I just popped a bag of popcorn in the microwave. Why is that a bag of popcorn only pops about 3/4's of its kernels? Or could it just be my borrowed microwave, or maybe I need to check the power level or something. Bajajaja, out of curiosity, just went and did that, it was on 2. Anyway I ate the whole 3/4th's bagful and put the un popped corn out on the asador for the doves. Senor did not get a single bite because he is off playing bridge this afternoon. Thank goodness!
I feel like we have been cooped up in the bedroom with the fake mini split since we returned from Colorado. In all fairness, feeling that way has been my own sense of ease in thinking it too hot, or I am just still too tired from the trip, oh, I am so lazy and so I will just lay down on the bed and read a book. I am pretty sure Senor has felt the same way. Really, I have spent the last 3 weeks since returning from Colorado doing....nothing. Cooking has been a chore, we have eaten a bunch of stuff out of cans. Sweeping? absolutely not. Laundry? too big a job. Washing dishes, forget it.
So today I snapped completely. I mowed the lawn, I rearranged the fake kitchen, I pulled the big weeds at the bases of all the palms, I organized the laundry glasspondstudio shop room. Cookies followed me around, meowing each time I returned to the kitchen for a new plastic garbage bag and when I went near the bedroom door he howled to get inside so we could lay back down on the bed and read or snore the day away. He demanded I stop every half hour or so and stroke his back by grabbing my ankle and tugging as I walked by. As soon as he rolled over on his back and I gave him the once over I was off leaving him in despair.
I did 2 loads of laundry I brought back dirty from Colorado, I went and visited my 90 year old neighbor who was taken by her loving family back to live in the states while we were gone and then quickly returned because she missed her Alamos home too much and really let them know about it. She kissed me and said I smelled like old garlic and what had I been cooking and I said nothing really. Really, nothing......
I walked around the corner to Pancho's little store for a Nestle's dark chocolate and almond ice cream bar, and ate it before I got around the corner and went back for another one. I changed the sheets on the twin beds in case someone comes to visit and I organized all the magazines, Sunset in this pile, Martha in that pile, Phoenix Home and Garden over there.
Then I threw away all the refrigerator food that should have been thrown out before we even went to Colorado.
Man, I am feelin' gooooood.
He and Humberto went and got that pile of ladrillos and Humberto is working on one of the walls now that will be on the casa side of the portal. I am seeing shape here, people...........
Okay, I guess I made my blog point and oh, that is good, too. I must be back in the blog swing and man, I am feelin' gooood.
LOL and hasta la vista, baby! Linda Lou
