The Senor in Shoping Mode

The Senor is not much of a “shopper”, more of a buyer. Walk in the store, see it, buy it walk out. I on the other hand would want to look in every store, compare prices, colors etc.  But he has done well here, managed to look in several stores before his mind was made up.  Our shopping excursions have taken us to the big mexican one stop shopping stores, The Bodega,  Mega Soriana and Copell, a Canadian based store that the Senior favored  but he ended up purchasing at a smaller  local  mexican store.  I like to shop local when we can.

Our first few days here we were very cozy sleeping  on a ” matrimonial” sized bed, but

with this warm weather, a king bed is more comfortable for us. Our apartment came furnished with 4 comfortable chairs, but the Senor is now is stretched out on his new sofa I’m happy with the chairs we have, but am on the look out for a foot stool.

The kitchen is a good kitchen to work in, still needs a few things, mainly curtains and under counter curtains.

We have one last major purchase to make, replacing the 19 inch tv with a BIG screen. But he will wait for “Buen Fin” the Mexican equivalent of our black Friday.  It falls the weekend prior to Mexican Revolution Day, Nov 20th.  We are hoping for some excellent prices.

Our balcony is just 3 feet wide and 25 ft long  and affords us lovely insight into Mexican street life. It is quite different from our previous balcony that was over a pedestrian street with many restaurants and bars. We no longer have loud thumping music all night long and little traffic in the evening.  We still enjoy our meals outside on the balcony, but as we are protected from the afternoon sun here so we can even eat lunch outside.  We are anxious to do some balcony gardening.

We have been here a week and about all we have done is shop trying to get settled in.  I have hardly had time to read.  The good thing is our money has been running about 19 pesos to $1, and I’m getting ready to decorate.  I managed to get all our new apartment pictures into an album, but as usual I can’t find the album in computer only individual pictures.  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. Kathleen, we want it back! You took it with you! You and the “Senor” took our warm weather with you and left us in the cold. We want our warm weather back, please. The only warm place is the pool. Really enjoy your blog. Muncho Grasses! Drake and Becky
    PS, can hardly wait until you and the “Senor” being us spring. Looking forward to more of your adventures.
