"Don't ask yourself what the world needs; ask yourself what makes you come alive. And then go do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive." Howard Thurman

Another hot day awaited us on our last home repair day of the week. Today we had five different home repair sites going on at the same time. We finished the flooring/linoleum site, so the home owner can now return home after a year of being out of her house from the flooding. We were also able to finish up the ramp and powerwashing that we began yesterday for a woman in Brenton. Work continued, and will continue next week on the bathroom site and the site where we are replacing drywall four feet up throughout due to flooding. The last site was helping a man put down some hardwood flooring in his house, also damaged by the flood.

Tonight was our last night of using the kitchen, as we will be packing up everything tomorrow. Dinner was a delicious use of many of the items in the kitchen. We had spaghetti, bread and salad; and a delicious caprese, with tomatoes brought down from Jersey. We were treated to two desserts, brownies and zucchini bars made from zucchini that was brought down earlier in the summer from a volunteer's garden.

Reflection tonight focused on nourishment, how we nourish each other and other nourish us, both literally and figuratively.
