Default Tuesday Morning

Morning mates, it's overcast and much chillier today, but the sun is trying valiantly to make an appearance.
Today is aquafitness, followed by luncheon given for one of our pool ladies who is moving soon. It will be good to get out. Yesterday was not a good day for me, I need to stay busy and see people to stay sane!

Keith in Ottawa, I wish I could escape for the month of November to somewhere warm!
Keith and Judy, thanks for checking in and hope your internet is back soon!

Good morning, Donna and to the rest of the following CM's.

Oh, Donna, I hope you can continue to keep busy and active during the upcoming winter. I am glad you have furry family to help you during the time you are at home, people alone!

Same old, crazy busy here. Need to order MK today, work on Christmas gift list (the hard part of digging out everything and recording it is done, thank goodness), pick up grands later from the sitter's and a dozen other things!!

Have a good day to all and a great rest of the week!

Good morning. Just made a call to a lady to see when she wants me to come over to put names and numbers in her new cell phone. Ann has bad arthritis in her hands so doing that is hard for her, but she was not home so left a message. No other plans for me.

All have a great day.

Time flys. This is our 10th day in the DR and it is interesting to spent time out and about. To get around you hire a “moto” which is a motor bike taxi. Most will take both of us and the cost is $1 each to go anywhere in town.

Food prices are a little higher than back home and the selection is much less. Fruits and some vegetables can be purchased on the street from the lady balancing the basket on her head.

There is a French Bakery with wonderful breads and pastries..baguettes for $1. We go and have coffee and a pastry.....well under $5 each.

It seems it is very easy to emigrate here. We have met a family from Washington, DC who gave up the grind to live here. He coaches a baseball team and she teaches at the international school.
We have made friends with a couple who last lived in the UK. They also gave up the grind to come live here and they have set up a restaurant not far from us. The food is exceptional, the conversation great and we went there 3 times our first week here. None of these people have regretted their decision to come here. A very different life combined with a good climate.
