Today was our first day back to work so we were up early to walk a couple of miles. The temperature was 73 so it was a nice walk. It’s been a while since we worked a three week project so we felt a little out of practice getting ourselves organized this morning.
Morning devotion was at 8:00 by Dave. He had us thinking/talking about our life journey and how God brought us all to this place today for His purpose. After devotion and our prayer time, we all were assigned our jobs for the day. We both worked with Kitty on the one of the cabins. We are going to be installing laminate flooring and making other needed repairs at the cabin. We first removed the base trim and assess and repaired the damaged areas (water leaks) of the flooring. We got all that done and will be ready to start installing the laminate in the morning. As we were cleaning up at the end of the day Kitty went to the cabin next door to get a broom and found a lot water in the floor. It seems the toilet was over flowing. Max got the water turned off and we spent the next hour sweeping out the water and then vacuuming up the water. An unusual end of our day.
Other projects for our team include building a new set of steps for the infirmary. Shannon, Mariel and Carol are working on those and made good progress on that project today. The rest of the team, Dave, Dale, Peggy and John are working at the barn. They will be building a maintenance/tool room in one part of the barn. They worked on installing forms and placing the pea gravel today and tomorrow will be pouring the concrete. Concrete is to be delivered at 1:00 tomorrow. Lots accomplished today but much more to do. It’s going to be a good three weeks.
