Only a life lived for others is a life worthwhile

Message of the Day: Picked by Ed “So do all who live to see such times, but that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us. There are other forces at work in this world Frodo besides the will of evil. Bilbo was meant to find the ring. In which case, you were also meant to have it, and that is an encouraging thought. ” Gandalf- Lord of the Rings

Daily Journal: Our return Sunday night to Santa Elena was very welcomed.  It was nice to spend time at the beach in Tamarindo, but getting back to more familiar sites was comforting.  We were also sad to see the rest of our team leave but there were conversations had about seeing each other again, and there was still work to be done!

It was a beautiful day so Ed took advantage and got many of the outside work done under the watchful eye of the local dog posse.  The sign posts got their second coat of paint and the fascia was brought back to life.  Gutters we cleaned up and a new task of tackling the CASEM sign at the top of the building began. Two people, two ladders and two levels of roof to navigate, and a plan was forged to start this work project that we weren’t sure we would be able to do.

Before we knew it is was time for lunch, which was an amazing casado con pollo.  We both enjoyed it and were ready to return to work!  The rest of the day went fast and Ed even managed to secure the piece of roofing that had been flapping all week in the wind.  I know everyone was glad to not have to listen to that anymore.
We returned to the Mar Inn and decided to go out and celebrate a bit of the New Year with a walk to some of the local watering holes and a nice dinner; getting back to the Mar Inn just in time to see the New Year arrive in New York City. -Amy
