Today we began sifting through the ashes of our house, trying to find various precious and irreplaceable items.
One such item, which many passers-by of the pink house often commented on, was the pig weather vein. He wasn’t on the roof, but we found him in the kitchen. He’s a bit worse for wear, but if we rebuild the pink house he’ll adorn it’s roof once again.
We were also fortunate enough to find a few of Laura’s precious earings, a small stone carving, and one of Laura’s grandma’s heirloom pitchers. The ceramic pitcher is blackened, but was unbelievably unbroken under a pile of rubble in the kitchen.
