Honiara Woman's Daybook
For Today...Monday, November 14th
Outside my window...calm seas, bright sunshine, a great day for hopping a ship
I am thinking...about Marulaon village and that our stay was WAY too short this time, next time will be three months - whoohoo!
I am thankful...for the little girl on the couch singing like crazy
From the learning rooms...no school this week, it's time to move again!
In the kitchen...crazy days, so cornflakes for breakfast, lunch in town while we shop, and leftovers for supper tonight. I'm having a hard time just cooking for two people (one of them quite small) and look forward to cooking for seven again.
I am creating...plans for Thanksgiving next week. We were supposed to celebrate in Marulaon for the third year in a row, but now we find ourselves with so many more options for adopted family to invite and foods to serve.
I am going...to the Kosko office today to buy tickets for the rest of my family to come home.
I am reading.."Solomon Time" by Will Randall (rated PG-13 for language)
I am hoping...that Naomi is healthy again soon. She can't seem to shake this sinus junk.
I am looking forward to...my family coming home this week! They should leave sometime Wednesday on the Kosko and arrive in Honiara Wednesday night/early Thursday morning.
I am hearing...the water pump out behind the house, the ceiling fan, an occasional ship blowing its horn in the harbor
Around the house...boxes waiting to be unpacked. I'm trying to get as much as possible unpacked so my family doesn't have to do it when they come back.
I am pondering...furlough again, and trying to organize details
One of my favorite things...candles, especially this time of year. Funny, because the louvers are always open and the scents just float out the window, but there's just something about the gentle light of a candle that says home and cozy and nurture to me
A few plans for the rest of the week...this afternoon, a meeting with a Vernacular Media specialist to share some ideas about scripture use, taking Katherine to the hospital in the morning (8:30 our time) to have the surgeon and ENT look at her ears again, picking up my crew at the wharf (hopefully not in the dark) Wednesday, a SITAG Children's Education committee meeting on Friday (always accompanied by coffee)
