Back from our cruise….Yes, we are still alive!

LOCATION:  In our tiny house in Mission, Texas
WEATHER:  Sunny and warm.  High 87

I haven’t posted since returning to Texas as life has consisted of laundry, cleaning, and yardwork – not too interesting! Some blog readers have contacted me, concerned that we are ok (since I haven’t posted).

For those new to my blog, we live 3-5 months/year in a 55+ gated community in South Texas.  We are about 1/2 mile from Mexico!  It is the same latitude as Sarasota, Florida, so we get a lot of nice weather in the winter.  We live in a small house – 720 square feet.  The driveway has hook-ups for our trailer.  When we have guests, we use the Airstream trailer as our guest house!  The community has a swimming pool, clubhouse, and lots of activities.  It is quite vibrant.  It is a good place to hang out in the winter.  Here is where we are….

We arrived back late on Saturday night.  Some friends from our community – Retama Village – picked us up.  So kind. 

Sunday and Monday were busy with laundry and cleaning.  I did a lot of yardwork, pulling up weeds.  Now I am sore!  We did a grocery run – and really spent a lot of money since the cupboards and refrigerator were empty!

We are getting back to the routine – pickleball, water aerobics, line-dancing (me) and ping pong and pool (for George).  Margaritas with friends in the late afternoon.  An easy life!

I will post periodically, when there is something interesting to write about. 

DINNER:  Grillmaster George grilled some portabellos for sandwiches.  While he had the grill going, he charred some bell peppers, jalapeno peppers, poblano peppers, and onions for me to use in a future meal of fajitas.  He also cooked bacon to have on hand for BLTs. 

BOOK:  “Silent Girl” by Tess Gerritsen.  Another good book in the series featuring a policewoman and medical examiner.  A real page-turner.  4 stars out of 5.
