Tuesday, July 22Return visit to the hematologist gave us the opportunity to stop and get some photos of this new sculpture. It's some kind of memorial to firemen but we don't know what Bird Lady has to do with it. Maybe once it's all done we'll find out.
Wednesday, July 23The river has gotten really low (we're in the middle of winter, the dry season). There's a section along the river that's quite popular with tourists during the warmer months and when we went to the clinic to see my doctor, I snapped this shot with my phone. If you enlarge the photo, you can see a flat area and stairs across the way.
Monday, July 27We began working on the bedroom today. Ivan took outlet covers off...
Friday, July 31Went to Sta Rosa for a long weekend. First thing on the agenda was to meet with Miguel and Mari. They take care of the house for us, and are dear friends who help in other ways too. The men with our mission are going to get together at the house in September to keep working through policy issues and other items of business. Mari is going to fix and take lunch to the men each day, and Miguel will prepare an asado one evening.
We've had such an abnormally warm winter but I was still surprised to see flowers blooming in Mari's yard!
Sunday, August 2While in Sta. Rosa I worked my way through the many boxes we have stored out there. The back storeroom had gotten out of hand, to the point it was hard to open the door. It was time to get those things organized again! Plus we had a bunch of boxes stuck up in cubby holes above closets that we put out there when we moved from Canning Street to our casita (there just wasn't enough room in the garage). What was in all those boxes I wondered? While I worked on that, Ivan prepared meals. When I make a salad, I literally toss it all together. When he makes a salad, he creates art!
Wednesday, August 5Ivan prepared asado for lunch, grilling a chicken and a variety of vegetables. We are sure enjoying the grill he built!
Thursday, August 6I have a weather app on my phone and snapped this screen shot to show you what kind of winter weather we're having.
Saturday, August 8Self-explanatory collage:
Monday, August 10Lots of other stuff going on but I have been slowly progressing with the baby quilt. I finished "framing" the bottom (blue) section today and then laid the three sections out on the bed to see how they looked together.
