Today the Grand Caribe folks took care of the majority of our remaining punch list items, so we had to hang around the condo waiting for work to be done this morning and after lunch.  Between times, we still managed to walk into town for our usual daily marketing.  We did another long walk to south San Pedro as the protein powder we'd ordered had arrived at GoNature health food store.  In addition to that, we purchased some other good items there (chia seeds, vanilla, walnuts, and local cocoa powder) and had a delightful chat with the young owner, Taz.  We also hit a couple of grocery stores for a few other items.  Here are a couple of photos of some of our recent cuilinary creations:

Today we did laundry for the first time.  We go through a lot of clothing here since we come home from our beach walks sweating profusely from the long walk in the heat and humidity.  Since we've had an old-style washing machine for years, we were fascinated by our new high-efficiency washer and all its smart sensing technology.  Yes, we are easily amused!

Gee whiz, it's smart and quiet too!
Here is another favorite new toy.  We scored this heavy-duty clothes drying rack at the hardware store yesterday. It quickly became apparent that with all the sweaty clothes, bathing suits, and beach towels, we needed something like this.  It wasn't cheap ($100 BZD = $50 US after our 10% local discount), but we will use it every day, so it was money well spent.  It fits right in our huge shower so is a perfect addition to our little household.

We are pinching ourselves every day when we realize that we actually live where we can see a view like this right out our sliding glass doors every single day.  We feel truly lucky and blessed!

Let's see...tomatoes, white onion, cilantro, yellow and green bell pepper, lime juice, Marie Sharp's hot sauce (made in Belize), and salt. This was a chopped salsa; since then he made one in the blender that was also tasty but not quite as pretty.
