Hola mi amigos…

…life is not perfect it but it could always be worse. We are happy with where we are at the moment. Well if we could get just have a bit more heat from the sun then life might even be perfect. I have read that the local fruit orchards and veggie gardens are at least two weeks behind last spring and last spring was already late. Seems like we will have to start living in the moment and just go day by day. We can no longer rely on the que pasa of past years. Certainly this past winter showed us all that no matter where one is, be it the US, Europe or even Mexico and especially the Isla that the climate has changed.

Colin has done a great deal of work in the garden. He only has to turn the soil before we plant. I think we will wait a few weeks.

Today Colin and I took our parasite pill ( that we always take on our return from Mexico ). The first one was two weeks ago and today was the last one. We have never had a problem using this program. However I found it comical that the girls also got their monthly flea pill today. So today was the family day to get rid of bugs 😆

Today our window washers never showed despite that I booked them last August 12, 2022. I even booked this coming July 🙄 Fortunately the lady who booked me recalls that I had booked two sessions last August. They will be sending out a supervisor on Thursday to do the job. Great customer service. Just yesterday I got a call from my very very new dermatologist booking my annual check up next May/2024. How did we get to this point that we need to book so many appointments over a year in advance? I can barely keep track of this month never mind 13 months in advance.

It was actually nice  today to be able to start to clean up things that have been piled on my desk with no stress.

This afternoon we both heard a loon. I love loons but this is not their habitat. Perhaps it was just passing through. I can’t remember the last time I saw or heard a loon.. They have such a unique sound. 

I am quickly learning to live in the moment.

I have been wanting to share this with you for a few weeks. True photos taken in Mazatlan. You can see this almost unbelievable series of heron photos enjoying lunch by clicking on this Facebook link.  

In case you are not on Facebook here are a few teaser photos.

Lunch for the heron.

The series of photos on Facebook are spectacular. Hope you get to see them all.

A few evenings ago.

Wishing you all a relaxing evening and a peaceful sleep.

Just in case you are a Carol Burnett fan.

    We used to see a lot of loons and herons in Wisconsin. Not so much here. Theirs calls are truly magical.

    That is a huge meal for that heron!

    Beautiful sunset on the lake. We have been having beautiful early spring like weather. Might even get to plant our veggie garden this weekend which is early for us.

    I don’t think that beautiful bird will be hungry for a couple of meals. That was quite a catch. Life and the weather are really out of whack anymore. But like you said, all we can do is a day at a time and hope for the best. Give the girls a love from me.
