I have been kind of lax in keeping up my blog. This rainy weather is distracting but it looks like it is going to start clearing up again. The mornings are very gloomy but by the afternoon it is nice again. I try not to write when I am depressed or feeling negative about something and this weather has really gotten me down.
I have been going to the San Juan Cosala Spa in the late afternoons and it hasn't been crowded at all. The rainy season is the best time to use the spa because not many people are around. I bought a Swimp3 player in the states through E Bay. (I love to shop on E Bay.) That is a waterproof mp3 player. I was using it up in Portland and it makes swimming for an hour much more interesting than just counting laps.
Last night, I went to a singles event at a local restaurant. Of course, it was mostly women. I had a nice meal and then took the bus home. It was a beautiful, clear night and it was the first time in months that I had been out walking around alone at night. I felt perfectly safe. I should do that more often.
It is good to be back in Mexico but soon I will be going to Portland again for the month of November. I will miss all the Day of the Dead celebrations. I forgot about them when I booked my ticket online. Maybe I can find some events in Portland.
I have one house sitting job coming up in a week or so. It is in Chapala. I will take lots of photos of Chapala. I love being there. It is so different from Ajijic. I also love the little dogs. They follow me everywhere. It is nice to be needed, even if it is just by dogs. Or maybe, being needed by dogs is the greatest gift of all. Their love is unconditional!
