Can we beat the SNOW?

Jim takes a bit of a break and spends some time with Sally Sawmill today.

Playing in the MUD.

The panel starts coming together.

Got MUD?

The sun shows up to offer approval.

Solar Energy here we come!

More prep work.

and the work continues...

Almost ready for the big pour.

The concrete pump truck has arrived.

This is what some may call "another big boy's toy"...just sayin'

This thing moves around by remote control!  I am guessing he has a few remote control cars in his past.  :)

The pour is ON!

Jim is right there in the thick of things, of course.

21 holes to fill.

Stakes are removed and grooming done.  Now, we just let the concrete cure and then the panels are going up next week.

The solar energy project continues...

The drill truck arrived and got stuck.  :(

We love this Colden MUD, not.

So, Daisy the Dozer comes across the road to the rescue.

Daisy in action.

Of course, Jim wants rebar added to the holes.  Jim made 21 of these cages.   You got to love those structural engineers.  Ok, you don't but I have to.  LOL.  One of the workers putting them in place.

Daisy waiting to show off again.

And another hole...

 More preparation, to be continued.

Fall on the hill...

Daisy the Dozer helping Jim bringing some logs from the woods.

Jim doing what he loves.

Just a few of the piles he brought out of the woods this fall.

Sally the Sawmill has some work coming her way.

Loving the clothes line.

The colors are wonderful this season.

The woods have an abundance of "cow feathers" aka milk weeds.
