Sneak Peek (With bonus Beatrix pictures)

I know people have wanted to see house pictures, and believe me, I’ve wanted to be able to show them!  But until now, it has pretty much been the same as it was when we left for Canada (ie, empty).  We ordered a bunch of shelving, tables, a couch, a bed, etc, and it was finally all ready this week.  Mike went to pick it up, and now we are working at organizing the inside.  Its really exciting!

So, there are more pictures to come, but for now:

OUR BED!!!  It was wonderful to not be sardines last night.

We are also working on the outside: doing some beginning landscaping so that the next rainy season we can start our own gardens, and getting a fence done.  The fence will help our house be a little more secure (a little harder for thieves), help keep our dog in (we don’t have one yet, but soon), provide a base for a hedge of flowers and fruit, and help diminish the number of people who just stare into our house when they go past (considered very rude in this culture, but somehow its OK if you are looking into a mzungu’s house).

It also appears that in my attempts to not inundate people with pictures of Beatrix, I have posted too few.  I’ll try to do better at that, starting right now:P1020137

She does this a lot, especially when she wakes up in the morning.  She’s strong = try doing it yourself!
