Today was ok. Not too busy. The boss is still out of town so I can wear jeans and the annoying coworker is on vacation for the next 2 weeks so I don't have to listen to a critique of my every action.
No more rain yet. It's like the clouds are just there to decorate the sky. I noticed that another neighbor is having a well dug. I know that group of houses was on a 5 person well share. I have heard that wells around here can only manage 3 people at once. They must have gotten tired of running out of water. I should find out how much a well costs these days. 3 years ago it cost $35k. Maybe it's gone down in price. I can always hope.
I have been trying to think of fencing alternatives since I found out that a block wall of the size that I want costs $40k and up. That's half the price of a guest house. I thought about a rock wall since I have a lot of rocks but most of my rocks are small and concrete is expensive. The same thing with using soda cans or dog food cans, mortar/cement is expensive. I could also make my own adobe blocks or make a sandbag wall. All are possibilities. But then I saw that the used building supply store has 8' long x 6' high used wood fence panels for only $10 a piece. That would certainly be cheaper than my other ideas. I would still have to buy corner posts and concrete but if I scale down my plans, I think this is doable. I have a few more details to work out like will they fit in my truck and can I manage a panel by myself. I think I will have to ask my neighbor for help.
Anyway, I am just brainstorming. I don't have the money to start any new projects yet. But when I do get some money I will be ready to go.
