So sometime in the night, these loud fireworks started randomly going off. Occasionally there would be a break of ten or fifteen minutes…just long enough to allow you to start to doze off, and then they would start again. Whiskey doesn’t like this noise at all, and even though she’s fairly deaf, some of the closer ones did bother her a fair bit.
December 12 is Our Lady of Guadalupe Day in Mexico, and all Mexican celebrate this day no matter their religion. The festivities start in most towns all over Mexico well before daybreak, and it was no different here. We were quick to get out of bed and get dressed and outside by 5:30am or so and they already had a fire going up near the house with quite a few people gathered around.
The decorations above the entranceway were all done with flowers.
I seemed a little more tired than Ruth, and I had a nap in the morning. I had another nap in the afternoon. In fact, other than reading my book and playing with Oso and his stick, I didn’t do very much all day! Ruth did some more hand laundry (a little every day), and seemed to keep busy enough with other things that she never had a nap. Hopefully the noisemakers stop at a decent hour tonight, but I wouldn’t count on it!
