Finally, internet

I went to telmex yesterday, thinking it was the last time I would try to get the modem. Surprise, it was there. She said she had been to my house twice to deliver it. So I took it home and hooked it up. I can even watch Netflix and call on skype. 

Happy day. My deck with Chico looking out of the French doors. My little office area is next to those doors. Lots of light and air streams in from all sides.

No internet

Still no internet. Still using the sims card. Still waiting for the modem.... i am promised it every day. But it doesn't arrive. It was supposed to be delivered at my door at the beginning of the week. It didn't come. I deleted all the frustrating e mails about it. Boring to others. Terribly frustrating to me. So I am not writing on the blog these days. I may never get the internet.

Morning Thoughts

After weeks of packing, unpacking and moving furniture, I am able to take a couple of days off. I still have a lot of work to do on this new house in order to be comfortable. I do not have a working water heater nor is my washer/dryer hooked up. Rubin, the man who moved me over here, is coming tomorrow to help with a few things. In the meantime, I am going to try to rest today. After I get settled in here I will walk around San Antonio and take pictures and post them. 

I have a view of the sunrise out my kitchen window. It faces the back yard. I have a view of the sunset from the balcony in the front of the house. I feel so lucky to have a sense of space instead of feeling closed in. 

It is noisy here now because of the holidays. More fireworks will be going off as New Year's Eve approaches. I feel like I have a new life now. It was worth all the effort but for sure I will sell my heavy furniture before I move again. 

I wish everyone a very Happy New Year. I may not write again until after the holiday. I appreciate the e mails people have been sending to me. Maybe one day I can get the comments to work on here. That would be a good goal.  Until then, you can e mail me at:
