his is a fabulous morning. It actually DID rain quite a bit last night, heavy shower this morning. This parched brown grass, yard, trees, desperately needed it. It squashed any fear of a fire. What was unsusual? IT’s been SO dry but temperatures cool, that I found time to actually prep for fall to the “T” the last couple of days before the wet arrived. Rain showers are now forecast the next week.
I got this done:
*Some wood moved into the garage awaiting use in a month or two.
*Began spreading some of the gravel just delivered down the driveway. This awaits getting spread onto the spot in back to be under the woodshed:
*bit more leveling on the woodshed dirt pile….awaiting shed building oct 4.
*appt for new oven Monday, Oct 1
*went to horse farm nearby, they loaded free Horse “M” (you know…) and spread that on garden….then, of course, washed out the truck….it’s really fairly composted, but you not be smelling lavender if you’re out there this morning when it’s wet:
*Used leaf-blower on roof getting rid of LOTS of fir needles piling up there since spring.
*Swept up and removed all the needles from around the house that came off roof.
*Cleaned out the chimney
*Cleaned out all the gutters all around the house (we NEVER get this done ahead of time)
*moved Ficus tree back indoors
*moved BBQ under the eaves
*moved some things to woodshed from garage
*cleaned up in the garage — organization a bit
*put away all watering tools
*hung ornamental window frame out by woodpile.
*mowed lawn where needed
*fried chicken for leftovers
*ran the dog!
HEY. That was a busy day, and the reward? raining last night!
