Concrete Work

Tom finally had the chance to do something for him here on the home front. We're pouring some concrete around the backside of the barn (now the kitties have to find someplace else to do their doo, it was a huge cat box for them).

With the nice pad out back, now I can park my car even closer to the house and have a nice wind protection.

It's still drying and Tom is putting a layer on top that's way smoother.

This is the biggest reconstruction we've done since.... well, I just can't remember!

The True Farmer in Me

First of all, I apologize for slacking with these posts, it's been forever, I know.

I had the opportunity to vacation in Hawaii with my siblings and just got back to the mainland.

The first day in Hawaii we drove to the Dole Plantation, and here is where the true farmer came out, I saw how pineapples grow!

I thought they were on trees! Not little yucca bushes! I was so perplexed, so I took tons of pictures! I think I was the only tourist there who really cared how pineapples are grown. I mean there's a crystal clear beach a mile away and I'm going through the pineapples rows, I've been bit by the farming bug pretty bad!
