Monday, August 1

"Love the earth and the sun and animals: Despise riches, give aims to everyone that asks; Stand up for the stupid and crazy; Devote your income and labor to others...And your very flesh shall be a great poem." Walt Whitman

A great day. We broke into two work crews today to go up to Hanover and finished off two sites that carried over from last week. We finished plumbing a bathroom for the gentleman up in Hanover. He is all set except for one more two foot wall to frame and drywall. He has a working sink, toilet and shower.

We also went up to continue work on the site where we have been ripping out flood damaged drywall, replacing it, mudding and taping and painting it. We made some progress, but as always we have more to do. We are going to try to get up there one more day.

After a warm and tiring day, we relaxed on the porch at the house and felt like we were watching wild kingdom. There were birds, cats, dogs and more dogs. Being able to enjoy the nature around us was a real treat.

Dinner tonight was homemade pizza, along with corn on the cob, salad, banana muffins, and oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. Yummy yummy!

Reflection tonight focused on water, the good and the bad of water. We were each asked to drink a glass of water and share whether it was good or bad, and why that was the case.
