thursday 02 august
i wake up and feel better, day one of my period! Fuck being a chick sometimes, lucky i stocked up on tampons before i left home as i see none in any of the shops i have been in. have a fruit smoothie for breakfast. as we grow our own berries there is never a shortage. there are slaters in the bath, probably since I cleaned their plant house in the bathroom.
it is an overcast morning but the birds are singing loud, which is cool and i spend the morning planting thyme in the garden, all up 165 plants. i find it very soothing, almost like a meditation, with my ipod on low so i can still hear the birds. I decide i have to cut my fingernails, digging with hands in the dirt is not cool with longish nails and the skin under my nails hurts! i sing as i work, haha!
Three of the dogs come over and give me wet doggy kisses. l am having trouble communicating with Roseio in the garden, so i just smile and say por favour (please) gracias (thank you) and si (yes) alot.I seriously need to get a belt, my shorts are falling down around my ass and if it wasn't for the long singlet i am wearing, there would be some serious builders crack happening.
After lunch she has me planting berries, i think they are rasberries, you need to plant each one individually, they are about the size of a limped dicked piece of thread. i plant 50 of them. i am going to buy flyspray and use it on the sly.
I get an email from Brent!!!! yay!!!!!:):):). They have a powercut at the internet shop, so i go next door and buy washing powder, beer and flyspray!!!! Mexican money confuses me, i know about pesos (i think) but then they chuck dollars in there?? The ladies at the shop were really helpful, everyone here is really honest:) i think tomorrow when i go for beer and internet i will take pen and paper and write down numbers and show them coins so i understand it better. Go home and clean out my wallet out of nz coins and us coins and look probably for the first time closely at the mexican money.
i use the flyspray, it doesnt smell too bad but it leaves an aftertaste in my mouth WTF!!! spend the next ten minutes removing the bodies and destroying any evidence before everyone comes back from Valle.
Im bored!! im too tired to explore the farm. do another round of removing dead bodies over a beer! study my spanish notes, thank god i have a good book on my ipad.
there are still shitloads of flies but the orgy has moved to the kitchen, contemplate spraying again but NO flies would probably give the game away.
