Puerto Rico San Juan

On September 14, 2013 I received my call to serve as a Mission Nurse Specialist in the Puerto Rico San Juan Mission for a period of 18 months. I am always up for a new adventure and look forward to sharing my journey with you.

Day to catch up...

So far, today is quiet.  The missionaries have "P" Day today (Preparation Day - write letters, email home, do laundry, shop for groceries, etc) and they usually don't call too much when they have 'free' time.  I had planned to do laundry on Saturday (my usual 'P' day), but ended up with several calls and visits.  Yesterday was a nice quiet Sunday with the usual Church meetings.  Due to my limited Spanish understanding, I find the meeting exhausting as I try to concentrate to understand at least part of the talks and lessons.  For Sunday School and Relief Society, I can usually follow along in my English lesson manuals on my Kindle.  I cooked a turkey breast roast, mashed pot/gravy, corn, cranberry sauce and apple pie (Mrs. Smith's) with rolls and ice cream which I shared with the missionaries assigned to the Mission Office.  Since they aren't actively working in a particular ward, they rarely are invited for home cooking.  The food definitely disappeared!  It is always good to have a reason to cook.  Last week I had invited the Patterson's for meatloaf/baked potatoes and the old standby in our family - Egg and lettuce salad.  I enjoyed those leftovers as well.

Catching up on laundry today....and sharing some photos of my condo (apt)...
