Spic and Span

8AM - Spic and Span
MsTioga is becoming sooooo Spic and Span! We have been seriously cleaning house for about a week, and you would not believe the changes inside MsTioga!

The cabinet which used to store all of Mr. Datastorm's electrical stuff, now houses our two laptop computers and misc electrical things. When I want to use a laptop, there they are in the cabinet above our computer workstation. Even the computer power supplies are in the cabinet, and already plugged into our 120 volt AC circuit. No more "hanging" electrical cords. Everything tucked away and tidy!

Does this seem like a small thing to you? Maybe it is. But it gives sooooo much joy to me. To have a place for everything. And everything in its place. I love it sooooo much!

11AM - A maid for MsTioga!
Pete & Jimena arranged for a big cleaning for the inside of MsTioga. Just down the street from Pete & Jimena's home lives Doña Chela, who works as their maid.

Doña Chela is a remarkable woman. She is able to do almost anything. Besides working like a dynamo, she repairs broken mechanical things, knows all about plants, flowers and trees. She knows everybody in the community and is respected by all.

Doña Chela and her sister Doña Mari cleaned the inside of MsTioga today. And what a job they did! Everything was cleaned. Even all the mini-blinds [which as you may know, are soooo hard to clean].

It cost 200 pesos for the cleaning job [$16US].

5PM - Sherushi
I'm treating Pete and Jimena out for supper this evening. There is a Japanese habachi restaurant in San Juan del Rio named, "Sherushi." None of us have ever been to Sherushi. MsTioga and I Nite Camped around the corner from this restaurant.

It looks fancy schmancy!

9PM - The food and experience was wonderful
I am soooo sorry for forgetting to take New Mavicita along to Shirushi! We all loved watching the chef at the habachi preparing our supper. What a good experience, for the three of us.

It's just like Benihana, but 1/3 the cost.

I decided to make Nite Camp at Pete & Jimena's home. Tequisquiapan is over run with tourists celebrating Semana Santa [Easter week]. Hardly any parking places!
