*Two dentist visits
*Lots of shopping
*Kitwe has a new Pick ‘n Pay—so much nicer than Shoprite!
*Lots of visiting the same two bookstores (this is what you get for being both a booklover and a teacher who works at a remote school).
*Lots of hole-in-the-walls with a surprising range of merchandise
*Some visits to Barcello’s complete with lattes—yes, this is part of why I go to town!
*Lots of good Sri Lankan food at our good friend the Fernandos. After a term of kid geared dining hall food, such a treat!
*Lots of fun visiting the Frenandos.
*Lots of texting various people about all sorts of errands from tie rod ends for a land cruiser to books.
*Lots of driving in the meat grinder that is town—no accidents praise the Lord!
*Being interviewed for a sport on ZedMBC—I was on TV today!
Dentist: I got the first half of a root canal, and then after some probing, sticking some scary pins in the offending tooth and x-raying, it was decided that the crown idea wasn’t going to work. So, out it came. The soreness is mostly gone, but I still have to be careful how I chew and use the nasty mouthwash tablets.
Being on TV: I got roped into doing an interview of ‘Today’s Women’ which was both the most hilarious and ridiculous thing in my life. If I had known that I was going to be interviewed for TV that day, I would have worn something a little different, and I would have had MY knitting with me. I ended up working on Beth’s while we pretended that she didn’t know what I was doing. Now my kids are going to come back and be all like, “You were on TV!!!”
In holiday news, today was fruitcake day! They look pretty edible, so I look forward to sharing and enjoying them with my station family.
