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.)
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!)
your pictures on this post are especially spectacular . . . hurrah for a new panaderia!
this is great. I love to see such energy and forward motion – and beautiful baked goodies.
So much good going on there … and beautiful photos.
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.
Now why didn't I think of one of those blue things under my east windows!
(Do I sniff a new career?)
Wow, your man is really nice to have around, isn't he? Congratulations on your new bakery.
I can see this as a feature in MCC's Commonplace…. lovely photos and how very special for these kids.
You Can Call Me Jane
Beautiful- all of it.
