Screentime Or Else!! πŸ˜‰ & A 3:00 A.M. Delivery Surprise πŸš›

There is always a certain look on Srey-Yuu's face when she's hunting me down for a screentime request, and today I managed to document it.

Rewind To 3:00 A.M. πŸš›

Β  Β  Β For several weeks we've been getting price estimates on deliveries of construction materials, like sand, bricks, concrete, split bamboo, and other things. Ultimately we've determined shopping 150km away in Pursat, the provincial capital, is cheaper, but not by much after the transportation costs are factored in. The depots and drivers both couldn't give accurate estimates on how much of any of the materials would fit into the trucks, and without knowing what kind of truck would be coming, neither did we.

Β  Β  Β Eventually we just rolled the dice and told a crew to fit as much sand as possible into whatever truck comes regardless of size, and fill the remaining empty space with bricks. We let the guys know they'd be climbing and descending a mountain pass, and to go easy on the sand for a safe first experimental trip. The crew took over 3 weeks for everything to line up, and they randomly arrived at 3am with little notice, and we just hoped that our $600 was going to be enough to pay for this.

     In the end the whole cost was $400 for the sand and bricks as well as a bit of cement and bamboo. We had assumed the worst-case scenario would be a $1,000 based on the largest possible truck arriving and roughly guessing how much materials we'd receive. Now that we know roughly how much this crew can haul we can better financially plan for future trips. 3am is a convenient time for delivery because that's usually when my work is done and I'm finally ready for bed 😝.

Turn The Lights On πŸ’‘

Β  Β  Β The crew finished things up about 5am, dozed off in some hammocks for an hour and hit the road about the same time as our daughters headed out for school, so needless to say it wasn't a night with anything resembling sleep. Well, at least it's exciting to see that we have the materials needed to finish most of the fence project. The fence will help so much in making visitors feel like this place is an oasis, and it will also allow us to choose what kind of behavior and actions happen within our land. Most exciting will be to no longer see strangers flashing their penises when they use our land for an unapproved urination stop πŸ€¦β€β™‚.

Fence Preparation Continues πŸͺ¨

Β  Β  Β There is still a lot of prep work to do for the fence, and I'm trying to split my time between earning enough to pay for it all while also pitching in to help. My brother-in-law have been hauling rocks up from the river to reinforce an area that is under constant water flow and erosion because of the higher property next to us. Wheelbarrow by wheelbarrow we have been slowing adding river rocks to make this area reach road level so that the fence will have a better chance at a long life.

Β  Β  Β And now we arrive at the image I used for the thumbnail. Srey-Yuu came to request some screentime to take photos and work on a post for her own @srey-yuu blog. She's been very consistent lately, and it's nice to see her building up her HIVE nest egg and also using it to buy a few things like her new ukulele.

Wow at the very young age she already knew how to handle her hive account. For sure she will improve in that because she has ever supportive parents.

I hope Hive is something she sticks with no matter what changes she goes through as she becomes and adult. She still has plenty to learn, but just being a teenager with blockchain knowledge is a big advantage in this world.

Yes you're right and I am proud of you her parents and to her who at the young age learns to be here.

It's hard to imagine it's completion, but it's bound to happen. For now we only have the funds to put up the posts, and hopefully by the time the posts are up we'll have to put something in between the posts so we can actually call it a fence.

She is a good daughter, and I am proud of how much she has learned about Hive in such a short time.

OMG, it's amazing that they delivered sand and bricks at 3am! That probably woke the whole village with the noise. 😳 Things are certainly different in Cambodia! πŸ˜‚

Well, this village has a habit of staying up at night to do things like illegal logging, gambling, and philandery, so it didn't cause much of a disturbance πŸ˜‰.

Congratulations on the delivery. 400 bucks with that amount of stuff, seems like a good deal considering you live in an inconvenient area.

For some reason, that BIL beside wheelbarrow painting pictures in my mind with absolutely fantastic background music

What a strange selection, this song is one of the few non-pop English songs that my family fell instantly in love with the first they heard it. Even my wife can karaoke this John Denver tune, and it's a song that works well considering where we live.
