Getting lost in Costa Rica can be good – sometimes!

Friday night Frances called and wondered if I wanted to go shopping on Saturday. Can’t recall ever turning down an opportunity to go shopping.
Off we went on Saturday….she ordered some absolutely gorgeous hanging lamps from someplace in Santa Ana – I do have the business card. Gorgeous sinks, etc.
Then we decided to have lunch at Applebee’s….too friggin’ expensive….we don’t pay $15+ for lunch! So we went to another place and of course, I have no clue what the name of it is; however, Mark and I had eaten there with Pat and John sometime back.
Then the adventure began! She missed the turn to get on the Autopista and there was no place to turn around – so what’s a gal to do….but keep going. And we did….and we went past quite a few places that where too interesting to pass up! There was a parking place screaming for us to stop!
Yep, we did! I bought a basket similar to what they use to pick the coffee; mine is a little larger because I want to use it for yarn. Yes, I could have bought every basket in the place and they still wouldn’t hold all the yarn I have! But, I’m taking baby steps.
Went to couple more “shops” and I found it! My toucan-tire!
I have been looking for one of these ever since I saw one a year ago! Picture a fern growing in the circle part….it will be so darn cute! And to think, I would still be looking for this if we hadn’t gotten lost! Sometimes getting lost in Costa Rica can be good!!!
On another note, we heard from our residency attorney and she has an appointment to check on our status on Feb. 6th. Keep your fingers crossed for us!
Yep, folks, life just keeps getting better and better!
