I'm feeling very self-sufficient and capable these days. Of course, you know some calamity will now smack me upside the head just for saying that.
Today I went from out digging the waterfall hole-to-hell to cooking up a fancy blueberry-nectarine crumble to buying macho things at Home Depot like concrete and caulking guns. Now I'm going to knit a little. A true Oregon suburban homesteader! Even though I don't raise my own chickens like my blogbuds Amber and Kathi [and what's with chickens and blogging, anyway?]
Here's an update on my water feature follies:
This doesn't include the most important items like the pump, the pump filter and the hose, which I have to buy at a landscaping supply place on Monday.
Here's the hole, ready to be covered with underlayment (old carpet) and the incredibly expensive and heavy liner.
Every step in the process raises another unforeseen problem to be solved. One step forward, two steps back. I really want to finish this, though if I turn on the water and the whole thing craps out, I may throw in the towel and hire somebody.
What's your nemesis project? Did you give up or persevere?
