Casa Nueva Update #31342

At the place that pays me I've picked more cotton in the past 2 weeks than I picked in about 3 months at the place that paid me in Germany. Along with the super secret shhhh...paperwork that I had to sign upon arriving here, it seems that Uncle LeRoy has added an 11th Commandment. What is the new Commandment, you ask?
Thou Shalt Not Associate With Blogs (read, post, etc.) Using Uncle LeRoy's Computer
Plain and simple.

Oh, did I mention that my laptop, Victor, frequently gives up the ghost? It does. It randomly turns off, then restarts when it feels like it.

I visit CasaNueva twice a day, once during lunch and once with P after work (the house is only 3 minutes from our hotel). It's coming along fine. Last week the light fixtures and flooring (except for the carpet) were installed. Next the inside doors will be installed, the walls painted, the appliances will be installed, and the carpet will be laid. The inside will be complete. The builder at the site told me that they will be finished with the whole house on 30 August.

Below are some pictures from Casa Nueva:

The applianceless/sinkless kitchen:



The living room...see the 2 holes above the fireplace? One is a power outlet, and the other will be the cable connection, which means I am FORCED to buy a plasma tv. Please pay no attention to the Bonjangles cup in the fireplace.


P FINALLY decided what she wants to do with her room. Since her bathroom is the beach (seashells), she's decided to have a surf theme. we were able to find everything at our favorite store, the Red Dot Boutique.

Next we'll hunt for a kitchen table (I didn't bring ours from Germany).

It's time that I get a little rest so I'll have enough energy can pick an adequate amount of cotton tomorrow at the place that pays me.
