I’ve been reading my blogs in the mornings before I head to the jobsite and I get to see all the projects you all are working on out there…all the pretty quilt blocks, matching up points, cutting into fresh, pretty fabrics, and I have to admit I’m engulfed in jealousy! Don’t get me wrong – I’m still maintaining a good attitude about having to work outside in the cold, with a raw face, chapped lips, bruised and cracking fingertips….seriously, I determined that one special gift I could give my husband this year would be the gift of my willing mind and spirit on this job, no matter how much I dread some of it. We’ve actually been having a good time with the camaraderie and fellowship, calling each other by our Mexican names and such. Everyone is family and it’s just another chance to get to know each other a little better while working together. I’ll have to introduce you to everyone another time.
Anyway, my week has been like this so far.
Wednesday and Thursday I was on saw duty, or as my husband calls the job “saw man”. There was sparse saw work on Wednesday and I sat around most of the day, freezing.
frost-covered boards - first thing in the morning!
My first task of the day was to get all these boards from here:
Up onto the sawhorses:
These boards are 2” thick by 10” wide and 16 feet long!!! Each one must weigh at least 30 pounds.
No problem...I just needed to pretend I was on "Biggest Loser" and this was my funky challenge for immunity, in addition to a great way to burn some calories!
Guess what? I did it all by myself!!!! I am WOMAN!!! ha ha
It was nice to have furry company during the week....Buddy was there and it looks like he found some more jerky.
