Live from Costa Rica, it's Wednesday night! It's amazing the things you take for granted. I feel I live my live with gratitude for all the blessings we receive, but I realize I do take the easy connectivity of high-speed Internet for granted sometimes. We live at 7,000 feet in elevation, in a remote, rural location, in a third-world country. We're lucky to have a phone, let alone Internet!
I can't say you've missed much in the last couple of days, however. We been busy with our normal chores. Kevin has been working like a mad man cleaning the ponds, getting them ready for next month when we open. Right now all the ponds, except for the large pond, are empty. It's easier to manage with all the rain. We don't have to worry about opening and shutting the water flow, etc. Martin's been so busy with the building of the new bridge, Kevin's been left on his own to clean the ponds. We've had a few mud slides, too. Nothing to worry about, but Kevin's had to clean up all the dirt and lug it back in the trailer on the back of the ATV. He's put all the dirt in the back of the hen house to level it. The Bettys welcomed all the bugs and bits of grass—they're happy, happy, happy.
While Kevin's been working hard physically, I've been working hard mentally. I've been writing my book, which is coming along nicely and I've been going to my Spanish classes and teaching English.
We're keeping busy.
