If you spend any length of time in Mexico you will need to learn some patience, have a little persistence to hopefully persevere.  

After I got back from the road trip north in early June, all of sudden the mini-split in the living-room made some popping noises and then nothing.  We only had this unit for barely a year and have used it very little but was out of the bumper to bumper warranty even though the compressor and motor are still under warranty.

Our adventures took us to Mercado Natural y Artesanala weekly event on Sundays located at Recicleteando  which is a vegan/vegetarian restaurant.  It is a smaller, quirky, eclectic location with a mix of vendors which sell natural, handmade or organic products.  There are classes offered of Thai Chi, Yoga, Karate, Self Defense, Photography and Reading along with events for children and the family.  The restaurant was very good but did have to chuckle as the other half was going to order a hamburger until I pointed out it was meatless, so he had breakfast!  I thought it was a very relaxing place to visit with soothing music in the background, large chess board if you wanted to sit in the shade and play.  There was no pressure to rush through but encouragement to try items or ask questions, we will be back. [...]  Read More

This is a check in on how my one word for the year of 2018 is progressing.  My word choice I had selected was ‘Balance’ and is still a work in progress with baby steps moving forward.

 

I have to thank Camille from our blogging group and owner of SurvivingMexico.com as she got me blogging a lot more than I even planned or imagined.  I joined her and a couple of ladies in our group to do the 2018 A to Z Challenge, I went from posting once a month to completing 12 blogs in a month.  After accomplishing this, I should be able to push towards weekly at a minimum but it actually triggered me to come up with a new adventure starting in July.  My plan is for us (including the other half) to go someplace weekly which is new to us in town or within a day’s drive and check it out.  It can be an event, a museum, place or whatever and then will blog about it.  This will allow us to find free or cheap entertainment locally plus learn something new about where we live. [...]  Read More

Right now my day seems to be never-ending tiling.  Basically the last couple years has been mostly about the house but the major projects are finally coming to an end.  So lately my day has predominantly been setting tile or grouting.  We are finally down to grouting on Saturday and then some touch paint, YES!!

I know this is after the fact by almost a month but it was amazing to view.

Took pictures in the late evening showing the large moon before the event began.  Without realizing the actual time of the event I woke up at 4 am just as it began.  This blog will be more visual as I post the progress of this event.
