Twenty-one and four...........

 8:28 am - 5th Saturday - April 30th - Seal Rock, OR - 54° F, 82% humidity, wind - zero mph out of the north......partly cloudy skies today with a forecast high of 57° F.....possible rain by mid afternoon....we'll see.  

On this date in 2016 we were arriving at Lake Tahoe for our third summer....our first view of Lake Tahoe that year.......↴


After a day of demolition (Wednesday) it was back to the 'gravel pit' for moi.  I had two sites (4 and 21) upon which I had done some work over the past week, but was interrupted by the arrival of customers.  Both those sites were vacant Thursday, so I continued my work getting them level with the large gravel, finishing with small gravel over the entire site.  In all I worked three hours......

Site 4 is now finished....

.....and so is site 21

This picture gives you an idea of how much gravel it took to get site 21 level front to back, and side to side

.....I was home a tad after 1 pm after driving the Massey-Ferguson loader back up to the barn for the 'weekend'.  I added up my hours for the week, and was surprised to see I hit 17.....my biggest work week since we arrived back in September.  The weather is warmer in general, and I'm back to wearing t-shirts and shorts to work.  The day I don't have to wear a jacket to work will be a milestone.

I was finally able to deploy all of my solar yard lights Thursday, as they are now all working again.  For some reason after sitting in storage for months some of them have to sit in the sun for a few days before they begin to work again, but as of Thursday they are all working, and when I got up at 5 am for a bathroom run they were still out there twinkling.  I'll try to remember to take a picture of them tonight.

Friday we head over the the hill to Albany, OR to the local COSTCO  for TLE's annual optometrist appointment so I'm sure there will also be a Trader Joe's visit, and maybe a micro brewery thrown in for good measure.

Thanks for stopping by!
