Life is Good


Buenas Tardes.
How in the %@$! did it get to be May?

Last I remember I was sitting at the Starbucks in Obregon wondering why I could not get a peppermint mocha and suddenly I wake up and it is May.

And it is hot now and the tourists are gone and the black hooded orioles went with them, town is quiet at night and our air conditioner is not working properly.
At night you can hear ice cracking inside of it.
Senor says this is not true and it is not a problem for him.
He must be losing his hearing because I am going to be a problem for him if he does not get it fixed.
This happened last year, too, and it only got repaired when water started pouring out of it over my side of the bed.

Enough of that business.
Look what I have.
 Of course it is real!
How can you question that?
We went to Elektra here in Alamos and looked at stoves.
Then Senor and I drove to Navojoa and looked at stoves.
 Then we drove to Obregon and looked at stoves.
We found one in Home Depot, put it in the back end of the car and drove it home.
Whooweeee, that was a twelve hour day.

I went to Elektra the following day to pay our phone bill and saw the exact stove we bought in Obregon.
Not only was it 3 minutes from our house, it was a lot less expensive.

No, it is not hooked up.
But look below where Senor is doing all the stuff you have to do to hook up a propane stove.
How does he know how to do this?
I don't know.
He just does.


When I am cooking I will be looking at all this pretty sala in the photo below.


Until it is ready, my 2 burner hot plate and my little toaster oven and the big asador in the yard can put out some real good meals.
Not too long ago we put two big geese on the spit and had thirty-two people at our dining tables.
Life is good.
Que le vaya bien.

It is good knowing that you all are okay. The house will be done when it is done. I am surprised we haven't seen baby pictures yet.

Wow, Linda! Your sala has really come along since the goose party! And that stove...it's like going from the stone age to rocket science! Have you checked out air conditioners at Electra?? In another blink of an eye, we'll be back in Alamos.

Mr Gill,thank you, we are fine. 2 baby photos. I will show you more as soon as I figure out how to transfer them from instagram to the blog. I found it not to be easy and could only get these two!

Yennifer!!!!! Yeah you are due due due, but as I say in the next post, I have to clean up the casa first. You would not, well you probably would, believe how messy the 3 guys are, Senor, Rosario and Marcello. I cant believe the things they lay on my tablecloths! So, put it on the floor, okay?

narniafarmer, thank you so much. that is the word we like, a little hacienda. Stay in touch and I will also.

Gia! I am going to need you to teach me how to use this propane stove. I have been electric for the past 30 years, seriously, evidently you have to push a button to make the propane come in to the line? what the 5247???? we got our mini split at HD in Obregon years ago and yes for the next one we might stay close to home, bajajajaja! see you soon when you get to be too cold to be north.....LL
