The forecast is for the rest of the day is for more of the rain we've had the past week, but with a promise of sun Monday and Tuesday, then back to rain and wind, thunder and lightning, and all the rest of that fun stuff Wednesday. Yup, it is definitely time for more clothes. Be right back...
Ah, that's better. I even found a scarf.
|Ah, there we go!|
Thanks to Lenovo's photo capabilities with it's cute little hats and other accessories, I have my fuzzy hat. Not a big improvement, but better than nothing.
Okay, maybe I shouldn't be complaining about the weather, but there's two ways about it--it's downright ugly today. I seriously doubt I'll get any surf-splashing this week, but I might go out into the yard and wade in the ditches. That's always good for a laugh or two. The lawn is like a sponge. Walking on it, my feet go squish, squish, squish.
We've both been busy the last couple of months since our return to Costa Rica. Bob takes almost daily trips to the corner store (about a mile from the house) on his bike. We were forced to retire the Jeep earlier this month. It cost way too much to keep it running, and when it was fixed, the "fix" usually lasted about a week. Add that to the necessity of paying for insurance and taxes and air-care (a real joke) and we realized buses, taxis and the bicycle made a whole lot more sense. Once a week or so, I take a bus to either Cahuita or Puerto Viejo and prowl the larger supermarkets (also a joke) for some of the things we can't get in the corner store. Right now, I'm longing for some clams but no one is carrying them at all, fresh or canned. Canned mussels, yes, but I really don't want "Manhattan Mussel Chowder." Somehow, it just doesn't have the same cachet. If my craving grows too strong, it may require a long, tedious bus trip to Ciudad Limón in the hope of finding some there. Note to self: Next year, add a few cans of clams to the salmon and tuna I make Bob carry in his suitcase. Hey, he's stronger than I am!
If these little birds fascinate you as they do me, check out YouTube for videos on hummingbirds. Unfortunately, the PBS video I watched a while back is no longer available.
When you're all done here, I hope you'll take the time to visit my other site at www.judyggill.com where you can learn more about the weird (and sometimes wonderful) life Bob and I lead in our peripatetic fashion.
