"Digging in the Rain"

Instead of "Dancing in the Rain" Ivan's been "digging in the rain". Today he and a friend dug the trench to connect to the new city water line. [Yes, we're in Sta. Rosa] By the time it was getting dark he had almost everything hooked up but was missing a few parts, which he picked up on the way into town this evening.

Our favorite tea shop is closed this week but we found another cafe with free wifi. Not quite the views and it's pretty noisy, but the hot cocoa is the BEST I've had in years! They have ten different cocoa options. My kinda place :)

I've been painting and sewing. There is progress on the lower kitchen cupboards and three of the four curtain panels have been converted to the tab top style to use on the kitchen window. No action on the tile work yet, but we still have two days so I'm hopeful that will get done too. I'm anxious to see the "new" kitchen dressed all in white.

I have more to share but no time to do it. Catching up on e-mails and the bid'ness that goes along with this connected life we live doesn't leave enough time tonight to go into all that's been happening... and WILL be happening. Stay tuned for more news later in the week!

Looking forward to hearing about what's going on there. I can't wait to see pictures of the kitchen too!

Just saw Roz's photo of Michael grilling under an umbrella on Labor Day. I don't suppose Ivan worries about covering his hair ;) At least it is probably not cold rain.
Glad you are getting things done in the decorating realms--your gift!
I suppose the news has something to do with T&K? Mother told me of a change...hmmmmm...

Running water! Wow. Things have really advanced in La Rinconada. How I wish I could be there to help Ivan with the hookup. And, of course, to enjoy that wonderful place...!
