Hi friends,

A year ago I gave my garage a needed clean up and well, I'm glad to report I've kept it clean and organized most of the time.

The first part of this year was a busy one finishing all the trim in the living room and then heading outside to work on the backyard floating deck, and as usual the garage got very disorganized. But that final week before heading out on vacation I prettied it up once again and organized all the tools.
-Hey, I'm already missing my working space or working on some of my projects! :(

So, I thought this was a good opportunity to share with you

My Travels: Nobsa, Boyaca

Hi friends,

It's been quiet around here, RLC, these past few days, but I'm actually enjoying my vacation days with no schedules, doing whatever I want to do, and going to lots of places around Bogota, Colombia. :D

The only thing I've noticed is... Time is flying! It's almost two weeks since I arrived. :/  It may be the fact that I'm just having such a good time.

Anyways, today I'm sharing with you one of the highlights of my first week here, when I went with two of my sisters to Nobsa, Boyaca. A little town to the northeast of Bogota.
It takes about three and a half hours to get there from Bogota, but of course we took longer than that.
