my helper

I finished making the curtains for the master bedroom and also for the servant’s quarters.  It will be nice to have the option of privacy.  The next project will be curtains and blinds for the bungalows. 

Acabo a hacer las cortinas par el dormitorio principal y tambien para el  quarto de servicio.  Estara agradable a tener le opcion de privada.  El proximo proyecto estara cortinas para los bungalows.

Tonight we had a yummy dinner; stuffed calamari.  I stuffed calamari tubes with minced onion, garlic, celery, tomato, and red pepper.  Then I baked them in a tomatoe sauce with slices of queso fresco for 20 minutes.  The calamari came out quite tender and the cheese melted to make a great dish.

Esta noche tenemos una cena muy deliciosa; calamari llena con verduras.  Lleno el calamari con cebolla, ajo, apio, tomatoe y pimiento rojo.  Entonces se hago en salsa tomate con queso fresco para 20 minutos.  El calamari esta muy tierno y el queso se derrete por una comida muy rico.

We are in the process of selling our house in Molalla.  We are signing documents here in Peru and then sending them on to the US.  We will try to send these documents via serpost, Peru’s postal system,  tomorrow.   Sometimes it can take up to three weeks for mail to reach the US.  Hopefully we can expidite it a bit.

Estamos en el proceso a vender una casa en Molalla.  Estamo firmando documentos aca en Peru y entonces enviarlos a los EEUU.   Tratamos a enviar los documentos por serpost, el systema de postal en Peru, manana.  A veces, estara tres semanas antes que el poste llegara en los EEUU.  Espero que podemos enviarlos rapido.

  2. Hi Karen! Your dish with the stuffed calamari sounds yummy! Try using chopped spinach too n’ bake in white wine.
    Good luck with the sale in the US. Using Peru’s mail service, you’re brave!…..can’t be any worse then the US or Canadian snail mail service.
    Miss you guys. Thanks for posting pics n’ keeping me up on what’s happening.
    Big Hugz. Cheers!
