The end of day shmiggeties have made me weary, but that doesn’t mean that the during day shmiggeties weren’t awesome.
Franz finished building the awnings and the door frame. We installed the door frame at the end of the day today. It’s pretty. Awnings will be hung tomorrow.
Craig oversaw the installation of plaster inside and with the help of Gypson, Vixon, and others it’s really looking great. They’ve nearly finished sculpting in the windows, being sure to keep the wood clean. All the lines look sweet. Sweeet.
I have been working with Dyucken and two others to complete the barrel vaults. Would have finished today if not for lack of sewn bags. I taught them how to say squinches. They talked politics all day with some plaster guys lower down on the dome. Taught me how to say “Mwen ta renlem pale creole” (I wanna speak creole!) That progress feels really good.
Moses finished the roof!!!! (sort of.) It’s been making him insane, but his meticulousness is paying off. It will look awesome and keep people dry and not fall apart - ever. We’re going to haul up the generator tomorrow so that he can cut metal more precisely and nicely with the zip discs on the grinder.
Some guys cleared out a lot of trees and shrubs behind the house. Don’t know what that’s all about, but they didn’t clear-cut, just thinned out. Now I know what voodoo rock you were talking about Callie.
I took off a lot of the plywood that kept the windows in their shapes. The windows let in a lot of light now, and I have a feeling that when it’s painted it will be a bright home. Everyone is getting along, and someone finally put a titty in that baby’s mouth. The crying has been minimal.
Peanut butter is still cute. Cookie monster is barking again, and there is a cow in the back yard who wants something.
