I know that lately we haven't posted as much as we did before the start of this year, but it's not due to waning interest. We've been busy. Anna has a new job, I'm totally overwhelmed with my "real" job, and there just aren't enough hours in the day.
That doesn't mean we've been taking any breaks, though. Anna continues to be out and about going into the homes of The Bead Women. I've been doing my administrative duties, as well as sorting, sorting, sorting donated beads and supplies, plus doing other things for the project that seem small but add up to a lot. I continue to be amazed by the sheer variety of beautiful things that have been donated. Unfortunately, they are dwindling quickly because our beaders are prolific.
Anna has been learning Arabic, and I hear she's an excellent student. I continue to not speak Arabic, Somali, Mai Mai, Karen, or Kizigua. My Spanish is pretty good, but it does me no good these days. Oh well...
We had a monumental day today meeting with the Somali women only. I'll post more about that in a day or two. I'm just waiting for Anna's pictures so you can see what it looks like when we're all together sharing our super sister power. Stay tuned!
