working out

worked well past dark last night ( Friday)
b y the light of a single 100 watt bulb
I moved tonnes* of fill into the garage foundation ( stem walls)
to get ready for the coming of the concrete slab.

Saturday, back at it, with two helpers.
Hanging 5/8 inch drywall,
and more soil moving, compaction,
its a blast doing outdoor work in November
with a short sleeve shirt on ( at 6:30 pm)

no need for a Gym membership,
this year, or ever.
we work out at work.

blog pictures of the work ( not my house Russ)

hey, the gym ain't too bad, but I wish I could do more stuff outdoors. Thanks for the visit, I take it you came out okay with the fires in the area. I know some weren't so lucky.

All the men I know are definitely wimps compared to you! I could certainly uses someone who could help me fix up stuff around the house...never mind build one. Michele says hello.

I know the feeling because I worked outside on the cranberry bogs here for 9 fall seasons, which would sometimes run into December in the snow. Dawn to dusk, 7 days per week, except in the rain, but sometimes it would begin raining n you'd have to run to cover all the berries with tarps to keep the "dry-picked" dry-
The bags into the machine were 70 lbs, the boxes out to pallets were 50 lbs.
Now I'm still dealing with items of that weight at work, but inside a warm building- not this week tho!

Hi David, thanks for visiting my blog via Michele.

Now is this what you do for a living?

Or are you remodeling your home?

David - AWESOME blog! I'm intrigued by where you live! We often vacation in the Smokeys and living at 7000 ft must bring on a lot of challenges! Cheers=)

Hello, Michele sent me. AND I will be back!

And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.

Is this work on your own home? I when through this same thing 12 years ago when I built my home from the ground up by myself. And my Dad.
Sunday afternoon is a great time to get out on the water in that virgin kayak.
I got the mahogany on the topside of mine and managed to get the fiberglass laid yesterday. Looking good!
