We decided to keep track of some of the things that amuse us and will share them from time to time.
You know It’s Summertime when…
– You want to do laundry because it is a chance to get wet
– You linger just a little longer than necessary when looking for something in the freezer
– It’s time to defrost the freezer and you are looking forward to it
– You get to share what’s left of your cooltime (icee ) with the cute baby on the combi
-Doing laundry counts as hand exercise
-Clearing all vestiges of grass from yard doubles for a rowing machine
–Gave Gary dessert in a plastic container leftover from an event. His first comment is did they serve all of these in individual plastic containers? Yes they did. Wow- great containers. (Watch for us on a future season of HOARDERS)
– Teresa: What can we use this broken ice cube tray for
Gary: Not sure but maybe something
Teresa: Ok let’s keep it. You never know
(Now this same conversation any time in the past 37 years of marriage before Peace Corps)
Teresa: Name 3 uses for this broken ice cube tray
Gary: Uh, um, not sure, but you never know
Teresa: It’s out of here !
Strange Conversations and Pastimes :
Talking to chickens : Particularly Mama One (who has adopted us )- How many chicks this time ? There were 5 yesterday- Today there are 4- what happened Mama One ?
Talking to Goats : You can stay in the yard as long as you eat the thorny plants and not the fig tree. That’s it- out of here- We told you- leave the fig tree alone.
Our Idea of Adventure
Use a Saturday morning medical appointment as an excuse to take a new combi to two new malls (new to us that is ), find little of interest except this poor car, and end up walking 5k because we are sure that OUR combi should come along any time soon.
We wish you all a very Happy Holiday Season and New Year ! Looking forward to seeing many of you in 2017. Expected date to arrive back in Phoenix is November 10 after a 4-6 week trip mostly in southern Spain and France including 4 days at a cooking school.
Mall Santa Botswana style
