Week 38


Darrell and I ventured out to the new Ethiopian restaurant in Antioch.  It was a wonderful experience!  The food was DELICIOUS, even the beets.  (I usually don't like beets.)  The layout was beautiful, too, with all the different colors of the foods.

Overall, we were definitely pleased.

Week 37


Some folks from work ventured out to the San Antonio Taco Co., and my intern Kelly and I went with them.  Kelly took this picture for me.  Thanks, Kelly!  :^)

They didn't have much I could eat there, but it was tasty.

Week 36


For this week, I signed up to volunteer with administrative duties at the Hadley Park Community Center.  I take it as a good sign that the work was slow... apparently most people who need FEMA aid have applied for it.  Plus, it was Mother's Day, so I'm sure a lot of folks were just trying to get out and enjoy the day with their families.

I met some fun people, and I got my tetanus shot, in case I do end up finding "field work" that is light enough for me to handle next weekend.

Week 35


First, I went to the Progress center to drop off some clothes.  Progress is a home for special needs adults, and one of their houses flooded.  Two adult men were living there with a lady companion, and she escorted them to safety in the flood.  (I hear it was quite a feat!)  The companion and the men lost all their clothes to the flood waters, so I rustled up what I could around the house that would fit them and brought a bit to help.


Then, we went to Metro Animal Control to drop off cat food, litter, and some laundry detergent.  I hear they are in need of supplies now more than ever with all the animals displaced and lost in the flooding.
