I have the winter doldrums.....

I’m in the winter doldrums. You know that time after the holidays when there is nothing going on…. I’ve almost recovered from surgery, I have a slight chest cold and it’s grey and cold here. I’ve walked my miles several times, but most days it’s just too cold and windy. Carlos is back to work after a month vacation and this week he’s in Omaha. He’ll be home next week and than he has several weeks in Miami! The Merida casa doesn’t seem to be advancing much right now and frankly I’m ready for it to surge ahead so I can see some results.
I’ve been spending my time reading through all the blogs and writing down places and restaurants to visit. I’m so jealous of many of the bloggers. They have so much wisdom to share… I soak it up. Their writings transport me to Merida and I learn so much from the information that they write about. Many times they verbalize what I am feeling but I am unable to communicate. I hope they realize how important their sharing of information is to others!
So in the meantime I sit here in the midwest. In my head I am starting to plan furniture I need for the Merida house. I’ve been saving images of the furnishing I like to remind myself when it’s time to find them. Plans are to start the declutter process here so I know what I will take to Merida and what I will leave behind, sell or give away.
I’m really ready for spring and hoping we can spend time in March in Merida, but it’s looking like that may not happen…. 


  1. I'll second that. Bloggers on the scene fuel the rest of us still stateside or in Canada. My google map has dozens of virtual push-pins guided by recommendations I've found online. Once I'm there, I'll know right where to go when I don't feel like cooking.

  2. Yes, cold and grey I understand. Dreaming of Merida helps keep my spirits up. Hope you feel better soon. Here's an idea for a nice pick-me-up.
    Google "Mexico Bicentenario 2010 YouTube videos" It should bring up a group of videos made from different states throughout Mexico for the big celebration in 2010. They are breathtakingly beautiful.

  3. So sorry for the doldrums...Just think of how lucky you will be to have an awesome home here!! You will never suffer through snow again!! I believe you would love to work at this Spay/Neuter clinic..The most wonderful people!! I will blog more about it, but 12 hour days with surgeries are hard work. We are still loving it!! Hope you are doing well after surgery!!

  4. Hang in there Pat, it will all come together one day soon. The waiting just makes it sweeter.
