Blaming Curt

I was going to start out by saying it's all Curt's fault this blog is late getting posted tonight!  He forced me to take a break from it to relax and spend some time with him!  I (picture me with a halo here) didn't want to shirk my responsibilities but he made me do it!  Haha truthfully, why would I want to turn down a nice evening with my honey? The blog will still post a few hours later right?  Well, not if the internet has anything to do with it!  It now looks like nothing is going to upload for me and if it does, it's going to do it very very slowly!  Goes to show me that I shouldn't be falsely blaming my hubby for things - karma and all that!  So it's Tues, I couldn't get anything to go last night but the internet is working now so I will finish this before I get out of this chair!

Usually we post about Curt's adventures with food.  This week, I had a bit of an experience of my own.  We went out to eat at a small restaurant and there were not a lot of options - mostly chicken.  I wasn't really in the mood for chicken again so I ordered the only other thing on the menu.  I had patita con mani ... which ended up being pork feet with potatoes and peanuts.  It didn't taste that bad but it looked like opaque gelatinous blobs in with the potatoes. Note to self - know what you are ordering or be prepared to be surprised.

This picture was taken Sunday of Pres. Tejada from the Lima Sur Mission Presidency, Jose Coche and Curt.  After not being able to find a taxi, a missed bus, another bus ticket purchased, arrangements adjusted in Lima for pick up, and a lost itinerary and ticket, I believe Elder Coche is now heading for the mission training center in Bogata Columbia.  Whew

I was feeling kind of crummy this week.  Curt let me sleep in and went to the feria for our fruits and vegetables.  This is what I found waiting for me when I got up ... Awww how did I get so lucky?!?

This is a weekly scripture study that the Elders/Hermanas teach at the church.

We found a quiet secluded spot during our walking around this week.  It was good to just sit down and relax amongst the foliage.  We had picked a new direction to go and walked about an hour and a half.  We were lucky enough to be able to catch a taxi ride home.

Selfie time!

We found a nice spot to sit and look out over the fields.  Only downside was this tree had thorns that were about 2 inches long that you had to be super careful of!
Cattle being herded down the river.  We hadn't seen that before but they knew where they were going.

An area broadcast had just started.  We were the only ones there at the start of the meeting.  We are finding this is not that unusual but we still think it's kind of interesting. Ronald (a counselor in the branch pres) had been there to set up the projector but had stepped out for a bit.
Accompanying Mirella to the hospital for copies of medical papers she needs.  We're being escorted by a security guard.

In the family history center with Mirella entering information into the computer to get her missionary papers ready to submit.
I finally got a picture of Bad Rock!  Right after we got here, we were quickly walking to the church. There are some nails sticking out of this block that lays on the sidewalk (right next to a hole) and one of the nails caught on my clothes as I went by and I nearly walked completely out of my skirt.  We were passing a man and he saw this happen,  he stopped and scolded the rock for me telling it it was a bad rock!  I appreciated him helping me to laugh instead of cry about it. I think this was about the first thing anyone had said that I understood too!
