Morning Thoughts

It is a beautiful morning. Lots of sunshine and singing birds.  I can finally breathe normally again. My sickness gave me a lot of sympathy for people who always have breathing problems.

I  went to the spa yesterday morning. I got there when it opened at nine and no one else was in the pool. I bought a twenty ticket pass so I need to go two or three times a week in order to use them up before they expire in four months. Sometimes bus loads of people arrive there so I have to be in the pool and out before ten in the morning. Otherwise, it is too crowded to swim laps. That is a popular place. And expensive. The daily rate for adults is now 220 pesos. This price goes up every few months.  I also went into the underground cave. I thought it would help my lungs but it is so steamy and hot in there that I could only stand to be in it a couple of minutes.

Yesterday afternoon a truck loaded up with oranges, tangerines and small watermelons came into my neighborhood. I bought all three. It is difficult for me to bring heavy fruit like that up this hill. Every time I have walked up this hill with heavy packages Mexican men and women have offered to carry them for me. Even young boys have offered to carry them. I guess I look pathetic, huffing and puffing up the hill. I always say no because I need the exercise but I appreciate their offers. I love living in a Mexican neighborhood. People are so friendly and thoughtful......  Having to move out of my old place was a blessing. I need to learn to trust life more and have faith that when one door closes, another will open.

The Ajijic Plaza

This is the bar across the street from the plaza.

I am feeling well enough to get out of the house now. I went to the spa this morning. It was beautiful out there. Nothing like floating in a pool of thermal water to lift the spirit as well as the body.
