I'm going to help but need help helping. Both need backpacks (mochilas) and the older needs lots of notebooks. Nahima just graduated from Kinder so needs a first grade uniform and shoes. Yare needs another uniform after two years. Both Yare and Nahima are doing well in school
Basically means meatballs but there are a number of ways to prepare them. Most floating in a tomato salsa or soup. Some fotos like the below are much sexier than mine but the meal is still good.
Nahima was over today helping mom clean my house and she always want's some of my spaghetti. I had just seen that Albondigas foto and asked if she would prefer that. Needed hamburger, some veggies and rice or bread crumbs so not real different. Off we went in the different direction.
Lorena had made these a few months ago so I knew that would be good. Opened my brown rice and it was full of mites. Had to send Yare off to buy some white rice and a few veggies. Came out great if not as sexy as better fotos.
Lorena just sent me this foto of the road in front of her house - the main road to Pinal Villa. They were over here a little earlier and they must have had to swim home. My 10" deep rain bucket is almost overflowing. Glad we did our shopping yesterday
I've been tired lately and get dizzy spells .... so Lorena suggested I sign up for Seguro Popular. She got a list of requirements and I had them all. You need a copy of your Passport, CURP, Visa Perrmanente and most recent electric bill. Find the SP office in the nearest Centro de Salud. They fill out everything and you just sign. They have a Pharmacy, do blood tests and it's all free. Someday we'll find out how the service is.
The construction of the house finished in April 2011 and I'm pretty much settled in. As of March 2014 I'm in preparation for rain mode for this coming summer. That includes sealing and painting things and dealing with drainage issues from last year.
