Psalm 75

Got up medium. Washed and dressed. Mom, T, + I all went to the police station to phone Mamabelle, but we couldn't get the operator. We shopped, and I pet a donkey. Came back.* Packed and sorted. Rested, before starting to cook. Cooked. Ate and heard "Dulcimina." A new character, Dulci's cousin "Precious," just come from country. Showered. Put on p.js. Went to bed. Thank you, Mr. O, Thank you.
*Fed Greta and Guerly

We ate:
  • Breakfast: 2 mangoes, 3 busta, 1 banana, 3 tomatoes (cherry)
  • Snack "balls", "butter" biscuits, 1/4 roasted corn
  • Dinner: Spaghetti+ carrot+tomato+sweet pepper+corned beef sauce
Sweet peppers were always referred to as "sweet" because generally, 'peppers' meant those small hot (scotch bonnet) peppers or even smaller and hotter bird peppers.

I'm guessing we made a frybread and rolled the dough into balls. I wonder what the butter was... probably coconut oil.

And we had corned beef! We must have had some money, cuz canned corn beef was sort of a luxury. I'm betting the government had given us some money to help us get out of dodge... I know they bought our plane tickets.

So now I'm caught up to the Story So Far... and should maybe go get in the shower and clean my apartment that hasn't been cleaned in a bit.

I miss my Peanutbutter, but so far he's OK and I'll post about that later.
