Ajijic Wednesday Market

Wednesdays come around so quickly. My refrigerator is still packed with food from last week's market and now it is time to shop again. That is okay with me. This is my favorite day of the week. I am also meeting a woman later on in the day to talk about house sitting. I will be taking care of her house for the entire month of February. This will be my first house sitting job since I broke my ankle.

Another Sunset in Ajijic

I walked to the lake yesterday evening and watched the sunset with Chico. It is the first time since my accident that I have taken sunset photos. It was a beautiful evening. Chico was jumping for joy to get a walk and be at his favorite place. It is mine too.

Sunday at the Real de Chapala Hotel

This is the fourth Sunday in a row that I have gone to the Real de Chapala to listen to the mariachis. I am becoming a regular again. I have to quit buying their buffet lunches. They are too fattening. Well.... maybe once a month I can indulge myself in a buffet lunch... It was a great time again with friends.

A Nursery in Jocotopec

A couple of days ago I took a trip with my friend Stacey to Jocotopec. She was interested in buying some flowers. We went to a beautiful nursery on the main road. It is on the left side of the street just before getting into Jocotopec. The prices were very reasonable too.

My Afternoon at the Real de Chapala Hotel

I managed to walk all the way to the Real de Chapala Hotel today without a cane. I walked very slowly and took photos all along the way. I was the only customer at the restaurant. The waiters were all standing around just talking. They were nice to me and let me sit by the pool when I ordered my hamburger.  I took photos of the grounds and walked home. It was peaceful. As I sat there looking out on the lake, I thought of how I felt when I was stuck at home in bed during the previous three months. And I remembered telling myself how happy I would be when I could get out again. And I WAS very happy today. It was a special treat for me. The waiters all know me now and I feel like an important guest when I go there. I asked one of the waiters to take a photo of me and then I took one of him.  I told myself I was going to start a diet today. Instead I ordered a hamburger and a coke. No need to spoil a special day with a diet. I will diet tomorrow..... 
This is Alicia's Board and Care Home. Nice Place. Two blocks from my casita.

The road I live on. Looks like they are having a good day too.
They painted my favorite house purple. It was blue. Both colors looked good.

It was a beautiful afternoon. Not bad for an unplanned day by myself. I am happy just to be able to walk again, even though it is a slow walk and it still hurts. Maybe one day soon I will be walking all over town again. But for now, I am pleased to be living on such a beautiful street and close to the Real de Chapala Hotel.
