Through Week Two

Did you have a good week? We did! The weather was beautiful and work worthwhile!
It was back to the paint brushes for us SOWER ladies this week! We finished up our craft room painting and moved to painting doors in one of the lodges.
Eight doors and three sets of closet doors later….
it was decided that those freshly painted doors made the walls look pretty tired, so we’ll be moving on to wall painting starting Monday! Ah, job security!
And the guys? They’ve been busy doing electrical work and fixing some plumbing issues and even did some trim work in the dining hall. None of which I have any pictures of. (Gary has zero interest in documenting his work, bless his heart!)
Next week they start on untangling the piping mess in the pool pump house.
Now there’s some job security! I’ll be sure to post some ‘after’ pictures as I’m sure the transformation will be quite a sight to see!
Have a good LORD’s day, friends – and a happy Father’s Day to boot!

Week One Done

The first week on a project is always interesting. We’re beginning to find our way around the camp, getting better acquainted with our fellow SOWER workers, and, after a over seven weeks of being ‘off’, getting used to that alarm going off a O-dark thirty each morning! All in all it’s been a productive week!
Sandy and I tackled a fairly big painting painting job under the main dining hall.
The basement room is used for a variety of purposes (mostly crafts judging by what was in the cupboards) and proved a bit of a challenge in that two walls were grooved paneling,
one was board and batten,
and one was cinder block.
We set to it with gusto
and by the end of the week had at least one coat done on everything!
A quick second coat early next week, and we’ll be on our way to a new task. (Given the amount of paint they purchased, I’m pretty sure we won’t be putting away the brushes anytime soon!)
Meanwhile – the guys have been knocking items off their to-do list with record speed. They built two new sets of stairs the first day
fixed the electric on three pumps and the heater, redid the plumbing in the bathhouse, and fixed the lights in the plumbing corridor (whatever that is!). Gary is pretty terrible at taking pictures of jobs in process, so I’m pretty happy I got those two shots of the stair building project. Then today I actually got an ‘action’ shot –
Yep, Gary untangling an electric box. I think that really is his Happy Place!
All in all, it’s been a good week! And to finish off the week in royal style, Gary & I are leaving at REALLY Zero-dark thirty tomorrow morning (we compromised with an alarm at 3:30, departure by 4!) for a weekend at the Cabin. We’ll be seeing all the siblings and a couple of nieces and families, so while it’s not quite the Full Family Reunion we were hoping for, it will still be wonderful to (shhhhhh) hug the necks of those dear people!
I promise we’ll wash our hands first!
Have a good weekend, friends! Pretty sure I need to be gettin’ to bed!
