It isn’t very pretty, is it?
This is what we have been working on all week, each morning before sunrise, every night after sundown, in single digit temperatures on a few occasions.
Two 1000 foot long trenches along the driveway, each 4 feet deep were completed for water and power lines.
Our legs hurt. Our backs hurt. And perhaps our heads hurt too, I say with a sense of humor!
Someone was watching over us today as we finally got the electric connected to the meter box on what will be the new soap shop. The temperature broke over 30 degrees today, which helped us bend and pull the heavy wiring. I stood inside the shop on a 10′ ladder, my husband stood outside on another ladder, as we pushed and pulled. We got it done! The power company can now energize us at any time.
We definitely have been hard at work. It is a very busy season for Annie’s Goat Hill, my husband’s business, and with the preparations at the soon (to be) new farm. It is all good!
