I’ve started my Spanish classes and as always it is much easier to do the written work than the oral work. I go 3 days a week with private instruction. I think I’m making progress but it’s a lot to try to remember.

My swimming occupies two other mornings each week and I’m hanging in with 10-12 laps each day and a mile plus walk back home. I do run some errands on the way back. I’m thinking that is adequate.

I still have lunch weekly with some local ladies, swim with friends at Escollera, some beach time at Maderas and have an occasion dinner out with friends. Pretty much the same only at a slower pace.

Since I now have my residency I have acquired a dermatologist for those annual skin checks, and will be setting up an appointment with an internist in the next few weeks for a review of medicines and general health check up and to see if he recommends a cardiologist. Everyday just goes on.

Blossoms on my tomato plants

The weather is slowly warming up, int’s now in the the 90’s, or 32 as they would say here. I need to learn Celsius. Damn one more thing to learn! I’m finding I have the fans in my apartment going more and more. Still don’t need the air conditioner on. I’m no longer able to eat dinner on my balcony as the sun has shifted and now it is full on sun from 3 PM on. My tomato plants are a good 2 feet tall and noticed the first blossoms this morning. I find it incredible to have tomato blossoms in early May. Back in Washington you might not even have planted your tomato starts, and these I planted from seed, not starts. I’m excited!

Life is moving on at a slightly slower pace than during the season, i miss my snow bird friends but there are quite a few of us full timers, we were 8 or 9 at our last Ladies Lunch. Life is good in warm and wonderful Zihuatanejo. 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.
