GETTING SETTLED

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 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. 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!
