I'm not sure why, but this morning was chillier than usual. Usually by 7 am the sun shines over the trees and it doesn't take long for us to warm up. As soon as we do any kind of physical activity, the circulation is flowing and we feel good. This morning, however, it was overcast for the first few hours. I went to school and I just couldn't shake off the chill in my bones. My throat was starting to feel a little scratchy, too. I stayed the usual two hours, but had a hard time concentrating on my school work. I was looking up words from the fable 'The boy who cried wolf'. I know the story in English so I understood the context, but there were Spanish words I just didn't know, so I looked them up in my handy-dandy dictionary. I have to admit, my heart just wasn't in it today. All I kept thinking was 'my feet are freezing'. I know, who would have thought the word 'freezing' could be used in beautiful Costa Rica (just leave it to me!) I couldn't wait to leave. As soon as I got home, I took a really hot bath and soaked for awhile. My body temperature raised to a comfortable level; I wasn't shivering anymore. I felt much better. I then got dressed and decided to go check on my garden and water the little pots in the greenhouse. By this time, the clouds had dispersed and the sun was beating down on me... I was so hot I had to remove my fleece jacket... go figure! I just couldn't win this morning! Then, at 11:30, I picked the English teacher, Catalina, at the school and drove her to Copey. It's a pleasure to drive her down as it makes me feel useful and she's so nice to talk to, and, yes, it also gives me the opportunity to get online.
