Our neighbors have been residence this last week. They have had visitors from Lima, Germany and from South Africa. It has been an interesting mix. School begins on the first of March, so they will all head home in another week or so. Georg and Natalie’s pre-teen son found and caught a coral snake and took it home as a pet. When asked if he knew of the danger, he said he was careful when he caught it. Natalie told Doug the snake wouldn’t be there when Maties returned from the beach!
We have contracted with our Peruvian electrician to make a converter box which we need to make the solar panels function. He will have it made in Chiclayo, and then install it on Thursday. Hopefully. After our last attempt to have it up and running, we are crossing our fingers and hoping for the best.
I have finished close to three-quarters of the blue moon quilting. Hopefully I will have it finished in another week or so. We are having company in the next two weeks, so that may or may not happen…we’ll see. I am also a yard short of finishing the hammock on the loom. I am certain that when it comes off the loom, there will be some fixes needing to be made. Hopefully we will have another hammock in the next two weeks.
I’ve made plans to visit the US in May. I will travel to Denver to celebrate birthdays with my sisters. Martha and I have birthdays at the end of April and my sister Do has a birthday in May. Then I will travel on to Chicago to celebrate my daughter’s graduation from her masters program in art therapy. My son, Blaine, will be in Alaska working with his father at the cannery in Cordova, so I won’t be traveling to Oregon. I will not only miss him, but many friends in Oregon on this trip.
