Moving Out to the Country

Spending time with myself for a change

semi-overcast 81 °F

Saturday, 10/30/10. I wanted to get this posting finished before I move into my little house in the country as I don’t know yet what the internet situation will be. I have located an internet café in a nearby town so I will be able to check email and post entries to my blog periodically. But until I get wireless internet service, contact will be sporadic at best.
I am spending a quiet day by the computer, catching up on my phone calls and emails. I also downloaded some free ebooks from Amazon so I’ll have something to read while out there. And finally, and most important, I am feverously downloading my favorite TV shows. I’ll download as many as I can today. There are two TV’s at the house, but not cable, so I don’t know what the selection for shows will be like.
Talked to my son Andy today and hoping to talk to my grandson before I head out.
There are two large grocery stores in the nearby town that we will be stopping at before reaching the house, so I am excited to see if I can get my complete list of items. Most importantly is my decaf coffee. I actually found a restaurant this morning where I ate breakfast that serves it. It is the first one I have run across in my Latin American experience.
Carlos, the homeowner who showed me all around yesterday, took me to a nearby restaurant where I will be and introduced me to the Chicago native owner, Sheila. The hamburger we had for lunch was wonderful, but these people don’t cook the French fries enough. I think it’s the kind of potato they use, but I usually tell them to fry them extra crispy.
There are a ton of restaurants around that I can go to, but in the interest of saving money, I will be doing a lot of cooking this month and staying home. I'm dying for a big pot of spaghetti! This is also going to be my contemplation month where I plan to write, pray and meditate a lot. Just want to spend some time with myself and God.
I want everyone who I know who is reading this blog that I miss you and can’t wait to see you again when this adventure completed. Hope you miss me too!
