I got back thursday night and was greeted by some of my neighbors with hugs. Nice neighbors eh? I have been busy unloading the RV and catching up on bill paying and other errands. My old Bravada Olds mobile even started after two months sitting and waiting for my return.
My trees and other plants have done well, they look healthy and robust much to my relief. I am looking forward to getting flowers for the garden. I have a small problem with rain water getting under my doors. The problem is small because rain is infrequent here still I’ll have to get with my contractor to solve this issue-it is nothing money can’t fix 🙂
I have a bit of house work to do, it is surprising how much dust and dirt can accumulate when a house is closed up. I’ll be sweeping, mopping and dusting for a day or two more and then I have my furniture to put together which should keep me busy for a few days.
I got my television working and it looks great no more squinting at the screen. I have Dish network and my feed is from the west coast and my local stations are in San Diego so with that and CNN I stay up on the U.S. news, or as I refer to it the “Old Country”. I also get the spanish language station out of San Diego. I hope the spanish on TV will help me comprehend spanish better. I think I need more immersion in the language before I will greatly improve.
It does feel good to be home again. I occasionally wonder why I feel more at home in some foreign country trying to learn a new language than in the country of my birth. I don’t waste much time on this topic because even if I had an answer to the question it wouldn’t make any difference.
