I took coconuts for planting over to one friend’s house and his mother asked if I’d like some tomatoes.  “Sure,” I said,  “some rejects.”  I figured she’d give me a dozen or so.  She gave me ….

a CRATE full!   “Be sure to bring my crate back,” is all she said.


More in this generous spirit – Ashmita came this morning with a container of sweets she’d made.

Yum.  The round balls on the left are called suji laddoo – that is laddoo made with semolina.  They are Austin’s favorites.


Ashmita is here because we have HOMESTAY GUESTS for the first time since covid.  (They came in as crew on a yacht.)  It is SO NICE to have guests.

Akka was showing how to husk a drinking coconut.


Daisy delivered another litter.  Three little kittens.

Don’t say it:  I know.  I’ll take her off to get spayed once the kittens are big enough. (or at least I’ll never publish news of another litter – ha ha).


I had some friends here for tea yesterday.  Had to show the kittens off.  Lanieta said she has been wanting a cat.  Didn’t want to wait for these kittens to get big.  Was really serious about wanting a cat – Buttercup was not too big.

So yesterday, Lanieta took Buttercup.

I drove them home, carried Buttercup into the house.  Had Buttercup sit on my lap, which she’ll do in the evening for hours if I let her.  After about 10 minutes, Buttercup crawled off my lap and started exploring the room.  She didn’t want to get back on my lap, so I figure she liked it there.

Lanieta’s family has only one dog that is well controlled.   So there is a good chance it will all work out well for Buttercup.


Follow up on the changes to Sigatoka town.  There is parking where the tracks were.  Hooray for more parking.

Our truck is the first one.  🙂


Happy week, everybody.
