It's the Weekend

Just wanted to pop in and say have a nice weekend. It's still pretty dreary on this side of the world with rain every single day. These are a few pictures I took on a beach trip, as you can tell it was cloudy. In my next post I will share more pictures. Have a good weekend!!!

Missing the Sun

These pictures were taken a few weekends ago, one of the last days that I actually saw the sun and right before I came down with a really bad cold. Since then, it's been non-stop rain over here. I usually love rainy days, where I get to sit inside and drink lots of hot tea and read a wonderful book. I also love it when it rains and I get to splash around the puddles with my wellies on and look forward to my return home for a toasty bowl of soup. I'm one of those people who thinks rain is romantic. Well over here in Cote d'Ivoire, I hate the rain. It's so hot and humid that I still have to blast my air conditioner all day, everyday. Also, I forgot my wellies back in New York so I've had a permanent supply of wet and soggy flats to deal with. Sorry about the long complaint, I just needed to get that off my chest. It's just that I never realized how much temperature and weather would impact my mood as much as it has. Now I just long for a few minutes of sunshine to help me get through my days.

Getting Over Cold's

It's been forever since I last blogged and the reason was because I have been sick the past two weeks. It's been raining non-stop over here in Ivory Coast and it's also been hot and humid during the many days of ran. So all of that together brought about a bad head cold and made my allergies start acting up. So I have been on antibiotics and bed rest for a some time. I'm finally getting back to normal. I never realized how homesick I would get while I was sick. I guess I really starting missing my roommates who always made me feel better whenever I was sick. They once spent a whole night at the hospital with me when I got really sick. It's good to be back to normal again and blogging. I've really missed it. Also, I finally found a place to take outfit pictures, without getting really funny looks from the locals.

Feeling Overwhelmed

I've really wanted to post something last week, but it ended up being a very full and overwhelming week for me. Work has gotten a bit more demanding and I've just been trying to keep myself from stressing out. It's funny how there are so many things expected of me. It's both amazing and scary at the same time. Anyway, this weekend I just wanted to relax and not think about work, so I took a nice walk around my neighborhood. I never realized how many flowered trees were in the neighborhood. With my little camera on hand, I just started snapping away. Taking time out to just breath was exactly what I needed this weekend. I hope you all had an amazing weekend.
