It rained on Saturday. It rained the Saturday before too. There is so much painting to be done and it just rains on Saturdays — but we press on, timing each section with a break in the clouds and somehow it works. So this week, we arrived for our Saturday work time and were asked to come back at 10:00 when the weather looked like it would clear. I came back around 9:30 and we launched into the side wall of the Convent. It was a ball really, five girls with paint and ladders and lots to talk about. And the vantage point from the convent roof was fascinating! We saw the new barn with ladders up its side like a medieval fort being breached…paint buckets swinging. We saw the team scurrying to prepare snacks for hungry workers (we love these people!), and through the window to the sister’s infirmary, we saw a sister recovering from an injury enjoying the sight of us outside her window — like a visitor with her own private pass to the zoo, peering through the glass at the wild animals! The best part? We finished the wall we set out to finish — minus the rain!
