"Be good to yourself, be excellent to others and do everything with love."  John Wolf

We awoke to another beautiful West Virginia mountain morning. Yesterday's rain cleared and left behind wonderful fresh air.  Today we went back to work on the two sites in Oceana. All the underpinning was fixed at the one site and the porch was pretty much completed.  We will be coming back to the house later in the summer to put on a porch roof and fix some electrical issues in the house.

The other crew worked on the ramp and were almost able to complete it. There are only a few boards left on the railing and then it is just the finishing touches. We're sure the home owner will be happy when the ramp is complete so he can bring his wheelchair bound daughter to live with him.

Both groups joined up at St. Vincent DePaul in the early afternoon to go up to Glen Rogers Manor for Banana Bingo, pool, nail painting and singing. There were lots of residents involved and by all accounts everyone had a great time.

On the menu tonight for dinner was a hearty spaghetti and meatballs, broccoli (there were a lot of groans about the broccoli), and garlic cheese bread. A simple, yet satisfying meal.

Since it is the end of the week, reflection time was a time to look back on the week and process the experiences from  it. We were a small, but mighty group. We accomplished a lot and had a great time doing it.
