The Rest of the Week

It's been busy this week so I haven't written anything since Tuesday, so here's a summary!

Wednesday was busy, the team got almost the entire roof on the house, and poured the first concrete layer for the floor. Here's some photos. I seem to have missed finding the cement photos .. they have been covering the outside walls with insulation too.

Thursday while the floor dried (and Garry had a meeting in Zaporosia) the team toured a bit of the city and ate lunch at a traditional Ukrainian restaurant. They enjoyed seeing the market and did a bit of shopping there. We also visited the big Orthodox church where a special service was underway.

Friday morning Garry wasn't feeling well (he has been coughing) but he went to work anyway. He was home in bed  by 11am. He has a fever, sore throat... I hope it isn't mono! His cough makes you think bronchitis, but he is still in bed Saturday night, in spite of coming out and going to breed someone's cow after lunch Saturday.

The team from Lacombe has kept working, here are a few more  photos.

Friday they closed in the front of the attic

soup's on for 18!

 I took the  ladies grocery shipping in Dnepro after lunch Saturday and the rain started late afternoon. That made it cold and miserable, since the wind was howling all day. It would like to blow you away, and was blowing a lot of dirt, branches, and building supplies

Here's some photos at coffee tine this morning, in the  afternoon the guys got the pipes bent and  down so they can pour concrete again Monday morning.

Everyone wants to share with Polo

coffee, tea, cookies?

A final shout out for this boy from the village who kept showing up and working with our guests and students for cookies and tea, I guess. Shown here with Valeria.

And one for Doug and Marcie who sent me back from Manitoba ins year with a game for Garry, our new friends from Alberta are enjoying it in the evenings.

Well time changes tonight so it's after midnight tomorrow time, goodnight.
