This was a busy week for Yunuen and me. We drove down to Mexico last Sunday for dinner and some sweet Nintendo WII tennis competition. I believe I am already considered a threat amongst the family with that. We drove back to Mexico on Wednesday to meet Bruce and Jaime along with Yun’s parents. The meeting was for an upcoming church plant in Nogales and to explore what opportunities existed for medical missions in that city. We met at La Roca and had a great time and enjoyed some tasty food.
My uncle Dennis came into town this week for his annual flight training. We were able to meet up with him last night for sushi and a visit to Bevmo! Bevmo is a grocery store sized liquor store that has thousands of wine selections and a plethora of imported beer. I bought a bottle of Zhiguliovskoye, a Russian beer from Moscow. I am anxiously anticipating the consumption of that. Yun picked out a Riesling from Chateau Ste. Michelle, a Columbia Valley wine from a vineyard just up the street from my sister’s house. We like Columbia Valley wines quite a lot. I experimented with a bottle of Petite Sirah by Rosenblum Cellars per Dennis’ recommendation. And as if this place could be any greater, they also have a decent cigar selection! I was able to restrain myself though given the order of Gurkah’s I had purchased earlier that day!
Scout seems to be doing well with the transition into our home. We gave him a bath/shower outside today to help reduce his dog-stank. We like him a great deal and have had a lot of fun with him. I take him for a long ride every morning and then the same when I get home from work. There’s been a few times when I have taken him out to the desert and let him chase my truck. He’s able to do a 20mph sprint for nearly a mile.
Our tomatoes continue to do really well. I transplanted 6 Walla Walla onions I had begun growing at work in March today. I’m hoping they’ll be able to endure our sun. My Armenian cucumbers are doing exceptionally well and has recently started blossoming, so I anticipate good things to come soon. We have some bell peppers doing pretty well likewise.
We’re headed back to Mexico now for some carne asada and a bit Wii tennis rematch!
