I might find this particularly funny because my Greek is not the best and I am always faced with a few chuckles when I get my words mixed up. A perfect example is when I spent two weeks asking every stranger everyone where I could find an outhouse? My poor cousin was mortified when I innocently asked at a high end restaurant one evening in her presence.

In an earlier post I commented on how Andrea and I took many pictures of beach near out hotel. There were so many surfers around we always had new skylines to shoot, sunsets to look at differently and shutter speeds to manipulate in order to freshen up our shots.
Here's a fun one.

Here is picture 1 of 30 mark my word.
Andrea took this picture of me attempting to blast through the water in the ATV we rented for the day. I have to admit when she wanted to drive on the way home from our hike I was a little sad. She was a good driver though and it was fun to sit on the back and take in the sights.

For the past few weeks I have been consumed with excitement over the upcoming quilting workshop I've enrolled in. The workroom is the brightest new spot in my life. I'm currently taking an A-line skirt making class there and ramping up for this quilt making class. This quilt will be particularly special because I'm making it for our bed. I've toyed with so many different ideas for the color scheme but it comes back to grey. One day I think grey and fushia and the next I think more grey and suit pin stripes or light soft blues, whites and greys. Needless to say this decision will not be taken lightly. This quilt is a picture they post on their website. Wanna guess how many times I've visited this site?
I think the weather is making me lose a bit of the steam I've been running on lately. It's a bit cold and rainy out today. My computer isn't working either so I'm forced to go between two until it's figured out. I decided to steal a minute and post a picture of the scene in my mind that's taunting me a bit. This is the beach Andrea and I pain stakingly (sp?) photographed every angle of. I wish I could add more photo's to this post but my understanding of blogging from flickr is limited.
Hopefully you take a second to close your eyes and feel the sun on your skin with me. The only thing warm I'm feeling these days are my new boots that increase my internal body temperature by 80 degrees.

Mike thinks I"m scared of dogs because I don't pet every mangey flee infested dog who comes near me. He pets really gross dogs. Of course, I'm scared of those dogs. However, while in Costa Rica I saw this dog more than once and his name was... wait for it....Poopy. I loved Poopy and had no problem petting him. Then we befriended a woman who had these crazy dogs below. I would never pet these dogs - EVER! Mike on the other hand would have no problem. I came home and showed Mike these pictures and proved him wrong in a sing songy voice.
