still no internet
We are still waiting for our internet connection ~ it's now been over a week and I can't imagine what the hold-up is. I'll call again this afternoon although what work gets done on a Friday afternoon here, two weeks before Christmas? Not much. The local library will close today and not open again until after January 3rd. Gloria, the "librarian" who sits at her desk and does crafts which she then uses to decorate the lobby, works from 1 PM-6 PM (maybe) and clearly needs 3 weeks to recover from her daily grind.
We've almost got everything unpacked and put away. Mr. C finally opened his suitcase and emptied the contents on the bed so he could sort and refold all his various T-shirts and shorts. Both of us have decided we're leaving almost all our clothes here since we'll be flying down next year and want to travel light. Or at least that's the current plan. But the trip down was so easy that maybe . . . we'll see.
Lovely dinner party last night. Met some new residents. Saw old friends. The season is beginning on a happy note. Dago's tonight. If i don't have internet there will be no opera tomorrow and it's Aida which I don't want to miss. Listen to it for me, OK?
