My back is still sore, but it does feel better than it did. It rained most of yesterday and it's cloudy and grey today. I suspect it will rain this afternoon again. It's possible we might actually experience the doom and gloom of October afterall. We'll see. We're heading into San Marcos to fill up on propane and pick up other items. We have to see if our bbq propane tanks can be filled up in San Marcos. We've discovered the valve on the tanks in Canada are different than the valve on the tanks in Costa Rica. We might be forced to buy new tanks and an adapter for our bbq. Whatever happens, I'm sure Kevin will have a solution. Being surrounded by his tools gives him an unbridled energy... there's a spring in his step. I think he looks for problems just so he can use his tools to solve them. It's a guy thing, I think. When we get back from San Marcos, we'll be waiting for the SKY technicians to come and install the satellite dish. They are not a government agency so we're hoping they actually do show up, unlike ICE, whom we're still waiting to install our internet. And maybe, now that we have our toaster oven, I may try an make some bread. Let's all pray that the toaster oven does not explode! I don't think my heart can take it.

My husband, Kevin, and I are from Burlington, Ontario, Canada. We decided to leave the cold winters of the Great White North and the hustle and bustle of our busy lives to reinvent ourselves in the beautiful mountains of Costa Rica. The planning stage started in June 2011 and we embarked on our new adventure on August 23, 2012. Welcome to our journey... enjoy the ride.
