Yes, I am going to attempt catching up with Project 365. Because of the hearing loss/vertigo issue I haven't been out and about much until this past week (except to the doctors), plus it's really hard to snap many photos when your primary position is prone :) However, I do have an abundance of photos this week so let's not waste any more time...
I mentioned in a previous post that the surveyor had finally gotten around to doing our lot. Three of the corners were not really where we expected them to be, but this one was right on the money...
Before the first trip into Cordoba for a series of hearing tests I packed a lunch...and then left it sitting in the kitchen :( So we stopped at this little Greek style restaurant that had an appetizer plate for two, with hummus, stuffed grape leaves, tabouli and falafel. YUM!
We went for a walk one day while the vertigo was still a serious problem so there were frequent stops to sit down. At one stop we saw group of swans hanging out:
On the next trip into Cordoba for more tests we parked near this very cool oldie but goodie:
Last Saturday I painted the front side of these cupboard doors (they'll fit an odd storage space over a bathtub):
Monday I caved to the crave and made No Bakes:
FINALLY finished the baby quilt (that I started in January) on Tuesday. I didn't have enough of any one fabric to do the binding so used bits and pieces of several to continue the primary color theme:
This photo is mostly for my daughter. Tina, see in the very middle of the picture -- it says "Sushi Point"! It's a new place that just opened this year.
Even though the lake is rather stinky this week (smells like dead fish), it hasn't stopped people from enjoying it:
One of the ways a business will advertise here is to hire these cyclists with billboards. One of them also has a speaker system and broadcasts (loudly!) an accompanying audio advertisement.
Today I knocked my big white ceramic bowl off the table while sweeping :(
This morning Ivan finally found a telephone pole (he's been looking for weeks) that he could use as the corner post for our fence. He had to get that put in a.s.a.p. because we're having someone with a back hoe come in and level out that back area which is EXTREMELY uneven right now. There's a mound of dirt/debris right next to a very low area. Ivan knew it would be much, much easier to put that post in NOW rather than having to dig through several feet of dirt/debris after the fact.
I know, my life is so exciting...cupboard doors, fence posts, broken bowls...
What IS exciting is that we will be going on furlough IN EXACTLY ONE MONTH! We still have SO much to do before then. It's going to be a crazy busy month!
I'm hoping to meet some of my bloggy friends during the time we'll be in the states. Some of you live in far away places that we won't be going to, but hopefully I can connect with those in Georgia (our mission headquarters is in Lawrenceville), Indiana and Michigan. Oh, and we'll be making a trip to Arizona too.
