Settling into living in Retama Village, Nov 25, 2012

We arrived back from our trip to Europe about three weeks ago.  We were met at the airport by our next door neighbors, Roger and Dianne and they even had a great dinner for us to share for our homecoming! 

It took us about a week for us to acclimate to the six hour time change, jet lag sure does do its thing on us. 

Dianne had raised some beautiful tomato plants from seed and had saved two for me.

So we had to go shopping for some potting soil and pots for my new babies.  I also added some water retaining crystals to help maintain the water in the pots. 

Jump ahead two weeks, they are doing wonderful, even have a few tomatoes set.

Bob made a fruit bird feeder out of a 8” 1”x 2” cedar board and some screen for the bottom.

Another jump ahead…see who is eating, do believe it is a Golden Fronted Woodpecker.

Thanksgiving at Retama Village was awesome.  There were ten folks at our table.  All the dishes were delicious.

With Thanksgiving behind us, we decorated the coach for Christmas.

See our new bikes!  They came from Amazon with a few parts to assemble and adjust.  Now we can explore the area and the state park next door.

Meet our new betta named Guy.  He is a beauty.
