|As soon as we got home, Nicole had to take care of her shoe that had stepped in something human lol|
When we got there, we realized we had made a grave error.
Nicole forgot to leave a very important document in the hands of our trusted agent-mother for someone in the church. We couldn't imagine going back home so soon - that would have been very counterproductive. We put our noggins together and came to a brilliant conclusion - our other agent...Abner Garcia! Thank the Lord for friends that are there for you in your time of need.
|"Uhh, we need some uhh...help."|
|So I got me some water from the cistern...|
|...and poured several pitchers into the little pipe sticking out from the pump...|
|....and I poured, and poured...and crossed my fingers that we would not have to be drawing buckets of water to take baths for the rest of the week...hahahah...|
|And all of a sudden the clouds parted and the sun shone through! The pump started happily gurgling and spitting water everywhere.|
After this, we decided we'd better get to work on that lemon pie.
It was all supposed to be SO easy....
The next day, I made chicken divine and Nicole got this picture of the chicken boiling. If I remember correctly, her exact words were, "Oooh, look! It's a heart!" (I wonder who she was thinking about right then....)
This is the arsenal provided to us, but I'm disappointed to say that the grass had grown a spine, roots, and had gotten rebellious. We had a fight on our hands and these tools were not cutting it...heh heh.
|Count em! One, two...|
Nicole harvesting the field
|He fooled with it for a little while, but never ended up figuring it out.|
Here's the pile we accumulated with our bare hands.
Yes, we had to resort to scissors. This is the end product. Looks like somethin' got a bad haircut....
The next day, we were back to working the fields and gardens when I heard a noise outside. Nicole went and stuck her head out the door and saw an electrician disconnecting our electricity. She asked him why he would do such a thing and he replied, "Falta de pago." Somebody (Mr. Lemon Pie) forgot to pay the bill!!!! So if you wonder why the rest of these pictures are a little dark...........THAT IS WHY.
|On the bright side, we brushed up on our "end times" skillz...|
|We were in the middle of a scintillating round of Boggle when it started getting dark so we just took it outside onto the evangelism trailer. Aka - the evangelist quarters lol.|
|It was during this game that we heard the tamale man passing by announcing through his crackly speaker "tamale, tamale, tamaleeeeee!!!!" We ran outside to catch him, but realized our ears had deceived us and he was not very close.|
|Nicole sitting in the freshly shorn yard, waiting for the tamale guy|
|Here he be!|
|Have any of you ever had a sweet tamale with cream in it?|
|Wednesday night we went to Bible study. We were looking forward to seeing civilization and Elissa.|
|He was about as big as my hand. According to Wikipedia, this moth flying into your house means you're either going to die, or win the lottery (depending on if you live in Texas or Mexico lol).|
The last night, we went down the street and picked up some tacos for dinner and brought them back to the house to eat.
|Praying for the food..."Lord, don't let us get sick..."|
|After eating dinner, we gathered ourselves in the living room for many rousing rounds of Boggle! (We were addicted to Boggle over the summer).|
