July 27, 2010Joanna and her sisters
Jorge and I are still in Canada enjoying the west coast Canadian summer at its best! We’ve not had a drop of rain but have been showered with kindness by many good friends.
My long-time friend Mary has chauffeured us from one lovely event to another. She’s planning to join us on our Life Long Learning trips this winter and will perhaps spend a few weeks in Merida as well.
Those of you who live in Merida will be thrilled to see this photograph of Jan and Tony Brown. They both look fantastic and are looking forward to returning to their La Ceiba home in early October. (J.K. if you are reading this, Jan absolutely loved her Frida necklace!)
The family have also deluged us with invitations to dinners and picnics and we are beginning to feel like roly-poly piglets!
We corresponded with an invitation to all my brothers, sisters and significant others to join us for mole and margaritas. They tucked in as though they were the Mexican relatives… not the Canadian ones!
Hikes in the parks and along the little beach in front of “our” house are helping to keep the zippers from completely popping…
The sales are at their peak in the city’s department stores and boutiques. The bargains are hard to resist but the weight restrictions are keeping the spending in check.
I don’t HAVE to do anything. Stress level is down to almost zero. My only responsibility is keeping the ten plants watered – I could get so used to this!
(Yes these pithaya-looking flowers are growing in a West Vancouver home… here they are called “Moon Flowers”)
