I hope you all had a great weekend. Ours was so so. My wife got sick and is currently on an antibiotic. She caught it all very early and her and the baby will be just fine. She wasn’t feeling well at the end of the week and went to the walk in clinic in town. They told her that even though her Strep test came back negative, her throat still looked like Strep, so she hopped on some meds.
Friday, like I eluded to, we went to work on the cabin. We were going to work on the floor mainly, and I guess my dad and brother ran into an issue with it so we worked on the walls mostly. This first picture is my brother starting the second wall: (you can see the first one in the background.)
Here is a better picture of the first one. It was a very tight fit and when we got it up, I fastened it with screws, to the top and bottom.
Here is another quick shot of my dad and brother trying to get the second wall squared up. I ended up doing the rest of that wall myself. My brother and I put it up when I was done.
With the two walls framed they decided to at least put two sheets of flooring down. So we cut them to length and screwed them in.
We are going to have to cut a third piece and make it fit. We also have to add the walls around the rest of the build. If we want to get this thing done, we better hurry haha.
I want to say Saturday morning I went to the grand opening of Dunham’s. It is a sporting store like Dick’s, but on a smaller scale. They have a modest amount of outdoor gear and sports gear. Our local mall is undergoing a huge transformation. We went from a full mall to nothing, back to a full mall soon. This is the first real store to come in and more are to follow. Here is the donuts, coffee, and candy that they had for everyone.
My wife was home sick, trying to rest and get better. It was a cold day and not much got done. She was supposed to go to her baby brother’s first birthday party and baptism but wasn’t able to.
Sunday I had a softball scrimmage. It was more for the other team than us, but the practice never hurts. They are a new team and we have been playing together for over ten years. They were getting a feel for what position their players would play, and who would hit where in the order. We played about six innings, and let everyone bat around at the end. It was about 70 degrees and sunny so I got a little sunburn. Nothing like the first one of the year. Speaking of softball, our opening season tournament is the 6th-7th of May. May is going to go by lightning fast. Softball, baby, bachelor party, wedding, masons meetings/initiations! It will be a whirlwind.
Today has been pretty busy at work. Everyone waits until Monday to come forward with their issues haha. I have been dabbling in HTML and Ruby programming languages, but who knows how long that will last. Coding for me is hard, I don’t tend to think the way a programmer does. It never sticks. I always try, and I learn a lot. But I never can keep the information in my head. It is very frustrating.
Anyway, that’s where I’ll leave it today! I hope you all have a great start to your week. I’ll see you all back again tomorrow! 😀 😀
