So we getting ready these days.
We’re getting ready to pack up and pull out. Our project here is winding down (tomorrow, Thursday, is our last day), and Gary can just about smell the road beneath the wheels. We’ve enjoyed our time here, seeing some beautiful sights and making lovely new friends, but when Gary’s ready, he’s ready! Tomorrow after work we’ll be taking care of laundry, making one last trip to Costco, fitting in a stop at the Post Office, and maybe enjoying a final In N Out burger. (OK, so it might not be our final FINAL burger, but it will at least be our final one at THIS In N Out!)
And we’re be getting ready to say good-bye to our new friends. We had a fun group this month – one couple was on their first SOWER project, and the other couple had been full-timing for about 20 years! Quite some diversity! But we all meshed together just fine, and had a grand time. The work wasn’t too hard – the guys mostly worked on painting and refinishing things, while we ladies went between cleaning pre-school classrooms (you don’t want to look at the underside of those tables, believe you me), to putting together admission packets to filling eggs for the Easter egg hunt next week.
Gotta love the diversity of a Sower Project!
Here’s our little group –
Oh, yeah, we had a fun month!
And out in the field that Joshua Tree is getting ready to finish its burst into spring.
Here it was on March 11th-
and it was popping out a little more by the 17th –
And then this week, on the 23rd –
I certainly hope I get to see more of these as we continue our travels in the desert!
And we’re getting ready to be tourists for a week, too! We’ll be traveling to Prescott, Arizona, but along the way we’ll be stopping at Death Valley National Park and then the south rim of the Grand Canyon. Can’t wait for that!
And I’m also getting ready to get some potholders in the mail. The offer is still open, just so you know.
But right now, I’m getting ready to hit the sack. Can’t be shirking on my last day on the job!
