Sisters visit

Tuesday, June 19, 2012



We have had a good visit with the sisters. It is their last day today. A bit cloudy today but they don't mind. I think it has been a really nice visit. I took a break yesterday and didn't join in the drinks and Mexican food. My body is thanking me today. One sister requested that I make my homemade ceasar salad so I think I will try and get my act together and do that on their last day. We will see. I really don't cook much anymore as I just don't like it. but what a compliment that they rave about my salad. I make it totally from scratch.
Hope all my sparks buddies are doing well.
Have a terrific day.
Sallie

    Looks like you are all having a good time. I sure you are always so gracious and they love visiting you. A healthy salad is probably appealing to them also, sounds like they are ready for some really good stuff.

    Thanx for sharing the pics! Looks like everyone is having a great time. For me, nothing better than a ceasar salad with lots of anchovies and parm cheese! Glad you had a good visit with family.

Happy Monday!

Monday, June 18, 2012

Hope everyone had a nice Father's Day yesterday. I had special ordered 3 orders of fried oysters at our favorite seafood place here in Ajijic. My FIL and his two daughter all wanted them. They turned out great and all were happy. The chef there is so wonderful. My husband and I always have the tappas meal where the chef just makes anything that is fresh and brings it out. Delicious! Everything was really good. We had invited our neighbors to join us. They showed up but had been drinking all day so not so good. We still love them though.
I have already told everyone that I won't be joining them for dinner tonight as I need a day of light eating. The good news is that they all know me well and understand that I can't keep up with all of them eating and drinking so much. So looking forward to a low calorie, low fat, and good food day!
Hope you all have a great week.
Make it a great day!
Sallie

    Your day sounds nice. Good for you not joining in the heavy eating and drinking. I find the social life in Mexico play havoc with my weight, even when I try to be careful.

Happy Father's Day!

Sunday, June 17, 2012

As I mentioned before, my FIL is going to be very happy today to have his 3 grown children with him to celebrate. And I order his favorite meal which you have to order a head of time......fried oysters. His two daughters will join him with those but my husband and I will not. We will have the wonderful grilled seafood platter with my favorite monk fish. Taste like lobster. I am going to try and not even have my beers today as I just feel better when I don't drink at all. Yesterday I was so tired as we all had gone out the night before to our favorite steak house and I was weak and had 2 margaritas. Just can't do that anymore. but today I feel great as I ate very light yesterday and didn't drink.
Happy Father's Day to all my sparks buddy Daddy's.
Have a terrific day.
Sallie

    How great your FIL has all his kids with hom today, and you too. I love Monk fish. Did you ever go to Rover's in Seattle? That's where I first ate it. But I also like oysters. Have a great day!

    Sorry you & your husband will not be able to join in today's celebration of your husband's Father's Day. I have never had Monk fish, & I have never had margaritas. It has been 2 years since I had a drink, that was at a wedding, if I had one now I would probably feel tipsy, that is how I felt at the wedding it was 5 years before when I had one.Every one was teasing me because they know I do not drink. We have a beautiful breezy sunny day today here in Pa. Unfortunately we are to get in the 90's this week & muggy I cannot stand that weather!!!! Be happy you are where you are!!!! Take care Sallie

Tired today

Saturday, June 16, 2012

It's catching up with me....out of my routine. Took the day off today from going out to eat with DH sisters. he did too. they took their Dad out though so that was nice.
I will go to the seafood place though tomorrow for Father's Day. It will be the first time in many, many years that my FIL has 3 of his kids with him for Father's Day. Usually it's just my DH and me.
Will be fun.
hope all my sparks buddies are doing great.
For those of you who are fathers...do have a terrific Father's Day.
Sallie

The rainy season has begun.

Friday, June 15, 2012



I love the rainy season as things really start to get green and lush. And the storms out over the lake are awesome! The only problem is sometimes we end up without power. So yesterday we were out for about 5 hours. We have a generator so that helps, especially when you have a house full of company.
Today though this are up and running just fine.
Our neighbor and friend has a weather station on his roof and captured these photos on the storm.
Hope all my sparks friends are having a great day.

    Great pictures! Enjoy the rain for a while - a nice change. We could do with some here to help with the wildfires and to dampen down the dust.

    The pictures almost look like those in MN the last few days we have had thunderstorms and winds some fascinating lighting and cloud pictures
We are to have rain all week but it will be nice for Fathers Day and the rain will sure help with the water bill so we do not have to water the gardens and lawn
Have visited just across the border into Mexico so really do not know the country
Our granddaughter spent one semester of college at the U of Mexico and brought back many beautiful pictures
Have a great day

    Beautiful shots. We are having lots of rain in our area now also. Know how it is without electricity for a few hours. This has happened here several times in the last two weeks. "Enjoy your company

    Great pictures - I enjoyed looking at them but I'm not at all a fan of lightning. I got knocked out once when I was a kid, looking outside the sliding door when a bolt hit a tree just outside where I was standing. A year after that, a close friend of mine and her brother were killed by lightning. Her sister was horribly disfigured by the same strike - so it really makes me very uneasy when it starts striking like that. But I still like PICTURES of it - a safe way to enjoy the show!

    What a-MA-zing pictures, Sallie! Your friend did a remarkable job at capturing that lightning at just the right moment - wow! I remember rainy season well; it used to always start raining right at 3:30 PM in Mexico City :) Thought of you today while having my "blowout meal" at the buffet, lol! Still at goal weight - it's working. Here's to uninterrupted electrical power for you, too!

    Great pictures! We are in our Hurricane season, which means a lot of rain with or without the hurricanes. Hope yours can be as scattered as it is here. Can rain in the front yard and be dry in the back yard. Usually just scattered showers, but I do not handle the all day rains well, so it is good the are not frequent. I think you have lower humidity. I am on the Gulf and it gets pretty humid here in the Tampa Bay area.
