Ok I have to confess, Bless me father, no, no, not that kind of confession, just time to confess a few things, or should I say admit to a few things. First Confession, when we first moved here I would wake up in the morning and say to myself, self, what the hell are you doing in Mexico, I mean are you crazy? Did you make a mistake by moving here, did we give up to much to make this change? Now I don't ask myself that question anymore, why you ask? good question. I believe that it has to do with getting adjusted to life here, and making new friends. My friend Elaine was kind enough to invite me into her circle of friends, we get together for ladies night, everyone brings something to eat, and we play Mexican train (a domino game) through this group I met Sherry (a horse lover ) and she introduced me to her friends, (some are on my post on horseback riding) . A few of us even got together and went to the movies. On Wednesday night it only costs $2.00 !!! Last week Billy and I were out, doing errands and he ran into two of his card playing buddies, and the other night, we were out walking, and we ran into a couple that we just met at a pot luck supper, it was held where we will be living in October, so they will be new neighbors . Did I mention that Ajijic is a small town! So going out, and seeing people that you know helps, at least it does for us. 2nd Confession ! I did not love it here right away, now some people that you talk to say "oh I knew right away that I wanted to live here", not me ! I liked it, and I liked it enough to move here and give it a try, I can say that I loved Florida right away, but as time went by things change and so did we, anyway getting back to here, I am slowly learning to love it here, which I think in the long run may be better for me. 3rd Confession I no longer get up in the morning and complain if the sun is not out, because , I now know that more often than not, at some point during the day,the sun will come out. Of course that means I might start out the morning dressed in jeans and tee shirt, and then I will have to change into my shorts, oh how awful is that ? 4th Confession I love the mountains here, they are changing all the time, right now they are a beautiful dark green, and sometimes they have clouds just sitting on top of them, last night we had a storm come through,and you could watch the mountains dissapear from view, just so different from Florida. Hard to believe that on August 1st we have been here 3 months ! Where did the time go ? It is just flying by ! 5th Confession I love the rolls here, now I blame my mother for that one, she loved her bread too, and I think I may have picked up that gene, I like them so much that the bathroom scale is trying to tell me that it is time to stop eating those, warm, soft, delicious babies, I'll let you know if that happens! Speaking of eating, yesterday Billy and I stopped at one of the many local roadside restaurants for some lunch, the woman gave us a sample of the meat she was using and it was delicious, so he ordered the soup and I had two tacos, we finish eating, and I look over at the sign on the side of the building, and there is a picture of a goat on it, I said to Billy I think we just had our first meal of goat meat! when we paid our bill we asked the girl, in our limited Spanish, was that goat meat? and she said Si, now I know some of you are saying oh gross !!! let me tell you it was really good, and would I eat it again? Si ! 6th Confession, there are still people, places, and things that I miss, but when I find myself going there, I try and change my thoughts, or I try looking at it from a different angle. I know nothing good can come from dwelling on the past, so I try not to go there. All we have is the present moment, so I practice staying in it, not easy to do, that is why it takes practice. 7Th Confession, this is a good one, I have learned how to relax, it is so awesome, no more getting up to an alarm clock, I can go to bed when I feel like it, why last week I even ate dessert before dinner ! ( I am turning into a real Rebel ) LOL !!! Well my last confession, I wrote this while I was relaxing on the lounger, in the sun, so now I have to get my warm, relaxed body upstairs to type it, so that you all can read it, and as you can see I did just that! Adios !
Soooo Good, too Good !!!
