The weather is much nicer here in Challuabamba, even when it's only 15 minutes from Cuenca. It is warmer here and my dad loves it --mom complains from time to time but she is at least happy that she'll be able to wear her shorts. I love the fact that downstairs of this house has tile as it allows me to cool off when it gets a bit too warm. Although there may be some disagreements on the temperature, we all agree that having less rain works better for all of us. I actually LOVE it here and refuse to get in the car any more after all the moving around we did for 20 days. So, in this post I'll share a little bit of our new house with you.
This is the most important room in the house where my meals get prepared and where I eat. Mom has 1 pot and 1 pan to cook right now and she does just fine, although dad has to wait for my meal to get ready before mom can start cooking his. I love mom; she has her priorities straight!
I have to show off mom's yoga studio. She loves it and so do I. We are waiting for the ropes so I can lick mom's face when she is hanging upside down.
And then there is my yard and my friends: Negrita and Bandam. Mom says there is still lots to do in the yard, but it looks perfect to me! I'm sure she'll plant a lot of flowers and things that will make my playing space smaller. She already talked to someone about planting a lemon tree ... hmm, I wonder what else she has in mind.
My friends, Negrita and Bandam, are lots of fun. I specially like Bandam because he likes to play with me and also just hang out. Negrita just had six puppies and when we first moved in she didn't want to play much with me. She is also a bit of thief. She is small enough to fit through the slots of the fence so she comes in and out of my yard freely. Little by little has taken every single toy I leave on the yard to her house next door. She does it with food too. Negrita doesn't discriminate, she also stole the hat of the foreman and took it to her pups. She looks like a saint but she is pretty sneaky, yet I still like her a lot. Negrita would have been part of our family, but she is owned by the guard that takes care of the construction and he cares for her a lot. Bandam also belongs to another guard who looks after the building of a spa about a block away.
