So another week when it was hard to know in which direction to run first with one's iPad, ready to take some stunning photo. Blogger runs, but will let you judge the quality of the photos. Here are a few shots from the kitchen area:
In the first photo on the left, we are looking across a newly opened area from the kitchen hall to the bookracks in the hall leading to the cafeteria. Tn the second shot, the workman had left his tool in place to help him find it in the morning (just being silly, blogger is). What he seems to be doing is creating a spot for a new stove platform, which will be in that general area just behind the old sink that was next to the ice maker. (Memory and imagination help in most of these photos since what the viewers who are familiar with the old probably will not recognize familiar land marks.) The steps may be more familiar to many of you. They were the ones you passed on the way to the kitchen. They are "all gone" now to make way for a floor that will stretch from the kitchen hallway to the opposite wall to create a new room.
Now to the elevator tower and related. The first shot
gives you an idea of how early the men began work.
It is about 6:45 on a cloudy morning with the sun
crating a strong silhouette. Blogger brightened it a
bit so you could see a few features. You can see perhaps
that the white stone work is getting close to the top and
that the scaffolding may seem a little less cluttered.
The photo on the left below is the tower from the other side, and you can see lots of bricks ready for use above the outside door to the chapel area which is still in the brick motif, to use a fancy, though not very accurate word. This entryway is to the left of the elevator tower, and blogger thinks it will take awhile but knows that things can move much more quickly than she anticipates. More photos to follow next week on that topic. (It might be well here to throw in a caveat, namely that the arrangement of the text pretty much goes where the blog site wants to put it, not the way the blogger hopes it goes.)
The photo to the right is one inside the tower showing the opening
for the elevator stop on that floor (maybe third).
Have a week of recognized blessings. Au revoir.
