This kitty is always a huge help on site, as you can see from the tire ruts mikes standing it, it was a pretty wet week to start, that slowed us down as we couldn’t get the machine in the site for Monday and Tuesday, it was a lot of hand bombing things. It felt like I had done a full body work out, man was I stiff. There’s a few of these hangers in the garage portion of the floor system, lots of lvl beams in this area, I think 12 to be exact, maybe abit of over kill but the floor should never bounce. I was solo today so I had promised our builder I would organize the site and get some of our material off the street. Being in the trades I think sometimes we can get a bad name, leaving sites a mess, taking over a subdivision trying to get things done, sometimes it’s easy to forget that there are neighbours, ppl trying to go about their everyday routine while we track mud all over the place, drop nails, make noise. The family beside us have been great as progress moves forward on this house, the last thing I wanted to do was leave all our mud in front of their driveway, possibly with nails in it, so as a thank you I made sure to scrap the street and sweep anything left out of their way. Now that the sites good to go for Monday and the busy week ahead it’s time to go take the dogs out, wash the truck, give it a good cleaning inside and then relax!! Happy Saturday everyone!! 😃#framerlife#framer#catapillar#zoomboom#edmonton#yeg#sarasota#sarasotahomes#stalbert#mud#organization#buildstuff#cleansite#beagoodneighbor#cleanup#weekend#truck#fordf150#construction#contractor#constructionsite
I love words. Especially words that uplift our spirits and encourage. Words that tell us how to live abundantly.
Sometimes a photo takes my mind in an unexpected direction. Like these words from Galatians: Bear ye one another's burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ. #liveabundantly#followchrist#beagoodneighbor
Whether you help a neighbor with something, hold open a door 🚪 give a compliment, a simple nod or even just putting the cart 🛒 back at the grocery store 🏬 All these things matter. Something so small could mean something so big to someone else.
Be kind today.
Who’s going to say no to cookies am I right? We’re planning a neighborhood cookie social (so far all the neighbors we have met are stoked about it) so in preparation I tried this three ingredient pumpkin cookie recipe, they’re amazing y’all!! A box of spice cake, one can of pumpkin and some chocolate chips. Make them, invite some neighbors you don’t know over and see what happens...I promise they’ll thank you and you may make new friends! Happy Friday loves 🍪 #beagoodneighbor#ministryofordinaryplaces#buildalongertable#fall#sharethelove#shineyourlight#bethelight
Living in the lands of twisty turny country roads it seems alarmingly often that people drive off of them. Tonight’s “pull em out” adventure was particularly odd. The driver of this one hit the fence and her husband ran off the same road himself on the way to help her! Double whammy! On the up side I met another neighbor that has a first gen Bronco project in his garage.... 🤗👍#countryliving#payattention#dontpanic#nocrash#beagoodneighbor#helppeople
God not only calls us to end physical hunger, but also spiritual hunger. You see, the world is full of people searching to satisfy this deep hunger they have for something more. These people crave to be known, and so they look to the things of the world to fill this unexplainable void, only to find their longing remains. But it doesn't have to.
With Jesus, there is no more hunger & that's news worth sharing. "Never again will they hunger; never again will they thirst." - Revelations 7:16a #thegoodneighb
Hey @walgreens 2817 N. Clark St. Chicago, would you please put some anti bird collision stickers on your windows. This is a weekly if not daily event, fortunately this little one was just stunned but I’ve seen too many dead ones on your sidewalks #beagoodneighbor#walgreens
Flooding - especially flash flooding - has been a part of life for central Texans for generations. These pictures from the Austin History Center (Austin Public Library) give a glimpse into how quickly city life could change in Austin prior to the start of the Lower Colorado River Authority (LCRA) in 1935 - the same year some of these photos were taken.
LCRA was created to create an effective flood management system of dams along the mighty Colorado River to help control massive flooding events in the future. From those efforts we now have tools to help us better predict when the water will rise in our area (https://hydromet.lcra.org/). Today, we're keeping our fellow Rangers at places like @southllanoriverstatepark @inkslakesp @lbjstatepark @coloradobendstatepark and those impacted by the current flooding events in our thoughts.
So far the water levels here at McKinney Falls are high enough that we wouldn't recommend crossing the falls or swimming, but are not causing any structural damage.
Want to lend a hand and help the parks that were impacted? Keep an eye on their Facebook pages for upcoming volunteer events after the water levels have gone down.
Stewardship of public spaces is a learned behavior and often a lonely effort. Acting on behalf of the common good not only benefits the places we love, but benefits us as individuals as it binds us to these places through pride and a sense of ownership. Embrace the thought of “if we don’t, who will?” Next time you’re at an event and you notice race tape or trash around, grab it. If someone sees you, know that they just might be inspired to do it as well. If they don’t, you know the park is the way you’d want it to be. #BeAGoodNeighbor
It was actually cold here yesterday in Arizona, the high was only 66 degrees, a little windy 💨 and it sprinkled ☔️off and on which also means it was the perfect day to make a hearty delicious soup 🥣 for dinner! Chicken and Dumplings is a family favorite and surprisingly I can get my kids to eat entire spoonfuls 🥄 of vegetables as long as there’s a dumpling waiting in their bowl!! 🤩 Because it’s so easy to cook with Thrive groceries I made a nice big batch and took some over to my neighbors (retirees from Canada 🇨🇦) who just got into town but were both suffering from a bad cold 🤧! They were so grateful because neither of them was feeling up to making dinner! I’m so grateful for how having Thrive groceries in my pantry not only left with my family but allows me to bless those around us as well! 💝 Grocery shopping @rachelsthriving .
THRIVE Chicken & Dumplings
10 cups water
1 cup THRIVE Veloute Sauce
8 -10 tsp THRIVE Chicken Bouillon
2 cups THRIVE Chopped Chicken
1 cup THRIVE Green Peas
1 cup THRIVE Sweet Corn
1/2 cup THRIVE Celery
1/2 cup THRIVE Chopped Onion
1/2 cup THRIVE Carrot Dices
Salt and Pepper to taste
2 cups THRIVE Flour
1 teaspoon THRIVE Salt
Fill large stock pot with 10 cups water and place on stove over medium high heat. Whisk in
Veloute and Chicken Bouillon until dissolved. Add the remaining ingredients and stir to combine. Bring mixture to a boil. While waiting for soup to boil prepare the dumplings.
To prepare the dumplings: Mix the flour with the salt and mound together in a mixing bowl. Beginning at the center of the mound, drizzle a small amount of ice water over the flour. Using your fingers, and moving from the center to the sides of the bowl, gradually incorporate about 3/4 cup of ice water. Knead the dough and form it into ball.
Pull off a piece and drop into the simmering soup. Repeat. Gently stir motion so the dumplings become submerged and cook evenly. Cook until the dumplings float and are no longer doughy, 3 to 4 minutes. ***If you aren't a fan of the larger ball type dumplings then you can roll out the dough and cut into 1in square pieces and drop those into the pot one at a time.
Congrats to our good friend @andrewdewey for winning the Walter S. Blackburn Award at this year’s @aiaindiana Service Awards a couple weeks back! Andrew’s dedication to empowering neighbors and neighborhoods to take ownership of their community inspires all of us to do better both inside our field of architecture and out.
One of the things we stress in our junior high program is giving back to the community through acts of service. Students help plant gardens, feed the homeless, and clean up their neighborhood. Yesterday, the students decide to celebrate their teachers by writing them letters of encouragement. How awesome is that?! #givingback#beagoodneighbor#urbanministry#youthministry
We really appreciate the pawsitive vibes sent our way from our good friend Destiny! Plus, isn't Aleu just adorable!? 🐾💛 #thegoodneighb .
If your four-legged friend is in need of some companionship training, Pawsitive Pup Training is the way to go! Make sure to check out her page! @destinydogtraining
Our program Mobile Moms is celebrating 20 years! That’s two decades of assisting pregnant women in need of transportation to get to essential medical appointments for their pregnancy. Thanks to everyone who has donated and made this program, and all Travelers Aid programs, possible!
It’s easy to be overwhelmed by the stunning imagery of the catastrophic damage to the communities in the Florida Panhandle following #hurricanemichael - The effect is somewhat similar to a deer in the headlights-you simply are frozen into inaction by the scale of it. As an alternative, we would encourage you to think about your ability to help a single individual in their moment of great need. If we all simply helped our neighbor or the person closest to us, our communities across the country, not those affected by this catastrophe, would be so much stronger. @byronbeplay , @joshxcastle and @blaine1201 with the support of @global_surgical_medical_group are doing just that near their homes in Florida! #beagoodneighbor#naturaldisaster#firstresponders#northamericanrescue#gsmg
TGN long sleeve logo tees are perfect for this dreary weather! Grab one & be reminded to brighten up your neighbors day! ☀️
Shout out to @alexandriarenee.s for this fresh pic & being our first featured customer! 💙
Morning will come soon and we will need to band together once more to piece our community back together again.
Thank a lineman while you’re out serving in your city and remember that each one of us can do something good for another.
We will let you know how you can help once we survey the damage ourselves. As you see places around the area that need help, please post to our page so we can know as well.
Be blessed. Stay safe. ❤️#hurricanemichael#loveyourcommunity#serveothers#beagoodneighbor#loveyourneighbor#albanyga#thankalineman

The church has never been about a building. It has always been greater than that. It is about a way of being in the world.
We have access to God wherever we are - regardless of how modest or ordinary the surroundings. Where 2 or 3 are gathered, He is present. Right here. Right now. This is Church. #thegoodneighb
