Getting ready for the cold.
I have mentioned that we have planted ourselves here because of the climate. I love the ocean and beach, but I don't love the 85-98 degrees with humidity making you have to stay inside with the AC running.
You have all heard the saying " you can always put on more clothes, but you can only take off so much"
We picked this area plopped down in the Sierra Madres because of it's climate.
So we can put on a sweater or go to long sleeve shirts when we exit the house, which makes us comfy again.
Inside the house is another story.
We don't have any AC here, not that we need it, but we also don't have any heaters.
We have 3 fireplaces and the fireplaces need food.
A renewable resource to all the greenies.
We got the food supply for them today.
December, January and February are the coldest months here. Those are also the months that thoughts of warm beaches and swaying palm trees appear to dance in our heads.....
We are only about 3 to 4 hours away from the nice warm coast of Mexico.
Playa Azul is a sleepy little coast side village or Zihuatanejo is another place although not as sleepy. We are thinking about zipping westward for a getaway sometime soon.
Then there is Ixtapa if you really don't want any sleep at all and all that action makes you have to have daily trips to the ATM machine.
Anyway, we had our firewood delivery today. So now we can toss a few sticks into the fireplaces to keep from wearing multiple layers of clothing inside for the next few months.
It kind of reminds me of the old saying, water , water everywhere but not a drop to drink. We have acres of trees, but it is sugarpine, which clogs up the chimney like you wouldn't believe......
