Low of 46 - High of 93. Not sure which feels better....the end of the day after a job well done - or the morning after. A good nights rest after a long day is the icing on the cake, I reckon. Lately I have been waking up just about the time the sun hits my curtains on the east side. Best alarm clock ever invented.
Stripped the forms off yesterdays pour and all was well. Not perfectly beautiful but should withstand the test of time. One thing folks don't seem to do out here is water down the concrete a couple of times a day after it's been poured. I make a point of doing it as nothing is better for a good hard cure than a little drink a couple of times a day for about a week.
Wasn't quite ready for another long dirty/sweaty day in the sun so I headed down to Study Butte to do 2 loads of much needed laundry and fetch 125 gallons of water for my drinkin' tank. The clothes dried on my solar dryer in about a half hour. Nothing like an interesting photo to top off a rather mundane day.
