Small stuff that I’m grateful for today: Getting to watch this…

…while I get to do this.

I love my job and I love gas-powered tools! Thanks, Boss!

This looked like soooo much fun, but I’m glad I wasn’t responsible for the laundry afterward!

This was soooo much fun! And no kidding about that laundry!

What in the heck are they doing? It looks like quick sand, “scary”.

Hey Aunt J! They were planting marsh plants on a restoration project in Terrebonne Parish. Recently, a suction dredge was used to harvest sediment and that sediment was piped to rebuild a landbridge that had been washing away between Bay Raccourci and Lake Mechant. Projects like this help restore some of the natural protections against storms that we’ve lost in coastal Louisiana, help curb saltwater intrusion, and help maintain habitats for fish and wildlife.

For nearly two years hubby and I watched this restoration project progress. Until very recently, we had the first camp on Bayou Racourcci for many years. Racourcci Bay was nearly in our back yard. I thank all the wonderful volunteers who gave up their time to plant grass. The pictures look like fun but I know this was no small task. My hats off to all of you.

Nice earth drill. I just drained the tank of the Jiffy ice auger to run the weed wacker and Mantis tiller. Wanted to be down there this week but not in cards or salinity levels. Keep up the keeping up.
