Day Four at Habitat de Santa Fe

We began our Friday at the Habitat de Santa Fe with devotions. We read some from the book of Nehemiah and had a short prayer. Then we finished up our coffee and started the work day at the Oshara Village.
It wasn't too long before everyone was fully engaged. Some were working on hanging blinds, vacuuming and doing trim work inside. The rest of us were working outside.
Bill and Pam and I worked most of the day on the picket fence.
It was a very pleasant 65 degrees or so most of the day. We had another terrific lunch provided by a Santa Fe volunteer and had time to sit back and rest.Later in the afternoon Mike Chapman dropped by the work site and said hi. He is a high school buddy (we both grew up here and graduated from Santa Fe High in 1971...). He is President of Chapman Builders and has been in the business a long time. It was great to see him.
A little later Posey and Marty said good bye to some local volunteers.
After a long day (it seems the days get longer as the week progresses) we went back to the Rodeo grounds where the Circus was getting ready for two performances-- not 20 yards away from where we are parked!

But I will save that for another edition of the Roadrunner Chronicles. Thanks again for stopping by.
