sunny work day

226/366 - the men - mixing and pouring concrete in the hot sun

I missed that lovely day of sabbath rest I posted about.  Everything came together so that yesterday, in all its 90+ degrees wonderfulness, was the have-to day to pour concrete for our deck remodel.  (Oh, did I tell you about the dry rot and the unexpected emergency deck repair?  Good times.)  See those bags of concrete in the truck?  60 pounds, folks - and there were a lot of them to haul up and out and lift into that mixer.  Ice packs and ibuprofen today and much thankfulness that I don't have to do that again soon.   Also thankfulness for the full time laborers out there who do this kind of thing all week long.  You have my respect.
