The New Beginning

23 Dec

Well, we made it to the other side without a scratch.  I did see this one thing that said, “If the Mayans were so smart in predicting the future, why aren’t they here?”  Oh well,live and learn!!

Things here keep chugging right along as we near the end of the old year 2012.  This will be our third Christmas here in Puerto and will be attending Peter’s Christmas Party, a gathering of a lot of folks that live in and around Playa Negra.

A couple of things have changed here around the house, I helped Marvin put a new roof over our gate.  The other one was too narrow and was getting the wood wet and moldy all the time.  I could not even imagine how much it would cost to replace this wood.

You can now stand next to the gate without getting wet when it rains!!  Yea!!

I built a small arbor for our bougainvillea to grown on and finally flower.  It was planted next to the house as protection from would be folks trying to get into the windows since it is full of stickers that really hurt, but get no sun to flower.
