Only change I would make is the calorie count. It is a well known fact that recipes shared on GTTalk contain no calories.

LOL

Life is tough for most everyone, but the last couple have been pretty hard.  Life goes on whether it's tough or not, so we just do our best.  

  Got an extended sleep till almost 9am this morning.  Gonna head out in a while for more electrical supplies.  I brought Craig a grubbing hoe to dig the service line, but the hoe never got touched yesterday!  :rolling:  Seems it's handle doesn't fit his hands either!   :smilewink:

  Once the ceiling is in so that the floor will be free of all the metal, we could go ahead & use that 30' section of the shop while the 12' of high ceiling area is finished.  The remaining 12' end could be finished as time allowed.  I need to soon start on the corn planter which needs a lot of work before planting time.  I can use the torpedo heater for now.  I'm sure it'll be some time before we can move the waste oil furnace.  Getting the electrical work done inside is a big plus to getting to put the shop to use.  Craig is doing a great job!  :thumbs:

You been through more than your share of frustrations in my opinion. Glad you got some rest this morning! You need that too.

It's great of Craig to get this electric ran for you. One more thing off the list. Sounds like you have it closed in pretty good if the torpedo heater is keeping it comfortable. I saw a used oil heater on CL here. Think they wanted $600 for it.

Hi, BaumBaum! Looks toasty in there!

It was toasty for sure. Vary nice torpedo heater. Had it set for 52°, with longjohns, it was the perfict temp to work in. The only difficulty I had was not to stop and go through his museum of GTs.

I "think" I have all needed to finish most of the wiring. I "know" I have plenty to keep Craig busy tomorrow for as long as he can stand working.   Some wiring will have to wait, such as the line to the waste oil heater, once we're definite on it's new location, and the lights we'll likely hang from the high ceiling section.  I installed & wired the new receptacle for the welder, and got a couple things ready for tomorrow.  I got a plug end for the Century welder cord that matches the plug on my plasma cutter so only one receptacle will be needed.  Down at the old shop, we have the Century welder hard wired.  Now it will use a plug.

 Tomorrow I need to get the cattle trailer hooked to my truck and all the tires checked & inflated.  Tuesday I will be taking a load of cull cows to market.  Maybe later this week or next week I'll go buy some replacements.

I'm happy for you to at least use this space, even if it is not completely set up! You'll have room to get around and be warm at least!

Slept horribly last night with back and shoulders hurting and no better this morning. Not felt my best the last few days. Sure hope it improves. Lots to do today.

I'm not resting well either. I think it's the weather mostly for me. I'm tired of the cold gray wet winter. Maybe if we would have got a snow or 2, it would be better but this rain every day and it being in the low to mid 30s is really getting old. I hope you can rest some today and get to feeling better.
