LOCATION: In our tiny house in Retama Village, Mission, Texas
WEATHER: Couldn’t ask for better. Sunny. High 78
I am thrilled that my childhood friend Nancy could visit us for a week. Living near Minneapolis, she took a non-stop Sun Country flight to Harlingen/South Padre Island airport which is nearby. I wish more of our Minnesota friends would do the same!
We stopped in a town near Mission where I was trying on clothes for the upcoming Retama Village fashion show. The town is a throwback from the 50s and the clothing store has kept its former look.
The town is full of antique shops, and we stopped at one to buy a fancy teacup for the fashion show/tea party.
After some rest in the afternoon, we attended one of our impromptu neighborhood happy hours, where people just gather in a cul-de-sac bringing chairs and drinks. Then, off to a line-dancing party at a nearby retirement community. Our Retama Village group has been practicing these new dances, and we danced with about 60 other people. Fun!
DINNER: Some of my leftover “award-winning” white chicken chili. Had to show it off to Nancy!
