Mighty Fine Pictures by Senor

Buen dia!
Last night Senor told me he would be waking me up at one-thirty to go out and see the eclipse. I did not think he would even wake himself up, but he did and we set up our chairs in the backyard.
It truly was mesmerizing and I am glad we were up to see it. He took the photos below and I am so impressed. I think the wavy out of focus ones are my favorites.

And yes, it really was that color!

A lot has been going on here in the daytime.
Below, Senor is busy working on his wood forms.
This form made the concrete piece below and it is one of several that will be placed on top of the columns they will soon be pouring. The bowl full of ladrillos made the center hole.

Below he has poured a square that will become the base of the column. It will have to continue to be built up and will look like the base in the second photo.

I have no idea what the longer form is for. I meant to ask him before he left for bridge today.
The rebar inside the form is the location of a half column and then, beyond that will be a row of long windows that will be above the kitchen sink.
That could not possibly be the beginning of a kitchen wall, could it? I really doubt it. I was told that is a long, long way off. So, I have no clue. What do you think it could be?

Somedays the picture gets a little clearer to me. In between the column on the right of this photo and where the new column is being formed, will be one of the french doors that leads out to the portal. I can really almost see it.

I am off on new old bike to the Post Office. Senor lost the postal box key, so he is yet, in trouble again. I will not tell the mail lady the key is missing. I will give her cookies! I know she will open the box! I think there will be Christmas cards in there and that will be good because I have had a few melt downs. I am not going to call them breakdowns...........yet. Just meltdowns that started when I did some online Christmas shopping for KD and Ian.

I thought about naming this post, senor is trouble again, because he is......over the key. But that is getting old with the amount of times lately that he has been in trouble.
So, we will go with the eclipse, since he did such a good job of getting us up to even see it and the pictures look mighty fine, too!
adios, linda lou

The eclipse was at a much more reasonable hour here, but we couldn't see it for freezing fog, so your pictures were brilliant for me.

The pillars should grow quite quickly, so we should see changes soon - but I assume Señor will get a few days off at Christmas.

But yes, lost keys - on the naughty step again Señor!

I know how you feel in the run up to Christmas. I am really happy to be back among my friends and family even though we have had so much snow and ice, and -15c temperatures - mind you Neil isn't so happy - no golf for 3 weeks! Guess it's me on the naughty step too!

Loved your pictures of the eclipse!

I wish I could see the construction of my house in Mexico as you are able to see yours. It looks as if Senor is doing a fine job from what I can tell from the pictures.

I will be looking forward to see how it all turns out!
