Banana Nut Bread
Yesterday I successfully made banana nut bread using Mark's (a VSO volunteer living on campus) gas oven. This amazes me because I had to use baking powder instead of baking soda and peanuts instead of walnuts. But everyone liked it!
I had periods of up-and-down yesterday, but felt much better yesterday evening when I got 8 text messages and 1 phone call in a period of 45 minutes. Wow! I don't know why, but it lifted my spirits.
Today I'm supposed to go collect the 3 sets of clothes (3 shirts, 3 skirts) I had ordered from a tailor 2 weeks ago. They were supposed to be ready last Saturday but like most things in Kenya - and is apparently the habit of this particular tailor - they weren't ready. But he called a few minutes ago and said they'd all be ready at 4:00 p.m. today. About time! I'm down to wearing jeans to work at the College. I also want to take a denim skirt in to be taken in and hemmed - I've been losing weight in the 10 weeks I've been here in Kenya. I'm sure it has something to do with the fact that I don't cook very well. :)
