A Penny and Some Sugar

The concrete dried over this wonderful spring weekend and this is what it looked like as of last night.  I’ve got to get out there tomorrow with a penny and some sugar.  My friend Jeff told me that it’s Jewish tradition to put a penny and some sugar in the walls for sweet times and wealth.  We’re not Jewish, but who’s going to turn down an opportunity for extra happiness and wealth!


I’m so thankful that it did not rain yesterday as it was supposed to.  This portion of the project has been the part that really hinges on the weather.  Thankfully Mother Nature is on our side and we’ve had a nice, dry spell.


They were busy today.  Bye bye big hole in the ground – hello foundation forms.  You are a welcome sight to see!



I am glad that we are not going to have to look at that gaping hole any longer.





January and February were really tough getting adjusted to our new place.  We’ve been so glad to stay amongst our friends and neighbors, and now being able to watch these changes daily is pretty darn cool.


I am doing a happy dance right now!  Things are moving along so quickly.


Our good buddy Roscoe is keeping guard for us while we are away.  We will have to give that dog a year’s supply of bones for all of the ruckus he’s had to endure with this project!
