Last month we returned to Kino with Matt and Dana, who brought Charles and Julie with them. Because there were more of us than usual, we were able to find an affordable palace right on the beach. The place was magnifico. I think we were all inspired to buy land in Tucson and replicate it.
Our steak tradition continues. Matt brought some gargantuan fillets that were perhaps his best work yet. We had lots of wine and cigars for accompaniment.
This is probably the best time of year to be on the beach in Northern Mexico. The temperature is still pretty high, but much more tolerable than just a few months past. We didn’t spend much time on the beach though.
Since Scout is over 15 years old now, he doesn’t have much time left. It’s quite possible this was his last trip to the beach. I hope that’s not the case, but just in case, we made sure to get as much beach into the day as we could.
I had a chance travel to Tucson a couple weeks ago. We have some big decisions to make so I went seeking counsel. The steaks were magnifico.
I woke up yesterday to a tarantula strolling casually past me. We have never had one in the house before. I didn’t know what to do, so my instinct was to kill it. What a mess that made.
Matt and Dana recently returned from Morocco with some treasures for us that imcluded these fine looking clothes. I look so good.
Abraham and Martha had another baby shower at Gabby’s house this evening. There should probably be a limit to how many showers one can have. But the food is always good.
I spend some time changing the bulbs and cleaning the blades of the ceiling fans today. Nearly died.
David invited me to their families country house (not sure what else to call it) yesterday for some carne asada and to meet their Canadian friends that live here in town. The food was great but the plague of flies and heat was a bit much.
We have seen better days and we miss them. Last Friday, Yun and I were at the store when she complained of some abdominal pain. She rested a while in the office and after an hour or so decided to drive home. By the time she made it home, she was much worse, so much so that she needed to be rushed to the hospital. I met her there.
We spent all night in the ER while she underwent an array of various tests. Nothing found was conclusive. Her pain increased. We checked into the hospital that night and remained Saturday, Sunday, Monday, and we continue therr today (Tuesday). She had a surgery yesterday that took somewhere between 2-3 hours, but I wasn’t able to see her for a total of 5 hours.
In addition to a number of cysts, of which some have broken and their inner fluid spread throughout her body, she also has endometrial tissue connecting some of her organs that should not be connected. It was rather complicated we were told to detangle it all.
She has been in immense pain. Hopefully that is now past. And hopefully tomorrow we can return to our own bed.
Last night Sergio and I started a new class from Reformed Theological Seminary. The class is “Ecclesiology and Scraments” and thus far has been mostly great. We finished the first three classes last night. There were moments that were profound, but a few others that were rather tangential. We have to be finished in 2 months.
Sergio was kind enough to bring a Belgian sour last night that has been aging for a few years. It was quite spectacular.
