Some changes to my house

Kitchen changes

Having a team of ladies from NY on site, I have made use of the opportunity to pick their brains about shifting around some things in my house. It's been really hard for me not to have a good friend or two here to help me with ideas with the house!

Anyway, while I was running errands in town today for the team, I picked up an extra chair I had ordered for my living room set as well as a linen chest. (Click on the photo to see that.) Stuff like that is really incredibly cheap here--an amazing blessing!

Since the team brought some sewing machines, I was finally able to make adjustments to my curtains, too, so they're no longer a foot too short! (Yeah!)

It's been a crazy few days with the team here, hence the silence from this side. I'm hoping to catch up on work tomorrow, but can't imagine I'd be able to get much "office time" in since another team is arriving and I have to take them around for 2 days. I have to remind myself at times that hosting teams is a major part of my ministry here! In fact, I have had some very meaningful times with team members to talk with them, pray for them and encourage them.

So, tomorrow morning early I'll be heading for the airport to pick up the new team. It's raining right now, which I'm thankful for in terms of our crops and plants, but please, please pray that it won't rain so much that I'll get stuck in the mud on my way to the airport or coming home...

  1. Adele,
    Your home looks cool. I like it!
    I wonder how does it look from the outside. I looked at the flickr pictures but it was all in the construction stage. I would love to see how it looks now after it has been finished. I read that you wanted the brick finish on the outside. Anyway, it is always good to read your blogs. My site is almost done. I don't know what to do to the homepage. Let me know if you have any suggestions.
    Love you Adele!
