The up side of clouds
We've had a very cloudy day today in Mazatlan and I have to admit that it's been a soft and peaceful day and I've enjoyed every minute of it. You know how it is in the summer when the sun is shining, you feel you need to get outside and do something to enjoy the weather. That's what it's like here. Every day we've been heading off--to the beach, to the malecon, to the plaza, to the store, taking the dogs out.... But today with the grey skies there was no sense that we were missing out. It was a day to stay at home, to catch up on ironing, reading, sweeping and just hanging out. I spent some time painting, Jamie's been studying, Harry oiled some hinges and changed some light bulbs. There's been time for a nap. I'm realizing that clouds can be a blessing too. Of course, it's easy for me to say because the weather forecast is for sunny skies tomorrow. And I hope it is because we're planning to take the little ferry over to Stone Island for the day.
