It’s hard to believe we’ve been back for almost two weeks now. We’ve come back to our quiet life so there isn’t much to report since our return. We’ve been resting up, working in the yard, doing daily things, spending time with friends and neighbors, riding the bikes, and generally kicking back and enjoying life.
I have taken a few photos of critters in the neighborhood, some large and some small (bug and spider warning here 😀 ) You never know who is going to have what in their yard so it keeps life interesting. It’s rainy season here so we’ve been getting a lot of afternoon rains, some light and some heavy with a lot of noisy thunder. Mornings and early afternoons are usually sunny though, so we try to get stuff done in the morning and save afternoons for relaxing at home.
Our neighbor Roberts has a new calf. If I understood him correctly (always an IF) he is 2 weeks old and will be at the house for 9 weeks. Then he’ll go to the farm.
This is a very friendly and tame calf. He hangs out near Roberto’s house though he is free to roam as he pleases.
This very nice house had a beautiful horse in the side yard the other day.
Another very nice house had chickens in the front yard. Chickens in the yard are very common, even in some very upscale looking houses.
This tiny caterpillar was on our wall.
This gorgeous big guy was on a banana plant!
These were also on the banana plant not far from the spider. I don’t know if there is any relation.
We see quite a few of these lizards, but this one was just a baby. At first I thought it was an anole, a little garden lizard we were so used to in Florida.
This hawk was making a lot of noise up in the tree.
I was trimming the bushes and found this beautiful little bug.
Check out the gold eyes on this bug. Like most bugs here, it was very mellow and happy to sit on Joel’s fingers.
OK, enough goofing off and playing with photos. Time for Spanish study. I am going to get all those verb tenses straight, not today, but someday!
