Marulaon Woman’s Daybook
For today...Wednesday, November 2
Outside my window...Nako and Foamela (two of Ofain's daughters) helping me clean up our yard so it will look nice tonight when Aaron comes back from Losiolen
I am thinking...about my grandfather, who is recovering from knee replacement surgery
From the learning rooms...the Black Death, Ivan III, Mohammed captures Constantinople; Sarah - equations with negative numbers, correlative conjunctions, & aphorisms; Benjamin - speed equations, sentence combining; Olivia - comparing fractions, sentence combining; Katherine - reading & writing numbers 1-10, letter W
I am thankful for...Naomi! It's so much less lonesome with Aaron gone.
From the kitchen...granola for breakfast, milked cooking bananas, milked pumpkin leaves, papaya, motued fish - nice yummy, fresh food for lunch, and to welcome Aaron home, we are opening a Macaroni Grill boxed meal along with lots of greens and fruits to make up for what he has missed during the last few days
I am reading...Ellis Peter's Cadfael series, how fun to find some great books set in the same period of history we are studying
I am hoping...that the doctor in Honiara can get the beads out of Katherine's ears next week
I am creating...not really creating, but compiling Bible stories in Lavukaleve
I am hearing...the inverter humming as a couple of our neighbor's cell phones charge on this sunny day
Around the house...lots of nice produce from market this morning, a freshly mopped floor, lemon bars cooling on the cabinet as a welcome home for Aaron
One of my favorite things...fresh, sweet pineapple
A few plans for the rest of the week...working on Friday with the ladies to complete another step of the Bible stories
Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you...no pics right now. Our radio/e-mail isn't sending and receiving very well. Next week in Honiara, I'll go back and catch up on posting pictures.
