Sometimes, I rather envy folks who have families who will say, "Hey, I'll be over this afternoon to help you with ___________". Yeah, not happening. This is going to take awhile.
Rain coming in overnight tonight. I worry about the rock wall side not having any concrete gutter but it wasn't an issue with the other rains, so maybe it will be fine. I did scrape out the little ditch back there. If it holds and the rest of our work does, too, we will put plastic on the ground inside the barn and keep that incessant moisture from wicking up through the paver base; all that stuff from when it got soaked twice is still making its presence known, though I can feel it drying out day by day as I pick that stuff up and squeeze it in my palm. Now, it doesn't just clump together, but seems much, much drier. Yet, it would take months for it to completely dry out, so if no water intrusion is present after this rain, plastic is going down and maybe we won't that condensation on all the windows and steel beams, etc. Fans are running in there 24/7, hanging on ropes from the rafters, swinging around. We'll get the back gutter area when we can manage to do it. DH is hurting a lot lately and though I could do some of that by myself, it sure isn't fun to do that stuff alone. I have to buy plastic now. The black stuff has punctures, though we'll use it for the first layer. I cannot find the remainder of the roll of clear 6 mil we had lying around.
I just found out that one of my D'Anver hens is dying. I have no idea why, really, though she's never really been right, has only laid for a year of her four years. Wrong Way Lucy is on her way out, sadly.
