What I Know For Sure ?

What I know for sure? Yes I know I am using a line from Oprah. Speaking of Oprah did anyone see her last show? I thought it was just perfect. I wonder how she decided what to talk about. I used to catch her show every once in awhile, and I get her magazine, yes I can have that delivered here in Mexico!

I know for sure that I need to start speaking Spanish, I was out with a friend the other day and she said she has never heard me say anything in Spanish, so I said well that's not good. I should have been a smart ass and said something in Spanish. I do know some Spanish I guess I am still afraid to open my mouth and speak it. I do practice with Billy, his Spanish is coming along. I have a few friends who can teach me it and I think it is time for me to make that happen.

I know for sure that Billy and I need to lose some weight, I need to start walking again, my exercise teacher took off for the beach, she won't be back till July :( !

I know for sure that I love the weather here, sunny everyday, until the rains start, which we need, it is very dusty here and we have white tile floors which I sweep all the time.

I know for sure that having a computer here is a life saver, I can't imagine what it would be like not to be able to keep in touch with everyone. Billy talked to his friend Moe today for over an hour, I told him he was like a little old lady LOL!

I know for sure that my emotional life is so much better when I am not homesick. I read something in Oprah the other day that has helped me, it was from Dr. Phil. It was about letting the past go, not dwelling on the loss of my past life, but celebrating it, being grateful that is was so good, and moving on so that I can enjoy my new life here. I guess you could say I had my AH HA moment!

Now if you are going to have Lizards around these are the best kind to have, he is hanging on our outside fireplace.

I love this flower pot, the plant will have white flowers on it when it blooms again.

I know for sure that I still need horses in my life, I am putting it out to the universe to make that happen for me.

I know for sure that I love swimming in the pool, I have always loved to swim so having this pool steps away from my front door is just awesome. The water is just right.

I know for sure that I love the flowers and trees here. My friend Sherry takes me to all the nurseries in town. I told her " you know how guys love hardware stores well you are like that when it comes to nurseries"

Flowers outside of the hotel

Flowers in the garden.

I know for sure that I love having fresh flowers in the house all the time, it makes me smile.

Chili peppers
I know for sure that shopping at the open market is so much better than pushing a shopping cart up and down the aisles of a supermarket!

I know for sure that I still love looking at the mountains here, it is so awesome to be able to sit on the patio and see them, they change all the time with the way the sun and clouds play on them.

Can someone show me how this works, my show is coming on, Animal Planet !

I know for sure that we love the new girl, she is keeping us entertained, and Pancho our other cat likes her too.

And the last thing I know for sure is that time flies when you are having fun, I can't believe that it has been 2 weeks since my last post. Hope you all enjoy this one, till next time Adios !!!


  1. I really like reading about life in Mexico, I think and plan most of the time. Still here in the US for at least another year, maybe a little more. Till then a short vacation to your neighborhood and just reading and thinking and planning. Thanks for your post. Steve & Wheezy
