It's The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year!


It's finally here, the cold weather is sinking in, or at least as cold as it can get in Monterrey. This morning here on the ranch at 6 a.m. it is a cold 12 C. The chill is in the house and it is time to start firing up the chimney at night, enjoy the crackling of a warm fire and a glass of wine. I need to think about getting out the Christmas tree and hanging the ornaments.

The rv Christmas tree is brushed off and ready to go for its journey to Veracruz in December. Can't wait to hit the road. I am having the hitch installed this week on the Durango along with the brake controller. This is going to be one swell trip ringing in the beginning of unofficial retirement.
The next four weekends I am teaching a certification course for teachers called the TKT (Teacher Knowledge Test) which is written and given to teachers around the world by Cambridge University. There are three modules and four sessions per module. This should keep me busy although it is on Friday from 4 to 8 and on Saturday from 8 to 5. One group on Friday and two on Saturday. The SEP (education department) has really taken English seriously over the last few years and is doing everything they can to bring the teachers up to speed.
