Sweat Equity

Yesterday was a beautiful day with temperatures hitting the 80’s. I worked very hard on getting the study in order. I worked up quite a sweat! Our pest control man,James Carr, came at four in the afternoon and made sure that we were protected against rats. Luah took a surplus desk from the study and it fits beautiful in her room. I cooked dinner for Elena and I. Today is warm and overcast. I worked very hard on the study; even hauling books out of the attic. This is truly what you would call “sweat equity.”


About tatamkuluafrica

I am a man who has lived n 6 of the 7 continents. I first arrived in Africa on April 18, 1981. Africa has been a part of my life since. I spent 8 months living in a Xhosa village in the Eastern Cape Province of South Africa. I was given he nickname Tatamkulu Africa. In Xhosa it means "Grandfather Africa." In April of 1994 I was allowed to vote in the first democratic election in South Africa..I was honored to be part of such a historical moment. It was a beautiful and a magical day.
