Yesterday afternoon … was, well tough. I no longer had a headache or felt yuckie so I guess Elvira my evil twin had more room in there to start yelling. I prowled the kitchen … I decided on a hot cup of tea so I put the kettle on. Minutes later the fire alarm went off and there was smoke everywhere. Evidently … you need to turn the fire on under the tea kettle instead of … an empty cast iron skillet.
Then … I decided to press a few things in my studio … that’s my fancy word for my craft room. Iron on, timer set so I wouldn’t forget … geeeze … and on to pressing. I got the bright idea to smooth out my calendar book that went on our month-long vacation … some of the pages had gotten rumpled … I log hubby’s meds and sleep patterns along with CPAP numbers. Well, it’s not a good idea to run your iron across … the outside plastic cover … ask me how I know.
So … I spent time cleaning up the iron and then the skillet. Skillet is now re-cured.
I got myself that cup of hot tea … hubby over saw the stove operation. And lo and behold … my tea bag had this to say … just yesterday I posted my plan of success:
If “plan A” didn’t work …the alphabet has 25 more letters. ~Unknown
Well, at least the munchies went away.
Day 3 of our cruise we docked at Cozumel. DS and DIL negotiated the rental of a car … good thing DIL speaks Spanish. And good thing DS drove … OH MY. We drove to what was supposed to be a Mayan ruin. It was a … tourist trap. Bummer.
We then drove to a beach and the g-kids had a fabulous time making sand castles and playing in the waves.
We then re-grouped and came up with a plan to find another Mayan ruin. This time … OH MY. Unfortunately, DIL and 2 ½ yo stayed in the rental so 2 ½ could take a nap while the rest of us explored the ruin. There were several “native” people there that took a liking to us and taught the 8 and 6 yos certain words in Mayan. I don’t even speak proper English most the time … I speak Texan … and I don’t have an ear for learning other languages. I marveled at the g-kids yacking back and forth with the people.
It was very tranquil and calming there and I enjoyed it greatly walking from each of the sites. The g-kids giggled over the iguanas.
Back to the rental and DIL and 2 ½. Then … DS “drove” us back to the ship … OH MY.
And the food on the ship … OH, MY GOODNESS!!! More on this … later.
Change your mind … and the rest WILL follow.
