There’s no doubt, November has been a rainy month. Over 40 inches fell, making it the wettest month this year (about 200″ total). There have only been two days this month without any rain! When Hurricane Otto was heading our way last week, we all were expecting a deluge. To our surprise, total rainfall in our area was only a few tenths of an inch. Other parts of Costa Rica and Nicaragua were not so lucky. However, after Otto passed and headed out into the Pacific, we have had nothing but rain…16 inches in the past four days. Historically the rains taper off by Thanksgiving and the dry season is in full swing by December.
So, what have we been doing to occupy our time when the rain has been falling?
We went to our friend’s party with a great mariachi band.
and had lots of fun…
We celebrated Thanksgiving with our friends on our hill. Gib, our host, cooked a fabulous turkey on his grill.
We had a jam session with bongos and drums.
Ellen worked on macrame jewelry.
Here are some of her creations. Beautiful!
Of course we watched lots of movies and TV shows.
Eddie did some repairs in the master bathroom.
And we did some napping, too!
I imagine that soon we will be complaining about too much hot sun and wishing it would rain a little (we hope)! Pura vida!
