We moved today.
It wasn’t far, but still and all- the slides have to come in, the breakables need to be bungied down, and things that roll have to be secured. Okay, let’s be real – when you’re only moving from one end of the camp to the other, lots of things just get piled on the bed!
We did have to wait for the horses to cross.
It was a beautiful day for a trail ride, by the way!
But we made it safely and are now settled in our new neighborhood!
And we are loving some of the neighbors –
Hey, pretty girl – look this way for the camera!!!!
In other news, we had a great first week.
After a couple of days of data entry (inputting guest surveys), we ladies moved to this building.
This is a Yurt. These buildings are usually filled with bunk beds for sleeping or chairs for meeting, but in our case, it was filled with machines for sewing!
Every window in the camp is being fitted with the same basic curtain. And we are on the team that is making that happen!
So fun! (Plus, I can go over in the afternoon and work on some personal (as in CHRISTMAS) sewing! Yippee!!)
All good, all good!
The guys meanwhile are making great progress on that gatehouse. From slab to under roof in just 4 short days.
And that was with a rainy day thrown in. Needless to say, with all the ladder work, my guy was pretty happy for the 4 day work week. And a jumbo bottle of ibuprofen!
There was a group from YWAM (Youth with a Mission) here this week so we not only got to enjoy meals in the dining hall, but we also got to interact with some of those great young people! Here are some of our SOWER hands playing a goofy table game with lots of other young hands.
The more mature at the table did not win.
But we also had a game night and a really fun and delicious evening out at a local Amish(-ish) restaurant, The Wooden Spoon. They only serve an evening meal one night a week, and folks were lined up well before the doors opened. By the time we were done, we understood the draw.
Oh yeah, baby. Now that was a dinner! (Not to mention that salted caramel 6 layer cake that Gary & I split. Oh My.)
Today, while we were packing up and moving, the rest of the gang did a bit of sightseeing. Safaris, historic villages – there’s quite a bit to see and do in this little corner of Oklahoma. Actually, I think most of the sightseeing was in Arkansas, but who’s judging. Hopefully next weekend, with the interior renovation almost complete, we’ll be able to take in some sights ourselves.
One last picture before I say goodnight –
Isn’t it pretty here?
