Saturday = Project day...

... At least at our house! Garry and the boys have been working on getting the shop here at home set up. They've built a tool cupboard and are now organizing their things. Kevin and Kaleb spend a fair amount of time in the shop, so organization is a great blessing!

We enjoyed American Thanksgiving with many new friends this year. Some of the ladies organized a traditional Thanksgiving feast, complete with turkey, cranberry sauce, sweet potatoes, and pumpkin pie! There were nearly 100 people there, many of whom we haven't met. We were surprised at how many missionaries there are in town, and also at the number of foreign business men living here.

In our yard we have a number of fruit trees, among them banana trees. This stalk was cut earlier this week, and although the bananas look green, they're actually ready to eat. (What exactly makes the bright yellow bananas in North America?!) What a blessing to us and also to our helpers who enjoy them with us!

What's your favorite way to eat a banana? We enjoy fruit salads, peanutbutter bananas, and banana bread. The girls also enjoy boiling them, although I'm not sure if they boil the smaller bananas or only the larger ones. Deep fried bananas are a local treat, available in the open markets and at stands beside the road.
