The job site was bustling again today with plenty of work!  Carl and Raymond continued to install drywall with Ruth's help.  Cara and Brianna taped all the drywall seams.  Bev, Pam, Bronwyn and Jeff removed and re-installed the siding at the back of the house (this was the third time it has been installed and removed to "get it right").  Dana and Olivia prepped the gable on the porch with Ty-vek and started to install the siding.  Cori, Monica, Isabel & Cameron tended to a variety of odd jobs including more digging of drainage ditches!

Jennifer, the homeowner, has been working with us throughout the week and we have shared some wonderful fellowship with her.  Today, Jennifer was celebrating her birthday.  She arrived on the job site to a chorus of "Happy Birthday" and then we decided that today would be a great day to give her the wonderful quilt.  Jennifer loved the colours and was very happy to receive the hand-made gift.

After a lunch of deep fried chicken (which was yummy!) it started to rain and we decided that we would leave the job site to explore some of the local businesses in Kilmarnock.  It also gave some of us an opportunity to catch up on some rest.

Typically on Wednesday nights we go out on our own as a group for dinner to a local restaurant.  This year was no different.  We went to Crabs and Cues which is a lovely restaurant just outside of town that serves wonderful local seafood and offers karaoke on Wednesday night.  Some of us enjoyed the all you can eat shrimp and we all got up to sing a variety of songs throughout the evening.

Had a rain storm pass through tonight which has pushed the warm air away and will be replaced with some cooler temperatures and high winds.  Not the storm we understand that you all have dealt with today. 

Thanks to Stephane for your video message.
