Wednesday January 25, 2017
Today I broke another milestone in my recovery. I was up at 4am walking the dogs and I actually walked the long route that I normally did with them. At that time of the morning the dogs are calm without the distractions of other dogs and people.
I had another wonderful Spanish lesson at the Instituto Cuenca. Teo is so gentle and understanding, it is such a pleasure to learn from him.
Today I also took a chance to make a couple of home repairs on my own. I was reminded by a hack on Facebook how to mend wall anchors that have loosened... by putting pieces of toothpicks in the oversized hole on the side of the anchors and re-screwing the screws. Oh I am so proud of myself...
Then about 5:30 our power went out, as it did for pockets of our neighbours behind us and across the street. It seems that everyone had a turn at calling Empresa Electrica for help and a crew finally showed up at 7:30 or so to repair the transformer on the corner. I was watching with the Lumix (which I haven't figured out how to make the flash work... Grrr) and just missed the technician causing a sower of sparks when he first went op the ladder. Anyway, 1/2 hour later it was nice to have lights. We take for granted the convenience we have with usually reliable water and power, it sure is a wake-up call to do without.
Hope to sell Toxic tomorrow to an American friend.
I hope you enjoy the photos. That was the day's excitement. Cheers, Al
