listy...

Even if I am at my favorite place to connect to the internet (look here to see where I am ;) and even if I don't mind one tiny bit spending as much time here as my husband's schedule will allow, still...
This is only my second opportunity to connect in the last 3 WEEKS!  oh my.  how time does fly!

I have seriously limited time to post so this brief but boring efficient list of bullet points will have to suffice...
  • The Charlotte Mason blog carnival will be posted tomorrow over at Dana's blog, so if you have written a Charlotte Mason related post in the last two weeks, please go submit it now... HERE.
  • As of last week, we are a little more settled in this temporary compact home of ours.  It did take some time as we arrived and had a pretty much full schedule from day one + the apartment was DIRTY from being unoccupied for 6 months in surely one of the dirtiest zones on this continent. (a couple of small windows had been left open for ventilation... yes, those rooms were covered with a sticky black film. mmm. yum.) 
  • This blog now has over 100 followers - YAY! -  at which point sometime back I'd secretly decided I would definitely be having a blog party + giveaway!  This will happen just as soon as I can manage it.  Stay tuned for further details.
  • I'm looking forward to being able to post again regularly real soon, but I am thoroughly enjoying the simplicity of life afforded by no internet/no phone in the house!!  
  • My friend Jeanne is quite literally wading her way through a national disaster... pray for her?
  • Another friend of mine, Jimmie, is hosting a HOTM online homeschool conference ticket giveaway!  Not only that, but she's one of the SPEAKERS this time around!  Aren't we lucky?!
And that is all, as I have a couple other blogs to update as well!  phew!  I'm STILL too busy!!  :)

It seems you have no link to contact you~I was going to send an e-mail. BUT I have gotten old now and don't remember everything, but what I do remember from the 4th grade was learning about a mural in Lima of "The Last Supper" in which everybody at the table was of a different nationality. On the table was roast guinea pig, which I have seen in at least three depictions from Peru. The story went that Lima was not so easy to get into even now unless on foot, so how did the painter from way back when know about the different nationalities?

I've never seen it, so I don't know. I have looked it up and also been told by someone that it's actually the one in Cuzco, but I don't think so. I remember Lima! LOL! Seeing it is on my bucket list~I've held onto that idea all these years, even though I don't know what I'm talking about...

*I think* it's the one in the San Francisco Church and Covenant: "The refectory displays a large painting of the Last Supper by a Flemish Jesuit Priest, painted in 1697. The dish of the last supper is Guinea Pig, as in most of these paintings in Peru." I don't think there are any pictures of it, nor allowed to be taken? What I would give to see a replica even! Or a postcard~LOL!
