Time is flying this month, and we're throwing together chili days... holy jumpin! Just hope that we get enough interest and enough chili. I am going to throw one more together for Wednesday... just to make sure we have lots.
Then there are pub nights coming up, I'm going to do some cookie sales (yes, little ambulances and paramedics!!). I'm hoping for some support from family and friends. This week I need to get out and see if some businesses will support us by donating services and products for raffles. Time flies.
I'm quite excited about the journey, but I am nervous about getting things done and doing them well. I have been lost in time this week (I blame the head cold that is settling down on me). It'll all go forward... and we will manage to get what we need!
|Working with great translators|
|There's time for a bit of exploration!|
We are also privileged to be nestled in a tiny community called Los Medranos. There are a couple clothing manufacturers, known to pay well, decent hours and treat their employees well. There are a few families there who I have been blessed to meet twice, babies who were toddlers last year and will be pre-schoolers when I return. The girls from the English program getting more comfortable speaking English will be brave enough to speak with us. Makes me wish though that I had more competency in Spanish... I'll see what I can pick up on line here... maybe I can figure out a few sentences?! Ha ha!
|Never shy to work hard, well most of them...|
|Finish teaching then off to Corn Islands to relax!|
So, for anyone wondering... I'm starting to get excited. The -35 windchill this morning is making that much easier too! I can't wait for the sun, warm temperatures, cool evenings and gotta admit the rum and proper coke (real sugar people!!).
So thanks to those who are ready to help out, I hate asking for money but it sure does make this a great opportunity for me but also for the Nicaraguans who come to participate.
|There is always a reward for hard work, right? Warmth, sun, a little bit of rum?|
Thanks again Everyone!
