This blog also shows you the dining room and living room and Suzanne's room, finally with curtains hung and the windows and everything where it belongs.
I'd say we're pretty well settled in aside from the fact that we still don't have enough amps of electricity to run both air conditioners. Suzanne is still sleeping on the floor in our room. Everybody is tired of that, Suzanne especially.
The three guys on the left in this picture were a huge help. I think the one in the center in the green shirt was beginning to dread seeing us coming towards him...."Hey Chris, you know that big cupboard? Could you help us move it to another place again?" He seriously helped us move some items numerous times.
We are so thankful for good friends who help us when we need it!

A previous occupant had a dog, so she put up this sign "Je monte la garde". Pretty ugly, eh?Suzanne said we should put a picture of Midnight, our cat on it. Here's what that would look like. Beware Midnight the Killer Kat!
Here we are looking down the street. This is absolutely the hottest, driest time of year and look at the flowering bushes and trees! It never ceases to amaze me that God allows them to bloom when it is 110 degrees every day and it hasn't rained for 8 months. They don't bloom when it is cool and rainy, but now. It is His gift of beauty to us in a dry, barren land.
When you come in our gate, this is what you see. There is a big house immediately to the right. The family that normally lives there is on home assignment. The man of the family was one of my 4th grade students. That makes me feel old! There is another family living there right now. They came for a year but have decided to stay another two!! They will have to move house, though, as the other family comes back in July. Straight ahead is our carport. Beyond that is our neighbor's apartment. If you follow that building along to the right you will find our place. It's hidden and is nice and quiet. It is truly an OASIS for us.
