Another Day at Habitat de Santa Fe

This is one of the great scenes out of our front window: the sun rising in the east over the foothills of Santa Fe.
We got going at Oshara Village at our 0815 start time and continued with our team assignments. Part of the group was working at another house (Shelley and Lucky) and the other four couples in our Care-A-Vanners team was finishing up at the same house where we worked yesterday.Marty, Maria and Posey were working on the west side of the house securing the wiring for the stucco. Bill, John and Pam were cutting up a precision piece of Hardy Board to fit up under the gable and eves.

10:30, 12:00 and 3:00 are important times on site: morning break time, lunch and the afternoon break time. Like most construction sites, we gather around an area, have some coffee and get to know folks.
We are grateful for the lunches that have been provided by local volunteers. Yesterday we had sandwiches and today we had hot dogs. They really hit the spot.

After our day at Habitat, we joined others at John and Posey's for social hour. This was the first evening that we have gathered with other RVers for a 'social hour'.

I have read about other RVers getting together in the evening but in four months of full-timing this was our first opportunity. We had a chatted for about an hour, had some munchies and drinks, before we departed for our RVs for dinner.
In the distance, some rain showers were coming down and maybe even a light dusting of snow up on the Sangre de Cristo mountains. Yikes! We would rather not see that stuff! It is only supposed to get down to 35 tonight and hopefully it will not get to freezing.

So~ we end another day with the Roadrunner Chronicles and thank you for stopping by!
