Log! Yardwork! Housework! Podcast! 9.11.21

Tim A. Cummins @ 7:55 pm  

I’m still getting all my stuff accustomed to the new car I’m driving. Cables are in integral part of that! I had some that worked, but now I want things to fit properly.

When I painted Jesse’s room, the cable for internet came loose. I put it back where it belonged this morning, above my Hello, Kitty piñata.


Lovely, cool day!


I decided to do yard work since it was so cool this morning. I always start with the hardest job: cutting up that big, heavy log that fell a couple of days ago.

I used my portable chain saw to cut the log. It was really hard. It was ME powered.

My Gorilla Cart is SO useful!

The second cut I made with my mitre saw. It was tough.

I hauled out the branch piece first. I put all the wood in my recycling pit.

Then the heavy log which I balanced on my cart and wheeled up the hill.

Gathered up several loads of branches.

Raked and swept the area in front of my back door.

Watered my outdoor plants.

Cleaned and refilled my hummingbird feeders. I expect them to be flying South soon. Some have already left.

Even with the cool air, it was a sweaty job!

Used yarn to tie up some plants closer to the tree trunk.

Vacuumed the house.

I usually clean all the pieces every time I use it. Makes it work SO much better.

Blew off the driveway and deck.

Watered the plants on the deck. Then rinsed the deck off. I used a vivid filter, it’s not really this red in real life!

Scrubbed the glass doors.

Gassed up my car, cleaned the windshield and checked the levels.

Went out for Chinese food with Kathy for lunch. Delicious!

Came home to rest and play Borderlands 3.

After resting, I went to Stone Mountain to record an episode of Verbal Surgery called, “Now Time.”

Listened to Harry on the way home.

Full day!
