Monday started off with final cleaning on our first house, in preparation for the afternoon house blessing. The next project was installing drywall on the second house. Keeping the sand, dust and dirt cleaned up was always an option for the one or two who needed something to do.
We were able to have the first house blessing after a number of uncertainties of it whether it take place. The news media was out and we ended up being on the 6:00 news that evening! It was good to meet with Kevin King and Tom Smucker at the house blessing and later going out to eat with Tom at the Fisherman’s Daughter. We enjoy visiting a different church each week and then having dinner together at a restaurant.
Next week we have a complete house to paint on the inside. We hope the spackling and sanding are done by Monday morning as another group is scheduled for that work.
Flexibility seems to be our word for this week as a number of things changed and people adjusted accordingly as needed. It was all good, but a reminder of how we need to be flexible at all times.
