Today is a Wonderful Day

Today is a wonderful day in Trujillo.  When I look outside the sun is shining, and even as high up as we are, you can see how clear the bay is.  The wind is blowing at about 5-10 kph and is cool.  In fact, it is cool enough to need socks on my feet,  which is really cool for me.

I found two of the mosquito nets.  They were the ones for the single beds, but I have one spread out over our bed, and it will work for now.  No new mosquito bites for the last couple of days, so my irritability level is down tremendously.  Macho Man is happy about that.

Our tickets to the States are bought and paid for, and yes, they are both round trip.  We will be in Florida for 10 days.  My son-in-law is receiving an award from the Hollywood (Florida) Police Department for being Officer of the Year, so that's a good thing.  We will be getting our taxes done, not so good a thing.  We will also be seeing one of the Grandbrats, so that is a wonderful thing. 

The other Grandbrat is having her quinceñera in California, a good thing.  Unfortunately, we can't attend, so that is a sad thing, but we will be thinking about her that night.  For those of you who are not familiar with quinceñeras, that is an elaborate party which is a combination of a 15th birthday party, a debutant party and a right of passage.  It is very important in the Latin culture, and I am so sorry we cannot attend this one.  It is when a young Latina is recognized as no longer being a child, but a young lady.  Good for you, Grandbrat!  You deserve a beautiful day.

  1. I'm so glad to hear things are going better! I was thinking about you the other day when I was "in a funk." Seems sometimes something (or a series of things) gets me to a negative place, and then nothing seems right. Luckily, I am usually able to do something to find my Zen again. For me it was enjoying some quiet time to myself during naptime and doing some sewing. Everything looked different after that. I was hoping the same would happen for you. Enjoy the weather, and I hope the nets are a good solution for your mosquito problems.
