I have not been diligent about writing on the blog. I am taking a class from the seminary online so that has been taking up my time along with yoga and schooling Timothy. Kent is working so hard on his writing project (due April 7) that we know he is in the house but he is reading or writing almost from breakfast to bedtime. It will be much better once he turns it in.
Just for fun and to get out of the house we will drive over to Edinburgh to the Costco. Here are a few items that were interesting.
We’ve had a few people over for dinner so we can get to know them better. I’ve also been keeping a friend’s daughter one morning a week. Ellie is 4 and she has been so fun at our house. She brings her Pet Shop and Barbie toys and sets them up to play. She told Kent the barbies were “sun-dating” for sunbathing. Her mom is a doctor and had been working over here in the national health system which has been interesting to hear about. She is in the US now for some work so friends from church are helping with Ellie so her husband can work on his PhD.
Our little dog Lilly has been staying with Michael and Robert. Robert texted me Friday and said she wasn’t doing well. He took her to the vet and then had to take her to the animal hospital. She had a pancreas infection. Thankfully, she is home and doing much better. Michael sent me the following pictures a few weeks ago. One is he and Lilly after she went to the “salon” for her treatment. The next was her “studying” at his desk.
I have really enjoyed yoga which I never had any interest in before. I think I am improving, but I have a long way to go. My friend put this picture on Facebook she took of me. I couldn’t lift my head up the week before so we were so surprised she took the pic. I do feel a lot stronger. I never knew yoga was so hard.
Lastly, (I hope I’m not boring you), a friend gave me a jar of pickled walnuts. She knew Kent and his partner are developing the farm in Chile to grow walnuts, and thought we may be interested. The entire nut including the shell is pickled. I love food so I had to try it. I can’t compare it to anything but it does have a strong pickled taste. Here is a picture.
Have more news so I’ll see you tomorrow….
