Later in the afternoon I did a full set of my exercises, thank you all for getting me going. It was not easy but I thought of each one of you and pushed through. However I only did the one set, tomorrow I will strive for two sets, am and pm 😎
Hard to believe it is already December. One month left in 2022. Was it just me or did the year fly by?
Thank you all so very much for your positive reinforcement of my exercise program. For the first time since November 8th I had an online session this afternoon with my kinesiologist. Got a few repeats to continue with and some new ones to work on. She is also working on helping me strengthen my knee. Which by the way, is more improved today than yesterday.
A few photos from a day as seen from our RV site here on the Isla.
Where has the month gone? We arrived here two weeks ago yesterday. And of course 17 days ago is when I injured my right knee. It was better yesterday and again today. I started my kinesiology exercises three days ago. A different soreness but overall better. I have an online session booked with my therapist for tomorrow 😎 If I don’t get back into the program soon I will be so tempted to ditch the entire thing and just sit around. Hint, hint, I am asking for support and encouragement 😳
We arrived here November 15th. On November 17th we all went to the beach for the first time. However Colin dropped me off at El Velero’s on the way back and carried on to hose off the salt on the girls and to dry them and leave them in the RV. He came back and we enjoyed our visit with some new people here in RV1. I wrote back then that the music got me up to dance. Note to self, you are too old to do the twist.
I was feeling better just two days ago on Friday November 26th and so I went to the far end of the beach with my family. It was too much for me. I wrote about this the other but I wanted to set the stage for these photos. We had a wonderful time. I have been a good girl and iced and used heat the past two days. I am on the mend 😉 I really miss being on the beach everyday.
The white house in the middle of the above phone is being rented by long time friends Nancy & Randy. Hard to see but they are standing on their patio under that first palapa watching all of our activity. They used to RV here at Tres Amigos and we have remained friends ever since. How long ago was that Nancy? The large white house on the left is being built by other friends from RV2.
I thought that I was almost ‘fixed’ but my knee is still giving me grief. We all actually went to the beach together for a bit yesterday but it was too much for me, even though we drove to the end of the beach so minimal walking. Hopefully I will have those fun photos for you tomorrow or the next day. I am a bit behind in my blogging. Sitting at the computer aggravates my knee 😥
Last night we had a different sunset.
All four of us are still enjoying every single moment of every bit of the day. Many new friends here in the park. We have not one single complaint 😎 Happy to be in paradise.
I have been busy enjoying paradise. However I have also been nursing a sore right knee. It was sore enough that I thought I had torn another meniscus. However sitting and elevating my leg has helped. Poco a poco. Sitting at the computer is not good for me at the moment. I am using both gel packs and heat.
The girls are doing great at the beach as per Colin. I only went the first time.
We have had two musical happy hours. Not planned but they had to happen, more on that next post. The universe just seems to be directing what we are doing. Life can’t be much better. Most is important is that we are happy. More details on the last few days very soon.
This sunset photo essay is dedicated to my very very special friends who live in Virginia. Sandy and Rex I thank you for becoming a part of our lives. I thank you for always being there for us with your encouragement, support and traveling mercies. Sending you special hugs. We are so looking forward to seeing you both early 2023.
We all got home and then there was a knock on the RV, Michelle was about to start a cooking demonstration on how the make the best guacamole ever. It was fabulous 😛
We were supposed to take the girls to the beach today but life got in the way of that. Without planning it we got our stuff out of the bodaga and got the dust screen up as well as the dog fence.
A dog pen fence had been set up earlier, however we had no idea that the girls were able to jump the wall and walk along it and then take off. They have grown are now much longer/taller and hence can jump up.They got us into trouble today. So Colin had to restructure the fence where we normally don’t have one. A bit of this and a bit of that. RV 2 held a welcome happy hour today at 4:30PM ( really nice of them ). We were both just too tired to go. My energy level is almost zip and I am still in pain. Fortunately our wooden steps that came out of storage today are very helpful to me getting into out of the RV.
Three RV’s came into RV1 yesterday and another three today. David the manager has more RV’s wanting to be here than there are available sites. What is happening is that those who are passing through and staying only a week or so now want to spend the winter here. I was surprised to discover the David has over 100 reservations for April 😯 The solar eclipse is happening and this is the place to be.
I really hate to write this but the truth must be told. We are bad parents 😳 I told Colin that it was time to give the girls their lunch. That is when he realized he had never given them breakfast. We feel so very badly. Neither of them indicated to us that we had messed up. But we were distracted by what was happening around us and likely missed their signals.
A beach visit has not yet happened. I wanted to take them the first day but Colin thought it best to wait until today for a variety of reasons. Because of the kind of day we had, when in Mexico you have to go with the flow, the beach never happened. Tomorrow will revolve around the chocolates.
We are happy with where we are at in our set up. No reason to rush and get it all done as we have in the past. Time to stop and watch the waves. Plus my body is old and sore. However I am positive that that is going to change.
Love of all your comments and emails. Wish that you could all be here with me.
No problems whatsoever. All is well and paradise is still here. However I am exhausted ( as are the girls). Can you believe I napped through sunset? The girls are happy and barely barking due to a device I am using. We parked and set up for four hours than we relaxed with wine and lunch outside.
I know how some of you worry so this is to let you know that we are 100%.
Tomorrow there will photos and more details.
Looks like everyone here is in bed at 8:10PM. Next it is dinner for us and then an early bedtime.
