Day 2 - yoga
Monday, December 21, 2009      3 comments

I brought my computer over to the other house and did episode 1 of Namaste yoga - "exalted warrior" It felt great to be back :) The trick is to get up before everybody else so I have the peace and space to do them. Yesterday DD and I walked t... Read more

Today we're picking DD up at the airport in Hermosillo. It's so exciting - she's never been here and I hope she loves it as much as we do. The new furniture was delivered yesterday and it looks beautiful in our place. I cleaned my kitchen, pu... Read more

Yesterday was a very productive day. Not the way I planned it - my kitchen still needs doing but I had more success at the veggie stand and the (tiny!) grocery store and in the afternoon we found a bed and livingroom furniture locally. We should... Read more
Kitchen and groceries
Thursday, December 17, 2009      3 comments

Today I need to get my head around meal-planning - not my favorite thing in the world. I'm used to living in the boonies, having a large pantry and freezer stocked with months of supplies and only shopping twice a month to replenish fresh stuff ... Read more
Back from Hermosillo

Today we went over to the "big town", we found a lovely dining room set and quite a few bits and pieces on our list. I feel we're making real progress, even though the dining set won't be available to pick up in about 6 weeks - that seems to be ... Read more
Getting adjusted to the new office
Tuesday, December 15, 2009      1 comments

i got some work done yesterday and today... definitely interesting and certainly frustrating at times. We still have electric spikes, the surge protector is not installed yet (manana??), working with numbers on a laptop keyboard, not being able ... Read more
Back to work

We have the office set up in one of the bedrooms and today is a work day. It's going to be quite a challenge doing everything remotely and not having my trusty filing cabinets close by. Going paperless is a huge change for me and quite scary... ... Read more
Ran out of A-Z's
Sunday, December 13, 2009      3 comments

It's official! I've been here too long - I've worked my way through all he A-Z articles... or rather A-Y minus Q :) The sad news is that I'm nowhere closer to goal that when I started :( The good news - I've met so many wonderful people he... Read more
Practising patience
Saturday, December 12, 2009      2 comments

Things move at a slower pace here and after 20 years in the States I've noticed how used we are to having things done instantly. It's an instant society - not like the Middle East and Cyprus where we lived in the 80's. I have to change my mindse... Read more
Unpacked the scales
Friday, December 11, 2009      3 comments

This morning I unpacked the scales and was brave enough to step on them... My weight was the same as the day we left, that's the good news, the bad news is that I was way up then :( higher than when I started Sparkpeople nearly 2 years ago. T... Read more

Slept like a log last night after traveling for 3 days to get here... This morning we're having a slow start. We're making a list and will go into town later on and get sorted out. The list is getting rather long....... Read more
Home from home

We crossed the border at noon and rolled into San Carlos 4:15. The new house is far from complete and we're staying in a rental next door. The truck is unloaded, we've had dinner and picked up a few groceries. We'll take stock tomorrow. At least... Read more
Snowy travels
Tuesday, December 08, 2009      5 comments

We left Arboles at 12:30, by which time it was still snowing hard and we had 8" on the ground. DH had to plow the drive before we could get out and loading the truck in the snow was interesting to say the least. Because of the weather we decided... Read more

We woke up to an inch of snow and it's still coming down. We still plan to leave today but take an alternate route. Rather than go through AZ we'll go south through Albuquerque, take the 25 down and pick up the 10 to Tuscon. It's about an hour l... Read more
