"Hem your blessings with thankfulness so they don't unravel."  Unknown Author

The first day of a new week.... Today we sent our four crews to work on finishing up sites that we were working on last week.  One group went up to Glen Fork to finish up the flooring site.  They were able to get a lot of work done, but still have about two hours left to do.

Another group went up to Glen Rogers to finish up the roof that we started a couple of weeks ago.  We have had a bit of a delay since we are not able to get the materials anywhere near us and had to go to Charleston to pick them up.  They too got a lot of work done, but were a couple of hours short of being able to finish the site.

A third group headed up to Hanover to continue putting the finishing touches on the site we have been working on all summer. It is so close to being ready to move and the homeowner is getting very excited.

A final crew went out to Mullens to finish the drywalling of the the basement ceiling.  Again amazing progress was made.  There were able to drywall, tape and mud the ceiling.  All that is left is a little mudding and some sanding.  It looks fabulous.

After the beautiful day, the weather was fabulous with little humidity, we all gathered at the house for a wonderful taco meal.  Yummy yummy in the tummy tummy.  After the clean up, it was time for reflection.  We all gathered cozily in the living room and reflected on a moment from the day when we felt blessed to be alive.

All in all in was a great day.  There is certainly a different feeling living in such close quarters and living right in town.  With all the windows open all the time you get to hear all the sounds of nature (and of the coal trains running behind the house).
