31 oktober 2021 Jippy boy………18 years and 2 months! He still has all his teeth and he still catches mice. The big boss in charge of the animal kingdom on Ahava.
And the result of the first phase! The sandy path is a file path that used to be the ‘through road’ that connected the villages. Long before the paved road existed. Quite a lot of people still use this sandy path every day.
ctober 18, 2021 Today the second phase of our fencing project is on the agenda. Today it is putting poles in the concrete which have to dry for two days before Mister Chifundo can paint them. Next week we will place the fencing wire. What a job, but the good news is that we will […]
October 22, 2021 Today the cable was laid and the connection made. Unfortunately, a wrong electricity connection was made during the construction of the building, so we currently have no outdoor lighting. We’ll work on that one next week. Meanwhile, the men are cleaning everything up and repairing the concrete! #alwayssomethingtodohereatAhava
And more help which is called: Sharing is caring! I didn’t had too much fun with this machine as my day was too full with ‘must do things’ but Mister Richard enjoyed it for sure! Thanks so much dear Gretchen! Next time it’s me.
October 8, 2021 It’s so terribly hot here and because of this the neighbours have decided to take a bath with each other to cool down #villagepigsaretheworst!
October 9, 2021 This week we made the water gutter for the roof of our soap factory with drainage to the existing water gutter, plastered the wood storage shed and laid a street. So thankful for handy men at Ahava!
October 23, 2021 And meanwhile, our woodshed is also full again. Mister Wilson has never played with Lego but has passed his exam when it comes to ‘building and puzzling’. Just to be clear: all the wood comes from pruning trees in and around Ahava as we don’t cut trees but we grow them!
October 7, 2021 And then suddenly my beautiful blue/purple flowers were gone. According to the experts, it was time to seriously cut them down. Okay……….compost and water and we will see how long it takes before I see beautiful flowers again!
