a vacation day can be.  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
