A Hedgehog and Goat

27 Oct

Today was a “lazy” Saturday here on the compound.  The kids had to do a few chores but other than that they were able to run free and play most of the day.  Josh went with Lance to take 3 of the recent guests to Juba for them to head home. It was a pretty uneventful trip even though they were gone all day.  Josh was able to have a Coke and a hamburger while he was away.  He said the Coke was better than any food he could have had. I wonder what he’ll do when he gets his first sip of Dr. Pepper. 🙂 Oh and he did bring me a bite of hamburger and some fries back.

Yesterday was a fun day as I got to help sort clothes and help the girls pick out clothes for their Christmas outfits. It was more like finding what would fit, but it was still fun. While we were doing that Josh came over and told me that there was a hedgehog where he was varnishing wood.  Kim knew how to pick it up so she went and brought it over to where we were.  It was so CUTE! I wanted to keep it as a pet for the next two weeks, but Josh said that was a bad idea.

Also yesterday we had the goat. And I must say it was quite good. Below is a picture.  It was goat stew and the meat was nice and tender and everything was flavored well.  So not a bad experience with the goat.

Tomorrow is church and it has been rumored that we will have chicken on Monday! This was a special treat bought by the doctor and his wife that were just here.  Chicken is a delicacy around here and so I am excited to see how it is served.

That is all for tonight. We got a little more rain today, I guess it really can’t decide if it is rainy season or dry season yet!

Hope you all have a good weekend! Josh says, “Go to church!”

    Are they not able to raise chickens? Seems like the eggs and meat would be very beneficial.

      Yes they can and they have tried. But there are giant lizzards, like up to 4 feet long, and they ended up killing all of the chickens. They are going to try again in the near future.
