Just a few hours ago…

Today was day two of rain. The road is a mess but all of the pea gravel we put down when we got here really helped. Colin spent a good deal of time playing his guitar and cleaning the house. I remained glued to my computer. However I am making progress. We have chosen our bank and have an appointment there next week to set up accounts. Also Tuesday will have us meeting our new doctor. I have lists of lists now and will be working on health insurance next.

This was the only rainy day photo that I took. I can’t believe that the veggie truck came out in this weather.

The girls are not happy at missing their beach walk the past few days.They have so much extra energy.  However as soon as we open the door they stop in their tracks and turn around to come in. They do not like cold ( 64F ) and especially not rain. Funny how they don’t mind being in the cold ocean swimming 😎 Still working on getting my computer back up to normal. I looked at new ones online today. I will get a new one perhaps in June. My desktop is 21.5″ and the new iMacs are 24″. Colin just now informed me that he also will be getting a new iMac as he prefers the mouse 😮  We may or many not get a new laptop for use while travelling etc. We should be good for the next ten years or more. Surprise they come in a variety of colours which remind me of our first computer.

This was our first computer – ever. Circa 1998. We chose the strawberry one.

These were the original colours that were offered.

These are the new 2023 colours. Which would you choose? Any guesses on my choice? Might as well throw in a vote for Colin!

The rain petered out mid afternoon and Mother Nature gave us a colourful show.

For certain the next post will be that wonderful private party we attended.

    Orange for you! Colin red….to reflect those absolutely spectacular sunrise/sunsets you get to enjoy!!!

    1. Never thought of orange re the sunsets. I might have to rethink my colour choice.

    Purple will always be my first choice.

    1. It is a good choice but not ours.

    I would choose colors to match your decor but do love orange.

    There is SO much to do when establishing a new home in Mexico. Exciting time isn’t it? I thought I would never get to the end of our list last year.

    Good luck with your new doctor. I hope it’s mine. His last name begins with a “D” and his office is on the Malecon overlooking the ocean. He actually met Steve at the hospital for a colonoscopy and waited there until it was done and also arranged for a pay by cash good discount at the hospital.

    1. Glad that someone likes orange but it is not a clot that I enjoy, not even in flowers.

      Yes it is exciting but right now very tiring. So much to do before we head back to Canada. At least we will be living in the RV for the first few years.

      We just might have the same doctor. Gorgeous view. You come all the way down here for medical? Wow.

    Contessa & Colin, hope the earthquake didn’t affect U amigos, today ( 2-17-24 ).

    1. No earthquake near us at all.

    Purple for you and blue for Colin

  6. Pauline Watson says:

    I think you’ll pick the purple-y periwinkle-y colour and Colin maybe either the red or orange.
    Hope the weather warms up for you and the girls. 🙂

    1. No for me but Colin will take the red.

    Here is a late vote – the silver for both of you. Just perfect!
