Taking my mother to the grocery store in Mexico is never a good idea. Since it is a rather big store, I use their available wheelchair with its small basket. In no time flat she had filled it up. Reluctantly went and got a small cart which by the way...I love...as I had to push the cart and wheelchair at the same time,
Her weaknesses are fruits, vegetables and sweet bread. Yesterday we had to cook the nopalitos (tender cactus), and though it was in the 90's for the second consecutive day...made "caldo" to use the carrots, calabacitas, cilantro, chayote, potatoes and other vegetables we had in the refrigerator.
She went crazy buying rice, peruvian beans and yogurt. I have no idea why we can not find apple yogurt in the States.
Today I got the hula hoe out and went to work. Unfortunately, I barely made a dent. As if the weeds were not bad enough...after the recent rains we have mounds of pissy ants everywhere. That includes the kitchen.
Had to drive into town this afternoon when this blooming bougainvillea caught my eye. In this part of Texas even though the calendar says it is winter...in reality here Spring sprung a long time ago.
Good night. May you all have Terlingua Dreams.
