This has been a very busy week and very progressive for me. First of all, I woke up about 2 am Tuesday morning and there was a light shining through the window. I got up to investigate and it turned out to be the moon of all things. I was excited, this is the first time I have seen it since Summer started. There were also stars out. I enjoy the night time.
While outside, I took a picture of my polebarn, Looks kind of cool at night.
After all the excitement, I went back to sleep, I had a busy day ahead of me. Woke up around 7:30am, had coffee and breakfast and went to work changing the cabin around again. Moved my TV and stuff again. Moved them back to the corner, it was too close to watch.
I am getting into the flower thing, it feels good to have some color and to smell them.
Afterwards, it was time to go outside and get down and dirty. Time to replace the center beam under the cabin. When I built the cabin, I put RR ties under there. So, I decided to replace them so, I could use them someplace else. As you can see, not much room to crawl under there and I had 4 of them to drag out, which wasn't so easy either. But, I did manage without any help.
I peeled a pole to put back under there. The pole was a whole lot easier to work with.
When that job was completed, I took the rest of the day off. Took a nap and watched some movies later on.
Wednesday, my neighbor showed up with his truck and trailer and we took a ride to pick up some free plywood from a trucking company.
These were the stacks of plywood they were giving away.
Loaded up and ready to go. I also got a bonus, they gave me a bunch of lumber.
Here are some pictures I took on the way back.
Finally, back at the cabin, my neighbor left the trailer at my place and I unloaded everything by myself.
Here is the free lumber I got and there are more attached to the plywood.
and of course, the plywood. They arn't perfect but, with some trimming there is enough to cover my polebarn and another project. We may go back for more.
Now, we are into Thursday, that was the big workday. I started building the new deck on my cabin and all from free recycled lumber.
It took me about 10 hours by myself for this project and it was a miserable 10 hours. It was extremely hot, humid and buggy. I put bug dope on and the sweat washed it off. The mosquitoes were out in force. But, it was well worth it to have a decent place to sit outside.
By the way, my tomatoe plants are coming along. The one plant is just now starting to get tomatoes and the other one is doing real well.

"PHEW" I am plumb tuckered out doing this post. I hope all of you enjoy this post. I have quite a few more projects coming up. Take care.
