1 Found a phone message, left at about midnight last night, from my dear sister, Deborah aka Daisy in Hawaii, telling me she loves me and that she is loving seeing the joy in my postings about Senegal – a beautiful moment indeed. Thank you!
2 Researching Lakh on the net to help with my Senegal postings, I came across this blog which is just so evocative of all we experienced. You might like to have a look. http://friendsfooddrinks.blogspot.co.uk/2011/01/thieboudienne-lakh-mafe.html
Lakh is a bit like green rice pudding but made with millet and on top there is the most scrumptious creamy mixture, not unlike condensed milk which some readers will know I have a sweet tooth for!
3 We’ve had very sudden and very heavy April showers today (lovely for the garden) and one of the things I like when the weather is going to be stormy is to watch the blue water in our Sailors’ Barometer rising. Today, at the peak of the heavy rain, it overflowed. I took the photo a bit later on when I realised that it would be one of today’s beautiful things!
