Slow Day

Being awakened at 5am by a car alarm is not a fun way to start the day. Fortunately, the alarm wasn't because a car was being stolen. The lady who lives across the back alley accidentally set hers off. I was able to go back to sleep and didn't wake up until 9. Surprised the heck out of myself. I haven't been able to sleep much past 7:30 since we've been here.

Today was another slow day. Did a couple loads of laundry and cleaned and organized the shelves in the laundry room. Oye! They were a disaster. Dusty and messy. Things had been tossed willy-nilly. I guess it's to be expected when you share your place with other people. We rent out our condo and there's a cleaning lady who cleans it between renters. It took me an hour to straighten things out.

Lots of pool time this afternoon that included plenty of socializing. I also spent some time catching up on some of the blogs I read.

Carpenter ants haven't been an issue this trip. There have been quite a few smaller ones but they haven't inundated us. I did squash one tonight that looked suspiciously like a carpenter ant so I'll have to keep an eye out.

The condo above us has a leak in the bathroom. There's a wet area on our bathroom ceiling. I contacted the condo administrator to see if he could contact the owner who happens to live in Mexico City but has family in Merida who uses the place periodically. I'm really hoping it gets taken care of.

And that's about it. A much shorter post than yesterday's.


  1. Great phrase..."willy-nilly"! I think it's as Canadian as "eh", eh?
    Love your blog

  2. Hi Carol. Welcome to my blog. Thanks for stopping by and also for the compliment. I haven't seen yours listed anywhere so I took a quick peek-a-boo. I like your blog, too, and will be adding it to my ever-expanding list.
