This news did not feel great. They got me to question things such as: did I make a mistake? Followed by "what if this is perfect and I am supposed to be exactly here, right now?"
I have been oscillating between the two, with a little extra weight on the latter.
I believe in Magic. I also believe in moving my feet and so far, we have almost 500 of the 1000 signatures needed to get some attention. Please add yours, your friends' / neighbors'? Clean water is a big big deal in many parts of the world and if we fix it in one place, maybe we learn to fix it in others. Maybe this is what this is partly about.
This weekend was a holiday here, including today, Monday. Possibly, for this reason, very little work got done on Saturday and none today. I hear that some of the crew did show up this morning, removed the forms around the bathroom wall, and then went home for the day, hungover.
So tomorrow we are back at it and I had a very sweet, lovely time "at the house" with Lila in the late afternoon. It sure feels good over there. And the house is starting to feel livable, in my imagination.
Not even a whiff of poop in the air. Maybe the sewer workers were hungover too.
As I walked home to my cabin through the bustling village tonight, a mug of Nutella-hot-chocolate in my hand, I had a big smile and an easy heart.
Tomorrow, I am going to the CFE to get an answer about the electricity!
