I’m glad to see you all made it back. My weekend didn’t all go to plan but it was still a great time. Friday was gong to be a lazy evening which turned out to be quite eventful. My brother text me and asked if I’d like to come over and watch a movie with him and two of his friends. I agreed since my wife had some work to catch up on. We ended up watching ’13 Hours’ it was all about Benghazi. It is a really well made movie, and the fact that it is a true story is equally disturbing and interesting. His baby was a little cranky so it was a bit stressful, but we all mode it out in one piece lol.
Saturday my brother and I went out to my camp. We had full intentions to tear it all down to put up a small cabin. I got there and started having second thoughts. I had already had a ton of man hours into this camp and it really wasn’t in bad shape. We decided against tearing it down and worked on adding to it and fixing it up. We brought the chainsaw for extra support. I said I wouldn’t but thinking about how many times I’ve been able to get out there it was a must. We cut down 4 small trees and cut them to length for the one wall. My brother took my hatchet and put a point on all of the ends to later be hammered into the ground. We are going to stagger them in a row and then fill them with horizontal logs and debris. I cleared out the floor and fire place to make it look nicer. We also cut down a larger tree in the front. This will be where my fire pit will be. I need to go back and establish that and burn out the roots of that tree. Here are a few pictures for ya.
You can see that I will be stacking fire wood between those two trees, and that stump you see is where the outdoor fire pit will be. We are thinking that we will need about 12 more little trees to get the wall posts done. Then a handful more to finish the walls.
Later on Saturday we all went out to dinner with my dad for his 58th birthday. His birthday wasn’t until the next day, but it was the only time he could get all three of his kids together. We went to a Chinese buffet in the area. Afterwards we went back home and had some ice cream cake.
Sunday I got a lot done around the house. My wife wasn’t feeling well so I made breakfast and lunch, did the dishes, and kept all the animals fed. We were planning to go out and see our new baby nephew but his parents were stressed and super tired so we didn’t. The baby also was low weight and ended up back in the hospital that day anyway. He should be ok with some help. Since we didn’t go out and do anything I got some game time in before heading to our company league basket ball game. We played from 6pm until 8pm. I am absolutely terrible at basket ball, and it really shows. The good news is that it is all in fun and it is a great way to get in some exercise.
Our new work hours are 8-4:30pm now that we turned the clocks back. I would have thought that today would drag on and on but it hasn’t. It is gone by really fast and I’m not sure why, but I like it haha. I have been working on a use for a company tablet, as well as helping a few employees with minor issues. The rest of the day will be smooth and I’ll be out of here in no time.
That is about it for today. Thank you for stopping by. Feel free to leave a comment and drop a like if you have enjoyed my post. I’ll see you all back here again tomorrow! 😀 😀
