Washing off some tools.
Needing to screed and get it level.
Tougher to do by yourself.
Nearly leveled off.
Got it finished before lunch. Patsi and I went to Hobbs and to run a few errands. I had some new glasses I needed to pick up and we ended up buying some 'copperas' to stain the new concrete. But before we stain, I still have three more pours to do. We had sizzler nachos at Luna's for lunch. You can't go wrong with sizzler nachos for a quick lunch.
It's beginning to look a little different, but we still have a ton of work to do. The plan is to come off of the RV shed roof about 5' out from the greenhouse and cover that area. Eventually, I'll have a roof over the full width of the shop to act as a patio storage area. In addition to having quite a bit more concrete to pour, I have quite a bit of tin to put up for a roof. But like I said before.........a little at a time.
Here's two views of the second ray. Patsi helped me mix the concrete today. She was a big help. But before I pour any more, I think I'll have to take a few days off to recuperate. Seems like I forgot how taxing pouring concrete can be. I AM TIRED!!!
To top all that off, I was watering my tulips and daffodils this morning and happened to trip and ended up falling .....literally flat on my butt!! I was backing up and tripped on a rock in the sidewalk and landed flat and I mean flat, on my butt. At first I thought I'd really busted my rear (it did hurt) and was worried I'd screwed up big time, but I was able to get up and move with no pain. I'm sure I'll be pretty stiff tomorrow, but I feel lucky I didn't really get hurt.
And....I have quite a few tulips breaking through, and a bunch of daffodils. Hopefully we'll have a field of blooms in a few weeks.
Until next time.....
