Excuse me while I expound on things from the States: Tiko loves his dog toy! My yellow curtains look perfect from the road! Jose will put up new curtain rods and curtains for the living room on Monday! My raw food bars and almond butter are a treasure! I used my food processor to make them! I used my tape from a dispenser! I have a paper calendar and new thrift-store clothes and new blue things for my kitchen, that match and are soft! Small things that may not mean much, but make life wonderful and remind me of being with my children in their homes. Audible sigh.

Word of the Day – cosas – things
Tip of the Day – Guess I am a material girl. It’s nice to have some comforts of home. I keep an ongoing list of 10-12 things that would be nice if/when I return to the States.
