Here is what the water distiller looks like. It sits atop the counter in the far corner of the kitchen, perched between the tile wall and the extra freezer. The second photo shows what the top of the distiller looks like... the key player in the whole "cleaning" part of the distiller. Remember, I only learned how to unscrew the lid on the top of the distiller, and screw it back on. :)
Below are tools used in our garden. On the left you have the traditional broom. It is what everyone uses to sweep the driveway, floors, steps, etc. It's amazing to see people hunched over all day long using these... I can't imagine how painful their backs must be. On the right is what my gardener uses to cut the grass and trim the trees. We don't have a lawnmower - this is as close to one as it gets!
Ahhhhh... my laundry room. It was previously downstairs in my kitchen. I just didn't feel that cooking next to my clothes was a good idea, so we were able to get it moved. This room is situated outside one of the bedrooms in an enclosed space on the roof. While it will definitely be inconvenient during the rainy season, it's a much bigger space, and the only thing I have to contend with now are the lizards... and occasional bee.
Welcome to monsoon season! It poured tonight, and my street flooded. It was dark when I took this, so obviously the picture doesn't do it justice. But this is my driveway leading out to the street, and about a foot of water streaming about. And yes, I was standing in it to take the photo. The last photo is of the girls last weekend at the school swim pool. They had a great time soaking in the sun and swimming about.
