Weekend Plans

I was told today, no work this weekend. I was excited that my whole weekend has now opened up with possibilities on what I could get done at the house. Then I heard of an 80% chance of rain for tomorrow. I just can't catch a break. Never less, I stopped buy the lumber store on the way home and grabbed some 2x4s just in case the weather misses us.
I was able to score not one but three extension ladders so I can reach the ridge board on the animal barn. Plus I have some help coming over in the morning so the girls will not have to risk the hanging off the ladder danger. The plan is to at least get the rafters on the tall part so I can work on the wings without needing any help.
I had my wind turbine sitting outside on the burn barrel ready for the second coat of paint and did not think the wind could get high enough to do any damage where it was sitting, wrong. The wife called to tell me it sounded like a plan was crashing in the back yard. It was dark when I got home but I did see pieces scattered. I will check it out more in the morning. Darn the luck.
On the other hand, Grit Magazine contacted me today to write for their blog. I am really excited about it and can't wait to start. You can check it out at
