Community Pancake Breakfast

We drove over the Joshua Tree last Friday night - our third night in our cabin - so that we could get up early and go to the Copper Mountain Mesa Community Center pancake breakfast. It was a lot of fun and we met a lot of new people and got to know others better.

The work on the interior of our cabin is mostly complete. 400 square feet with 5 windows, 2 doors and pristine antique white walls. Boring, yes, but considering the shape it was in before, this is beautiful. It's a blank palette.

Next week they'll seal the concrete floor and install the overhead light and then we can move in, instead of schlepping our things back and forth each week. Even with the schlepping it's a vast improvement over the hotels we'd been staying in.

Ken discovered that if you stand between and back from these two windows you can see two mountains - San Gorgonio out the left window and San Jacinto out the right. At night, from anywhere in the cabin, you can see the stars.

The first thing I wanted in this cabin was a second door and I asked for it across from the original door, making the cabin itself a breezeway between the front and back porches. With both doors open the breeze whips through the cabin and seeing through it is a delight for me, though my friends into feng shui have offered me stern yet vague warnings.

I found this explanation online,
Also Chi moves too fast where you can see through the house from the front door to the back door. Fast moving Chi from the front to the back of the house is often associated with losing wealth (money coming in but going straight out again).
Maybe there's something to feng shui, but once all the construction is done I expect the money will slow down.
