Well, the last two days have been productive, challenging, hot, hot, hot.
Wednesday we spent the day at College St Louis ... updated laptops in both classrooms and teachers lounge, 5 teachers, Fr Ernest, Fr Luxo.
After a sweaty hike back to the house, sitting to cool off a bit with about a liter of cool water, I headed up for a shower. Normally, that's a cool refreshing experience, but today the water was almost hot ... never hot water! That told me water in the roof tank was getting low.
We've not had city power that last 2 nights, so haven't been able to pump water from the well which seems to be running dry! Next thing, about bed time we realized the coffee jar was empty. AARRRRGGGG! So the prospect of a night with no fans, getting up to no water and no coffee to brew in whatever fashion made for a great view of Thursday morning. Running downtown to Heine Bros or Starbucks ain't an option!
So the way Wednesday night played out, the batteries gave out about 1:30 or so. Don had already decided to sleep on the couch, so he ran the small generator several times so the fans came on once in awhile. Still had a bit of water coming out of the tap. Mia had poured some left over coffed into a pot, so we fired up the gas stove and had some day or two old coffee that wasn't all bad!
Don and I spent most of the day at College St Louis again finished the classrooms, getting machines in storage updated and taking care of 2 more teachers. As of this afternoon we've upgraded 150 laptops! Two elementary schools to go!
Got to meet Ketlie, a teacher who came on board after my last visit, saw others I hadn't seen thus far. Hugs all around! Great folks to work with.
We're praying for City Power tonight. I teased Fr Ernest this afternoon ... asked him if it was part of the National Flag Day celebrations. He seems perplexed at the power issue.
Guess that's enough stuff for the moment. I hear the weather in Louisville is getting nice. Enjoy it!
