Senor and Linda Lou have been in Pueblo Alamos, Sonora, Mexico for 8 years. Okay, okay, now it's been 9 years.
Every day brings a new discovery.
They are still working on the casa............Senor says, it won't be long.........but Linda Lou says, it won't be long until what..............stay tuned to find out what's next.

Time Flies



The beautiful moon and what we think was mercury, but not sure, very pretty sky!!!
I have been spending some time trying to find out where my time goes.
Then Senor suggested this:

When we do laundry, it takes 20 minutes to set up the washing machine. We have to hook up the electrical cords, which have been hooked up to the cement mixer, and locate the long pvc pipes that attach to the washer and carry the water from the washer to the yard. The water hose has to then be attached to the washer......we no longer get to carry the laundry to the machine and throw it in and push a button.......


When we cook on the hot plate, space needs to be made for cutting, dicing and slicing, water needs to be pumped from its container, we have to FIND the hot plate, unhook the other electrical cords and find a safe place to set the hot plate.....we are no longer just turning the knob on the stove...............

When we watch a dvd in the evenings, we must take the laptop out of the bedroom, bring out the cords, attach the speakers, use the little screwdriver to pop open the place where you put the disc (because senor broke that)........we are no longer just turning on the tv............
When I wash dishes......I won't even go into the details of that....so, enough......because I could go on and on.

I think he is right, there is so much preparation for everything we do, and that is where alot of the time goes. Perhaps, we will have more time when we are farther along on our casa, or maybe time will begin to fly even faster.....who knows........






From fruit to juice, time: 20 minutes................................


que tengas buen dia, mi amigos...linda lou

That is Venus dancing with the Moon. Some sight, isn't it?

Thank you! I guess I was the one wondering! In fact senor says He said it was Venus and I said it was Mercury...
