This morning I walked along by the lake to the Lake Chapala Society for their Open Circle talk. It was a beautiful morning with Morning Glories in bloom all over the beach area. On the way home I saw these horses. Next Sunday I will be in Portland. Today I am enjoying every moment of the warm weather. I was looking at the weather report for Portland and it is at least twenty five degrees below what it is here. My son laughs at me when I tell him how I am dreading the cold weather. I have heard that our blood gets thinner when we live for a long time in a hot climate.That explains why in the winter time here in the mornings the Mexicans are wearing jackets and gloves and hats and the people just arriving from Canada are wearing shorts and thin t shirts.
I saw a returning friend at Open Circle today. He just arrived on Friday. He told me that we have both been here for five years. He leaves in the summer and returns this time of the year. I haven't left here for over a year. Time sure flies........ I had no idea it has been so long.... Every Thanksgiving for the past four years he has taken me out somewhere for Thanksgiving. This year I will be in Portland. I am missing this place already and I haven't even left yet!!!
