I am not a morning person. Sadly, the market where we get fresh fruits and veggies here at Ukarumpa is only open Monday, Wednesday, and Friday mornings from 6:30am – 8:00am. So, not only do I have to be UP (which I usually am by 7am), but I also need to be smiling, friendly, and somewhat able to converse (much harder for me at that hour) if I am to get fresh produce.

One of the GREAT perks of being married is that Jamie IS a morning person—and doesn’t mind going to the market! Today, though, he had to be out to the airstrip for an early flight, and I was left to make the trip. I did find some great deals—a yummy pineapple for less than $.50! and then, the best reward of all when I got home, my favorite breakfast: a peanut butter banana smoothie!
