We bought 35 bags of 2/3 cubic foot concrete, some more fittings for the plumbing and some wood for the footings..geez..but this will last us until we're long gone I'm thinking..
|Yesterday's work...footings being dug|
|35 bags of concrete loaded up at Lowes...|
|USA Parkway now joins Interstae 80 with Highway 50..|
|Industrial..means more jobs for NV..|
We came home down the new highway from Fernley. USA Parkway at exit 32 out of Reno. It's 19 miles to Highway 50 on that road. There's a lot of industrial stuff going on. Beautiful highway though. If we were coming home from Reno this would definitely be the way to go. Cuts off mileage and also not much traffic.
|Wild horses near the road!|
|Just a beautiful highway|
We got home about 1315 and I pulled stuff together for a salad for the two of us.
I folded laundry and got some food together for Ken for the weekend while I'm gone. He's a typical bachelor when I'm gone..one plate, one fork, open cans..and anything else that doesn't really amount to him cooking, even though he might cook a couple of chicken burgers. He's got yogurt, fruit, hard boiled eggs, toast, salad and then the burgers..don't think he'll starve. He might go out to breakfast with Joe (our neighbor) one day while I'm gone. Shouldn't worry as he's almost a 66 year old man..but I do...
Ken got the forms together for the outhouse..(so exciting) and we placed them. Then he added some more plumbing and was able to quit a little after 1700. Looks awesome.
|Ken got the wood ready to pour the footings.|
|This was pipe we had in Winnemucca hooked to the Komfort..|
now it's used for the outhouse..he cut what he needed...
|Plumbing is in..wrapped to keep concrete off the pipe when it goes through|
Mason and Seth said they'd like Grandma's breakfast while we're together so i will stop and pick up the ingredients on my way down..can't buy ice cream too early you know! :)
