I just finished up a month of blogging on topics for each letter of the alphabet. The A to Z Challenge was a great way for me to organize things I wanted to share. I now have to ask “What is next?”
I decided to jot down some [Read more…]
April is now over and so is the A to Z Challenge 2014. I have never participated in something like this and I am so glad I did. It was a challenge for sure, but so worth it!
When I heard about this challenge for the first time there was only two days to prepare. Grabbing a pen and notebook I quick wrote a list of the alphabet and gave space to write ideas for each letter. Some letters were much easier. I wanted to have topics with only [Read more…]
Z-is-for-Zanahoria: Who doesn’t like carrot cake, raise your hand? I just made a large batch – maybe we should try some. Of course, I will have the coffee too!
I had never tried my hand at [Read more…]
Y-is-for-Yamaha: Transportation that helps save money. A moto lasts longer running errands on the lempiras that we put in the gas tank. Gas is like gold and we have to make that gold last as long as possible.
A gallon of gas costs about Lps 112. That is [Read more…]
X-is-for-Xiomara: Libre Party for the people of Honduras. Iris Xiomara Castro de Zelaya is a Honduran Politician. Most just use her second name. When someone is talking about politics and mentions Xiomara they all know where the conversation is going.
This past November (2013) was [Read more…]
W-is-for-Watermelon: A fantastic fruit that brings a smile to my face! Thank goodness there are no allergies in our family. I wouldn’t know what to do. We could eat it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner – no problem.
I remember the first time my husband and I picked out a watermelon. It’s as clear as [Read more…]
V-is-for-Vaca: A main dairy & meat producer here in the department of Olancho. Milk cows help make our favorite cheese. Cattle provide for cookouts. Two things my husband loves!
U-is-for-Umbrella: What can your sombrilla do for you? Really your umbrella can be a loyal travel companion. No, it can’t give directions like your smart phone, but it does more than you think and doesn’t talk back. Many leave home without their umbrella, but this companion should be treated like a good friend – kept close! You may ask, “What else can my umbrella do [Read more…]
T-is-for Talgua & Tamalitos: Two things that go hand in hand. If you ever adventure over here to Honduras both this village and these yum yums should be put on the bucket list.
During this past week we were all under siege by Semana Santa! Towns just shut down for the most part (only a few places stay open). Residents and travelers alike enjoy the down time & good eats during Easter Week! I know our family does. [Read more…]
S-is-for-Samsung: My new best friend! What can I say? I love my new phone, actually my mini-computer. I am for sure a Google fan and can’t see that ever changing.
