The handkerchief plant is even blooming now!
I haven’t been blogging very frequently lately. I think the enthusiasm for writing ebbs and flows, right now I have been spending more of my energy doing other things – knitting, reading, helping a friend with a new business, and getting back into the swing of wintertime social and cultural events.
I am not working any more (at least for pay!) but Paul is – most days he works about four hours for his former employer. He tries to keep it to morning hours so we can do things together in the afternoon and evening – but he is truly not retired! I usually do housework, shopping, etc while he is working, and then when he’s done we go do the fun stuff.
Mazatlán has a cultural festival every fall that is always good but this year seems extra interesting. Dance, Music, Clowns, Film, Parades and other events happen almost daily. The venues are varied and it is always a good time. A nice thing for those of us on Facebook is that if you become a friend of Mazatlán Cultura they invite you to all events so you always know what’s going on. In previous years we had to work at it to know what was happening around town.
The weather has been perfect and we are enjoying sleeping with the windows open. We’ve been swimming at the beach a few times lately, and the water has been perfect as well. All of the plants that had been damaged during Tropical Storm Rick have recovered and are enjoying the cooler weather, too.
Life is very good, and we are enjoying our third fall in Mazatlán.
The datura has recovered nicely!
