 Buen dia. Whoowheee, the heat has arrived, but it is on the wings of westerly wind, so it does not seem quite as hot as the 105 reading we got the other day on our way out of town to go to the bead store in Navajoa.
A friend called to say it was 108 under her portal and I checked immediately, 98 under ours. So, there can be a vast difference, barrio to barrio. But it is definitely hot. And we have very little humidity, right now.

Things generally seem to move slowly around here, that is nothing new for me to post about. Of course, they do not move that slowly. Senor says I just don't see the process going on and therefore, don't see the progress.
But, I am pretty happy about this plastering that is going on. In the first photo you can see the inside plaster (this is the kitchen), well, it is just cal and water, isn't that plaster? Senor just went to the ferreterria or I would ask him and he would say........well, what did I call it the last time you asked me.................i don't remember. Anyway there is the inside and the outside (under the portal) and they look good to me. 
I think I have just about had it with this new blogger business. I don't really have time to sit around and try and figure out how to work it. A friend wrote that I can switch back to the old blogger and I might just do that.

In the meantime, I am off to town before it gets too hot. In the afternoons everything is beginning to shut down. We are hiding out in the bedroom with the mini split on, reading or watching sports on the internet. Cookies seems to think it is cooler under the bed. Most people and animals are hiding out as well. But I did see the monitor lizard out yesterday afternoon on the tree up the street. He looks hot to me.
Okay, if this post seems lacking real significant content it is because I am too caught up in the way blogger wants me to post now. It wants captions and when I do that the type changes. I am not a computer whiz. I am just a blogger who need an easy system to follow. Maybe on one of these hot afternoons I can change back to the original format. In the meantime, muchos abrazos parar ti. Oh, and Hi Mom. hasta luego, linda lou

Looking good ... and big. Can't tell what part of the house it's going to be.

I just mostly finished up a large marquesina along the house for better rain and sun protection. Cement and stucco is so dirty but the end result is worth it.

Hey, Sparks,
The window in the plastered wall is where the kitchen sink and counter will be and then that opens to the dining and sala, all one big room. On the outside of the plastered wall, under the portal, in that area will be our dipping pool and to the north of that, our outdoor fireplace.
In June, which will mark our 4th year I will post some before and afters. Marquesina, is it like a portal? LL

Marquesina is a awning of some sort

assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
