Da house ready to go!

Update: It worked!!! Go figure it, it simply worked! So here are the photos (aha, you though you'd get away with it this time, uh? LOL)

And it's finally true! Da House is completely ready - or better, at least inside! Meaning that the front and back verandas will have to wait the coffe harvest time to finish, but everything else is now painted, repainted, fixed, cleaned, perfect!
...
(But unfortunately this Blogger s... simply refuses to allow me adding the new photos I took!! It spares you the pain, but I really wanted you all to take a lok at them, everything looks so sweet! Arght! Groaning.... *sigh* Second thought, read above!)


The kitchen in all its humble glory! Where I'll cook and spend most of my day-time for sure!

The living room with Rodrigo finishing the varnish...

Lucas' room with his famous turquoise walls. It looked pretty cool!

Our room, now just waiting for the furniture to arrive! Explaining: We bought last week our new bedroom furniture, since in our apartment in Rio the wardrobe was built-in, and our bed, an old cheap one that couldn't resist another moving. It's a simple, but brandnew tobacco/marple color set, and I can't wait to get them! Of course, we had to divide the payment in several parcels, but we couldn't pay at once.


The bathroom, it's tiny but comfortable!


And the corridor linking the rooms...


Well, about the well.. That same ridiculo team returned on Sunday (without letting us know in advance...) and already wanted to be back on Tuesday, before trying one more time! What the f...? That's what they call proffessionalism? No way. My "calm" inlaw politely asked them to leave and not coming back, and tomorrow another guy (the one Rodrigo and I wanted since the begining, but was out of town), will come and he said he will find water wherever it is for us. Humm... Better be right! Rodrigo had used his pendulum and the water is there, just waiting for a clever hand to bring it to surface. Cross fingers everybody! It would be so much better than a water reservatory!

Yesterday I fiinished giving the final touches of varnish on the back door ad kitchen's window, and my hands are all stained with it! They use gasoline to remove them, but I can't stand the smell, so I will let them go away by themselves.

Aaahhh... So in one week we'll be finally at home... With silence, peace, good vibes, privacy! I-just-can't-wait! See you then with (luckly) the photos I wanted to share today, and some more!
Lucas playing with bricks and cars...

Bright blessings to everybody!

What wonderful news about your lovely house Nydia! I do so hope that your water supply can be sorted out very soon.

And thank you so much for the lovely package that arrived just in time for my birthday! The magnet is on my fridge right now, the dragon is hanging beside my computer screen, and Lucas's bookmark is keeping the page in my diary so that it opens easily. Huge thanks and hugs for you!

WHOO HOO!!! What a beautiful house, Nydia....I LOVE those arched windows! How wonderful that you will be moving in soon. I too hope that they find a spot where they can bring the water to the surface.

Hooray! What a lovely home already, Nydia! The floor tiles are just gorgeous! The whole house is so pretty. You will sure enjoy that kitchen window!

Isn't furniture expensive? Glad you could get several payments instead of one big one.

Hang on one more week, then PRIVACY and joy!!!

All the hard work is paying off. The doors are spectacular. I just know you are going to find water and a way to get to it. Moving in is going to be so special for all of you because you did all the work. - Margy

Oh my GOSH!!! Your house is sooooo beautiful! I can feel the energy of it! So organic and natural - I just know you're going to be very happy there!
And little Lucas...what a perfect photo...him playing with all the elements of nature, using recycled bottles & bricks...there are no toys out there that compare to that! What a lucky kid! I wish all children could be as precious as him!
