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.  If you click on the peictures the caption will show Signing off KO

I'm a traveler, not as frequently as I would like , but I plan on doing more. After working full time at Mount Rainier National Park during the summer of 22 I have decided to retire completely and forever. Prior to that I was semi retired as a Wedding Officiant I officiated at about 20 weddings a season, and with my small delivery service I handled the distribution of a local high-quality Home and Garden magazine . Prior to my "semi retirement" I was in corrections and before that I owned and operated a bail bond agency. I now plan to travel to new places and exciting places, getting ready to do that as a solo as the Senior is no longer with me, his choice, and I am OK with that. For hobbies I'm a reader and love my kindle. And I enjoy writing.

  1. Welcome home! I look forward to “being” in Zihua again through your post! We found your new apartment building last June, recognizing it through your pictures.☺ I’ll be there for a week in February, looking for a place of our own to move next Fall permanently!! Please keep your ears open for me, since you know so many people there. 😉


  2. Love reading your posts and have been watching your blog for your return! Can’t wait until we are back but it will be for only 2 weeks, late Jan. to Feb. We have snow and temps in single digits today (Minneapolis, MN) so hoping that longer stays will be coming. My Senor is ready to go today but the daughter and grandchildren keep us close. Will watch daily on your updates and hope to meet you when we get there!
