Never Ending “firsts”

My coworkers and I arrived in Lundazi February 2, and today was our actual first day of work. It gets a little frustrating trying to understand the differences compared to Canada.

Mr. Carmen is a good boss. Everyday we wake up, we look alive, we lace up. Mr. Carmen is probably the best boss I’ve ever had. Everyday I wake up, I feel dead, and I throw up. Today is everyday and any day, a monday if you want to be specific.  I take no interest […]

“A Passenger” He paused. Lit another smoke and started cleaning the wind shield of his Tuk-Tuk. The odour of dust inside. A worn out seat and a tiny blue bulb pivoted at the centre of hood, made ride a little pot-stove for me. Wiping the shield off in No Corners of a Deserted road. He […]

     Today we continued our quest for the perfect home roasting experience! While all of our past attempts at coffee roasting have been with the use of a cast iron skillet, today we used the Fresh Roast SR500 to try to achieve a more even roast. In attempts past, we noticed that the cast […]

Before you jump into the shoulds and mustdo’s, let’s make sure we have the basics covered, shall we. First, alignment. Supple body, mind, heart. Lightly child, lightly. Everything else will come then, unfolding in its own time. Just so. No need to kick and scream. No need to cry. You can wonder why…though wondering is […]

I just installed a new range hood https://www.amazon.com/Ancona-WPPW430-Wall-Mounted-Classic-Convertible/dp/B01FS7IGFK/ref=mp_s_a_1_6?keywords=white+stove+hood&qid=1550854002&s=gateway&sr=8-6 It seems a little noisy in the kitchen when you turn it on, but bearable. But in the living room it sounds soooooo bassy. Like you’re next door to a theatre or rave. There is a stairwell between kitchen and living room. I put fibreglass insulation around […]
