We are currently working on the making off close to 10 websites, which means Jax and I have been mostly staring at our screens for the last couple of days. It is hard work, but we could not be happier about our location and work schedule. In the background we have the beautiful voices of Etta James, Carla Bruni, Carlos Barboda Lima, Adele, Zee Avi, Jo Stafford,Pearl Django, Dan Newton’s Cafe plus many more. All their melodies turn La Casita into a sort of French Cafe setting. The warmth of the masonry heater keeps us comfortable and the constant intake of warm green tea keeps us going. Other than working, we have done just a couple of other interesting things, starting by the bottling of our beer yesterday night, which involved the whole family. Lots of laughing and a wet floor later, we had 42 bottled bottles of a some-what interesting honey ale.
We also had a meeting about the future of the non-profit that the Hacienda runs, Fundación Galo Plaza. A very excellent woman, Ximena Pazmiño, who has worked on multiple community-focused and environmental conservation projects, is stepping in to head the foundation. This is incredible news for me, because I want to work with the local community in some health and environmentally related projects and it will be amazing to be able to work along with her and learn from her experience. I am really looking forward to see and be part of what will happen with the nonprofit once we start defining new projects.
So, not much more than that – life is good, we are in love and gaining some of the stability that we have been long waiting for. We can just feel it – great things are going to happen.
