It's FUN MONDAY again! And this week's hostess is Beckie, who said (in part):
"I want to know what your favorite treat is....It can be anything, popcorn, peanuts, ice cream or chips, maybe you have more than one favorite - that is ok, just show us your favorite(s) and tell us why you like it so much. C’mon, what gets you all juiced up?"
Well, I love ALL sorts of treats - and food is my friend. But lately, the "treat" that gets me "all juiced up" is this:Now don't go thinking I'm a lush. I KNOW I posted a drink recipe for one Fun Monday assignment - but this stuff is my latest libation, of ALL food and drink. Ever seen the commercials featuring the Jon Bon Jovi look-a-like bartender and this chick?There really IS a reason she is licking that cube. This stuff is THAT good. I usually mix it with a little flavored water (Propel, if you must know)...but sometimes I like it on the rocks. Call me what you will.
Now for a house update - just can't post without one! Friday, I actually saw the head contractor, Jackie Ryan, do some very physical work. Here he is, cutting wood for the stairs:Then, the whole crew had to take some time and figure out how to get our large steel beam up into the top of the garage to support the bonus room:The beam is on its way up, but in the process, it almost flipped over! Here comes Jackie, quick with a board, to support that sucker until it is upright again:Now, it is perfectly in place, waiting for floor joists. The next adventure of the day was to pour the concrete piers for the deck bracings. Jackie's crew could do this themselves, with a few more baseball-type signs for the truck driver:Oh, and remember that "storage space" under the house? I found out who needed to use it:Sneaky dudes!
Now go check out the other Fun Monday partipants! Our next episode in home-building will hopefully feature our 8' x 76' deck!
