Week 23

I've been down pretty much all week with a bad head cold. And the coughing. Oh.My.Word. the COUGHING! Which continues but not as continuously. I'm pretty sure I pulled a muscle coughing. Ugh. But here are a few photos from my week...

Last Sunday I was still delusional and thought if I just stayed home and rested I'd get better quicker. So like a good girl, I stayed home and rested. Except for a little time at the sewing machine, trying out an idea I had spent half the night thinking about because I couldn't sleep DUE TO ALL THE COUGHING. Overall I'm pleased with the end product, but I'll do a few things differently next time. Just thought these would be a fun item to have on hand for gifts.
Ivan picked three roses and put them in a vase where I could see them from the couch. I enjoyed them for an entire week! They were the biggest roses we've ever had, and I have no idea why these were so ginormous. I took this photo with a playing card so you could have some idea of how large the blooms were...
My constant companions for the past ten days...cough drops, inhaler, tissues, lip balm, glass of water, eye mask...
I haven't shared any photos of the house next door in a while. Construction continues, slowly but surely. They've put in a sidewalk and driveways, and have been laying plaster on the interior, plus putting the roof on. Lots of debris resulting from all the work, so they've been filling this dumpster regularly. (Sorry this photo isn't very good; it was taken after dark.)

Friday we made our monthly trek into Cordoba for some heavy duty shopping. Also had to stop at the telephone company to finalize getting our cell phones put into our names (now that we have our D.N.I.s). In the same plaza was this "Temple of Soccer" which cracked us up. So true for most Argentines! They are PASSIONATE about soccer and with the World Cup starting this week in South Africa, the excitement is palpable.
Finally I have a photo from atop one of the nearby mountains. A realtor took us to see a couple of houses yesterday and then wanted to show us an empty lot. The cost of just the lot was equal to the houses so it's not a viable option for us, but you have to admit, the views from the lot are absolutely stunning!
Lisa @ Blessed is hosting Project 365 this week while Sara's on vacation with her family. Thanks Lisa!
