We got to the swim area early and set up our chairs. There were lots of people busy setting up their instruments and getting food and drink ready. When everyone was settled in the music started. The band played a variety of latin music from South America, Cuba and Mexico. There was a booth selling Pozole Soup which we all enjoyed. I had never had it before but I am now adding it to my list of recipes to make! It was fairly cool in the evening which was so welcoming after the hot evenings we had been experiencing in Orange County. The music made you want to move your feet and we were up and dancing after the sun went down!
We had brunch at Stillwell's in the morning and then we drove downtown to "The Village" to watch the Angel game at Chad's place. Letty and Carol decided to go shopping and spent the afternoon in the local shops. Later that evening we were going to be heading to the swim beach for an outdoor concert.
While the guys were golfing we headed off to The Village for shopping and an afternoon at the spa. We ended the day with ice cream! When we got back to the cabin the guys knew we were relaxed, actually very, very relaxed and we told the guys we didn't want to go out for dinner so they barbecued chicken, cooked corn on the cob, salad. After dinner we watched Wolverine. Now I am sure most of you know by now it is very difficult for me to sit and watch TV heaven forbid a movie but watching Hugh Jackman was really easy!
Last year we had fish in our fountain but sadly they perished! This summer we decided to try again. I went to the pet store and rescued some "feeder" fish from an untimely death! Ray went and purchased water hyacinths and some other floating plants to add to their new home. Low and behold a few weeks later the hyacinths began to bloom! Aren't they beautiful? Of course we are enjoying them and once in a while we get a visitor late at night who wears a mask and tries to catch the fish to eat! I can't blame the little racoon, as I too enjoy a good fish dinner!
We decided to get off the I-40 and take the historical Route 66 and visit some of the old towns on the highway while collecting rocks!

I know many of you have asked me about my new workplace. Well here are some pictures to give you an idea of my new office area. I am the one who sits behind the counter in the reception area of this high school. It is quite a large area which is nice. The one thing that is sort of sad is that my computer is probably about 6 years old. This is hard for me as we had Macs at my old school and I have to say that we were pretty fortunate when it came to the office staff we always had new computers and monitors. Well you know the door is always open and I will leave the light on if you feel the urge to come and visit me!
