YoucandoitBabe is Back Home


Got my ‘youcandoitbabe’ smart car back today and all is well but geeze the roads in Texas are terrible. You don’t notice it so much in a bigger car but the drive home wasn’t as pleasant as the drive up in the big loaner car, the roads I’ve driven on in NM are much better.

Monday I’ll drive GG to Truth or Consequences to do errands and fill my propane. finally!


Friends have come to my assistance yet again!

I can’t thank them enough for their willingness to give me a hand or show me how to do stuff. I am a pretty independent person, mostly willing and usually unafraid to try something new or face difficult challenges, but having willing neighborly hands available makes a huge difference in life and fine living.
Today Becca and Dan gave me a rod to place across the cab to hang clothes when I’m not traveling, this allows me to use the one closet I have to use as a pantry, which I sorely need. So instead of trying to find my groceries in these upper cabinets with doors that won’t stay open while I look for what I need I’ll have a proper pantry with shelves. It’s the little things in life worth while, not the big hard challenges that we face because we have to, its small moments and satisfying pleasures that make us smile.


I discovered a new storage space, funny how I’m finding out more about GG still after living with her for 8 months. Yes! It’s been 8 months, ownership in a year in August. We will have to celebrate! Maybe I’ll make a Panamanian dinner for my friends with ropa vieja, arroz con algo y platanos. Or patacones. Always interesting cooking in my tiny kitchen but I managed with spaghetti so I think it will be fine. oh yeah, and flan de la casa.
