Today in pictures!

We are nearing the end of the rainy season and the beginning of SUMMER in Costa Rica.
The days have been sunny and very pleasant up here on the ridge (it has been pretty hot in town)
The mornings sometime start with some fog over the mountains which usually clears by 7 or 8am.  Then sunny and warm all day!

The end of rainy season also means the beginning of the "windy" season. They call them the Xmas winds. So far it hasn't been that bad but if it's anything like last year - hold on to your hat!!

 Coffee is ripe all around us. I expect to see the pickers here any day now

Speaking of hats...I stored these in a plastic bag and put them in the closet in one of our bedrooms. That bedroom will be occupied shortly so I had to move them, but 1st I put them out on the line to air out and get rid of any signs of mold.

Houston I think we have papayas!!! We have the 2 trees that our housekeeper planted out back shortly after we arrived. According to research "Most healthy, established papaya trees (Carica papaya) bear fruit seven to 11 months after planting." Since we are going 1 1/2 years here, so it's pretty possible that these are papayas

Our 2nd tree shows no signs of fruit."Papayas express three different sexual forms: hermaphroditic, female and male. Female and hermaphroditic papayas are capable of bearing fruit, while male plants cannot. The flowers indicate which sex the plant is, although the differences are often subtle."

In Search of Fenty Beauty

Been watching a lot of the reviews on Fenty Beauty by Rihanna. No Sephora in Costa Rica so on our recent trip to Cancun, I went in search of Fenty products. I plan to do my own review shortly.

American Expat Finds Retirement in Costa Rica - Our Life in Costa Rica

Hey y'all it's your girl.

There is a website up called Overseas American, it's a new site catering to Americans looking to move or find work abroad. They contacted me a few months ago for an interview to publish during their "go live" phase in September.

And today I got an email that the interview is up. Check me out and then if you would be so kind as to Comment/Rate the interview/Share it (you can choose one or all) - we would like to get the word out for folks looking to make the move and also so that we can see how many folks have read it, I would really appreciate it.

You can click on the link below the toucan or click here

Muchas Gracias!
