An Addition to the Casa
I just was able to move into my casa a trunk that I bought at an auction last August. It has resided all this time in the guest house. Now that that house is vacant, I switched out the coffee tables (which is what I have turned the trunk into) and I'm SO enjoying the artwork.
The artist is Peter Leventhal. He resides and paints here in San Miguel. His work brings a smile to my face with its underlying humor, color and rubenesque figures. You should see what's on the inside lid - but, this is a family blog, so I can't post THAT photo. Suffice to say, it is another voluptuose person.........
All this leads up to the fact that the guest house is now spotlessly clean. The windows are sparkling as are the floors and furniture. The best news is that it is already rented. I sent out emails to friends in Mexico and the USA. Lo and behold, a woman from Cave Creek Az. who is a friend of a friend, was heading this way but didn't have a place to live. She does now!
I have worked and worked this past three weeks to get my house and now the guest house and gardens in tip-top shape. There was an ulterior motive.
'm leaving again and heading back to..........yup, you guessed it, West Virginia. The enticement is........well, guess. I'm also going to learn to play golf, work out at the gym, try out the bicycles in the garage and just have fun.
I'm turning into a real jet setter! Ha. Those kids on "The Amazing Race" TV show have nothing on me. You should see me rushing through the various terminals to make my connections.
However, it is all worth it. At both ends is a life that is amazing.......peaceful,beautiful and more then I could ever have imagined.
See you on down the road.
