We have spent much of our time finding things around the city (no Target or Walmart here... you have to go to five shops to get the five things you need. The first day I looked around the house and made a list of what it needed to feel more liveable. I had a long list and after going to the biggest market for a few hours, I had only found a couple of things. I got discouraged and felt like I had lost of touch of finding what I needed. Then I remembered how long it took me to get house set up the first time I was here and how long it takes to know where you can find everything in the city. The next day we went out with a list knowing what I needed and where I could find it... and I accomplished everything on my list! It felt so nice to feel like i could accomplish something again!
This picture is from my kitchen window... in the perfect time of day. There is about 1 1/2 minutes of perfection: right when the sun sets over the hills the whole kitchen sparkles with an amber haze and I cannot help but feel completely in awe of God's grace that he has given us through creation. And I get to experience part of it through my own kitchen! WOW! At 5:40 these days, you know where you can find me!
