The above photos show the new pad for the casita curing over the weekend. Monday, if all goes well, the first blocks will be laid to start the walls.
I went to the swap meet this morning and bought a sink for the bathroom, a big colorful pot and a toaster. Toaster caught fire the first time I used it so I threw it out the door and then when it cooled off into the trash! The toaster cost only $3.00 so no great loss. I also purchased some garden soil for future plantings. The soil here if you want to call it soil is mostly sand with some salt residue. Most plants struggle to live in it except for some nasty things with sharp burrs that make life difficult if your a pet or wearing thin soled foot wear-don’t even think of going bare foot. Most people have dirt brought in and to build up the level of the soil for drainage reasons and have their yards covered either with gravel or with pavers to increase the comfort of all walkers no matter how many feet they have. I already have some cuttings from a neighbor’s yard to start planting with and later will add to that from the plant nursery in town.
