The Senor and I often laugh about how w used to spend one week here scurrying around trying to do everything in one week and now it takes a full week just to get settled in. The beach will be there when we are ready.
We needed extra storage space in our bathroom and bought an over the toilet frees standing wire shelf and a separate shelving unit. Starting yesterday and on to today we worked on the wire unit that had no parts labeled and managed to get the Senor reverting to his former Navy language so we set it aside and assembled the shelving unit. Now it is possible to walk into the bathroom without tripping.
I did a morning run on Waldo’s, the mexican equivalent of our dollar stores. Picked up trash baskets storage containers and such. In the afternoon I headed to the Mercado. If you want or need it, it can be found there, but you need to search and it helps to speak some spanish, mine is quite limited, but I managed to pick up a hammer and a screwdriver, a cooking pot, 4 3 prong electrical adapters, 2 chicken legs freshly amputated, 30 fresh shrimp, peeled and deveined, right before my eyes, mushrooms, garlic, onions potatoes, tomatoes, lettuce and those super yummy little bananas.
Tomorrow we tackle the wire rack. Then we start shopping for the big items, namely a very large screen TV. As most of you know the Senor is a bit TV addicted so this is very important. The other item is a king size bed. We are currently sleeping in what the mexicans call a “matrimonial” size bed, we call it a double bed. It’s cozy and it is comfortable, but with the weather here bigger is definitely better.And just to make any of you who are north of th boarder envious it is 8:30 at night I am typing this on our balcony and it is a balmy 79 degrees.
