A normal day



By Fred Hegele, Board of Directors
Imara International

Try to imagine a calm, uneventful day at the Imara House. That was today. No significant, unplanned surprises occurred today. School for the moms and the kids all day, tea and devotions at 11:00 a.m., lunch at 1:00 p.m. exactly as the schedule predicted.

Kristine spent much of the day rinsing and hanging the tie-dyed shirts. Sharon and early childhood teacher Lydia did a rainbow project that might just find its way to Bloom in Minnesota. Celia, Carol’s friend did her normal Thursday morning yoga session with the moms.

Gipson and I repaired the broken door latch with the parts purchased yesterday. We also were on fence repair duty for a while, seeking to keep mother Oscar in the compound and safely away from the father of her five puppies. Barbed wire and cedar boughs will at least give Oscar pause before she crosses the road!

Carol and Sandy had a day of business downtown and around town. We all connected at Cape Chestnut for meetings, dinner, and a wonderful evening with Sophy.
