I tucked a few special things in my luggage to sprinkle around the house, too. I've got just about everything put where I want it, except the kitchen curtains I made which are waiting for their rods. We'll grab those on our next trip down to the city.
Oftentimes I wondered what sort of house we'd end up with once we had signed on to come to Lesotho. I really had no idea what to imagine. This house has such a special place in my heart now and I really enjoy just about everything about it. Sure, the leaky roof is annoying at times, the electricity is spotty (not the house's fault, of course) and occasionally the pipes burst. Nevertheless, the house has far exceeded our expectations for rural African living. It really is home. I plan to have my artist sister sketch a drawing of it so we can take it with us wherever we go.
