The family has gifted me some "alone" time! I'm off on a solo adventure in Costa Rica for a week. I won't be online much. I managed to get here without any cords to my gadgets. No power cord to recharge the laptop. iPod, tablet. So with the last of... Continue reading

Baby sloth has been in my life for almost a year now. It's time he had a name. Honestly, it's never taken me this long to name a critter that's come to visit. Baby was different. It is difficult to put into words what this creature has done to my... Continue reading

Happy hubby, happy wife! The first part of our adventure last week was for me. Bill enjoyed our stay at Selva Armonia but it wasn't "his" cup of tea. Having to take his shoes of before entering out cabina really threw him off. He puts his socks and shoes on... Continue reading

(cacao) After our blissful adventure at Selva Armonia, Bill and I weren't sure where we were headed but knew the next part of the journey involved a drive into San Isidro de General also known as Perez Zeledon. Off we went in search of La Feria. It turned out we... Continue reading

A few weeks ago, I received an invitation to a Cacao Ceremony held at Selva Armonia. It was something I really wanted to attend. Hubby was up for a road trip so reservations were made. Our home is roughly 4 hours from Uvita so it only made sense to stay... Continue reading

Today is the 13th annual National Bird day. To tell the truth, I had no idea. Didn't know about the 12 before it either but that's no surprise since we don't live in the United States. None-the-less it's a great reason to post bird photos today. These are a few... Continue reading

Starting the new year participating in a photo challenge! For the moment I'm skipping number one until I can come up with a photo idea for resolution since I don't make "resolutions". Honestly, I read it wrong and did reflection. Day two- black and white Nobody said it had to... Continue reading

Yikes, it's only the third day of the new year and I feel like I'm already playing catch up! Baby sloth was nowhere to be found on New Year's Eve. I was glad because that meant he was tucked in somewhere out of the wind and cold. AND most likely... Continue reading

It's a beautiful first day of the new year! We're enjoying mimosas in the sunshine... Continue reading

This morning we decided to drive up the mountain to check out the views. The hills were alive with coffee pickers! It's hard to see them in the photo but trust me they are all over this hillside. The view... better on a clear day but still beautiful. We all... Continue reading

A beautiful summers day at home in Santiago! The day after Christmas was not spent rushing around returning gifts and buying things on sale. Nope! We spent the day enjoying the sun and all the other gifts from nature. Hope you enjoy the last few days of 2014. I'm looking... Continue reading

Look who showed up for the holidays! It's mama sloth. At least I think it is. It's hard to know for sure. What I do know is baby was spotted the evening before snuggled in one of his favorite spots. This was his sleeping spot for a couple of days.... Continue reading

This is the second time we've seen this group perform. I can say without a doubt The Unusual Suspects spread joy when they play. We don't have any connection with the band or it's members. Judith Bliss and I became facebook friends after their last show at La Fermata when... Continue reading
