Life is cozy now in Kovol!
We can power our devices, shut out the wind at night, sleep without mice running about our faces, the list goes on!
We fly out tomorrow so this weekend we’ve been prepping the houses for our absence. We’ve finished up wrapping them…
Put in Windows…
Philip has finally been able to get started on his house as well
We got as far as we had wood for, but whenever his floor comes in there will be little to do before we start tacking it down
I also accidentally got a cockatoo! I thought the guys said he wanted to give me a chicken (he wasn’t speaking loudly), so I jumped at the offer. Then came the cockatoo! It’s cute and all, but it’s also obnoxious!
Owen has been asking for a bird lately, so maybe he’ll take care of it. One can hope.
So as I said, tomorrow (Monday) we fly out. We will have exactly one week off before coming in again for our third (and hopefully last!) milling trip.
The coming trip will include Steve, my dad, Craig Noyes (maybe), and myself. It will be about two weeks long and will end with shuttles from the logging road (also hopefully the last).
Thank you for your prayers over this build trip, I’m quite pleased with the progress! Please be praying over the next week as we will likely be rushing to get the next trip arranged, though we really need to make time to spend with the family.
It’s a chaotic time, and it’s an exciting time. A time of high pressure and stress, and a time of new friendships and new… cockatoos.
