Just another weekend..

A head start for little Claire
That's the smile I use to get evry morning
taking out the coconuts
The coconut pilot guy
Everyday it's raining in Cameroon! I love the rain as much as I love sunshine. Its still rainy season here and they say dry season will start at the end of this month...we'll see. Our Saturday morning started with a cup of freshly brewed coffee sitting at the porch enjoying the cool breeze of Yaounde. Then the guys came to trim and harvest those bunches of coconut that are about to fall anytime the wind strike. They waited for the rain to stop...its gonna be a tough job for him since the tree now is wet and could be slippery but seems like he's an expert and did a good job. He pretty much cut everything which is a big relief to me cause that coconut could fall and could hit anybody head. Not to mention the mess it makes in the pool! For our lunch we headed to the embassy the AERAY is hosting a BBQ...hamburgers and hotdogs at the pool, lots of family came and kids swimming in the pool. We had hamburger and Claire got a was good. We stayed a lil bit meet new faces then time to go home and take a nap hehe..
Its a beautiful day as the U2 song goes on in our ipod and its Sunday. Sun is up and that give me the opportunity to do gardening and Jeff cleans up the pool while Claire is playing with Simon the duty guard. Then Jeff and Claire jumped in the pool for a's too cold for me! We had some fish delivered to the house yesterday so we had fish and chips for lunch and then it's time to just relax for the rest of the day...until football comes on!!
