Time to warm up

The summer has ended and we have finished work. We are retired once again. Glorious! Although we both enjoyed working this year, especially the pay cheques, there’s no better feeling than not having to.

These last few weeks have been busy reconnecting with old friends and trying to get in as many cuddles with the grandkids as possible. Our family grew larger this summer as our newest grandson made a quick and exciting appearance in August.

We are often asked the question, “Don’t you miss your grandkids when you go away?” What a silly question. Of course we miss our grandkids and our family and even some friends.

Hopefully our grandkids see us as an inspiration and not as two old people, stuck at home that they are forced to visit on holidays and special occasions.

It is our wish that family and friends will visit us in Mexico so that we may play host and share the beauty and excitement of Mérida.

In the meantime we keep in touch almost daily. Isn’t technology great? Even though it isn’t the same as being there in person, distance apart doesn’t hinder connecting with each other as it once did.

So back to eating cheap meals at our favorite cocina economicas. Back to blaring music and dancing girls spilling out of tiendas and their tops. Back to chaotic city driving and the circle of death. Back to ridiculously high humidity making getting dressed a almost impossible sweaty chore.

Looks like we’ll need to do some weeding

Time for a return to unhurried daily strolls to the local market for sweet ripe papayas and fresh corn tortillas. Time for exploring and discovering hidden gems and searching for the perfect flan.

Time to warm up.
