Ah, the weekend

Austin,  TX

Our weekend starts today, Friday, as NOMADS work only from Monday to Thursday.   We are still at Decker UMC.

Leonard completed a lot of small tasks around the church but still has a bit of work to finish his main job, helping to install new gutters on the Parsonage.

I finally finished up my two main jobs.  One was mowing 11 acres of grass, a lot of which looked like this.

Once I got through it all yesterday, it was time to start over.

Up the road and around the corner was a sign for the church.  It was made with some type of signage cardboard.  It was confusing, dull, old and falling apart.  

I painted a new one on plywood using stencils I bought but drawing the Cross and Flame and some lettering freehand.   Not a bad job, I say.

Time to head out to Walmart.  Later today we are having dinner at our Granddaughter Tiffany's house north of Austin, about 50 miles from here.

Have a great weekend all.

That is a great job on the sign.

Yep, that's the thing about mowing, especially such a large property. When finish one loop, might as well just start all over again right then and there! Great job on the sign!

That's a definite improvement in the sign!

What a beautiful Church. Your sign is great nice job. And that sure was a lot of mowing you did.

I love to mow on a tractor - fun and not too physically demanding :) I especially like it when it makes such a difference! The sign is great, and if you spray it with polyurethane, especially the top, it will last a long long time :) Just a tip!

Glad you are getting time to spend with family!

nice sign.
think I'd rather put up guttering than cut all that grass!
