Fine tuning is an art. For some when a project is finished, it's finished. If there's a problem, well, just too bad because enough effort has been contributed. But my brain constantly is creating preferences, tweaking, adjusting for practicality and precision whenever possible.

The woodshed was such a lovely rush--design, build, and fill--that the result of the recent rain startled me. The wood was safe, finally. But when I went to admire the project for the fifth or sixth time during the rainy next few days, the mud, mud, mud on the shed and stored wood made a gritty, wet grab for my attention. This mud thing set my mind spinning to fine tune the design's best next step.

It turns out that the muddiest of the Things I get to do today is dig an out-sloping trench and fill it with gravel. Pretty simple solution that will dovetail with the rest of the plan to put in a few stepping stones as well. Let it rain.
