Scattered

Topics are swirling through my head but none that I know how to write about well. Here’s a post as scattered as my thoughts. :) For your daily dose of random...

I don’t think I’ve told you, we installed two pools in our backyard. The Littles are delighted about this addition. I am thinking about making them underground, you know, because black totes add to our rustic charm. ;)

Passion fruits are coming on and I can’t wait until they grow up over our fence as a cover, the pre-fruit flowers are exquisite.

In our nearest big city market, I was buying fruit and had to snap a shot of the man, with no gear, high up on a pole (mid picture) fixing the electric lines with bare hands.

The Littles want a baby in the family. The father of little Hadassah, made their day by letting them walk this little sweetie all over HQ.

The Littles helped grind our coffee after they roasted it at a friend’s house in a nearby town.

We spent the night in our teammates one room house and the girls got their hair done. It is obviously not a favorite activity.

The moments like these are sweet and refeshing. An unexpected opportunity to share together.

Enjoying the watercolors and coloring pages you sent!

Our internet is intermittently much improved. The Littles skyped with their nana until we ran out of birr on our internet stick. We have to stack books on top of the printer to get a signal. We don’t care and have even been known to hold our computers, walking around the house, trying to get a signal.

Look at this sweet, little sassafras, leading a huge team through the grain.

Her dad worked alongside, throwing up the wheat.

Seriously, how sweet is she?

Meet the resident goat, his name translates, “Good Person”. I’ve sincerely tried talking the girls out of befriending it as it’s heading for butcher, it’s just grazing here until Ethiopian Easter. But they lead it around like a dog and take it food. This can only end badly. They are already nearly vegetarian.

Have a great weekend!
