Flexibility - the word for the day

We awoke to the "pattering"? of the rain drops on the top of the trailer this morning which meant a rearranging of schedules for the day.
With just a few minor adjustments we were all headed out the door and ready for the day ahead.
The top two photos are at Rosemary's house where the floor tile continues to spread across the floors. David has the wet saw down to an art and the rest of the team is busy spreading, placing and spacing the tiles. They are a mixture of California and Iowa and you would think they had know each other forever.
The following two photos are at Susan's house. The team is discussing whether they will be ready for the rough in electrical inspection. The decision was yes so off to the building department I went. They were kind enough to squeeze us in for tomorrow afternoon and the team promised they would be ready.
Next is the team at Jim and Cindy's with the grouting. By the time Gladys had cleaned the tile on the bathroom floor you could have eaten your lunch there! They finished their jobs by the end of today and Jim and Cindy are pleased. This team will learn the meaning of "flexible" for tomorrow as they will be divided and heading to other jobs.
The last two photos are at Mike's house. The mold had been so bad in one of his bedrooms that even the subflooring had to be removed and replaced. That's Mike Jr taking out the flooring from the basement below! They not only got the old flooring out and the new in but they also insulated under the new! Betty and a team will continue the insulation tomorrow. Betty is our insulation "queen" (at the young age of 84) and came equipped with her tool bag ready and loaded!
Diane and team continued at Melvina's with hanging doors and doing the trim. The men there will be relocating to Rosemary's tomorrow to install all of her cabinets. Mike does this for a living so he is excited to take on the task. Diane will have a new team going with her to continue with the trim and caulking.
By the middle of the day the sun was shining and it had turned into a typical spring day in the south. The forecast is for more of the same through the weekend. Iowa is especially happy as they left some pretty cold temps back home.
Both teams are here until Sunday morning so we are only mid way through our work week. The days just run together and pretty soon they have turned into weeks and then into months and we have no idea where we are on the calendar! That "joy of the Lord" thing!
Until tomorrow ... Blessings to all. Susan and Monty
