It’s beautiful day in Caballo
We are getting some great weather,. but it has so hot that my garden has been a total failure, see my tiny carrots growing in a cup! Sitting on my world map painted table
Last night was perfect for a walk, then sitting down outside with my guitar and a glass of wine. I love tuning my little guitar and then strumming a while for my own enjoyment if not for others……..so far no complaints.
Our 106 temperatures has come down nicely so my flowers, those which have survived have another chance to flower and make my world beautiful. I’ve strung mini solar light in my tree so the evening is very pleasant. I have the smallest RV in the park but the best patio because I have the smallest RV and smallest car, there are some huge beauties parked here now, some come and go and others like me don’t want to leave.
But I do want to leave. A short trip to see my gente.
I want to see my people, when is the best time to travel now? I’m even feeling cautious driving the RV where as before I was happy driving across country. Charley hates it, he doesn’t like going in the car either. I was thinking maybe I’d go for Christmas but that might not be the best drive, might have snow and that would not be good, I need perfect conditions for the long drive. Covid 19 is also a concern for everyone but when will end!! I’m thinking maybe October is the best time to go, before elections.
Went shopping yesterday with two friends.
I hate shopping!
But the is a new store in Truth or Consequences. Morning Star Outfitters. It’s a bit up scale for T or C so I hope it has better luck than so many small businesses. There are so many empty shops here, but that was like that before Covid. It’s really a cool small town, it’s like a mini Santa Fe with at least 6 galleries in town, lots of small shops and colorful street art. We went shopping in the morning and everything was closed, until much later in the day when they would open for a couple hours but most places had notices in their window inviting clients to make appointments for private viewing. The town was just dead, no place to eat in town. On the way out of town we stopped for lunch at a great Mexican food out on the patio.
You know that New Mexico has been a good place to be during Covid, our numbers are good and everyone wears a mask everywhere.
I find socializing to be very emotionally tiring, isn’t that silly, what with so few opportunities to socialize here I just like to be left alone. I know what they say about oldsters living alone and being lonely but I am not lonely and am able to go back to the group when I’m ready to see more than one person at a time. Might be too that I am a little short of hearing and when there are several conversations going at a time in groups I say goodnight because it is frustrating to only hear bits and pieces. Or say What? I may be a little bit judgmental too. Impatient. So much time spent in idle conversation, I’m just not good at it..I guess that if no one wanted to talk with me I would not like that either, confusing times.
I was just told “burgers at 6pm” through my window from a friend. you see, it’s very informal neighborly good people here, I had a ladies night Pizza birthday party for another friend a few nights ago. You can participate or not no one judges you or thinks you are unfriendly.
