Work .. and a little play.

 So please to say that enough money has come in that we could order the first load of coal for the season .  They expect delivery on Monday or Tuesday.  As soon as they get that bagged and into the barn we will give an update and see how much more money we will need to get the next load of coal.. 

While Zac is welding the panels for the playground fence, the boys are busy doing some renovations on the outer kitchen at the main house. 

Starting with some new parging on the outside wall , and cleaning up the padoc along the back.

The out side sink was starting to fall apart and the wood was starting to rot and the doors were falling off... So all that has been removed . They welded a metal frame then poured cement and have put tiles on the counter and back splash.  Soon the sink will go back in and this will be a great spot for washing and preparing the produce from the garden.

Inside they have scraped all the loose plaster off and re cemented the walls where needed .

We had a Kazan oven on the back wall but never used it anymore since we built a bigger one outside with a cover .

The back up water tank will stay .  It is connected to the water in the house and provides the water when there is none in the village .

Tomorrow they will start repainting everything .   It should be nice and fresh for the teams coming in a couple months.  

It's so nice to stop every now and then and admire the beauty of Kyrgyzstan.. and what better way then to head up into the mountains on the horses..
