Sunday Sweet Sunday, With Nothing To Do

Apples, bannanas, grapes and papayas

That is nothing we have to do, I don’t swim on the weekends so we had a leisurely lovely breakfast on the balcony while listening to the church bells calling the faithful. Surprisingly this is the first time we have heard the bells. The Senor is always the breakfast cook and this morning he out did himself with this marvelous fruit bowl. It would be such a healthy breakfast if we hadn’t have stuffed ourselves.

Our pigeon bathing across the street in a “tinaco”

Our morning entertainment was watching our pigeon take a bath in the neighbors water supply “tinaco”.  This is a daily event that truly amuses me.  But I have checked out the tinacos on our roof and know they are covered, no bathing birds there.

 another sight that amuses me is a half block away on about the 3rd floor roof is what I believe is an old cement rooftop cistern that has taken on a new life as a swimming hole. Several times I have seen kids whooping and splashing in it.

So much of Mexico is interesting and no matter how frequently I see it it never ceases to amaze and amuse me. Almost every evening there will be a couple of restaurants roasting this cut of pork over an open fire and continuing to

A day or so ago I noticed the sail boat the  PATRICIA BELLE was anchored in the bay. She was hand built by the captain just a couple of

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

  1. Love reading your blog and how it makes me feel closer to our favorite place to be. We even checked out your apartments a few years ago as a possible place to stay. Right now we are only coming in June for 2 wks. while we are still teaching. Retirement is a few years away yet, but then we might be your neighbors someday!:-) The point of this note is to tell you the mystery meat is pork, used to make tacos al pastor. We love eating from the very place in your picture! Your husband should try one…. a little of the marinated pork, grilled pineapple pieces, cilantro and onions and it’s divine! Happy New Year and keep writing! Cold in Wisconsin, Judy
