Friday, August 30, 2013

Hey guys,

Things have been hectic the last few weeks.

They seem to be settling down a bit now.

Tomorrow is the burial/ash ceremony at the

memorial sight for my Uncle.


My uncle passed at 67 recently and my younger

nephew (18) and I headed down to make a place to

sit and remember our passed loved ones.

A small memorial we made but the pics did not turn our since it was

too dark.



Preparing to mix the concrete.



My Mom's chickens would not get out of the way..

I almost ran over them eating bugs from the mowing

deck after I mowed the area to get back to the work

sight with my truck.



The sitting slab poured but not totally finished.







Oh the garage workout area is finished, but I forgot to vblog it ..

its ugly but works. I got my workout in this morning and feel

good today other then allergies acting up a bit.

My friends came over from another state and we had

a good time hiking n doing home school stuff.

    The memorial place will be really nice. I have one for my loved ones - a memorial garden where I planted some flowers from my mother's and grandmothers house, from my MIL's garden, and a stone be bought for my FIL.
