Quote of the day: “Roses are red my love, violets are blue…..” [American Songbook]

I noticed how saturated blue the sky was today – light ultramarine with a touch of cerulean.

Monday meant back to work. Today was a blur of hucking bricks and red dirt into the new school kitchen, as Moses and Freddie lay the floor down. Tea time in the teacher’s lounge never looked so good. By lunchtime I didn’t think I could go on, but felt revived after lunch and happily continued until Edward insisted we stop. The work day was enlivened by the one day old baby calf and her mother who shared the yard with us. Mama cow and Spencer exchanged some heart felt moo’s. David spent most of the day with the school carpenters making beds for the students.

The early evening hours were spent sitting on the porch and chatting with passers by, as well as the two Masai teachers staying at the Mission House, JeJe and Naomi.
