Random Musings for Tuesday

The picture to the left is of our front door. See the sign above it? Well I won that from a website called Signs of Obsession . Christina Hoover runs the site and makes these cute signs. I was lucky to win. Now it took me some time to decide what to put on the sign since The Salzman-Gonzalez's would have been wicked long. Then we thought about Casa Salzman but then Tom said hey let's have a sign that says Pura Vida. Well, I liked that so I asked Christina to make the sign that said Pura Vida. For you who might not know this, Pura Vida translated means Pure Life. But Pura Vida is also a slang word from Costa Rica. You would say it like you say Cool, Awesome etc. So it's a homage to my Costa Rican roots as well. And I want to thank Christina for making such a great sign for our little house in the country and for making it so fast as well. We love it!!

On another note, I have veggie pictures!! I know you guys are all so excited about them as well. The garden is going so good. My almost deadish tomatoes plants a few weeks ago got a second wind and are growing. There are still 3 or 4 that are really small still and they look like they might not make it but I have at least 10-12 tomato plants that are big, full and healthy. The squash is doing so well. I got 2 today and I am deciding what to make with it. And yeah that's me in the garden weeding. I do it everyday!

  4. Actually, that's a string of birds we bought in NM when we lived there. I think they are Indian (from India). They are supposed to be good luck. We actually do have a ristra of peppers on the other side of the porch but they are not in the picture.
