My sister who lives in Pennsylvania did FTD to send my Mother an arrangement here in Ajijic Mexico. Mom lives down in the village here. Anyway, I had to post a photo since I thought it was so funny to see how huge the arrangement is. Money really goes a long way on somethings down here and for sure it's flowers. But they are beautiful and my Mother did so appreciate it. I will take her out to one of the many wonderful restaurants down here on Sunday and we will have a gourmet meal with drinks for somewhere in the neighborhood of $300 pesos, which is roughly $28 US dollars. Another wonderful thing here in Ajijic Mexico!
Happy Mother's Day in advance to all you Mothers.
Sure wish that our construction job were finished and I could be sitting by the pool. Oh well about another 2 months and then it should be done. This is our warm season for Ajijic. but not too uncomfortable...no need for air conditioning as even at 85 it is not humid. We simply turn on the overhead fans and get a breeze...plus since we are at 6500 elevation up over the village we get a breeze off the lake. So no complaining here. We will enjoy.
We have what locals call rain birds. they are locust that come up out of the ground once a year and make noise to find their mates. Locals here predict when the rainy season will start by when you begin to hear the rain birds. They say that it is six weeks after you hear the first rain bird. So in six weeks our rainy season should start. Now when I say rainy season what that means is that it is sunny and beautiful all day and then at night the sky lights up with lighting over the lake and mountains and it rains at night. It is such a wonderful time of year....can't wait.
We just got news that our friends in Seattle finally sold their house. Yeah! It's been two years in the process. They have been wanting to move here to Ajijic Mexico for two years and have been trying to sell their house. We bought the house next door to us to "hold" it for them and have been renting it out to vacationing people for the 2.5 years but will be so happy to have them move here permanently. It will be so nice to have them up here on the mountain with us. They have been good friends for years. Now I have to go through the process of selling all the furnishings since they will be bringing their own stuff. Some effort involved but so worth it! Here's to my friends Gail and Darryl......woo hoo!
Once you reach goal weight you feel good that you accomplished it.....but the work really begins as you really have to work to not return to old bad habits. For me, it's the evenings when you want to eat ice cream and cookies and oh so many of the things that got you in trouble and put weight on you in the first place.
So once again tonight I could go nuts eatting junk, but will be good and eat yogurt and fruit. The good news is that I do not keep the bad stuff in the house and won't get in the car to go out and get it.
