Here's hoping my good karma doesn't get used up

Today's event of note...getting a call from our architect asking if there was any way I could pick up an 11' long steel I beam and bring it out to our build site. I had to think for a minute about whether it was April 1st and he was kidding. Coincidentally, I was only about a mile from the steel supplier AND in the truck instead of on my motorcycle since the weather was still winterlike this morning, so it was no problem. Definitely not on my list of typical afternoon activities, however. I figured he meant just some little (but long) beam, but no:

A very big beam. Yay for a long bed truck.

Highlight of my day:
Chowing down on an asparagus and brie on baguette sandwich and a good-but-not-as-good-as-Black-Dog-Cafe molasses cookie for lunch. I really, really did intend to take a picture because the sandwich was lovely, but I just didn't manage.

Non-food highlight of my day:
Seeing our upper level walls stacked and ready for the concrete pour tomorrow:

It looks like a whole house now. I was really quite overwhelmed seeing it for the first time. And I'm sure our neighbors are rather underwhelmed given the fact that there is now a house where their view once was. On the up side, our view is great :)

I'll apologize in advance for being a slogger. Tomorrows pour marks the start of what promises to be a very busy next few months, with very little knitting and a whole lot of take-out. Hopefully my forthcoming adventures in a new studio (WHOOHOO!!) and kitchen (double WHOOHOO!) will more than make up for it.

It's looking pretty sweet.
