Pouring Cement and a Winner!

Talk about exhausted...yesterday we went to help my dad pour cement for a new fence line.
The city were he lives came in and put in a new sidewalk.  Because he owns water shares he had to put in a new culvert and headway for the water to irrigate his yard and garden.  This meant putting up a new fence.  It has been allot of work for him.
So a few of my family members, including my husband and myself, and a few neighbors helped him pour about 5 yards of cement for this fence.
Many hands do make light work but it was still a hard job.
No sooner do we get it poured and covered when the monsoon rains came belting down.
It rained off and on all night. 
It is either all or nothing in the desert!
I had my daughter pull a name out of the hat and I am a bit late in posting this but the winner of the Scarecrow magnet is Felicia of
Congratulations and I will get in contact with you for your address.
