Because we had no electricity and no Internet at the Quad today, Portia, Erin, and myself had an unwanted "vacation". We read, layed out on the roof, hung out with the Artisans, and were visited by a couple "pests". The overall vibe of the day was frustration. Portia and I both had quite a bit to accomplish, and yet, our hands were tied. Portia made an observation, "If there were a nuclear war right now, we would have no idea. We are on a island today." Now, this can be a good thing sometimes, however, when we had contacts to make, and reports to write, it was pure frustration.
Now, the best part of this day, to me, were the visits from the "pests". This is Denie. He is holding an American Airlines airplane. Aunt Dee and Jami left it for him, but didn't get to give it to him personally because he was always M.I.A. I was lucky enough to hand it over, and now, guess what...we are best buds. I told him it wasn't from me, that it was from Madame Dee and Jami, but it doesn't seem to matter to him. Oh well, they give a gift, I reap the benefits!
This is Ti Ti. He is three years old, and the most knock-kneed child I have ever seen. He is very easily amused, and when he laughs he sounds like Woody the Woodpecker. This is appropriate for him, being that he won't go anywhere without his Woodpecker stuffed animal. Here he is sleeping outside my room on a rug. I usually take catnaps here, but today, Ti Ti filled in for me. He fell asleep on my lap while I was at the Artisans, so I carried him back to the quad and let him rest. Doesn't he look like a little angel? He is.
So we didn't get our work done, oh well. We had a relaxing day with the reason we are all down here to begin with- to spend time with the children.
