Today was a good day.

Today there were no big storms, and in addition to surviving my morning classes, I had a fairly productive afternoon. I took two of the short term girls into Ikelenge as I was running low on some staples, and I managed to find not only sugar and Blue Band (a margarine of sorts), but FLOUR. I had asked around all over the place, but finally in a little hole in the wall behind the main row of shops I was successful. Score! You learn to define successful days a little differently out here--finding even one thing you are shopping for is considered success, finding all of them is amazing. I also enjoyed a nice drive to and from 'town,' a mini nap, some quality time with my cat, and a lovely evening with Jill and Bethany in which we laughed ourselves silly at the book we are reading. Good times!

It's only a month till the end of term--I can't wait!

  1. Glad you had a productive day. Didn't realize it was hard to buy staples there. Think you are planning to visit your folks when the term is over ??? Know that is something to look forward too. Have a good week. Hugs, gw
