Last week was a week of goodbyes and last times for 6 months. This was intended to be my last post from Leavenworth but has turned out to be my first post from Aguascalientes.
Saturday night was the last music night at the senior center. I will miss my group of friends there and the music we enjoyed throughout the season.
I went to church on Sunday and had one last brunch at the golf course with friends.
Monday night was my last life group for a while. This is the fourth year I’ve been in the group and will really miss our weekly times spent together.
Tuesday was farewell day to Wenatchee. Karen and I spent the day there and on our way back we hit the drive-thru at Wendy’s for one last frosty. We also had one last apple fritter from the bakery in Cashmere that day.
Wednesday was my last lunch at the senior center and my last bridge game with Hilda, Karen and Betsy.
Thursday Linda and I had one last lunch in Cashmere at Agave Azul. And I said goodbye to my tree, which has lost so many leaves.
On Friday I finished packing and went for one last walk with Joyce and Coco. I will miss our evening walks when I am back in Mexico.
On Saturday Ann took me to Peshastin to get the shuttle to Sea-Tac. Then a flight to LAX and then a flight to Guadalajara. The last leg was a bus ride to Aguascalientes.
It’s now Monday afternoon here in Aguascalientes, temperature in low 80s, bright and sunny.
I had breakfast at my favorite gordita stand. The lady who runs it welcomed me back. A 96 year old neighbor was there and we enjoyed a lively conversation. Apparently I haven’t forgotten my Spanish.
Tomorrow I look forward to spending the day with my friend Iracema and her one year old son.
Time for a siesta now.
