Sunday Work Day

On Sunday, Bob came by to set up two new floor joists. The prior joists had been headered multiple times, and not really doing much in terms of support. So he ended up removing the old boards, and replacing them.

First Family Dinner

Julie was kind enough to bring over some home made food for us, which we re-heated in our microwave for dinner. She’d been working on prepping food for us the past day or so, and it was absolutely delicious.
