Easter Diner out with Mom, husband and his Dad here in Mexico.

Sunday, April 04, 2010

We went to a wonderful seafood place that you order their special grill of the day for four people. They bring out this big grill plate with four different grilled fishes and all kinds of different sauces you can add. It comes with salad and Red peppers topped with balsamic vinegar.....all so great. I indulged in 2 beers as well but exercised well today. Hiked with the dogs and did so far 11,000 steps therefore the damage shouldn't be too bad. They don't have the Easter bunny or candies that are typical of the states so no temptation there. Easter is truly a religious holiday here. No jelly beans, coconut eggs, marshmallow chicks, etc. In fact there candy here is weird and I don't like it....so that is good no temptation. but back to no beers tomorrow and more exercise to be sure no weight gain.
Hope everyone had a wonderful Easter.

    You look gorgeous - I love your top! I wondered if you were near the earthquake that hit yesterday...but just looked at your page and saw that you're not...or at least I hope not. I called my Dad yesterday as he lives in Todo Santos and was relieved to hear, he didn't even know an earthquake had hit!! lol...he was outside in his garden tootling away. You look wonderful....keep up the great work!

It's fun to take a day just for yourself.

Saturday, April 03, 2010

Still have more to do to finalize Mom's move...still about 3 car loads left to move but she has everything she needs and so today I took a day off. Walked the dogs 3.5 miles and took a ride with husband then we watched an old movie on TV and I am thinking about another siesta. Life is good.

Passion Play in our little village is a big event this time of year.

Friday, April 02, 2010

Our cobblestone streets in our little village really come alive for several days with the Passion Play. Our Mexican community goes all out with a fabulous play and the enactment of Christ carrying the cross up the mountain. The actor here portraying Christ carries a real wooden cross up through the cobblestone streets up the mountain where he is hung. He is of course accompanied by Mexican actors dressed in Roman attire. For anyone more interested in viewing some photos of this event, here is a site that captures it well. All the villagers as well as many families from Guadalajara attend this blessed event.

Mom gettting settled in

Thursday, April 01, 2010

Worked all day again today getting more of Mom's things moved....but progress is being made. she now has her vonage phone, and internet, as well as TV. Feels good to work hard all day and have her be so happy. then my honey took me out for diner and since I am a little under goal weight...been so busy working that I am down to 104, so had thin crust pizza with just sauce and small amount of cheese and then 2 of my favorite beers. Anyway, great day and I don't thing the pizza and beer will hurt me too much cause I moved from sun up to sun down!

    You are such a great daughter! As for the pizza and beer, you did great, too! Sometimes a little splurge is just what you need to stay on track, especially when you're trying to maintain your weight.
