Cyclones and Tortillas

Well the title is a lie beacause there is only one cyclone but it sounded better with both the words pluralized. This week was a MUCH better week for my emotional well-being. I can't say that is true for everyone on board because with the looming threat of Fantala, not everyone can rest easy. I do have to say that people are not panicking and it seems that everyone is just going to work, doing what they need to get to get ready. There is a possibility that we may have to sail away from the dock to avoid damaging the ship and the pier. However, that all depends on the storm. I haven't been worried about it at all and I would like to say that it is because I have full trust that God will protect us, but I don't think it is just that. The community has been praying that we would be spared from this and that the surgery schedule would not be interrupted but the reality is that whatever happens, we will manage. The people on this vessel are extremely capable, and intelligent and God is with us; there is no need to worry. A deck officer mentioned an interesting website and it is kind of mesmerizing with all the colours and the swirling arrows. Here is the link if you want to check it out:

The crew galley was closed for a short time because of the possibility of sailing but it is open once again. My recipe of the day? Flour tortillas! They were very easy but I am trying to figure out how to keep them soft because they became kind of brittle and resistant.

I also learned a new word that I really like: apoplectic. Here is the definition. Go use it!
