Transitions. We used to be all about planning our move. Then making the move. Then I wrote about everything foreign and strange. That was then…now I blog about our ordinary life, but our ordinary life in Mexico. And it’s a good life.
Life has been all about the little things, lately.
We’re back in Spanish class. Another couple we know is pretty well matched with us skills-wise, so we now have a four person class twice a week. It is going great.
The blog continues to evolve. Up at the top are links to pages with Mexico resources/links, Photos, Videos, and Books. I might even add a page for knitting stuff to keep it out of the main blog area. What do you think?
The backyard remodel continues. Once it gets cleaned up a bit I’ll do another post, but I add pictures frequently to the Photos page at the top so if you’d like to see what’s going on, check it out.
We bought a set of Mexican Train dominoes at a garage sale a couple of weeks ago. Both Paul and I love to play dominoes so we were excited about giving it a try. Friends came over this week and we played for a couple of hours…it was fun, but will probably become more fun when we remember the rules a bit better.
Son Adam and daughter-in-law Martha are coming for a visit in the middle of the month. We are really excited to see them, especially with Martha expecting their daughter in a few months.
Son Phil and his family are coming in November for a few days on their way to a wedding in Colima. I’m a happy lady about all these visits.
I bought a sewing machine. I have a few shell type tank tops I like and I plan on cloning them. But right now I am obsessed with knitting. I finished the baby hat and then was surprised with a package from Crochet, a yarn store in Mexico City, courtesy of my son and daughter in law. (Knitters, see my note at the bottom of the post) They bought yarn for the baby blanket, some coordinating extras, a couple balls of baby cashmerino and then some beautiful green yarn for ME!
So then I had to get a plan for the baby blanket. I decided to make a basketweave pattern like the sweater in the book below. And then Wayne wanted me to model the sweater I made myself. It was hot and I look pretty bedraggled but I think when the weather cools here I’ll wear it quite a bit.
