Well I had no water again until this morning, but it's going good now, thank goodness, was able to take a shower today. Went for a good swim this morning and met Debbie from Moonlight Villas and Monday will go to the school and start volunteering to tutor kids. :)
The money is really tight, it cost a bit more than I thought, which I had a feeling might happen, lol, but I'm not broke, but just give it a few more days, lol. I only posted some of the pics I have taken, but when I get the time and am online in my own place, which I should be able to do on the 1st, it's seven thousand j, so that has to wait, but I do have a tv and my radio and so I'm good. A lot of times I don't even turn the tv on, but play music and write. Nothing to be shared just yet though, lol, mostly stream of consciousness journaling, only a lot of it is pretty personal, let's just say that I am taking this time out for healing and definitely putting it to gooduse and leave it at that. ;)
But have no fear, there is writing coming, and writing that I can share. It is a huge adaptation..not being able to run to the corner wallyworld whenever I need something does take a little getting used to, and it will take a little time at the grocery stores and market to figure out to make sure I get what I will use right away instead of what will sit in the freezer until I figure out a way to use it, like I am doing now with this pork hocks that I got, lol...I did make a mess of black eyed peas and ham hocks, but got tired of that after a few days, so gave the rest to Stephanie and from now on need to stop cooking for more than one person, I know I can do it! :)
My friend Bobo has come over and showed me how to make rice with squash and coconut milk and stuff, and trout. And in a few days, will learn how to make ackee and saltfish. And I'm learning that bread and milk aren't as necessary here as I am used to as well.
I love that I have all the time in the world to be here more than anything else though. That I can take my time and relax and take it easy and not HAVE to do anything, and that I can be good to myself and it's really good to be alone sometimes too.
Sometimes it feels good to just to let the time drift by. I really needed this time.
I know the last week of the month will be rough, but I'll get through it. I will have a roof over my head and I won't starve, so it will all be Irie.
