Go Jaspers Go!

Hello again faithful readers! Isn’t it crazy how time flies? Since the last time I blogged, we’ve made some serious progress on Edinburgh. A lot of that progress is thanks to some awesome volunteers we had from Manhattan College! Fun fact, did you know that Manhattan College isn’t actually in Manhattan? #jeopardyquestions

Anyways, our volunteers laid hardy the entire week and had the most positive attitude for working in such cold weather. It was a balmy 20 degrees most of the week (looks like they brought the cold with them), but they still kept bright smiles on their faces. Here are some pics!

One of the days for lunch, we rewarded ourselves with some hearty Parkway Po’Boys. For those of you who don’t live in New Orleans, Parkway Po’Boys are pretty much the best thing ever. I always go for the Surf n Turf which is a sandwich that has roast beef and fried shrimp. Totally worth the extra 12 lbs I put on. Now I understand why bears eat extra honey when they hibernate. It’s so they can stay warm! Wait. Is that real or just a Winnie the Pooh thing?

Well faithful readers, that’s all I have for you this week. Tune in next week and I’ll share some updates on how tiling and the bamboo flooring is coming along. Also, I’ll look into that “bears eating honey thing”!

Much Love,

Ileana
