I booked my rental car for my next trip and will be setting up to have my Canadian insurance agent provide insurance coverage at half the cost Hertz would charge! Another good piece of information. Our friend Tom, from Toronto, has been visiting, and on Friday the three of us were off to Segretos for dinner. Another great meal! Myrko (the owner) visited with us to show us cell photos of his newborn twins; they arrived November 9th and the couple weren't sure whether they were having twins as her ultrasound couldn't clearly identify two babies. They are identical girls and daddy is over the moon and so proud. They look beautiful! His mother has been visiting from Italy (Milan), and she introduced herself and we tried some Italian...okay we know arriverderci, signora, ciao, and maybe two or three more words! She was delighted to meet all of us, but has to return tomorrow to go back to work. We now understand how Myrko learned to cook so well!
Back at our casa, the shed is now completed with door, fan and light and outside lantern all in working order. Chris is starting to organize his belongings so he can set up his outhouse. A young fella was putting a last coat on the patio today. I'm loving the colour. So little left to do now - we plan to add to the plants as time goes by. With the irrigation system in place, we can put in some more plants even in dry season if we wish. Privacy is still a huge issue for me, plus I don't want to view the entire garden all at once, but to create areas/rooms which reveal themselves as you walk about.
All cats are thriving. We have put out the word about our adorable kittens but nothing positive yet. They are so sweet and all are pretty little guys/gals, just shy for now. Weather-wise, we had brisk north winds all yesterday and again today. The Trades are changing direction so within a few weeks, dry season will officially be here. The humidity is rising as are the daily temperatures...no avoiding the change.
