Español! Hummingbirds! Pollen! 3.9.23

Tim A. Cummins @ 8:37 pm  

I got the receipt for the tree cutting today.

I may have to send in more documents for the exemption, although I’ve lived in the house more than a year, so I don’t think it’s necessary.

I got some inserts for my shoes. Although later today, I decided to get some shoes because they were on sale. I can still wear the old ones for another few weeks and having the inserts will make them more comfortable. I’ll use them for bike riding and yard work. They last about a year before the soles start to get slick and they become a slipping hazard for me.


Cloudy, much cooler and rained some.

Set up a doctor appointment for Jessi to have her ear looked at for possible surgery.


Got some ant poison in. I’ll set that out soon. It’s a gel. I wasn’t sure where the problem was. Had to check with K.

I bleached all my hummingbird feeders yesterday. Cleaned them out and made fresh solution for them and put them in their spots. Looking forward to my little friends coming back soon. Who knows? They may already be around. They usually fly around my window looking for the feeder. The same birds come back every year!

Also cleaned out my rain gauge.

Reset my windmills.

I walked 2.52 miles today while I studied Spanish.

Kathy went with me to the mission today. Always fun to have her around.

Rainy and cold so no students today. We had pretty much all the work done yesterday, so it wasn’t unexpected.

We had some difficulty setting up the account for the Social Security website. I got a question about it today. I’ll probably send them a letter. I need to talk to my tax people about why the SS shows a $0 for some years. That’s not right!

I find the rain water and the pollen interaction interesting and beautiful. Reminds me of cloud patterns.

Got a response from the North American Mission Board today. I hope to re-establish relationships with them to generate teams working with us during the Summer. We’ll see.

Push to learn.
