I didn’t start teaching today. Today was orientation, final prep of the materials, and…well, whatever else came up.
Morning was spent around the campus, chapel, touring and meeting with a mission team from Atlanta that’s been doing all sorts of things for the seminary.
I spent a chunk of time repairing a hole-puncher, which ended up taking about 2 hours. After lunch, I used it, then returned it to the office.
Some of the fixtures in the staff-house needed to be replaced, so I spent some time with that. As it got dark, it was getting a little chilly (50’s at night), so I decided it was fire-time. I went out to chop wood, but found enough…that’s my first fire since arriving…interesting.
Then I sat back to do paperwork and watching the power blink on and off. It’s off as I write this. Good night.
Unimportant Update for yesterday: I mentioned to Val (my boss’s wife) that it was interesting to me how George (my boss) was very cautious about slowing down and missing potholes, but very aggressive about passing people. This led to a few ridiculous situations where George would zoom around a motorcycle, then immediately slow to a crawl to pass through a hole in the road. Unfortunately, there was too much luggage behind me to see the frustration on the motoman’s face when this happened….oh well.
