"The work an unknown good man has done is like a vein of water flowing hidden underground, secretly making the ground green." Thomas Carlyle

Today the crew headed back up to Hanover for one last day of home repair, and one last push for the summer. A small group went and finished up the bathroom we have been working on for a couple of weeks and the rest of the group went to continue work on the trailer where we have been removing drywall, replacing it, mudding sanding and painting. Besides all of the drywall work, today they installed a kitchen sink and cabinet. We were able to completely finish the living room, kitchen and bathroom, so the family can move back in while they continue to work on the remaining rooms.

Dinner tonight was like the story Stone Soup. A big pot of soup was made (well actually two pots of soup were made) from all the leftover vegetables in the house. It turned out to be scrumptious, especially when eaten with homemade the cornbread.

One of our very talented PVs sang us a song for reflection while accompanying herself on the guitar. It was beautiful and quite a treat. For the sharing component, a traditional "new and good" was done. We hadn't done a new and good for so long it was nice to revisit an oldie but goodie.

We can't believe we only have one more day of the PV summer program in West Virginia, where did the time go?
