First stab at this whole day in the life idea. Woke up and ate breakfast with the family. Just an ordinary morning. After breakfast went to the barn to find out if there was enough scrap 2x4s to finish up the root cellar! It was the first winter project I got to help out with. It was almost done this morning and I wanted to cross it off the to do list. All we had to do was put the vent pipe in and finish the two more shelves.
After the trip to Home Depot and the gas station for diesel I asked Dylan for some help.We needed to tip the shelf down to slide the 5 ft piece of PVC pipe in through the shelf. What we did not take in account was the space to move around in order to tip it. We played a game of tetris with fully finished shelves in order to get enough room. Not thinking it through we let Oreo stay in the room. He was all worked up with all the commotion.
The three of us took our turn getting stuck in between the shelves. Finally we got just enough room to tip it and TRY to slide the pipe in. This was a difficult task in itself. The combo between a short ceiling, a room just barely big enough for the shelves and our selves, and a pipe that needs to go in added up to a bit of frustration to say the least.
When Basil came down to give us our smoothies, a much appreciated winter treat, we had to tell him it wasn’t a good time. The door would not budge when he pushed being blocked by the shelves. Oreo (my dog) got squished a few times. Dylan and I both had to jump through the shelves because we trapped ourselves a bunch until we finally learned how to wiggle around. Putting the room back together I thought would be easy. We would just have to do it the way we moved it. We struggled with that part too. It was a comical time to say the least after we achieved our goal and let go of the frustration
Root Cellar gets scratched off the list. YAY!!
Dylan and Harmony, whichever of us have the time to sit down and write for a few minutes. : )
