This is coming out late; sorry about that. We got to go to church this morning. (I’ll write more on that tomorrow, because I have an amazing story about it…)
We attempted to cook our first meal on the island tonight. Nothing too crazy. We were gonna cook the tuna we got HERE yesterday, plus some of the eggplant, onions, garlic, and peppers, and some yellow rice. We got it all prepped and went to light the stove and realized we were out of propane, which is how your stove/oven works, here. So, we got to cook it in a neighbor’s apartment. Jacelyn did a wonderful job with the fish.
Also, if you know me, you know that I LOVE long, hot showers that make you almost want to pass out. As I’ve mentioned before, we have no hot water, yet, which means we’re still taking only cold showers. So, even with all the intense heat all day long, there is still at least ONE moment every day where it feels like Minnesota, except, instead of wearing a snow suit and mittens that connect with a string in the middle, I’m naked.
Lastly, due to not having an ironing board, I’m getting really, REALLY good at ironing on a couch cushion.
Alright. That’s it for now. The cool story will have to wait until tomorrow. Sleep well, all! On to the next thing…
Do you really iron your t-shirts? This news might change my opinion of you 😉
We rolled everything in order to be able to better cram it into the barrels. Normally, no; when necessary, yes. Look deep into your past….you’ve NEVER ironed a t-shirt? How dare you judge me!!! 🙂
Well, Nic, take a page out of the military book. You must have ironed uniforms and ironing boards are not the best thing to haul around with you! A bath towel on the floor accomplishes the same function and is a bit firmer than the cushion.
I truly appreciate your stories! I can empathize with you on the hot shower thing!
