Teacher, Home Economist, and Electrician

I'm proud of my friend, Tari, who is so talented in many things. We've been friends since high school, having met because we shared the same piano teacher. In college we took education and home economics majors together. She married a friend of my husband's. Therefore, our lives have crossed paths these many years. Tari's professional life is spent working as a journeyman electrician and she travels the construction circuit for the company she works for. For the past few week Sunday's, she's been helping us wire our cabin for electricity (from a generator). Yesterday she installed outlets, switches, and new light fixtures. It will be wonderful to have soft, cozy lighting. Although the lanterns, kerosene lamps, and candlelight are mood-setting, it's not comfortable or convenient to sew or cook with during the night-time hours.
