The three of us took the ferry to Cancun yesterday and did our every other month total stock up shopping excursion. They're building this new huge pier next to the old huge wooden one. That will make three docks in a row with hardly any room for boats to negotiate in between them. It will be verrrry interesting to see what the heck they are planning to do with it.
Nothing exciting to report from Cancun. Just that we know better than to go shopping over there on Sunday when the entire population of Mexico has the day off. We wanted to go on Saturday but events kept us from going. (the beach was calling!) We came back with our backpacks stuffed to bursting and with a cooler full of meat that was so heavy that L had to carry it using both hands. We didn't dare carry it by the straps. Although grocery/stocking up shopping is always a big chore, we did get to have one of those great hotdogs they sell at the deli in front of CostCo.
For dinner last night, I broke out the charcoal grill. Yes, we use actually charcoal, not the brickettes that you buy in a bag. Grilled us up our splurge item of T-bone steaks. Almost a pound each and they were $3.80US each! Had some frozen corn on the cob in the freezer. Add a green salad with fresh veggies and we had ourselves a really nice American style dinner. The cats loved the fat and bones!
Today I have to reorganize the pantry. All 3 shelves. Ugh. It has gotten to the point where we can't find anything due to the disorganization. I mean really. Soup on the same shelf with jelly and tomato sauces! What is this world coming to. Good inside job for a bitterly cold day.
As I was typing this, I heard voices, English speaking voices, outside and the names of our neighbors being spoken. I went to investigate. Some American dude from down the street was warning our tenants next door (who leave on Wednesday) to be careful because of all the robberies (get it straight. No one was robbed. We were burglared!). Tenant was freaking out, thinking that some madman is running around breaking into homes at night and physically assaulting the inhabitants. My how these stories get turned around. I calmed him down, lied and said nothing happened here and, in the process, gave nosey neighbor from down the street several of my best i-hate-you-you-interfering-old-fart glares. Then I said I had work to do (finish this post!) and shut the door on them.
