Staying at it

2/08/07 - 5th Day - After Breakfast. Yesterday the fellas worked some more on the pig fence, and finished the concrete skirting around the entrance to the root cellar. I worked by myself on Josie's cabin, finishing the rafters and the framing in the gables of the roof. The temperature was supposed to be about 72 but it soared to about 80 degrees by mid afternoon. It was a beautiful day, and we're always glad to get those in the winter, but it was quite hot for awhile. I had to go down to the root cellar at one time to cool off.

Today the fellas will be working with Logan again, getting the concrete footers poured for his house. It is also laundry day here at the ranch, so there will be a ton of other stuff going on. Maybe I will have a few minutes to hide in here and write something? Doubtful, but I am full of hope. I am supposed to go to Brownwood today, which is never an exciting prospect. Although Brownwood is only 20-some thousand people, it has become the "big city" to us, and we try to avoid it if at all possible. But there is a Home Depot in Brownwood, and they do carry some things that are not available in Coleman. Coleman has wrapped wire fencing - a 330 foot role for $138. Tractor Supply in Brownwood has the same roll of fencing for $107. I do not have a plethora of $30 dollarses, so I will be going to Brownwood.

They are now saying mid 50's for the rest of the week and weekend. Not bad... seasonal. I think spring is in the air and on our minds here.
