Photos and Updates and Stuff, Oh My!

Fall
Who’s writing?

Hi!  Tabi here.  Look, there’s a picture of me from when I was in the US.

Wow, so the last time I posted here was in July of 2013, and that was to upload the newsletter of February 2013!  Such a long time!  Well, no worries, I’ve been on a blogging kick, so here’s an update for you!

We’ll go by months again because, apparently, I like to wait forever and do that.

Feel free to click on the photos, because they will take you (I hope) to a photo album.

This church is really active and supportive.  And their musicians are spectacular.  Love them.

Moving and fixing up the house took up pretty much ALL of our time this month.  Phew!  Who knew it was such hard work?

Living in a foreign country sometimes forces you to find ways to cook things without the instant shortcuts you get in the US.  I’m not complaining, though, because the results are made-from-scratch delicious!

Dany is my future partner-in-business.  We’re planning to set up a coffee shop with all kinds of baked goods, including a selection of goods for people with dietary restrictions.  This day, we practiced several recipes that were gluten-free.

Well, that’s not strictly true.  We had a tremor, but not a particularly big one: 5.3.  Shook us up pretty good, though!

Well, that’s about it for the update!  We’ll see you guys later (and I’m hoping it won’t be in another year).
