I drove north to Phoenix to volunteer on a project the company is doing.
Sunset west of Interstate 10.
Beneath the street.
There are a lot of pit structures and soil mining pits, the latter excavated to get lime-rich dirt to make plaster for floors. The house below has an entrance pointing toward you, with large posts on either side. A wall groove extends around the perimeter of the house, where posts and possibly reed mats would have been placed. A circular hearth is in the center of the floor.
The entrance is to the right.
I worked in two soil mining pits (AKA borrow pits). I found lots of pretty decorated pot sherds and pieces of shell jewelry.
The workers are friendly and we laugh at silly things.
He digs good trenches.
I have been growing my beard out for a long time, but it started getting annoying.
Two unused gas lines are being removed.
Under the house.
Puff and Joey got down in the crawl space when I wasn't looking and I had to go down and drag Puff out. He was super naughty.
Kitchen is being repainted the same colors.
Everything has to be done this week. It is crazy how much stuff I have to do.
