Subject: AGUA!

Yes, we have water! We had a blast playing in the hose yesterday after chores!  Carlitos still hates the shower, but loves the water hose.   Timmy asks all the time, "Is this really clean water?".  We arenīt drinking it yet, but using it for everything else.  It is amazing to be able to wash your hands in the sink whenever you want.   Yesterday the pilla got washed and retired.  Mark moved the faucet and we put the cover on it.  Sad day for the Honduran housekeepers we love.  I think they honestly are amazed that we think we can live without the pilla.  We still use the part where you wash your hands and things, it is very handy.  Rolman wants to figure out how to move it to the cows, impossible, will just have to build another one out there.   Farm work has changed dramatically, it no longer takes forever to water all the animals and clean their homes.   Everyone worked to get 2 garden rows ready to plant, and will soon have the entire garden  tilled and planted.  We believe we can garden year round with water.  We will see.  Never hurts to put the seed in the ground.  Right now we already have cabbage, carrots, lettuce, and cilantro.  Will plant green beans, zucchini, more lettuce, cucumbers, and whatever else we can find seed for.   Soon we will have a faucet so that others can come and get clean water. There are several that live around us  that can benefit from a closer faucet than the Mennonites.   Wow, Water!  I really am still in shock! Paula
