I have always loved rainy Sunday mornings. In the US, it meant curling up in bed with newspapers and magazines. Here on Isla Mujeres, it is a totally different story.
First there is the big decision of the day. Whether or not to get conchinita pibil, pulled pork Maya style. Then, whether or not to go to the beach. Rain settled that question, but today I snorkeled in the Easy Set pool, finally applying that underwater patch.
I am glad Jose my helper didn't know how to work the camera. I looked worse than a wet dog, which was on the job site as usual.
Lora and I started the day with some cold pizza from a small pizza it got last night from a newer place in La Gloria that I have been meaning to try. But was it great! 60 pesos, with pepperoni, sweet pepppers, onions and mushrooms. The menu calles for chorizo, but they gladly substituted. When in the area, look for Pochi and Noami's place. They also have enchiladas Suizas and Fettucini Alfredo.
Jose had made the pulled pork decision and gone to get 30 pesos worth along with Lora on her excercize run in and out of the golf cart. Me, I put on my bathing suit and got the snorkel ready while they were gone.
Jose transplanted a pineapple plant and its baby into a much bigger planter and drilled a couple holes in the planter he used for two tomato plants yesterday. We didn't check to see if it had a drain hole and the rains filled it to the top. So he got out the Kawasaki power drill, also knowns as a vroom vroom vroom here, and drilled several holes into the bottom of the wall.
We got the laundry down before the rain started again. After two days on the line, it was finally dry enough long enough on a windy night to do the job.
The sun is coming out just as I am about ready to take my siesta. But the shoulder does need rest. There is a ripe pineapple to cut up afterward and that will take muscle!
