"Away" is a place not found on a map, but you'll know you're there when you get there. And then it happens. One day you wake up and you're in this place where everything feels right. Your heart is calm, your soul is light, your thoughts are positive and your vision is clear. Your faith is stronger than ever and you're at peace. At peace with where you've been and with what you've been through and at peace with where you are headed. A place called away.
So if you are waiting to hear about some wild adventure today, I'm here to disappoint you!!! Kind of a sit around, lay around, do not much, kinda day for me. Sue did do some wallpapering today. It makes a huge difference to the interior with the nice clean light coloured paper.

A little funny story about Archie for you. This morning a turkey vulture landed on a sign post near our MH. Archie didn't think much of that and started to bark and head towards it. He was bound he was going to scare it away. As he got closer to it the vulture did the wing spread and it was about 4 feet wide. Well Archie turned tail and ran as fast as he could for the MH. I think he thought his time had come. He will be a little more choosy who he chases from now on.
This afternoon I got an email from Sandra with a nice Christmas picture that she took the other day. It is sometimes hard for us to realize that we are only a couple weeks from Christmas when the daytime temperatures are in the high 20's. I do hope that all of our family are getting excited for the season. We hope everyone gets to spend time with the ones they love, and mostly that the spirit of Christmas wells up in the hearts of all of our kids and grandkids and of course our friends. Lets all try to make someone's Christmas a little better this year!! Here's to a great Christmas season.
I did a little map of our travels over the last few days. Most of what we saw was within 20 kms of where we are staying. And we never saw a single person who was wanting to kill us or rob us!!! After 5 years in Mexico I think that although one should be aware of their surroundings, for the most part, people are good people and do not wish to harm anyone. We have encountered nothing but waves and smiles from everyone we have interacted with.
The view out our window tonight.
Our day was great and we topped it off with a nice chat with our friends. Due to darkness, we decided to continue on in the morning. Good Nite!!
