The rainy season has been very long this year.
And it is expected to last even longer.
We went up to Ibitipoca on Tuesday (in the pouring rain) to settle up on some work that has been sporadically happening on the house. Our great pedreiro has been trucking the cement in on his own because the delivery truck still can't get into the valley.
No much further work on the house has been done, but the swamp lilies are in full bloom. (Their smell is intoxicating.)
And we really must to remember to fix that weed wacker. (The gardener's been on vacation, apparently.)
We discovered we have a new waterfall.
And a new wall!
The wall was not a structural necessity. But it is something I always envisioned there. And while maybe there is something that doesn't love a wall, I certainly do! Even if I never bothered to ask what I was walling in or walling out.
I think it adds a bit of civility to our rambunctious little spot.
We also earned ourselves one very wet,
Very (very) dirty,
Very (very! very!) happy dog.
Now, if you'll excuse me, I must go, as promised and clean the backseat of the car.
