i seem to be coming down with a cold, but i sure picked a good day to do it. normally reuben comes home around 3 and i spend the day keeping him busy but today he had a birthday party to go to so i literally laid around in bed all day. i felt lazy but i figured it was better than being sick all weekend and i already feel much better.
some things i've noticed;
*the word "caffeine" isn't really part of the vernacular. everyone drinks tea and coffee at all hours and when i refused a cup at 9 pm because it would keep me up i was met with a quizzical look.
*walking is a bit hazardous. roads are narrow and drivers are reckless. but it's worth it because the scenery is simply gorgeous.
*plastic is seen as suitable fodder for fires. it makes me nervous for my lungs but seems fairly effective. reuben's grandfather is a fan of burning his old disposable razors.
