The ramp I like best has an asphalt roofing shingle on it. I still have to build a real ladder for the EEs because only Quinta will use the plain board I'm using now. Should have done it today but it will run me out of 2X2s and I'm thinking very seriously about how much it's actually necessary.
I'm having my usual June sleeping problems (it gets dark too late! it gets light too early!) and have gotten to the running into walls stage of sleep deprivation. I did manage to get a load of jeans washed and hung out, feed everything that needed fed, and put the sheep to work on the yard, but it's a good thing there's leftovers for dinner!
