It's not abstract

There's something about working till 6:00 or 6:30 every day that makes doing hard manual labor in the evening afterwards seem pretty unappealing.

Which is my way of saying that I didn't get a damn thing done on the mudroom this week

Concrete form

What I thought was just a crack in the foundation was revealed (after two applications of stripper) to be the line where the foundation becomes no foundation at all! That bottom row of what I though were concrete blocks was just a skim-coat of stucco over bare earth.

So I pried it off and excavated a couple of buckets of mud from under the actual foundation. The board is the concrete form I cut last night out of an old shelf.

I'm drinking coffee this morning and trying to prepare myself mentally to go back down there and figure out how to mix and pour concrete into the hole.

Oh--note the lovely pea-green painting I managed to finish last weekend.
