Honiara Woman's Daybook
For Today...Monday, November 28
Outside my window...the valley behind SITAG slopes down steeply to my left and some of our neighbors are burning trash
I am thinking...about how to encourage our Lavukal friends to come by the house when we are in Honiara. I'll never get these stories completed and recorded if they won't come visit us!
I am thankful...for Naomi's camera since ours is having some battery issues
From the learning rooms...Prince Henry the Navigator, Queen Isabella & King Ferdinand of Spain; covalent compounds & valencies; Sarah - learning about propaganda & advertising, using X to decipher algebraic equations; Benjamin - writing a concrete poem using figurative language, math review, ; Olivia - attribute placement, comparing fractions; Katherine - gingerbread fun
Pondering these words..."The themes of this season impress upon the faithful follower of Christ the need to remain attentive, the expectancy of living in hope, the quest for peace in broken lives and a fragmented world, and the joy and wonder of God's love incarnate in Jesus Christ." Paul Wesley Chilcote
In the kitchen...Danish Pecan Snails for breakfast (oh, my, they were yummy!), refrito spread with roti for lunch, and tuna braid tonight for supper
|Danish pecan snails from "The Great Scandanavian Baking Book"|
I am creating...school schedules for our trip to Marulaon January through April, got to leave enough time to totally pack up the house before furlough
I am going...to tackle the revisions on the Lavukaleve creation story
I am reading..."The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency" by Alexander McCall Smith, it makes me want to read the rest of the series!
I am hoping...to clear out my e-mail inbox, soon
I am looking forward to...a SITAG Christmas cookie exchange
I am hearing...Sarah and Benjamin chatting while she cuts the pineapple and he sets the table for supper, the shower running as Katherine gets clean, the fan blowing on my while I type
Around the house...Christmas decorations are up, tuna braid is in the oven, clean clothes are dumped on my bed waiting to be put away
One of my favorite things...precious time with my amazing husband, what a gift he is!
A few plans for the rest of the week...company a couple of nights, shopping for the SITAG employees Christmas party with a colleague, and enjoying the party on Saturday, it all sounds deceptively simple and easy
Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you...Olivia has learned to crochet these simple bracelets with buttons. She just made one for me in turquoise, and I love it!
