It is a rainy morning. Surprising since we haven't had much rain lately. I know we need it, so I am not going to complain. The lake is very low still. You can see it in the photos I recently put on of Chapala. I think it is about the lowest it has been since I came here six years ago. (Or maybe that was seven years ago. I have stopped counting. )
This is the last day of my house and dog sitting job in Chapala. This evening I go back to my little casita and Chico. I miss my day to day life in Ajijic and I have only been away six days.There is nothing like being at my own home. No matter that it is just two small rooms with no kitchen.
I bought a kitchen island while in Chapala. Now that was stupid! Did I think that having a kitchen island would turn that side of my room into a kitchen? I am becoming a furniture hoarder. Maybe they will let me get out of it. I will try this morning. It hasn't been delivered yet. I can see myself tripping over it all the time. What was I thinking? Having lots of furniture doesn't make a casita larger. It makes a casita SMALLER. I need to remember this the next time I am tempted to buy more furniture.
I go back to the States on October 31st and I will be there until Dec. 4th. It is winter up there now. Very cold and rainy. Again, what was I thinking? I make a lot of stupid decisions. I like to joke about married people. At least they have someone else to blame if a stupid decision is made, even if the partner wasn't the one who made it. But being single, I have no one to blame but myself. The buck stops here. No, it is down the street with the man who sold me the kitchen island. I am going now to try to get it back.
