Ta da! New blog look. I was poking around yesterday and took a look at the Beta info and thought I would switch over. You can play with the templates and personalize things which is fun, but also a bit time consuming for a person like me who can be indecisive. I lost count of how many different templates I played with before this one. Oiye! (Ukrainian expression for, well, anything that needs an “oiye”)
It’s just starting to rain. We had a drizzle last night, which under most circumstances would be good, but here it barely takes the edge off when it’s hot. The good kind of rain is the kind that drowns the yard, like it’s trying to do right now. That’s when things actually cool off. If you’re lucky it makes the mosquitoes run away, though that doesn’t seem to be the case tonight. Ugh.
I was supposed to have an English class today with four teenage boys from our neighborhood, however, none of them showed up. I did just see one of them when he came to get water and he told me that he didn’t forget, he had to go into St. Marc today but wants to come so we’re going to try again for next week. I’m looking forward to it because it’ll give me a chance to work on my Creole with them. I was also a youth pastor before I came here and there’s just something about working with kids of that age that I really enjoy. I have days here when I feel like I’m not accomplishing anything because I spend a lot of time working at my computer. It’ll be good for me to have time away from that to be working more with people. I think it’ll just be fun too.
Hmm…I think I hear my shower calling me. I still haven’t gotten used to the feeling of mosquito repellent combined with sweat.
