Living in Mexico, we are having fun!

Thursday December 10, 2009
I finished painting the living room today. It is soooo much nicer now that the limegreenyellowpuke is gone. We feel much more relaxed and at home. I will finish decorating and putting things back to where they should be and then take a picture and you can see it for yourselves. We had the electrician come by today too to fix a live wire that was sticking out of the wall with a pink plastic bag on it for protection. Hmmmm. Now we have two more lights that work. It was a simple thing, and you gotta wonder why wasn't it done by the owner?


This is the view from the rooftop of the casita. Pretty much all Mexican houses have access to the roof. It is extra living space otherwise gone to waste. Usually they have what is called a mirador on the roof which is really just some sort of roof for protection from the sun and maybe a side or two or three for some privacy. Our casita doesn't really have a mirador, but we can take a couple chairs and table up on to the roof and enjoy the sunrise or sunset. The mountains in the background are starting to turn brown for the winter. During the summer rainy season, this hillside is like a jungle.
Our location is much quieter that when we were here two years ago. There are no roosters or roof dogs. And the propane truck does not come by blasting his loud speaker everyday. We have lots of mature trees around which attract many birds. The rumble of the traffic is off in the distance and we don't really notice. So far we have very little to complain about and a lot to be thankful for.
I promise tomorrow I will post some pictures of the inside of our house.

All sounds great! Looking forward to all the postings and photos. Personally, I'm very interested in the food, so please tell us about that too.

That looks so nice Kathy! At first glance the house on the left of the photo looks like the windows of a boat. Can't wait to get there.

Love, Mom

Okay, Roma, I will do some very special posts about food, especially since that in one of my favorite things as well.
