It's getting cold here now and we had our first frosty windshield this morning. The dews are very heavy at the moment and the other morning I noticed all of these little dewy hammocks all over the place. Pretty aren't they? The owners are actually large, skinny spiders who stretch themselves out to look like a stick but I couldn't find one to photograph so...
I took a picture of this green caterpillar instead. He(she?) was eating a plant I don't really like anyway so I didn't disturb. Couldn't bear the thought of its squishy body under that thin skin. And can you see the spike?!
On the house front, we've been waiting for a couple of weeks now for the Messers Solar to come and give us power and hot water. Meanwhile plumbing has been almost tidied and the bathroom has been started in earnest.
Oscar, apart from fixing up the outside of the house: is building the walls we need out of old refractory bricks that his dad had lying around: and I am carefully shaping the shower out of sand, chicken wire and cans: Once we are electrified we can test all of the connections and conduits and start covering the ones that work (hopefully all of them) and fixing the ones that don't. THAT means MUD.
