Monday, Monday

Monday mornings here in Liberia are always the same--you eventually learn that you're not going to get out of the house early and there's no need to make plans on Monday. Monday's just never go your way.

On that note, today's been a weird day. There's been alot of off and on rain, which complicates things. I've felt weird today. Other people have been weird today. I've had alot of mixed feelings today. Just a strange rainy Monday.

But, I was reminded today why I love Liberia. I played frisbee in the pouring down rain for about 2 hours with a few kids in Cotton Tree today. It was one of those times when you could care less about how soaking wet you are; you are just having fun with a few kids who don't really know how to throw a frisbee. After a few lessons..."you pu yoh finga here, an you do like dis and den you chunk ee" (or something like that)...they were having a ball.

I think all Monday mornings should include frisbee with a few kiddos in the rain.

Are you ever right!

I try to get up for a little exercise..RAIN (and usually by now the wet season is tapering down in Liberia).

Go in to the galley/kitchen to start work...loads of organizational emails to read and dispatch...

Try to write a menu, writers block, or some food form of it...

Start finding out everything that has or has not been done over the weekend...

Mondays 'tax me'...I often just want to start work on Tuesdays.
