Back in the Neighborhood

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.

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!

    I like that spider, he would make a great pendant on a gold chain! Love your pictures,
    and by the way, kicking back and enjoying life is why we came here isn’t it?

      I’ll bet a good polymer clay artist could make a spider like that. Kicking back? Absolutely! But, after a lifetime of the opposite I’m still working on that.

  3. Oh boy, have fun with those verb tenses. We bought our Nica friend (a teacher) a little laptop and in exchange, he comes to our house to teach us Spanish. I think it’s a great exchange. We’re working on those pesky irregular past tense verbs.That last bug looks like he has golden eyes. Awesome.

    Did you guys take your bikes with you when you moved or did you buy them there? We keep going back and forth on whether to bring ours.

      We bought the bikes here. I/we haven’t had bikes since we were teenagers and we’re really enjoying them. There is a good bike shop here, maybe not as large and complete as a US bike shop but they have a good enough selection of bikes and accessories. We have bought some better accessories in the US on trips back though, mainly rear view mirrors and lights, bike shorts, a gel pad for my seat so you might consider bringing things like that.
