It's been since 2006. The year that I started writing the blog. It was an attempt to document and to
maintain my sanity at that point. It worked.........well most of it!
Today I happened to notice the amount of posts that there have been to date. I compared it with the
book I just finished reading by Ken Follett entitled "Never". It was 800+ pages and it took quite a
while to reach the conclusion which I did last night about midnight. The story was definitely a page turner
and I'm glad I'm finished with it.
So, to keep it in context if I turned all the blogposts into a book, it would cover two 800 page books!
Quite amazing but it would not have been half as much fun as keeping up with all the daily events such
as trips, adventures, family, activities in San Miguel and a myriad of things.
In fact, if I wanted to see what I wrote about Day of the Dead over the years, I just put it in the Search
Box on the blog and voila all of the photos and musings appear. Now I see it as not only a digest but a
journal of sorts of the last fifteen years.
In the last twenty months of covid with not much going on then daily life, it seemed rather blah to
write. But just recently I seem to be getting out a bit (nothing like in the past), still masked but at least
getting out to meet friends for lunch or whatever.
Every time I do go out I notice so much because there is a time lapse between times. The other day I
noticed the trees are turning yellow and orange. It's lovely. I am also noticing the advance of
construction projects and the amount of traffic even though I try to stay on the back roads going
My forays have been brought to a screeching halt today with the news that the street that I live on is
going to be closed for three weeks while they install a new sewer line. In the past, I went through that
up at the house on the hill but at that time the trench was about 12 inches outside my door and to leave
house, the workers had to put down a plank over the deep trench and then hold onto me so I didn't fall
in the trench. Luckily this time it is in the middle of the street so I can peek out from time to time to
see the progress. Here are a few photos of things that have been happening since I last wrote the blog.
Now there is a baby as well!
The flowers on the porch where I spend a LOT of time reading or gardening or whatever.
And, last but not least a spectacularly beautiful sunset last week. Breathtakingly beautiful.
It was hard to believe it was real!
I will try to write more frequently. With the holidays starting next week, there will be much more to
read and write about.
Stay safe and Stay masked...........
