These are photos of how my house and garden looks this July. I am pleased with the growth of most of the garden, a few things have been less than spectacular but overall things have done well. When I get the town water flowing I’ll be able to plant more and have more things blooming!

The latest update on the house project is that the deal fell through. The owner wanted to up the land rent from $350 to $400 and cut the lease time and I balked and said no. Later the owner called the current lease holder and made an offer for the house the same offer I did. So at least the current occupant got out with some cash in hand.
On another note; I didn’t feel well the other day; tingling in the toes a little nausea and tired. I went to see the local MD and he had me take a EKG and compared it to a previous EKG. There was a difference and he suggested I see my Cardiologist in Tucson for a consultation and possible tests to explain the differences. Of course being a hypochondriac, this has been working on my mind and I’ve decided to go to Tucson and have this checked out. I have an appointment with my Cardiologist on Tuesday afternoon. I needed to go north for refills on my medications anyway so while doing that I’ll go to Tucson and take some tests and see if it is in my head or it is something else.
So now I’m packing the truck up and cleaning out my fridge as I don’t know how long I will be gone. This getting old stuff is a pain in the ass if it isn’t one thing giving you trouble it is another. I make another post when I get to Tucson.
I was talking to a friend and she told me about a house for sale in town owned by a man who is not returning to Mexico except to visit and it was at a very reasonable price. I have been to see the house twice. It has some issues that need to be addressed. I’ll list the issues later first is the photos of the house. It is small, it has two bedrooms and other that has to be finished so three bedrooms and three baths, a small patio with a laundry room, the living room is a good size and has a fireplace. The garage holds two vehicles end to end and the garage roof can be used as a patio as it has a spiral staircase that is very sturdy. The kitchen comes equipped with stove and fridge. The stove is gas there is a gas hot water heater.
Some of the issues are; Electrical wiring needs replacement, plumbing and toilets replaced, floor joists replaced in kitchen, floors leveled or replaced, unfinished room completed, patio redone, gas lines replaced, kitchen tiles replaced, AC installed. That’s the short list. I am still in the “Thinking About It Stage”.
