So happy that our daughter visited us

LOCATION:  In our tiny house in Mission, Texas
WEATHER:  Awful.  Cold and rain.  High 47

It has rained all day every day for about a week.  Wouldn’t you know it….this is when our daughter came to visit. 

We made the best of her visit, eating a good lunch out one day, and doing a lot of computer work with her assistance.  The three of us will be going to Colombia, South America in the spring.  We worked on getting our flights and checked out some AirB&Bs.  One thing checked off on my “to-do list”.

One day, we went to Nuevo Progreso, Mexico.  George had a dentist appointment.  While he was getting a new crown, Alexis and I did some shopping and she got a pedicure.  It was fun for the 2 of us to chat in Spanish to the beauty shop owner.  We had some good Mexican food and some margaritas.  Fun – even though the streets were flooded and it was still raining and cool.

I did a lot of vegan dinner meals during her visit….One night was a garbanzo/spinach stew.  Another night, a vegetable chow mein noodle meal, and last night a dish with farro and tofu.  I had bought a LOT of fruits and vegetables for her visit, and we have managed to go through most of the food.

She is saving up her vacation days, so this 4-day trip was just a long weekend for her.  Today, we took her back to the airport in Harlingen.  She can fly out of there to Minneapolis for about $200 round-trip, on a nice, direct flight.  Here we are bundled up this morning on the way to the airport…..

And….the weather forecast is for sun and warmth starting tomorrow! 

BOOK:  “Call After Midnight” by Tess Gerritsen.  This is not part of the detective/medical examiner series, but was quite good.  4 stars out of 5.  Another ‘who-done-it’.
