    FarmerJamie - A new beginning

    It's a tiny little pool! You took downsizing to a whole new level, lol! Koi? Goldfish? Water garden/feature? Can't wait to see the finished project!

    Frustratedearthmother's Journaling Journey

    Still working on the bed. Made a lot of progress and am ready to set the twin bunk on top of the double bed base. Just can't do it alone. DS is coming by tomorrow to help. Pouring rain right now. I'll have to run outside and feed when it lets up some. Been letting the goats in the yard...

    It is such a great feeling to know that you're safe. Doesn't stop you from worrying about what's going on outside, but you deal with that when you open the door. I don't regret one cent of what we spent on it. I hope this is the storm before the calm, lol. It will be great to get this all...

    Slept until 9:45! Absolutely unheard of for me - but yesterday was horrible in every way it could be. The night before was sleepless - so last night was a gift! I need to fix a gate that's off it's hinges. I noticed it last night...don't even know when it happened because it's the gate into...

    Coffee's Ready, Come and Sit on the Porch

    Could you find someone to bale your extra pasture? Or, more animals in spring and sell by fall?

    DS got electricity back today - happy about that. Yay! Still a lot of places without. It's especially annoying when the traffic lights are out. P. I. A! DH had his pre-op visit yesterday. Got a call today that the anesthesiologist won't touch him. Flat out refuse. This is the same place...

    Me too!! My son, who lives about 10 minutes away still has no power. His generator bit the dust yesterday so he came and borrowed my extra generator. I have a big one that runs the whole house and a smaller one as back-up to the big one. (yes - I may go overboard occasionally) It won't...

    Forgot to report that we got power back! It's absolutely almost totally unbelievable that we got it back yesterday - a mere 7 hour outage. After Ike we waited almost 2 weeks. It was awful - and very expensive!

    Oops - it's www.safesheds.com @Finnie Because it's not "just" a shed. Some of the specs: Steel reinforced concrete storm shelter with 6" thick floor and 4" thick walls and roof (see how it's made); 8' x 10', weighing in at 24,000 lbs. (12 tons); Stucco exterior with your choice of 42 paint...

    My shed is not in the ground. Groundwater is too high in this area for underground shelters or basements. It's in the above pic - behind the car. This is what I have, and I'm 150% pleased with it. www.safeshed.com The first pictures I posted were from earlier this morning. Right after...

    Of course power went out right after I bragged on it. I braved the storm and ran in the house to check on things. So far, all is well. Got the generator going and am back in the shed. Going to hang out here until the worst is over and then get DH back in the house. Lotsa water and lotsa...

    Decided to spend the night in the storm shelter- glad we did. No idea what’s going on out there but according to the weather app we’re having sustained winds of 65-70mph and gusts in the vicinity of 90mph. We can’t hear much in here with the AC running, but I can hear the rain and occasional...

    Too late, lol. I had to get a couple of things this morning, so I filled it up. I'm set now - got gas, beer, and brownies (or at least the stuff to make them). Already had a nice shower with the first band that rolled through. Nothing worse than any other summer storm at this point, hope it...

    We're now under a hurricane warning. Weird - because Beryl isn't even a hurricane right now, lol. They expect it to reach Cat 1 size today. Weather folks are loving the excitement. Me - not so much. I have 1 empty gas can and 11 full ones. Trying to decide if that ONE 5 gallon can is all...
