Tuesday, March 17, 2015 – Woke up to the sun shining and thought I’d see an electric company truck out there hooking up our power – but no! I called the nice lady at the electric company and she checked with the man in charge of making that happen and they won’t be here until Wednesday…………………… So I called our contracted and he had to push everything back another day!
After depleting every bit of anything Roy had in his body yesterday working on the culvert he got just enough rest last night so he forgot how horrible that was. This morning he ordered a bunch of cross ties (railroad things) to make a form around the RV. He says it will help him with backing Dora into the spot and it will help keep the gravel where it’s suppose to be instead of in the yard. I just helped him move the one in the picture above to the other side of the RV in the back to line up with the ones that’s done. He did comment that he thinks he bit off more than he can chew with this project. After carrying around a total of 6400 pounds of concrete yesterday and then tackling these big things, I agree. Anyone who wants to come on out to Amite tomorrow and help Roy will be welcomed!
Here’s what it looked like after he put it into place.
1.5 done, only 5.5 left! We got these at Gabriel’s Building Supply in Amite for around $12 each. They also have them at Abita Lumber in Abita Springs for around the same price. Abita Lumber also has some of a lower quality for a little over $4 each. If you’re working on your spring garden those might be the one’s to buy!
I took my first turn around the yard on our lawn mower as grass and weeds have been growing for a couple of weeks. It looks much prettier now! It’s been quite a while since I’ve had dirt and dust under my eyelids, in my nose, all in my very clean hair and every other place it gets when you cut grass and a lot of dirt! Can’t wait to have grass in the front yard. It was all dug up early in the construction process.
Looking forward to electricity being connected tomorrow, our electrician wrapping up his work and the air conditioner being connected and turned on!
Ya’ll come back now, ya’ hear!
