Happy Friday and happy weekend ahead.
It's been a busy week of errands and trying to find this and that for upcoming birthdays and projects so I'm a bit late with posting.
I captured these sky shots in early morning hours. I'm actually a night owl as that is when I seem to get more energy to do things but I do love to see the sky and feel the cool air in the very early morning hours before the city gets loud and busy.
|My herb garden is overgrown. Too hot to cook. I guess I should freeze some.|
I've slowed down reading but I have a number of books to keep me busy. I'm reading a little out of each one and hope I can finish them all before they are due at the library or unavailable for further renewals. I also picked up these magazines awhile ago. I seldom buy magazines any more but I'm sure I will enjoy them. I especially love looking at nicely decorated spaces and beautiful gardens. It relaxes me.
Last weekend I did a lot of meal preparation and batch cooking for the week. It was lovely since I've been feeling rather tired. It enabled me to focus on my errands and a few other things instead of cooking every day.
In the Kenyan mission field, Pastor Jonah has been kept busy with Livingstone's leg issues. Livingstone has been back to the doctor several times for follow up, had his cast redone numerous times and had multiple x-rays done. His leg is not healing very well but then again it's only been just over a month. I have tried to insist that they stop redoing the cast and expecting Livingstone for such frequent follow-ups but that is how they do business at Kenyan hospitals. In the west that doesn't typically happen since it takes months for leg fractures to heal properly. We'll see how it goes moving forward.
There has been an outbreak of Covid 19 in various parts of Kenya due to mass political gatherings that were held weeks ago. Certain communities have been hit hard including the one where we focus the missions work, the town of Kericho and surrounding villages. It means curfews and restricted travel are again in place in much of the country.
Regular readers of this blog will already know that Livingstone has had Covid but was able to recuperate at home with prescribed medicines. Ernest, the other man that had a broken leg, had been hospitalized for weeks but is now okay.
There is a woman I am concerned about. Her name is Rose. She is 52 years old and several months pregnant. She landed in hospital with Covid like symptoms and ultimately tested positive for Covid. She has been in a small hospital for almost 2 weeks and in need of a great many medicines (I have no information on how these might affect the unborn child).
Another younger woman named Joyce was admitted to hospital with pneumonia like symptoms and later tested positive for Covid.
All these needs at once are stretching my resources since I also try to help certain households with regular food and helps,
If any of you are so inclined to help out please feel free to reach out to me. I can be reached at kerichojoy[at]gmail[dot]com. Pay Pal donations can also be sent there. If you experience any problems kindly let me know. I've heard of two people now over several months who have had problems sending donations. They were ultimately successful after trying several times. I could also send you a payment request through Pay Pal if you send your email and how much you would like to donate. I thank you in advance for considering the needs.
I tired myself out this past week by going out almost every day for hours at a stretch. I'm not used to that at the best of times. So this weekend I hope to catch up to some chores, some reading and some rest.
Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy your week ahead.
I'm linking up with Skywatch Friday.
