well aparently not only do i still have my gecko friend mooching off my hospitality, but the little brown mouse friend is aparently still at home too. i hadnt seen him for about 2 weeks, but tonight he decided to have a little stroll around my living room and kitchen and make his presence known.
this evening is cool and damp - the rain making a nice steady sound against the tin roof. Yes, its actually raining...for tonight anyway. the air is really quite cold and i can tell that Fall is finally setting in. midday can still get quite hot, but mornings and evenings are down to nice chilly temps now. its to the point where its a little too chilly for my bare feet once the sun goes down. so this nice hot cup of Rooibos is keeping me good company at present.
and tonight i made brownies -(Yes Sam, Carol's brownies).
oh, i also made tortellini soup. (i had a tiny bit of tortellini that Elfie had brought from Germany. can't really find tortellini here.) so it was a luxury. mmmmmm!
Maveja and i have started going through the book of Romans together. We are both loving it so much. And pray, because it looks like she has found a sleeping room in the location! She may even be able to move in this week! and this tuesday she'll be going to the US Embassy for her visa interveiw! and we were both blown away by the kindness of the Bowen St. ladies who want to be a part of helping make it possible for Maveja to come meet everyone there and be a part of celebrating with Sam and I on our wedding day. we seriously thank the Lord for you gals and your thoughtfulness!
the wedding planning is moving along. i have a number of the invitations completed but its also reminding me of a number of things i simply can't start doing till i'm back Stateside. Sam is trudging through his final month of classes before the studying for exams begins next month. Pray for him too, because keeping motivated to study and working so hard is becoming seriously taxing lately.
Christaan and i have been meeting for guitar lessons once a week and he is picking it up so fast! soon he'll be playing for our time of worship music on sundays...i can't wait for that day! i'm totally going to love just sitting back and singing praises while someone else plays. and i will definitely have to take pics of him playing so you all can see!
fyi - 117 days!!
