Garage progress


 Walls being built today. Mark is working alone. He also sawed lines through the concrete so that when it inevitably cracks, those cracks are controlled/guided to those cuts.

We finally fixed the cracks in the bathroom ceiling and gave it a fresh coat of paint.

Cement poured




 Cement truck arrived at 7:30 and we had driveway poured by 8. Much more time getting it all smooth and ready for building but a huge step forward. Neighbour Dave G was awoken and annoyed but got over it. Tom came over and chatted with Mike for a while as they have similar firefighting backgrounds and Tom couldn't start his painting job yet as it was too cold (went below zero last night). William spent day in painting studio.

Garage: old pad torn up



 First thing this morning the crew arrived and tore up the old pad from the driveway (plus part of the sidewalk that I never got to all those years ago), then put in the form for the cement which arrives tomorrow.

Bigfoot cat

 Dropped off baking pan with Amy and borrowed some cameras and met a cat she is fostering: "bigfoot" who just had a litter of kittens. 

Yesterday I painted a Barbie camera with a Barbie (or hier 1966 sister Skipper).

Dad and errands

 

Ran a bunch or errands today, mostly looking for used dvds of war movies to supplement my course. Visited dad for a while. He seemed tired but smiled a lot and seemed in good humour. We didn't get up or walk around or anything. It looks like he ate lunch in his room, but there were only tiny scraps of bread crust remaining, so he must have been hungry.
