Sunday, September 19, 2010      9 comments

Monday, August 30, 2010      8 comments

Today I am listening to my body and calling a halt to all of the hard physical labor. It is a difficult decision to make because one section of the roof is almost done and could be if we worked a couple of hours tonight. This day of rest will al... Read more
