Fun outings with friends: jazz, a funny opera, sharing lunch, enjoying a fire, ice cream in the forest, and a 3-D movie

Seared Salmon with Avocado, plus my own coloring art work decorating the tablecloth

I've walked past Ocean Basket dozens of times, but with Hannah in town it seemed like as good a time as any to give it a try! We thoroughly enjoyed the Saturday evening Jazz and Wine atmosphere.

We also took advantage of Hannah's visit for some yummy two-for-one Tuesday-special-offer pizza and a game of Scrabble with Jennifer.

Hannah and I also enjoyed a fire on two evenings, out back in my little garden area. We roasted hot dogs and marshmallows... just like kids! We were enthralled with the clear sky both nights and the beautiful stars overhead.

The timing of her visit was perfect for us to attend another lovely Ladies' Night Out (a monthly event put on by our church, Karen Vineyard). Hannah got to see several of her friends again, including Chichi.

Besides Sigiria Forest, I also introduced Hannah to the small Ngong Road Forest in Karen. She thanked me for taking her both places, saying she's glad I also enjoy God's creation in the out-of-doors.

I got to have lunch with Jacob, on his way back to South Sudan; always a treat!

Linet and I visited Masudi at his new job, Kenya Revenue Authority restaurant

Rose hung out with me for several days; we even discovered ice cream in the forest!!

Carol and her children came to my house for lasagne and brownies. Yum!

Doreen and Emma put on a highly entertaining show at the German school! Gloria, Rose, and I thoroughly enjoyed it! I had a permanent smile on my face for the entire show!


Last, but not least, Jennifer and I really enjoyed 'Black Panther', with our requisite 3-D glasses. One of the stars was Kenya's own, Lupita Nyang'o, in the role of Nakia. Added bonus - - we paid only $6 for the ticket and it included a hot dog, popcorn, and a soda! You sure can't beat Kenya's prices!

God has not called you to work in the organization/edifice of the local church. It would have been way too constraining for a person like you with such a huge broad vision of kingdom work. JHC
