I asked if he needed my help and I whistled a phew when he said no.  I wasn't sure I had the strength to shovel that cement.

If you noticed Jim is wearing different clothes, he had to change clothes a few times.  No wonder I have so much laundry :)

Hey, I didn't just take pictures, I set all the bolts in the cement.  I know, it's a tough job but someone had to do it :)

Bolts

Not sure if you all noticed that Jim had on a black boot and a brown boot.  Well, there is a story behind this.  Jim had two sets of cement boots and when we moved here Jim stored his boots in one of the sheds, he folded them over hoping to keep the mice out.  When he went to get them for this job, he found that mice had made their home in two of the boots and ruined them.  Would you believe it, the mice ruined the right boot of the black pair and the left boot of the brown pair, leaving him with a pair of boots only they are each a different color...We had a good chuckle over this and of course I had to take a picture of them ;)

Black and brown

That's it for the floor, the Amish guys who made the logs and are putting it together will be here next week.

Now, I have a question for you all.

How is sauna pronounced?

1. sow-nuh

2. saw-nuh

I'll tell you the correct way tomorrow.

You all have a wonderful day today.
