Dan has been working on the porch. I have tried to help; but, have been feeling rather useless of late. The Texas heat is getting to me; but, I am beginning to recognize the signs and go inside to cool off a bit. I think that I will gradually get acclimated to the heat. I am so used to doing my yard work chores in the early mornings or late evening when it is not so hot. We don't have that kind of luxury (to work only in the mornings or late evenings) when we are pushing to get the barn built sooner rather than later.
