|On our way home..gotta love the traffic!|
We headed home and got there in time for me to make a quick salad and Ken heated up his ham hock and beans. After lunch he headed outside. I told him to call me when he needed help. I was in the kitchen making guacamole, spanish rice and coleslaw to go with the enchiladas for dinner.
After a bit I went outside because I figured he needed help by now..Nope, he did it himself, one armed! Because he has movement in his right arm now, he's able to gauge how much he can use it and he mixed and poured the posts with his left hand and the hoe he uses to mix it in the wheelbarrow. I was actually able to unload the 2x6x8's boards we bought and laid them flat out back while he waited a day or so for the concrete to dry. Eventually he cleaned up and came inside for an indoor happy hour. The weather went between cold, windy, sun, raindrops crazy!
|Post hole with concrete..he poured!|
|The two posts he poured..the 2x6x8 boards will go horizontally|
about 6 high..as we use the wood he'll pull a board to make
it easier to get to..once it's totally finished will make more
We had our delicious dinner, we were both hungry so no pics..but trust me yummy!
This morning (Wed) I was awake about 0400 with no hope of going back to sleep after a night of busy dreams. At about 0450 Ken woke and said let's wait til 0530 to get up. He knew that I wasn't going back to sleep so I turned the heater and coffee pot on. Set up shelving room for our computer time and got him up.
We did our usual thing and then I mopped the kitchen floor (even though Dan never touched the floor for measurement haha). We had an early lunch about 1200 since Dan was coming at 1300. Dishes cleaned and then we waited. It was a quick visit and now we wait to find what it will cost. He's just the measurer. They have to order the floor but hopefully in the next few weeks after we get back from CA. Ken left for another grueling physical therapy session. 2 more next week and then he gets a week break as we'll be in CA.
While he was gone made some flourless 3 ingredient cookies for my coffee snack. Tomorrow we've decided to take a trip to Gardnerville and MInden to pick up some things along with prescriptions. It's getting close to the Memorial Day weekend so don't want to be in stores then for sure!
Last night, (Tuesday) Golden Sierra High School hosted their annual Scholarship Night. Our grandson Seth was invited to attend to receive a declaration for his commitment to the United States Marine Corps presented by the Marine Corp Recruiter. Christina posted some pictures and a video. Very proud grandparents here! Couldn't get video to post..but will keep trying!!

The awards ceremony was about two hours long
with his being near the last..but great photo!

Our oldest grandson, Adam and a friend decided to take a day trip to Yosemite National Park. Originally he was spending a few days camping, but thinking the SNOW made him rethink that! Here's a few pics he sent last night. He said he took some of the best pictures in his life there and he'll send some of those later. Love the gypsy in that kid!
