A Quiet Peaceful Holiday

DSCF2524May your christmas be joyful, peaceful and satisfying. Here in San Felipe mine is definitely peaceful, very few people stayed for the holidays here at Pete‘s Camp. My street is almost empty of residents a strange sight at this time of year. One of the things that was missing this christmas were the fire works -sheesh Mexico and no fireworks 😦 This place is getting to civilized for my tastes. Thankfully I found my favorite hot chocolate and matching that with a coffee liqueur

Spanish churros with hot chocolate.

and brandy in my tea and the holiday has been a merry one. I do miss my pets and some humans, of course, this is the first christmas in a long time I haven’t had a fur pal to snuggle. I will get another fur pal-when the time is right.

I have been a bit of a grump, grinch, Debby downer during the holidays and to all who have had to put up with this behavior I apologize. I have always had a difficult time with the holiday season and have often said to myself “If I had the money I’d go somewhere they don’t celebrate christmas and return when it is all over!”. I do like somethings about the holidays; the decorations, christmas lights, fire in the fireplace, eggnog, hot chocolate, fruit cake (ya I’m one of those!) and the smells of pine and goodies baking in the kitchen. Some things I could do without; drunks, insistent christmas music everywhere, crowds, phony sales on TV, phony baloney well wishes from people you know don’t like you, did I mention crowds?

Tonight I’m going to have a fire in my chiminea and watch the pretty flames and smell the mesquite burning and have a toast to al those who are not here this year. That list is a long sad one this year, Maybe next year will be better, let’s hope.

I am off for my daily walk on the beach and to enjoy the cool breeze and the sights of the birds and maybe there will be dolphins swimming off the beach today, who knows?

Making progress

I have had a hard time posting because the wifi here at the RV camp is not letting me stay on long enough to make a post or upload photos. I think it is because the equipment isn’t up to the task. So, I am awake at 3:30 in the morning and “viola”! I am on the internet 😀

I have been deep in into the procedure to acquire a permanent place here in San Felipe. Yesterday I met with the owner of Pete‘s Camp with my real estate agent and we discussed many issues. There are over 250 residential units and home owners association is an active organization, they have their own fire department, trash pick-up, plans for city potable water and there are land lines to every lot for telephone and electric-there is also available through the telephone company hard line internet connection (Yea!). I have already gotten through the owner a man to clear the lot of the sticky plants and the trailer is to moved too! I also got the scoop on the rules only three rules; no cactus fences, no water tanks on the roofs, and set backs are to be three feet/one meter from the lot line. I also got the name of a trusted builder recommended by the owner and the neighbors to do the construction of any kind on the lot.

I also met another neighbor, Yolanda, who is the sister-in-law of the owner she lives two lots down from me and works at the camp restaurant. I also met the owner’s wife she runs the kitchen. Another relative runs the office here in S.F. and two others run the office in the states.

I may have a lead on a car here one of the neighbors has an older two door jeep for sale and my neighbors are contacting him for particulars about it and I’ll get more information tomorrow, maybe.

So things are moving on by fits and starts, but moving on now to get the construction (Manuel) to put in the connections for electric and water system then I can move onto the lot, and figure what to do for a permanent residence there with a regular bath, kitchen etc. Lots of plans swirling in my head of course there will be obstacles to overcome but what fun doing that 🙂
