SUMMER ARRIVAL Day-1
It was a calm clear sunny 1660 summer day in Glen Harbor when two shipwreck survivors found their way there and decided to claim the large empty residential lot they saw there near Garden House.It was a great deal bigger than anything they were expecting to be able to have in their old homeland or in the place
they'd briefly called home in their journey to get to North America to settle down in the town they would be calling home for generations and that their neighbors would call their home for generations.The first immigrants to arrive were originally Russian and left there to escape from severe overcrowding and a severe famine caused by crop failures.The people in their old country were starving and even wealthier ones had trouble finding food to eat.Their new hometown was to be a place of hope and give them a brighter future for their kids.
arrived to the large empty lot
with her twelve year old husband Ami
Jankowsky and they both knew they had to work with this empty lot and start turning it into a great home to start their family in and to raise their kids.
They had to look around and see what there was to work with on the lot and find a way to manage themselves and improve their lives until they got the house built and got themselves settled into their new lives.
Ami thought they should make sure they were correctly dressed for the current weather and for the current
season that they were dealing with.They packed things up into their household inventory and got themselves into clothing more appropriate for hot summer weather so they wouldn't overheat in clothing too heavy for a hot summer day.They both looked around at their lot and saw that it was big and had plenty of room for their house when they were ready to build a house and to get it furnished after it was done.Eli's first plan was for them to head over to the library to find books about gardening to read and learn about gardening before doing it.
Eli and Ami both made it to the library and found some gardening skill books to read and began to study all
about gardening because they would need to be able to harvest from the local community gardens to sell the produce to the grocery store at Garden Market near the hospital.
They unfortunately had to spend long hours studying gardening skill to gain their first skill points in it so they could work in the community gardens.It didn't look like they'd be making very much money that first day in Glen Harbor because they had arrived with no skills and needed to learn to garden.Eli decided to work at Garden House and would sell it later.
Ami began to run towards the garden near the covered picnic park out by the hills and it was a long ways
Eli and Ami couldn't remember when they first met because it was likely they'd met as babies and began playing together as toddlers.They also were growing up together as children and older kids who ended up getting married as nine year olds.
Eli Jankowsky was working on the garden and had finished with the fruit trees and it was getting very hot
She was also planning to have them spend the night at home if they could or at Garden Market if it got too late to get home and get themselves to bed.They both knew they wouldn't want to stay up very late at night because it would mean getting a late start on their new day.
Ami Jankowsky finally made it to the garden where he wanted to work and it was already late in the day
Eli had also had a money tree to harvest from and that would help a lot in contributing towards their savings until they saved up at least 10000$ and could finally start building their house.The reason for them saving that much up to start with was because they would want furniture.
Eli and Ami Jankowsky both got themselves to the grocery store and managed to get their produce sold for
They never thought that way in the old country because they'd just be wanting to have something to eat and wouldn't care so much about having a place to live and get indoors when the weather turned cold like it often did when winter hit.
It was already 7:30 when they both had to use the washrooms and ended up needing to find something to
They both took canned soup and decided to eat that for dinner before going to bed.They were both starving and looking for something to eat for dinner that night though it was going to be 9PM by the time they'd eaten and would be too late for them to get home and use their sleeping bags to sleep in that night.
Eli found the bunks and decided to sleep there because it was already 9PM and she was tired out from the
Eli and Ami Jankowsky were spending their first night sleeping at the store lot instead of going home because they were too tired and it had gotten too late.
Eli and Ami did manage to get up fine though their sleep came up a little short because they woke up before
Ami was first to start work after he'd eaten his breakfast while Eli had to walk to Garden House before starting on her day's work in the garden.They were both interested in building as they earned the money.
Ami got to work in the Garden Market garden and was still hoping that his sister might still be alive and well
They both intended to survive and to build better lives for their kids with their farming after they got the house built and were ready to start having children and raising the family.
Eli and Ami both continued to work tirelessly through the day despite the awful heat which had forced them
They kept up the hard work into the afternoon and evening before they had to use washrooms and eat dinner after selling the produce to the store.They were also having to harvest money trees and would make well over 1000$ that day which would get into their house savings fund.
Ami knew that he'd be asleep by 7:30 in the evening while Eli was not too far behind.He gladly cleaned up the mess on his lot since they both owned the lot and it wasn't exactly like the old days except that they were still sleeping outdoors in sleeping bags.
This wasn't much different than what they were dealing with in the old days other than they had no real home and no hope of being able to have a real home of any kind.They were still having to sleep out doors in sleeping bags even though they owned the lot they were sleeping on.
The hours passed by quickly while they were asleep and there was about to be a late night visitor stopping by to investigate their home.
Eli and Ami Jankowsky both got up early in the morning on that third summer morning in Glen Harbor to
Eli and Ami both went to Garden House to get themselves ready for the coming day and to eat breakfast
Eli went right out to the garden behind
She had spent hours working on the garden and Ami was also working on the garden at Garden Market and getting his work done there.They were both working very hard to get the gardening done on their designated workplaces before having to quit for
Ami was almost done when he started to feel a bit ill and thought he might have a touch of the flu.It meant they wouldn't be camping out on their lot though they could still go check on it.
Eli finished her work in the garden and
This was going to remind them of the
Eli and Ami both got up early in the morning and quickly became aware that it was the fourth day of
Ami planned on spending his day studying and learning new skills because he was sick with the flu and couldn't do the gardening like he usually did when he wasn't sick.
Eli was eating breakfast and Ami had
Ami ended up sitting outside to study
They were both hoping to have more money very soon though it might not happen as fast as they'd hoped for if they kept on getting sick.They kept on working on their tasks until very late in the afternoon and they were also looking for the chance to learn new skills after the sink breaking.
Eli and Ami were done with their
He couldn't wait to get back to work and make sure one of them was still earning money and that was why he needed to get a good night's sleep.
