the Simple Woman's Daybook

FOR TODAY... Monday, September 8 (my favourite number)

Outside My Window... one honking blow up pool, belonging to the missionaries who live upstairs

I am thinking... that the simple life in PNG is actually quite complex. Is that an oxymoron? Simple in some ways but in other ways, "simple" means it takes a lot more time and effort; everything is from scratch, assuming you can find all the parts/ingredients in the first place

I am thankful for... my work meri and the opportunity to teach her(lanim em)as well as the priviledge to be taught from her (skolim long em)

From the kitchen... brown beans, eggs and toast

I am wearing... a really pretty blue skirt, quite full, a small white tank and a short-sleeved white blouse with tiny blue flowers. It is kind of cool today, by PNG standards. Must only be in the 80's

I am creating... this post, then back to school

I am going... to model for Neal's art class

I am reading... Commodore Perry and the Bible

I am hoping... to be done with liklik pekpek wara

I am hearing... the buzzing of our wee fridge, the pool pump and the occasional Willy Wagtail

Around the house... just me and my man

One of my favorite things... cinnamon buns, fresh out of the oven just in time for malelo long 10 kilok

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week: getting over whatever it was that was going around the dorm, thankful that I made killer pizza anyway

Here is picture thought I am sharing...

I am thinking...2 months down, 22 to go.

I am grateful...for technology that allows me to stay in touch with you even while you are in another hemisphere.

I am creating...a list of places I want to go with you when you come home.

I am baby chew on my arm...wait. That didn't fit with the theme so far...

I love you. Thanks for sharing all this. Have a super day. (17 degrees here today. I'm wearing a sweater and jeans....Windows wide open though. Gotta suck in that breeze.) xoxoxob
