It seems crazy to me that our Montrose summer is coming to an end. Yet here we are, with suitcases packed and the fridge organized for a quick cooler-pack in the morning, getting ready to head to the Cabin tomorrow morning! We’ve hugged the summer staff and said our farewells to the full-time staff. But before we load up the truck and pull out tomorrow, I figured I’d better give a recap of just what we’ve been doing all summer.
(Full disclosure – According to Gary, I’ve been playing most of the summer: a SOWER sister get-away, a cruise with my sisters, a surprise day at Knoebels with our daughter and family, a week with our grandgirl Maddie, and then a long Vermont weekend for a family wedding. And there is some truth to that, because those excursions were beyond precious to me! But honest, some work was done!)
My primary job this summer (when I wasn’t off playing) was to help with housekeeping. And for me that meant making beds and cleaning guest rooms.
And when I wasn’t putting clean sheets on the beds, I was making the sheets clean.
At a busy conference center there are ALWAYS beds to be made, and sheets and towels to be washed. Nothing like a job security!
Oh, I also got to do a bit of kitchen work and even was tasked with sewing a batch of new aprons.
So it wasn’t ALL about bed linens!
Gary was disappointed that the walk-in Refrigerator/Freezer project didn’t happen as expected, but there were plenty of other projects to keep him busy.
There was the new guest room in Torrey
and a porch landing to rebuild.
He also got the new dorm rooms closer to finish (though I don’t have any pictures of that) and the last couple of weeks he worked on moving some ductwork in the Rec Hall. Again, I don’t have any pictures of the actual work, but I did get a picture of the completed job. Well, at least from the pretty side!
Those fine registers (or at least their installation) are his handiwork!
If he hadn’t already gone to bed, I’m sure he could list out more projects that he worked on.
Lord willing, there will be a foundation (and maybe even some framing done!)here next summer.
It was a chock-full of fun (and work) summer for us, and as always, we were blessed to be here at Montrose Bible Conference.
But I gotta tell you, and this point we can hear the cabin calling………
