2 more days until the 'big move' to 'the big city'. The boys will do one more day of home schooling then it's packing and wrapping up loose ends around here. The movers will be here at 3:00 a.m. on Wednesday. I'm hanging my laundry in the sun (although it's not too sunny now) for the last time. Once in the condo it's back to using a dryer. The guys are responsible for eating all the food in the fridge so we don't have to pack much in our little styrofoam cooler. If it doesn't rain, Doug and I will have 2 more walks around the lake (as you know, one of my favorite things to do). There are quite a number of little stalls at the lake selling chicken blood chunks on a stick, chicken intestines on a stick, and chicken feet. I finally asked a Filipino, "Where's the rest of the chicken? What if I just want a BBQ chicken leg?" He said that this lake is known for its 'delicacies' (yes, those mentioned above on the stick!).
I have tried the chicken foot (not much meat) but, that's as brave as I have gotten!

Nights here now are cool!! Awesome change!! Our windows are always open so we hear throughout the evening groups of children singing Christmas carols. We are hoping to find a Christmas tree once we get settled in the condo.
