No propane tank for it now.  It was also the tank for the grain bins, and the line sprang a leak and it lost me 250 gallons of propane.  I had them come get the tank till I decide if I need one later.

The ozone layer thanks you, while your pocketbook does not, for the propane donation.

I like the way it's looking! 

Is there any insulation in those cinder block walls?

NO, and they can get frosty on the inside!  Just the ceiling has insulation.

I think I'm gonna take a vacation day today.  It's in the teens, soon about to hit 20* which is ok with heat, but my neck tells me to stay in and rest, so I'm gonna listen!

Guess you all figured I'd not be able to sit long. Couldn't stand it any longer, so after lunch I came to the shop and parlor. Not doing anything strenuous, just picking up and sweeping floors. But sweeping can hurt! One thing my surgeon stressed following my surgery was not to sweep or mop. I thought he was crazy. But being a bone head, I tried sweeping the shop soon after getting home. Mistake!
I also pumped a 55 gallon barrel of oil into my shop heater tank. It's 20* out with a couple inches of snow. Wind blew some into foot deep baby drifts.

I'd love to do something besides sit here. Maybe tomorrow!

Before my back surgery we had a building project going on at church. I really couldn't help and it was suggested that I should stay away. I thought the least I could do was sweep the floor but boy was I wrong. Made one pass and that was the end of that. Couldn't believe the pain that sweeping can cause so your doctor's advice is good from my experience. The other thing was not to go fast in a boat. That'll get your attention also.

Started pumping the 2nd barrel of oil, but time to come to the house, so I'll finish it tomorrow.

Cold and snow on the ground.

The future home of the Bush Hogs is cleaned out except for the coke machine, shelf, and 3 trash cans of garbage.

Can't wait to get Teresa's canning room and the tractor room completed, but it's gonna be a while.  Need to wait for warmer weather to scrub the walls, floors, and ceilings.  Then for sure warmer to paint the concrete floors.  Going to use epoxy garage floor paint from Lowes.  

And yes, gotta get a new piece of glass in that window.  The John Deere mower threw a rock through it.  Gotta keep my sheld down around there from now on.

Forgot to show the parlor after moving stuff in there to one side.  At least it's sort of organized.  Later when this room is finished, some of this will leave the parlor completely.

Sweeping is a big no no for me. I can use a push broom for a short while, but I use it wrong. I push with both hands straight out in front of me. A regular broom kills me.

OK Daniel you've pictured them twice now so I have to ask, what are you going to do with all the new in the box Briggs engines?
