My friend Pat, from San Blas, left this morning on the bus back to San Blas. I am missing her already. She got me out of my comfort zone and I did things I haven't done for months. That is one of the nice things about having friends visit. They want to do things that I have decided weren't worth doing anymore. And surprise surprise they were worth doing.
I am feeling well again and have been swimming. Swimming is my favorite thing to do. The spa hasn't been busy because the children are back in school now. If I go at nine in the morning, no one is in the pool. People don't start coming in until the afternoon.
I am still working on my leaflet about helpers. If you know anyone who wants a job staying at the hospital with sick expats, please pass along my information. I need more helpers. It is difficult to find Mexicans who speak good English. If they do, they usually have jobs and would not have the time to stay at the hospital. I only have six helpers now and just one woman. I will put the information on my blog once it is completed.
So, this is what I am doing now. Watching my Bimbo white bread as it doesn't spoil, swimming, walking around town with Chico..
I miss Pat already. My life is much simpler now without her. I can go for days without talking to anyone. A morning of swimming and then taking the bus home pretty much wipes me out for the rest of the day. Maybe if I get stronger I will have enough energy to do more things in the afternoons.
These flowers are now over two weeks old. They take a long time to wilt. Just one flower in that bunch has died. The ones at the top are new. This is just one stem of flowers. They cost 35 pesos at the Weds. Market. They have a wonderful fragrance. So Bimbo bread and Lilies are long lasting buys..... if you don't mind eating bread that doesn't spoil.
