After that fun, we built a timber-lined bed of pebbles for the new generator to sit on.
Then we pushed all the dirt back into all of the trenches we dug last week.
Then at 4 p.m., we quit for the day -- and felt like we didn't get enough done. We've never been daunted by house projects before, but consider us daunted. Overwhelmed. Exhausted.
We cracked open two beers and built a bonfire out front with flames leaping 4 feet high. We sat still for about 10 minutes before we started again -- picking up sticks and branches and throwing them on the fire.
Some bright news: 60s tomorrow and most of the coming week. We'll be back in the zone.
