The Story Begins Again and Again—-Tuesday, August 8, 2017

“Home is where our story begins, again and again.”—Christiane Belfaur

We finally got the time, the energy and the money together to start the new building we’ve been wanting since last fall.

Humberto and he crew arrived BRIGHT and early yesterday morning (6:30 to be exact)  Humberto owns the company!

The three guys who stayed here and worked for us were




extremely capable, and very, very good.

Mindy-Lou decided she had to help!

About 11:00 a.m they broke for lunch.

By 5:30 we had the fuel tank pad

And the new floor, of the new building (Terry and I will build—mostly Terry—you do understand) finished, sealed and drying.

They even dated it for us!

Wednesday they will remove the forms and cut the cement…then it is up to Terry and I for the rest of the story!

After the Storms—-Monday, August 8, 2016


After the storms

Night-SkyThe air has that feel of refreshment, joy, excitement; a party, of sorts, before the heat comes roaring back.


The birds call to one another…high and sweet

The day's beginningThe morning air; wild and clean makes one’s soul leap with urgency

My-yardThe plants are rested— they whisper to one another and to us, if we will just listen.


They sing of the earth; sharing it’s boundless joy.
