Is it just me, or do I c a couple extra lights up there?

 

Yes, to prevent a dark area near the door.  They are wired to the switch for the last row of 3.  It won't be often we'll use over half the lights at one time.  On a sunny day with the doors open, we may not need any lights.

Milked this morning, then did just a little work in the new shop.  Not feeling so good, so napped after lunch.  Got my chores done this evening, then took the rims & weight hubs off the burnt Massey 175.  Oh, and I did mow the 3/4 mile of roadside this evening with the John Deere F935.

Sounds like you had another good day today. The shop is really looking good. Never can have enough light in a shop.

Glad you got the most important job checked off the list. Those naps are hard critters to get done!

Best I've felt for the last few days.  Got 9 cows trimmed, and none too soon.  One was getting pretty lame.  She should be feeling better real quick....likely does already.  Going to work on the shop ceiling in the morning, then my MRI on my neck at noon.  Wednesday carpal tunnel shock test, then Thursday an appointment with my primary Dr to go over my blood test results & get a new script for my blood thinner.  3 complete afternoons slaughtered.  Sure wish these Dr's could work together on scheduling!

I worked on the shop ceiling long enough to allow the rain to arrive, and I hadn't fed silage yet....so I got wet.  Oh well, I didn't melt.  Took a shower & may go back down to the shop for a bit.  Today I had the least pain while working in weeks.

Just finished the shop ceiling except for several screws yet. Josh can finish those while I'm gone to Dr tomorrow. Now we can start moving shop stuff down. First 14 hour day I've put in for a long time! Feels good, but tired.

Glad the ceiling is up! Bet you are sore. Now moving things in can cause soreness also! Take it easy and set a few things up and see how it looks. It's a lot easier to move things around if the shop isn't full.

Getting a jump start are you? Grab the Doc just as he zaps you! Or the Nurse!
