My friend Sloan emailed me and asked what a typical day is like for us, so here it is. We wake up late and whoever feels like it walks the few blocks to town to get the baguette and pastries for the day. After a late breakfast we read, play cards, and sit outside on the patio in the sun. Current gin score, Lucy 475, Wendy 73. She asked me if I was embarrassed to be losing so badly to a 13 year old and I told her I was going to come back. I'm the tortoise not the hare. Around 1:00 my time, 7 a.m. your time I skype with David and Arch to see how they are doing, and what upcoming things they have at school and work. On Tuesdays I skype with my class during their computer time, and yesterday I was the mystery (skype) reader for David's class. Everything closes in town between 12 and 2 for a lunch break. We eat our lunch from the market then and then have more reading, homework, blogging, emailing, and cards. Late afternoon we head out for our afternoon walk. We open the door and decide to either head left or right. We might end up in town, at the park, or finding something new. Dinner is around 8. We have downloaded a couple of movies on our laptops. I watched Catch and Release with Jennifer Garner last night and thought it was great. But we haven't watched t.v. in 5 weeks and I haven't blow dried my hair in 5 weeks either. Lucy and I are like college roommates. We don't have a dishwasher so we share the washing duties. We share a bathroom so we are considerate of keeping the sink area clean. We go to bed at the same time and wake up at the same time. She plays her music for me and has taught me how to download songs for free from youtube. Some may call it boring, some may call it rejuvinating.
