I woke up Monday morning ready to go!
All weekend I had been looking forward to Monday and a week of action. And because Life likes to give us what we need and not always what we want, I received a call around 9 am letting me know that the crew was going to finish up another job today and that they would see me on Tuesday.
I did not like that.
So I reached madly for my Morning Pages and it came out that it would be a good idea for me to go be there by myself and also clean up the trash that had been accumulating over the days.
For the first time, I was alone there on a weekday. With all the progress that had been made I could start to feel as though I was actually a little bit in the house. It was a powerful feeling. I sat there for a good while, talked to the land, and then picked up beer cans and wayward stuff. I filled a whole bag with it, one by one came a softening, a connecting. Something. A Gift.
Later that day I was lucky enough to be able to spend a little time with a gentleman who builds a lot of houses. We walked around and he gave me his suggestions. Another Gift.
Tuesday morning, the crew returned and has been doing some great strides in the last two days. Many walls are up, tubes that will lead to the fosa are being laid down and Jorge and I are talking about windows and more detaily things.
Yesterday afternoon marked the arrival of the tenaco, the big water reservoir that will sit on the roof and bring water down to the house. It holds a little over 1000 liters and will get its water from the underground aljibe, with the help of a pump. I mentioned doing a mural on it but the looks I got told me that it may not be a good idea. Got that.
Last night I decided that I would go to the office of electricity today and see what I can learn. As things move along, I become more aware that we need electricity. I have three leads right now but I feel the need to go straight to the office and see what I can find out. Maybe a miracle?
And guess what? No more trash on the ground!
That was easy ♥️
