Hi Guys nīGals!
I thouht it must be time to post an update. We had a great time on our first Trans-Atlantic cruise aboard the Celebrity Eclipse, having returned to Mexico from London in early May.
We have had two sets of visitors from Florida and Washington State for a couple of weeks in June and took the latter duo to Zihuatanejo for a couple of days after touring many of the highlights here in Colonial Mexico.
We had wonderful visits and the weather was largely quite good except for a couple of afternoon thunder showers, which are quite normal for this time of year. The "rainy season" has made it quite green, giving the valley an emerald hue much like Ireland.
Our housebuilding is coming along amazingly well and is right on schedule. Right now they are finishing up the terra cotta roof tiles and the inside plaster work. The bell has been installed in the opening on the mission style facade. The front of the house looks a bit like a quaint old mission basilica. I guess we will have to have tequila sunrise services or such! (Just Kidding of Course!)
Both David and I are getting tired of living in a rental house eventhough it is actually quite nice. Every day when we go to look at the new house we wish we could move in that day. But the good news is that we only have two or three more munths until that dream will come true and it is fun seeing the daily progress nonetheless.
I just noticed that one of my favorite folk singers, Iris Dement, will be appearing 7 nights on the Norwegian Pearl in early February. I cannot say that we love Norwegian cruise lines, but her appearing on the Pearl may make us reconsider our prejudices in this case. Hmmmmmmmmmm????? You may know of her if you saw the movie "The Songcatcher."
Anyway, Bye for now and I will check in here in a few days! Hasta Luego!
