|Monday they spent some time waiting for this truck to be ready|
to do the pour, on Wednesday all 3 trucks arrived on time.
|Monday afternoon a truck brought the pipes for the barn|
|They put them in the precept (wagon) so they can move|
them easily when it is time to install them
We were gone to Zaporosia at the time, Garry wanted to buy some bolts and other parts to fasten the pipes to the cement for the freestalls in the barn, since they would need them before today's cement pouring. Seems like he is running out of donated funds, there may not be enough to finish the next section to pour. So maybe the project is stalled for a while, Garry was hoping to order the freestalls that will attach to the pipes so the guys could weld them while we are gone the end of June. There is a mission conference in Hungary and then we will fly home to Canada for ten days for Seth's high school graduation, and Josh and Krissy's wedding.

The power had gone out at 9:30 in the morning, apparently a maintance thing, it was supposed to be back on at 5 pm, I found out at lunchtime from Garry. We had broderbrat (sandwiches) and the guys fired up the generator so the ladies could use the milking machines for the afternoon milking at one pm. Victor was out for the day, he had brought dessert. He also brought the rest of the fence pieces, so they painted fence in the afternoon. It looked like rain all day (and again Wednesday) but it never actually rained.
I had just picked a huge bag of spinach I planned to freeze around 11 am, figuring the electric would return soon. I ended up doing it between 10 pm and 12:37 am, after we got home and the power was back on. Just the thing to keep you up at night! There were bowls of water a pieces of chopped spinach all over the kitchen when I went to bed. I also finally got the load of laundry I put in at 9 am finished running through it's cycle around midnight.
Here are some other photos from the last couple days....

Our trip to Zaporosia on Tuesday- the on top of a Lada photo was taken in the city as we drove home, it was almost dusk. The chairs would wobble when he hit a bump or hole in the road.
