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.
