Christmas: We had a nice Christmas and I was doing great, not missing everyone in the states until my son Skyped us, and everyone was at his house having a great time, then I started missing them, after that my Christmas spirit kinda left me. I already took down all the Christmas decorations, something that I never do till after the 1st of the year. Oh well like they say you can't have everything.
City: My friend Julie, goes into Guad. all the time and sometimes I go with her, I love going into Guad. I wouldn't want to live there, but I love to visit it, so much to do and see. I just love people watching, and there were plenty to watch. I really am surprised that I like the city, I usually don't like noise and crowds but I don't mind it at all when I am there. If you can't find what you are looking for in Guad, then you don't need it. It really helps to have someone with you who knows all the places to shop. My friend Jeanne, wanted to go to the fabric stores as did Charis, Julie goes for the yarn and beads, and I went to look for some new clothes. We all managed to find things to buy, so it was a very successful day for all of us. I also remembered to take my camera so I could have some new pictures for my blog. Get this I even had a spare battery for my camera, so I was prepared ! see you can teach an old dog new tricks. LOL
My Blog: Sometimes I think about not writing this blog, it takes awhile to do, with taking pictures, downloading them, finding something to say that will keep my readers coming back for more etc., but then I will go online and there will be a comment from a new reader, telling me that she likes my blog and horses, and she is looking forward to reading more, so what can you do, you say to yourself, and there you have it, you have to keep on writing. So thank you readers for your comments, it is what keeps me going.
Traveling: I told hubby, that we need to start seeing more of Mexico, next month we are going to go to Colima, it is only a 2 hour drive away, and I hear it is nice there, warmer than here as it is closer to the beach, maybe we will even go to the beach, which I really miss. I will post on that trip when we return.
Tapalpa: We went to Tapalpa with our friends Jeanne and Eric, beautiful countryside, I thought it would be cold but it wasn't bad at all, we stayed over night because Jeanne and Eric were going Paragliding first thing in the morning. I took pictures of that but for some reason they didn't come out good so that is why there is only 1 posted here. This was our second time visiting Tapalpa, it is a nice quiet town, with lot's of little shops to wander in and out of. On our way into town we stopped at a little local store, we walked in and there was a young Mexican man with a smile from ear to ear, he spoke to us in his broken English and asked us where we were from and did we like Mexico, he was so happy to practice his English on us, this happens time and time again, it always makes us smile that the Mexican people are so proud to know some English. Now if only some of the Americans would show the same back by trying to learn Spanish that would be great!
Spanish lessons: My teacher is on vacation, and I am suppose to be studying on my own, and am I??? well not as much as I should be, I did do some homework, and I did study my nouns, so I guess I did some but I could do more, I have another week left before she gets back, after all I don't want to get detention.
Ok got to wrap this up and go ride Melaza this afternoon. Hope all my readers had a wonderful Christmas and Have a safe and Happy New Year.
