May 16, 2016

Mason has officially been gone 20 months (as of May 10) and will be home 3 months from tomorrow - here is the e-mail we got today . . . 
So this has been a good week full of service. The weather has been so good this week it only rained on Sunday and even then not very much. On Monday after emailing we got a call from a member family, the Winkles, who are making a living roof. So it will be like a hobbit roof with grass on it. We offered to help out with it so they called asking if we were free. So we went over and sanded the roof to prep for gluing down the rubber to water proof the roof. While we were working, one of their neighbors asked us if we could help her with her lawn so we said yes and set up for Tuesday to go and see her. Then we had dinner with the Winkles.

Tuesday we went and saw the lady her name is Valerie and we took a look at her ride-on lawn mower and got it going because she was having problems with it. Then we moved some rocks out of the front lawn. Then we went back over to the Winkles and glued down half the rubber mat and then had dinner. After that we went to mutual since we were invited and played cricket, which was a lot of fun.

Wednesday we saw Rebecca and Aaron and had a pretty good lesson with them. Then we went and saw Lee and Naomi Billington, Rebecca is also Naomi's sister. Lee wants to build two gates and a fence for his front lawn so we did some measuring for that. Then we helped mow the lawn. Then they made us dinner. It is always great seeing Lee and Naomi.

Thursday we went back over to Valerie and filled in some holes that were in the lawn then we had to take another look at the mower and the battery needs to be replaced so yea not much more we could do there. Then we went and did some work at the Tolworthy's croft and had dinner with them.

Friday we went out to Wick to look for where to get the wood for Lee and Naomi and did some finding out there and that was pretty much it - nothing to exciting.

Saturday was the usual service Saturday. But at the Tolworthy's croft after mucking out the barn we power washed it and it looked so much better. Power washers are the best.That was pretty much our week - love and miss you guys.
