Doing some last-minute concrete grooming on the porch.

This involves a mix that is basically portland cement with a little bit of sand. I also used an admix that's a lot like glue. It helps to bond the concrete tighter and adds strength.

So the stuff in the mixer, add some water to make a mixture that's... well, a lot like mud.

Doing just fine most of the way. Maybe a little light on the water, so floating it off I added water in a fine mist to the top surface.

Almost to the end, and it started setting up in the mixer. So I added water.

With the mixer pointed at about a 30-degree down angle.

Ever seen an elephant with diarrhea?

I had about 30 lbs. of gooey mortar mix come loose and flop on the deck, and splatter directly onto yours truly.

Turns out that the mixture sticks really well to skin.

I just got out of the shower.

You suffer for your porch, but the boo-boos are healing. I'm happy the weather held. Yay!
