sinkholes & backhoes

You may remember when this happened.  All summer, we've searched for the right person to fill in our old cistern and replace a lot of cracking concrete.  Yep, now it looks like this.  Yesterday while the guys were digging, they found an old well that used to run by a windmill.  Pretty cool from a history standpoint.  Not so cool when it's creating a giant sinkhole under your driveway.

I'm pretty sure that I can see beauty beyond this...

The beauty is...
it's not Thanksgiving or Christmas and 35 of your closest friends and relatives are due any minute!

Don't fret, it'll be over soon. It's all a part of living in the country. Ahhh, the unexpected surprises!

Hang in there....this too shall pass. I can sympathize -- disarray makes me nervous and twitchy.

And I *met* a friend of yours from Gooseberry Patch -- the lovely Jennifer. Small world.
