No record temperature today as it was only 93. But it was a hot and humid 93. Again there were some scattered showers but nothing any where close to us. We didn’t even hear any thunder today.
Paul and Susan led us in devotion today. They started with the question, “what inspires you?” We each thought about that and then shared our answers. There were some similar answers but all a little different. Thoughts included, doing things with people, beautiful sunrises, nature, grandchildren, morning devotions, seeing God’s hand in daily events, and we think we all agree that NOMADS inspires us. They closed with “volunteers are not unpaid because they are useless, they are unpaid because they are priceless.” Like that.
We then loaded up a couple of doors onto Stel’s and Paul’s trucks and headed back to Baker. Charles and Daryl had already delivered 4 doors, so we now have all six we need to install. Today was primarily a flooring day. Max and Anne completed bathroom one and then build out the cased opening between the shower room and the remainder of the bathroom. While we were doing that Stel and Lisa completed the flooring in bedroom two and bath and closet two. Dave, Mark, Carol, Susan and Paul all worked at some point on cleaning out the living room/dining room area and preparing the floor for the laminate. Paul and Mark also worked on electrical as well as trimming out the windows in bedroom one. The rest of us all worked on the laminate in the main room. We pushed really hard and completed all but one piece of the laminate in the main room. All that remains is the kitchen and small hall and pantry. Not nearly as large an area but lots of corners and will be time consuming. Daryl was there part of today working on plumbing but it is a long way from being complete. Don’t think he will complete that tomorrow.
We basically still have 6 doors, window trim and trim for the cased opening, and the remaining laminate to install. Also, a lot of clean up outside. Doubt we will get it all completely done tomorrow but it will be close. This has been an extremely hard working team and much has been accomplished.
We were too hot and tired this afternoon so we didn’t go to the park to walk today. We did have ice cream for supper for the second day in a row. (Confession is good for the soul.)
