In praise of newness
The bach has a new roof, completed today. Here it is, a light grey colour-steel; coastal grade to resist the salty sea air. The ceiling space is now clean and packed with 'green' batts to insulate. Every corner has been nailed down to keep it pest free in the future.
I know it won't stay pristine forever, but for now I'm enjoying the newness. The bush too, is fresh and revived with the rain that keeps returning. The leaves are turning happy faces up to the sky. The runner beans are waving tendrils in the air, calling out for higher poles to climb on. Clean water is running into the water tank. What a good way to celebrate the end of the working year.
