Not the best way to start the weekend, but we broke off the swabbing and baling to have a hearty breakfast and Chris finished the job - as always. He complains very little these days, being so delighted to have his English football back with SKY TV! Arsenal is playing today, and even I will watch that one.
I seem to have finally recovered from the tainted lunch of two weeks ago, but Chris has had a much harder time of it. I collected some antibiotics and pedialyte from pharmacia Edith yesterday, and keep my fingers crossed that he will finally beat this. While in town, I took a second batch of Christmas cards to our little post office. I had been anticipating this with great relish as I expected a hissy fit or even a cardiac arrest from the usual lady in attendance if I presented more than one envelope! Admittedly, I was being very mean.

The rest of the week was completely forgettable! Other than thinking about a dear friend in Canada who started chemotherapy this week, nothing remarkable happened. I've almost finished all plans for my trip home, and now need to finalize some shopping, organizing, baking (for Chris) and decorating the house a wee bit! I used to do a lot of decorating in Canada, but left most of those precious ornaments in storage for now, so will need a few baubles to make it look like Santa still knows where we are! This means a day trip to Chitre- oh, goody.
We are still awaiting dry season to start (very soon now) so the pool will get painted; we should save all this wasted water for it! Otherwise the weather is pleasant, my little cat friends still visit every evening while Mitzi and Cagney watch, we continue to read eagerly anything we can. Fortunately, Murray and Cathy from Canada (Oyama, BC) brought several books with them for their latest visit. I hope to collect a bunch more from daughter #2 while home, and will recompense her so she will keep saving them for me! I am sewing together the last two sweaters and I can hear them now: "Oh, God - who did Nana knit for this time?" I'm letting them know ahead of time, so they can prepare to show happy faces of delight!
