Before heading out for a day of loose ends tidying (I needed to pick up my notary-signed land contract as well as my immigration card) we bought some savory pastries and stopped at the building site.
As far as I could tell, there still was no hose but the cement was being mixed with the buckets of water to the sound of music. Jorge was gone for the day so I thought I would hold off and ask him about that later.
Morning energy is a beautiful thing is this energy was happening in a beautiful place.
Off to a day of errands.
I finally have the contract even though we are still chasing the extra document which states that “in case of the owner’s death his children would honor the contract” – pretty prescient of my lawyer). It felt eery walking into the law office where we had all sat so recently, knowing that Jose Luis is gone, and also seeing his signature and photo on the contract.
Immigration was not quite as fruitful as I was told that it would be another two weeks before I could receive the card. Meanwhile, I cannot leave the country without losing my residency so that feels weird.
Loose ends, loose ends.
Returning to the “house” in the late afternoon, it was fun to see the “castillos” up, and also some blocks for the foundation. Of course, we took the opportunity to write some names in the wet cement. I need to add more of them later. Also, a friend is sending me some heart rocks to put under the house! It is starting to look real!
It is both going so fast and also I still worry that we won’t get done before the rain comes. But of course, I have to find something to worry about 🙂
So we keep going and let’s see what tomorrow brings! As well as where the heck is this hose?
Oh, by bedtime I got a message from Irvin telling me that I needed to make my monthly payments to a new account since Jose Luis’ account is no longer working. My lawyer says that this new account needs to be added to the contract.
