Corpus Christi

“After 60, if you don’t wake up aching in every joint, you’re probably dead?! “

Woke up and moved into my friend’s driveway! It seemed like a logical thing to do as she will be away and the park is full – although her permanent mobile is in this same park.  I love her Oak tree and grass and look forward to parking under them! This will free me, too, from the pressure to ‘sign up’ for a month at a time. I still have commitment issues!

Moving and packing up all the hoses and cables was heavy work. Of course I had to try and remain sweet smelling and ready for my date in Corpus Christi! I was going to meet another new friend who would show me something of the city.

Corpus Christi is lovely – and closer to Aransas Pass than I thought. I took a whole bunch of photos. The evening ended fairly early at a great restaurant – called Brewsters! Which is the name of the restaurant in my favourite Point Roberts! Brewsters had live music and was by the tall Bay Bridge,  recently been lit with lights that could change colour and dance and which were almost as watchable as fireworks! Another busy and magical day with another good, kind Texan friend.

Interesting – I’d like to ‘be level’ and more congruent in just about every aspect of ‘me’? I tend to push myself to my physical limit one day and then cycle to having to rest the next. I know I do that and yet still I do it? I must explore why?

Predictably I spent Sunday catching up with email and computer work.  I also talked to another and got some really useful feedback on my cards – I have a lot more to do marketing-wise, which I actually find exciting?!  Sadly. I said adieu to my friends and settled quietly into their driveway. Emails from South Padre Island extolled the virtues and beauty of that southernmost part of Texas – seems that, being part of a long thin island, it’s quite safe. And very close to Mexico. It was my original Texan destination – perhaps I’ll go check it out soon.

And…

Why am I so resistant to buckling down and doing the boring work I need to do? (Accounts!) I really do seem to try anything to get out of it?!
