We have been taking serious advantage of the beautiful weather we have been having. We've been burning trash and cleaning up things. We loaded up the truck with scrap metal and made a couple of trips over to Recycling center this week. Now you want to talk about a double bonus!! First off we get rid of all that
When we first moved out here I had hoped that we could use all those cinder blocks that were once the footings on the old house. Unfortunately, the fire that destroyed the house also destroyed the "integrity" of the cinder blocks. Most just crumble or break when they are moved. Never one to be deterred, Mars decided that he could still put them to some good use around here. He's been breaking some of them up into small chunks and using them for "fill" in some of the low spots around here. Living on the side of a hill, things sometimes tend to wash down the hill when it rains. Not a lot but enough to make some low areas. He's filled in a good sized hole in driveway. And some was used on the back side of the barn where the rains had washed a small "gully" the back length of it. He's also crushing some and making walkways to the trailer. It's all a work in progress but I can see it shaping up. One of those things that gets attention while hes plotting the next project.
This week he's also been working on the fencing we are putting up for the goat run. I'm not exactly sure what you would call it.... so I'm calling it a goat run! Using dead cedar trees from the property he's making corner posts. (H-Posts I think you call them) It won't be much longer now and the fencing itself will be going up. It will be a 100 x 175 foot fenced in area when its all done. So that's progressing right along too. I don't have a lot to do with all of that other than to be the "gofer" and the "holder" of things. Like the tape measure, tools, etc.
I've also been trying to get our food storage inventoried and rearranged. I've been making use of the underbelly storage on the RV for quite some time now. The thing about that is that its really deep and doesn't have much height to it. It makes it hard to get to things that are stored towards the back. So I've been trying to get things lined out so it's easier to see and to use what we have.
So that's pretty much what we have been up to all week. It might not be very exciting but it's forward progress, which is the right direction to be moving in.
