Ecco Tianquis, Swimming with the ladies and Fabric

Saturday Market

My Mexican life has settled into a fairly normal pattern, I usually visit the Eco Tianquis Saturday Morning Market where I can find home grown produce, bread, pastries, hand crafted jewelry, purses, embroidery work and organic foods all done by local folks. Usually there is entertainment, music and/or dancers. There are bins for my recyclablesIMG_0582.jpg, I donate what I can to the food bank and visit with friends.  It’s a lovely way to start a Saturday.

Friday was the annual street fair on Calle Adelita, with food, auctions and dancing in the streets  I really enjoyed the bands, but was just too crowded for me.  But that’s OK as it was a fund raiser for both the home for the elderly and the orphanage and it raised a lot of money for those worth while projects.

Sunday usually finds me at Escollera the lovely infinity pool swimming with the ladies, when you are single the group dynamics change so I have really enjoyed these Sundays.IMG_0593.jpg

The fabric store in Zihuatanejo is one of my favorite places to visit.  I can spend hours perusing the multitude of fabrics they have.  I have never seen such a large display of home decorating fabrics and the prices are dirt cheap in comparison to my fabric.jpg
home fabric store I purchased fabric to recover my 2 bar stools at home, total cost is equivelant to $6.37 US at home 2 yards would have cost between $20-40. Now I’m trying to decide which fabric for my table runners.IMG_0581.jpgIMG_0580 fabric.jpg

I had a nice sewing project for my friend Brenda, she needed removable seat covers for cushions for the stools in her bar, aptly named “Brenda’s Bar”.  People will stay longer if they have comfortable seating, so I made 10 of them for her she has another friend who will do the rest.

Monday I’m going snorkeling at Ixtapa island with friends, tomorrow is Spanish class and in the evening a birthday party to attend.  Life is much more social here, warm, relaxing, and friendly.  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.
