Almost Ready For The Holidays

This morning Carla (s/v Moody Mistress) and I take the local collectivo to Morales to shop at the Mega-Dispensa. Fronteras is busy, the roads are jammed as is the mini-bus, and Morales is a zoo. My oh my, everyone's out & about, in the shops, doing final Christmas shopping. I just want fresh spinach, mushrooms and ricotta cheese! I find those and also snow peas, which will be a special addition to tonight's stir-fry. It's an hour getting there, an hour getting back, and more than an hour shopping - actually mostly waiting in line to get checked out - which consumes the morning.
With that shopping trip, we're nearly ready to host the planned small holiday party of long-time friends. Lights are hung, special cookies baked, the exterior is clean & the cushions are back in their places. Just a bit more inside cleaning & organizing is needed.
