It always seems that once summer comes we are too busy to finish these projects and this year was no exception, although two of the students did work on drywall finishing over the summer. However, they are still working on it as the middle of September is here.
Garry has been working on house stuff almost every afternoon since he started teaching classes last week and progress is being made. I have been painting rooms as the guys finish the drywall. Not perfect but better than the "new house" I'd say on the drywall finishing. Two of the guys have experience, but they are not professionals.I was trying to think of why the school/apartments have better drywall finishing, but wait, Matthew was on the Salmon Arm team, a professional drywaller.
Garry taught all week last week, every morning except Thursday when I made apple cake and apple sauce with the students for cooking class. This week Larissa is back to teach on Tuesdays, so right now he's tiling more of the floor in the main room. We had a pile of tile leftover, the guys had only done a rectangle in the kitchen area, why not cover more of the cement near the bathroom?
Anyway that's my excuse for not writing recently, too busy! Besides working on the house we had our first SEI followup meeting in Dnepro Friday evening. It was a busy day, with working on the house, I was giving the Crawford's bedroom a second coat of green paint, Garry was installing stuff in the bathrooms, and we had a couple of appointments before our meeting.
We planned to leave around three pm, and then had a crisis, we couldn't find the keys for the Patona house where we meet. Garry and I searched all over but needed to leave to make the painting exchange - our friend Clay was buying a painting and had sent us money to pay for it, we did get it and ended up taking the artist, an SEI student to our next meeting with another SEI student and then to the meeting at Patona.
