the new bakery

I am loving my new panadería. There’s more space. There are benches so the girls can sit down to take notes. There’s not a mouse infestation (yet). There’s lots of air, thanks to a wall of windows. We’re closer to the main kitchens, and we don’t have to hike up a whole mountain (just half of one) to get to our room.

Then last week my husband put it over the top by installing a big blue pila (concrete sink). Running water in the bakery! It doesn't get much more wonderful than that!

(Except the pila leaks—oops—so we splash our way around the kitchen.)

(It’s gonna get fixed, he promises, but right now he’s absorbed in his next bakery project: a large, stainless steel table that he’s making from scratch. That man!)

  3. Now why didn't I think of one of those blue things under my east windows!

    (Do I sniff a new career?)

  4. Jennifer, I think you are doing FANTASTIC things with these girls/young women. I envy your ability to "make do" regardless of the circumstances you've been handed. The girls will remember you and their time with you forever. Are you making a difference in their lives? Absolutely. Jane said it . . . beautiful.
