Spring Cleaning Day

was today at the church. People starting showing up at 8am. A few members and I finally left around 6:30 pm. Some worked inside cleaning the carpets, walls, pews and hymnals that were all dusty from the recently finished construction. Others worked in the fellowship hall and kitchen cleaning the kids’ stuff or the Bible Study rooms.

I was outside with a few of the guys laying some water pipes for a sprinkler system that has 12 different zones (11 being used), with one being a new water spigot in the middle of the garden so people can use a hose without destroying someone else’s crop.

When the Lord said, “Because you have listened to the voice of your wife and have eaten of the tree of which I commanded you, ‘You shall not eat of it,’ cursed is the ground because of you; in pain you shall eat of it all the days of your life; thorns and thistles it shall bring forth for you; and you shall eat the plants of the field. By the sweat of your face you shall eat bread, till you return to the ground, for out of it you were taken; for you are dust, and to dust you shall return.” He wasn’t foolin’.

We used a trencher, unfortunately we got one on the smaller size, which made the trenching of 1800 ft of pipe impossible to do in one day. We were able to get the ground trenched to the garden, with 200+ ft of pipe laid and then buried.

As I said the trencher was a bit smaller and got stuck easy, which made the trenching a bit of a pain in the butt. Luckily we were able to exchange the trencher for a larger one. Once we got the larger one the trenching went a bit smoother, but we’re still not done. We only have 4 of the 11 zones trenched, sprinkler system installed, and buried. Once this is all done, a company in town is donating sod to cover the area that has the sprinkler system. They’re also donating about 9 maple trees, some perennials, and maybe some bushes. Once we’re all finished I’ll post a few before and after pictures.

Looks like we’ll be doing some more work tomorrow and next weekend. Boy am I tired.
