With spring in the air, I’m excited to get working outdoors at the Lighthouse property. We’d like to level out our backyard, clean it up and prepare it for a small kids park with a half-pipe! I’m beginning to put this together for a Kickstarter project to raise awareness and funds – but first thought a nice pretty flat area would help folks catch the vision. Step 1 – find a bulldozer.
It takes a long time to find stuff in Ukraine. Whether it’s a small piece to a broken dishwasher, or a part for your car, you need determination, patience, connections, and a lot of time! This isn’t something to be explained really, it must be experienced.
I’ve come to embrace the hunt. I think it happened somewhere around year 2 of the Cafe project. There are so many things you simply can’t get here, particularly for business so you learn to live with active lists and a watchful eye everywhere you go.
We found there were 4 in our town, however 2 were broken, one overwhelmingly stuck in mud, and the other busy for at least 2 weeks but we’d be responsible for finding a truck to deliver it and way to unload it.
We’ll keep you posted. We’re now looking in the next town over. I also need to speak with the Mayor about this as the moment a tractor enters our property I’m sure the rumor mill will start swirling in our small town!
will look forward to your future post on the project, I’m sure it will be very entertaining!
Looks like another good project is getting underway! I had to get on today and thank you for the wonderful video you sent us to show to Crossroads yesterday! It was so well done, informative and encouraging! Love the ending with the retakes! The saw coming on while Deb was speaking was funny! All of us were very engaged watching it. I know it takes a lot of effort to stay in touch and want you to know we appreciate it. Blessings on the family and the work there!
