It is Thanksgiving Day, though of course not a holiday here in Kenya, but nonetheless we have marked it as a family.
We awoke to Thanksgiving Day on The Shire, having camped out the evening before. The barn is coming along nicely, and the fence as well. In fact another missionary and his boys came along and helped with putting up barbed wire. We are looking forward to the fence being finished so we can focus on planting trees and bushes without worrying too much about them being eating by the neighbor’s cows and/or goats.
The local elders pointed out a flaw in our plan and are insisting we correct it. We have to build a toilet to be used during construction. Ali is getting quotes now to have a pit latrine dug as quickly as possible. Hopefully it will get done speedily and the elders will be appeased.
No turkey for us this year, they are a bit expensive here in Nakuru. Perhaps next Thanksgiving Day we will have grown our own turkey. Instead of fowl we will dine on beef today.
