We left the Houston area where we had been parked at our friend's Olan and Lola's on Saturday morning.
Our drive to outside of Austin took just under 3 hours. Most of the drive was through rain. It was pouring when we got here. But that's okay, Leonard does the outside setting up, I do the inside.
We are working at Decker United Methodist Church.
The church was built around 1903. The interior woodwork is beyond beautiful.
Blogger Carol from www.weremovingon.blogspot.com was in the area getting ready to start a new adventure. We made plans to meet for dinner. She suggested:
As we were walking to the truck to meet them, one of our NOMADS co-workers was walking back to our rig to ask if we wanted to go with them for Bar BQ. Hey, come with us instead. So Kitty and John joined us to meet up with Carol and Kevin. The other NOMAD couple had not arrived at the site yet.
Okay - blogging freinds, this is what Carol looks like. And her hubby-to-be Kevin.
Ooops, Kevin eyes are closed. Had I seen that when I took the picture I would have taken another!
So, now we've worked two days. One major challenge is done. The church had an addition built in the 60's. Apparently there has been a leak under some large windows. Our men removed and replaced the rotted wood. They also have had some flooding and new carpet and wood trim was put in place. The trim was never polyurethaned. We did that today. The grass REALLY needs cutting. I love mowing. As soon as it dries up enough, I will get right on it.
I've not been keeping up with reading blogs lately. Been really busy while in Houston visiting family and now in Austin doing our volunteering. I do hope all is well and I will catch up as I can.
