Guess Who's Coming to Dinner?

Buenas dias!

It is so hot here. I can hardly believe it. Last week it did not get over eighty six for several days and we had such a good breeze, it felt like fall. This feels like I have been put right into my toaster oven. The sun is brutally hot. We have the mini split on all the time.

So, we are leaving shortly to go to the beach with friends. I have my camera, my flip flops and sea shell bags ready to go.....umbrella, camp chairs, sketch book, good to go.

I do believe it took me all week to have a Nescafe detox. I got a lot done. Rarely did I have a sit down one on one with the computer.

Senor reminds me that while we were having that breakfast, he read on the Nescafe jar that it contains thirty percent sugar. He thinks the combination did me in. And for those of you who emailed me and asked me to send them some, GET A LIFE.........

Now, you must remember this....................... The photo was taken in September, two years ago. This was the casa's little kitchen. We had to put storage bin lids in the chimney to block it off because Ashes used it as a hideaway and more than once we had to reach way up in there and drag her little body out.
Then, of course, I was not planning to do my laundry by hand so we got the washing machine.

But, check it out now.

Remember, this will be our bathroom. Sweet as it gets, huh?
For now we are using it as our sitting room, the chairs and table are in there while Umberto plasters the bedroom.

Here is the iron on the laundry room window. Just as sweet, huh?

So we are getting more and secure and finally have a place to sit when company comes.
And speaking of company, guess who's coming to dinner?

Adios, the beach awaits us! Linda Lou

The casa is looking muy buena! What a luxury to have a fire place in the bathroom! Glad you have company and hope you all have a wonderful time. Weather has cooled down here in the desert of California. Maybe, some cooler air will reach you soon.
