Sunday morning started very much like Saturday: a smattering of sleep-in cuddles, then a request by the bear for more waffles.
After a tasty breakfast we headed to church.
After church it was time for lunch, so we stopped at a local eatery for some chinese and pizza. Because here, you can get both from the same place. While we were waiting, our (somewhat impatient) little one occupied his time by scratching off our phone and internet vouchers.
On the way home from lunch we stopped at Rosies stand for some bananas. Owen wanted to be the one to hand her the money so I told him he had to ask for the bananas in Swahili. He said, "Ndizi kubwa tano. Kesho!" (bananas big five tomorrow) Such a big boy - and not far off from the proper way of asking for five large bananas for tomorrow.
Then it was time for nap.... to which I also partook. Pretty sure that's not a word but I'm okay with it. I was exhausted for some reason, and slept for a solid two hours.
When O came in and woke me up at 4:30 it was time to get dinner ready. On the menu: Chicken quesadillas.
After boiling Joe (the chicken) for an hour or so, and de-boning all the meat, I started chopping the veggies and shredding the cheese, while the bones simmered away a little bit longer for the stock. Oh. And I would like the world to know how much I hate raw, whole chickens. Whenever we get one Bill has the job of rinsing it and getting rid of the parts we don't need - like the neck. He made the fatal mistake of hanging the neck up and showing me this afternoon. And after I threw up in my mouth a little I gave him a look that said I was punching him in the throat. G.R.O.S.S.
Oh, and also, chicken stock for daaaayyyyysssss....
