One of the interesting parts about being a Sower is that we often get to do jobs that are eerily familiar to us. The ladies’ main job at this project has been focused on the Forrest Guest House – a turn of the century home that is now being used as a Bed & Breakfast for visiting speakers, parents, whomever. It is a lovely home – and reminds me in so many ways of the home we left behind in Jamison. The tall windows, the cobwebs that just appear in those high corners, hard to reach ceiling fixtures, …… We’ve been combining general “change-over the rooms from guest to guest” to some more thorough fall housecleaning – windows, curtains, and the like. Since there are four of us, I feel like we’re the Merry Maids swooping in to get it done! The hostess that lives there thinks she has died and gone to heaven! 🙂
The men are siding a single wide mobile home. It’s going well – and Gary is just happy to be doing something other than HVAC!
But it’s not all work and no play. The weekend was clear and crisp and we took the opportunity pile in one of the college vans and hit the road to see some of the local sights and scenery. We drove through Helen, GA (we had actually been there almost exactly 2 years ago) and climbed up to the top of Brasstown Bald (also a repeat from the last visit). We also stopped at Tallulah Gorge – well, we were too cheap to actually get to the gorge, but we stopped at the exact spot where Karl Wallenda crossed the gorge in 1970. Ah, the sight and sounds of NE Georgia!
Here are a couple of shots from the top of Brasstown Bald –
And from the porch of the Forrest Guest House, you can see Toccoa Falls which are located right on the campus ~
I haven’t actually seen the Falls up close and personal, but I’m sure I’ll get there before the end of the project.
