Morning Thoughts

My life has turned around. Before I write anything else, I want to thank everyone for the outpouring of offers of everything; love, good wishes, storage, housing, help moving.....  I am amazed. I had no idea that people cared so much. I spend most of my time alone and this was a surprise. Thank you all. 

Next, I have a typical Mexican apartment now which I can move into as soon as the owners move into the one upstairs. It is just one block from my favorite shopping center, El Torito, Salvadoes and the theater. It has three large rooms. Finally a kitchen after eight years. And a small private patio and garden that opens up from the back bedroom. Chico and Olive will be safe there. I do not have to give them up!  

It is also unfurnished so I can keep mine and there is room for all my things. The rent is only 2500 pesos a month. Now I really feel blessed.

  3. Oh this is fantastic news! Ask and it shall be given unto you!!! Sounds like a lovely change from where you are now by a long shot, and you are closer to me I suspect since I'm just down on Guadalupe Victoria at Lolita's Inn. We can meet up for coffee at Salvadors sometime! Can't wait to see pix of your new home once you are moved in and settled. Hopefully this will be your new home for a long time to come! Sure can't beat that price either for Ajijic, so it was meant to be just for you.

  11. Hi Patricia. I posted a comment yesterday but maybe you did not get it so I am writing again.

    I am so happy for you and that you, Chico and Olive get to stay together.
    It is wonderful news also that it is very affordable and you can take your nice furniture!
    It all worked out in the end.
    Did the maid that gave you food on your birthday tell you about this apartment?
