|Mowing the lawn at the farm - one last time|
|Jeanette is out standing (or should that read 'outstanding') in her field.|
|R-L Jeanette, Jamie, Justin, Deni, Brad (Courtney is barely seen behind Brad)|
|Drains and water lines were moved and sand was tamped down.|
|To achieve the building code specifications, a sizable amount of concrete had to be jack hammered before the plumber could complete the extensive amount of work required.|
|Jeff at the ready to work.|
|Tools were brought out from Deni's garage and I began to build a 12" deep crib to surround the 'back flow preventer' and cleanouts.|
|Completed cribbing for install before we mix and pour the cement.|
|Deni was able to mix three X 55 lb bags of cement in each batch.|
|At the very end our pouring and finishing.|
With lunch completed, we moved the wheelbarrow, mixer and tools back outdoors for cleaning. Once done, the rental cement mixer was returned to the rental facility nearby.
Jeanette drove back to the town of Two Hills early this Sunday morning to collect her mom and drive to an assisted living facility in St. Albert - near Edmonton - to visit with Jeanette's aunt Pansie. She is 92 years young. Following their visit, mom and daughter came by Deni and Courtney's home for dinner before driving mom back to her assisted living facility.
Deni and I spent the day together. We drove around our specific points of interest and followed that with a lovely lunch at a funky but really good restaurant near the University of Alberta. The restaurant is called the 'Sugar Bowl'. It was really good! To spend the day with Deni was wonderful. While he and I were enjoying our day together, Courtney was having a good sleep after working a 12 hour night shift in the trauma centre at the Royal Alexandra Hospital in Edmonton.
A busy time for us all but it was fun too.....even placing the cement was fun! A short dose of work it was.
Jeanette and I plan to leave early tomorrow morning (Monday) for the 12 hour drive back to our home in south Langley, BC. We have had an interesting mix of hard work and good fun.....and we feel a good sense of accomplishment.
More on our return trip in a day or two.
Thanks for dropping by.
