Keep Your Fingers Crossed!

We have a big weekend planned at The Compound, but we need dry weather.  Keep your fingers crossed!

We're renting a "bobcat" to help finish burying the container, moving and smoothing out dirt in low lying areas, hauling wood to stack, clearing some old and new property, and filling in large pot holes on the drive in.

When I put it all in writing it doesn't seem like much, but I'm hoping we can get most or all of it done!  We've plans to use the machine as much as possible.  If someone is up or can stay up, it's going to be doing something!  It's our chance to get a bucket full of stuff done as quickly and easily as possible.  The hand digging and moving of dirt in this heat is getting the best of us.

If I get my wish, we'll have a dry weekend with a slight overcast. 


  1. I hope it stays dry so you all can get done what needs done! I will cross my fingers and send a up a couple prayers for a dry and produvtive weekend at the compound! The heat is bad here as well...we had 51% humidity yesterday with temps in the 90's and a heat index of 105! Today is more the of the same...I totally get the heat and humidity thing!

  2. I would be happy to send you some of our dryness. We need rain again now pretty bad.

  3. Crossing fingers for you! And, oh yes, that does sound like a lot of work.

  4. Izzy,

    I'm keeping my fingers crossed for great weather so you can accomplish everything on your list.

    Doing this all by hand gets to be too much especially with the heat.


We love to hear from you! Thanks for taking the time to stop by.
