Yesterday. I continued to unpack. I finally got a small TV working. I can now watch DVD’s in addition to YouTube (DVD’s won’t play on my laptop). I have no TV service as such and really don’t want it. I prefer watching things I find on the Internet such as YouTube, Netflix, Iheartradio, Hulu, etc. I have a bigger TV, that I would like to use for those, but I haven’t been able to find its stand. I am searching through every box. I have some audiobooks that I listen to as I drive. However, I found out when I lived in Chaco Canyon, that it’s very enjoyable to put on an audiobook, turn off the lights, light a few candles and some incense, sit in an easy-chair, chill, and focus on the narrator’s voice. I haven’t done it here yet, but I probably will soon.
Last night, I took a break and went up to Ameca’s in DeWitt. I had the Fajitas Gabriel (pictured). It was terrific.
My allergies started to attack me then and they haven’t relented yet. I have been battling them all day. I have also been continuing to unpack and watching the X-Files on DVD.

In addition to the usual beef, chicken, and pork, it also has bay scallops, crab (probably imitation), shrimp, and tilapia. The tilapia and skewered shrimp sit on half a grilled onion. In the background are beans, Spanish rice, and lettuce with guacamole.
I haven’t written anything into my manuscript this weekend, but I have come up with an idea for a twist at the end. I am not certain if I will go with it. I am looking for an ending that will be a complete shock. I know there’s a good one out there in the literary ether. I just have to find it.
