The Last Few Days

The other day on my way home, I drove past a heavily bearded guy with headphones on a bike, yawning like there was no tomorrow.

Another day this week, I wandered around a fully functioning, brand-new, yet completely empty prison. I was most impressed with the tiny little windows in the holding rooms.

Also this week, I sat in an emergency care clinic with a relative who has mono, bilateral ear infections, tonsil infection, and enlarged spleen.

A friend and I made our first attempt at Ethiopian food too. She brought the injera and made the doro wat and honey bread (which is so delicious toasted the next day for breakfast). I made the lentils, collard greens, and salad.

Another friend and I are eating leeks for the next two days, as a kind of post-holiday detox. I was promised I wouldn't be hungry, but I am.

These spices came all the way from Addis Ababa.

Blurry, but delicious. (The food, not the children.)

I like the blurry picture. It's how it goes with kids who don't stop moving. I think the kids look delicious though. I love our new tradition and can't wait for next year with two more kids added to the bunch.

I just shuddered thinking of eating leeks for two days. Love the photo, adorable ones those two.

yum! We started what we hope is our first tradition of Ethiopian food with friends on MG! Next time, I'm going to try making our own.
