We did our 2 mile walk around the park yesterday morning, and as we passed Whiskey's tree we noticed that some new blooms had popped out, and it had only been two days since we planted it there. Hopefully that's a sign that the tree will do really well in that spot.

Remember the other day when we were telling you about the window frames being made for the new addition here? Well Felipe and his men showed up yesterday to install them. We think they look great! Most windows are made like this in Mexico. The metalwork guys build them to your specifications, then they come and install them. Then, the glass guy comes and cuts the glass to fit the window frame and installs the glass to the frame.

Ruth did some reading in the afternoon, and I painted two more of the latches on the lower doors. And did some more polishing of Sherman. I am noticing that the polishing is much easier this time around, and I will make an effort to do it regularly down here. A little bit every day and it will be done!
Sherman is soooo enjoying the sunny skies and so are we!
A pretty view from our site.
Blondie, the neighbours dog, comes over to visit once a day. She's such a friendly gal, and enjoys getting a scratch behind the ears and a treat while she's here!
So today is market day in the town of Valle de Juarez and we enjoy going in and getting the fresh fruits and veggies. And Barb will take us to her house so we can use the fast internet to skype with relatives back in cold Canada! Speaking of cold, it was crisp clear night here last night and the temperature outside is only 2.3C (36F) as I type this! But, as soon as the sun hits the horizon things will warm up quickly. Not a cloud in the sky and I can now see the sun peeking over the hills. Another beautiful day in the works here in sunny Jalisco, Mexico!
Had a great big campfire last night!
