Temperature fluctuations

Friday it was a warm day

warm enough to be in a T-shirt

a good day to clean up some garden produce

Then the clouds rolled in, this is one side of the house

and this is the other side

a deep blue sky

a scary looking storm cloud

but we only got a violent driving rain

Timely Work

On Saturday Daryl put in the pipes for the 
central vacuum for the insulation was going in

Harold came because he'd seen that the bricks and 
stones were delivered and 
"these guys need water"

I'm impressed with how well the trades work together
