I just made breakfast: pancakes with dandelion flowers I picked last night, topped with blackberries picked and “canned” on the land last summer….and a little honey from our mini ecovillage back in California. It was a good Earth Day breakfast, but then I try to live like every day is Earth Day. I am very fortunate to be living in two such beautiful places.
The contractor is here now first delineating how the house is situation and them marking out the lines for the excavation. He had the concrete guy do it last week, the day before we arrived, but he did it wrong, placing it on the site backwards. We “erased” the inaccurate lines yesterday with a week whacker. There will be lots more pictures of the process to follow.
The excavation was suppose to start today, but the layout took longer than expected and he will be here at 8:30 tomorrow morning.
