If you can learn a simple trick, Scout, you’ll get along a lot better with all kinds of folks. You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view, until you climb inside of his skin and walk around in it. -Atticus Finch (To Kill a Mockingbird)
Today the group spent time working on the inside of the house up in Bud. They were able to straighten back door and to install a lock on it and install a new door knob on one of the bedroom doors. The crew also put down the underlayment down in the bathroom that week’s group cut. It was kind of a big life sized puzzle (with a key to help : ) ) After that was down it was time for the tile’s. The new light colored tiles really brighten the room up. With the new floor the door needed to be shaved down so it can swing freely now and close all the way. The bedroom was prepped and is ready for the ceiling to be painted tomorrow. It should be a quick day painting the ceiling and visiting with the family.
Our gourmet meals continued tonight with a pot roast, rolls and a side of pineapple. The beef for the pot roast was donated by our favorite PV butcher and brought down from Minnesota. Thanks Leo!
Reflection tonight was about volunteering and what the spark was that led us each into volunteering. It was interesting to hear the stories and the motivation. Quotes from St. Vincent dePaul were also shared as inspiration.
