"HONEY, WHAT'S FOR DINNER?"
Sergio got to do some real fishing the other day,and oh boy what a catch. He loves to fish but is usually happy to just get the line in the water. The other day he and 2 neighbors drove down to the coast and fished in a manly river.
Today is Easter Sunday and several people are coming over for a fish dinner. We wrapped the fish in banana leaves with butter, garlic, and herbs. The wrapped again in aluminum foil. Twenty minutes on the grill and they will be delicious.
I recently met a female artist from Canada who resides in Costa Rica half of the year. Her specialty is sculpture but she has recently been excited about textile arts. She has done some great pieces. She is a "free thinker" and just loves to mix fabrics with the unexpected. Last week we got together and tried some fabric dying. We dyed fabric with rusty nails, wires and old horseshoes. We printed with rubber stamps and fabric dyes. We just had a great time. She is helping me get "out of the box". My designs are always to rigid and symmetrical. It is great to have a new friend with similar interest...and the "all English" is great too!
Happy Easter to all of you.
