I love Mondays
The work whistle blew at 8:30AM and off I went. Built and set up the forms for the south entrance - to fill in and transition where the walls meet the piers and footings. Started mixing by 9:30 and poured the two forms and filled 7 more re bar sections. Discovered today that the real trick is to get out and get to work before it gets hot and keep going as I didn't notice the heat while it rose slowly while working in it. Took a long break at noon. Got back tuit from 6PM to 8PM by building the forms for the east entrance, pulled the forms off the morning pour and set them up on the north entrance. Mixed up one last batch of concrete and poured it in.
Gourmet dinner of fresh cauliflower, Ranch Style Beans, and canned chicken with tortillas and cheese.
