LOCATION: In our tiny house in Mission, Texas
WEATHER: BEAUTIFUL! The sun came roaring back. No wind. High 80
CLASSES: 2 water aerobics
I took an extra long morning walk since I didn’t have to get back for yoga class. (The craft room is reserved for the sewing ladies on Thursdays). I started with gloves and a jacket, but quickly stripped down to T-shirt only (and pants!)
It was almost 70 at noon, the time for the first water aerobics class. Two other brave souls joined me. Both have had falls and are doing the water aerobics as part of their physical therapy program.
Back home, George and I rushed around getting ready for my final Spanish class. We were in luck with the weather. We dragged all of our living room furniture out so we could have the class outdoors. I separated the chairs out so that couples would be together and 6+ feet apart from the next couple. When we first moved here, we bought minimal furniture. We selected indoor/outdoor furniture so we could do what we did today…moved almost everything out. I even took out my island (that I use for dish-drying) to use as a bar!
We sipped on my world-famous margaritas during the class, then munched on chips, guacamole, pico de gallo, and salsa as we chatted (mostly in English) 🙂 We have had 16 classes, and the students really seemed to appreciate what they have learned.
A few couples lingered on, and we built a bonfire. Once the sun goes down, it cools off quite a bit.
DINNER: Pasta with gigantic shrimp. On his last fishing trip, George bought some HUGE shrimp at the beach. I sauteed them with onion and garlic. To make a sauce, I melted just a bit of cream cheese and added basil pesto and white wine. It turned out swell, and was super easy!
