Our Day Off

When we were on vacation, we decided that we maybe were overworking ourselves... Our resolution? Try to leave the hostel property for a day at least once a week. Otherwise if we are here, well, the work just keeps coming. So after working for 10 days, we decided it was essential we keep our resolution and drove off in our car in the morning. It began to snow, but we were determined to keep our resolution! We drove up a beautiful valley nearby, got out of the car, within moments froze and ran back to the car, sat in the heat in the car for a while, and then got worried that we might not make it back to the hostel because of the snow... so we drove back. Hmmm. Not doing so good with this new resolution. We can't drive the car up to the hostel, and have to take the last part of the trip home on the motorcycle up a steep hill (and we can't make it if there's ice!), so even by the time we got back, we had a very icy last leg up the hill on the motorcycle. Now that we were back, what to do? Try to stay warm of course! Keeping yourself and child warm when the inside temp is 20F, definitely keeps you busy. We spent the day by the stove and drank lots of tea trying not to be completely miserable. Adalia came up to me the in the kitchen the other day and said, "Mama, where Ba-wey (Bali) go?" Believe me sweetheart, I'm asking myself the same question!
