My mum arrived last Wednesday. Kevin and I have been having so much fun with her, I forgot to write my blog post yesterday! Today, we entertained my mum's friends, Michael and Nicole, who are staying just west of San Jose for several weeks, so they thought they'd drive down and visit on their way to Uvita (on the Pacific coast). They were one of our first guests way back in 2013, so it was nice to be able to show them what we've been up to since the last time they were here. We sometimes take all the work we put into the property for granted. It's just another day, another project, but even for my mum who was here last January, there have been quite a few updates. It's rewarding to know the improvements are noticeable.
We have another busy week ahead. Tomorrow, Mum and I will go into San Marcos to do our weekly grocery shopping, then we have to catch some fish for our friend Tony. On Tuesday, Mum and I will be getting up ultra early to drive down to a small town, Tinamastes, between San Isidro de General and Dominical. There, we will be helping Tony at a market. He sells all kinds of fresh vegetables, cold-pressed apple juice and smoked trout. And now he's looking to sell fresh whole fish, and he asked me if I'd be willing to help out. So, Mum and I will display the fish on ice in a cooler and see what happens. It's about a two-hour drive and it will be nice for my mum to see this little market. Then, after we're done there, I'm going to take her to San Gerardo for lunch. Should be a nice day. And on Thursday, I'm taking to visit one of our friends' Japanese garden.
I can't believe how quickly the time is flying by. Enjoy your week... I know I'll be enjoying mine.
