Okay, so last time I left off, we were in the midst of trying to find room for the new, comfortable, and very LARGE sectional couch that our thoughtful landlords (Klever y Eulalia) had delivered to our place recently (refer to the pics from last post), which took up ALL of our living room. The solution to the problem was to remove the bunk bed they also kindly left for us (in the second bedroom that we use as our office) to make room for a few of the sectional pieces.
But we’re past that now, and here is how our place looks since we’ve re-arranged:
Also the dancing in our Olon Park is still going on (see the video posted on “Olon Flash Mob") which happens on Mon/Wed/Fri from 5-7 PM for at least a few more weeks and is SO MUCH FUN and great exercise. For various reasons, I’ve not had a chance to participate in these as much as I desired, but am hoping the town’s enthusiasm for it will endure for a while longer.
Our adopted stray beach dog Daisy (who is now around two and half years old, we think) had her FIRST much needed bath this last week. Actually, Daisy pretty much belongs to everyone in our Jardines de Olon neighborhood and spends most of her time hanging out at Doug and Pam’s house since our temporary long-term move to the new barrio a few blocks north. She loves her Daddy Doug and Mommy Pam.
For a beach dog, she doesn’t like getting wet, so Doug, Pam, Todd and I approached this undertaking with a certain strategy and a great deal of humor. Actually, Daisy handled the experience better than we expected, but she may be giving outdoor hoses a wide berth for a while.
