The New Bodega
There never seems to be enough room for "stuff", even when you are the furtherest thing from a hoarder that there is. Needing ladders that I can carry and a wheelbarrow pushed us over the limit for storing things in the "tool" bodega. So, I mentioned to Armando V. (gardener) that I'd like to build another bodega near the gate. Soon I had a mason here and the process began. It was supposed to take 5 days; it took 9 days. Our mason wasn't very good at estimating the materials needed, so we had enough cement blocks to border to huge flower beds and still have lots left over. We gave away some gravel and sand, so our neighbors were happy, too. It's still not done; we have to wait to get the doors made. But, at least it's almost ready for the "stuff" that it will house.
