Checking In

One reason for this blog is to let friends and family know what is going on, and that all is well. I haven’t spent much time at my desk lately so I thought I’d write a note.

Yesterday we went to Volcan and Cerro Punta. It was a great day and photos will definitely be coming. This is an area where many of our vegetables are grown and it’s gorgeous.

I’ve also been cleaning up the yard a bit. The weather feels cooler and it’s a pleasure to be outside. The dry season has been very windy at times and many trees have lost a lot of their leaves, so there are tons of leaves to be cleaned up.

There is a photo challenge in the works. I’m behind in Bloggers for Peace, so there are couple of those posts coming at some point.

I also got out the Spanish verb book today. I’m at the end of my series of classes and since we want to do some traveling, I decided to take a break. But, there is no reason I can’t study on my own. I’m going to try and make that a priority before blogging and email and all the other things I tend to do.

We’ve also been having fun with friends and neighbors. We stopped by an art show in Bambito, near Volcan, where friends were exhibiting and had a nice visit with them. My kids are not going to believe this knowing how ticklish my feet are, but my friend painted my toenails. She did a great job without tickling! I can’t remember ever having nail polish on my toes before.


So, that’s the highlights from Panama. All is well and life is good.

    Like you my blog started out as a way to keep in touch with family and friends. I’m of the opinion that if my readership doesn’t want to see my personal opinions or the mundane in my life they will simply skip that day. It’s not all exciting, after all we live here, we’re not on a tropical vacation! 🙂

    Nice toes by the way. How can you go with unpainted toes with open toe shoes every day. It’s my one indulgence although I do them myself!

      Since a lot of people moving here, or thinking about it read our blogs, it’s probably a very good thing for them to see this is real life, the mundane and all. Or, sometimes we don’t say much because we’re too busy having fun! 😀
      Thanks about the toes. I’ve never painted my toes, never thought about it but I’ve been told that this is our new Sunday activity. So, apparently there will be no more plain toes.
      And now I must go make breakfast, sweep the floors, continue raking the yard (and I won’t admit this is fun for me), and clean the fridge!

        LOL! I had plans to do some mundane tasks today also. Have spent the day in la hamaca resting.

      I have a lot of books. I just need to study consistently. But, that one you recommended looks very interesting, one I should probably add to my collection. Thanks for the recommendation 🙂
