MMM 333: Summer wanes

It’s still pretty darned hot here, but the nights are getting cooler.  Make the most of what remains if you’re due for snow in a few months.

She looks good in snow.

MMM 332: dismantled apple tree

About 2/3rds of it is onto the burn pile already, with some of the leafy bits still on a tarp in the front yard waiting to be hauled out back.  Couldn’t put a ton of time into it yesterday without getting pretty wiped out, I cut it down and then hauled for about 2 hours total.  90+ degrees both days I worked on it, and I managed to sunburn my back when I was hauling.

Ugh, the Smith machine.

July rolls on with intermittent heat and thunderstorms.  I just got locked out of my electricity website and now I have to call someone, so that’s exciting.

BBF – Out On A Limb

Ahh-ite, line uptime to get the weekend kickin’. Pupster took a hike is away smokin’ dope and head bangin’ with his buddies on the left coast working hard. Handing the keys to an unstable person is probably a sign of stress. We may need to put up the H2 emergency signal for the West Coast Cabal to go bail help him out.

Clean Sheet Night!

Clean sheet night, one of the small pleasures in life.

Mrs. jam2 recently splurged on new sheets. She went on about thread count an shstuff I  usually don’t pay much attention to, but I must say they are comfortable.

Mare got this tip from Carin, who got it from MJ, who got from where ev :

While her folding tip may need some work, her diet tip is legit.

MMM 329: hot and dry, or not

Blazing hot all weekend, so I didn’t get as much done outdoors as I’d have liked.  Got some trees trimmed along the western fence line just as it was starting to rain, but I didn’t get around to hauling them to the burn pile (which is already too large) on Sunday.  Did get a few more things moved out of the sun room, which we’re hoping to have at least presentable by Saturday when we celebrate Possum’s 3rd bday with the family.  Plenty to get ready by then.  At least the lawn is barely growing.

MMM328: heat wave again

Been in the low to mid 90s for about a week, hot enough that I’m afraid to run the lawnmower and haven’t even wanted to go outside to do anything, even though it’s been sunny.  Did about 5 hours in the lake swimming with the family on Saturday, and that about wrecked me for Sunday.  Did manage to cut down a small cherry tree on Friday that was way too close to the house.  Debating whether the apple tree needs the same treatment.  What kind of moron puts an apple tree 5′ from a foundation wall?

Had to clean up my cat’s pet ants this morning, so now I’m itchy and I feel them crawling all over me.

MMM 326: heat wave

It was 95F here yesterday, so instead of yard work I cleared some of the rubble pile in the basement of the shop.  I can only do so much at once because it appears to be a lot of soil, and that’s quite heavy in my trash bin.  Would that it were only soil, because then I could just put it out in the yard somewhere, but there’s insulation, bits of metal, and even some broken glass in it.  I still have no idea how it got there.  Best I can figure is that it’s mostly potting soil from when this place was a gladiola farm; maybe they were starting seeds or storing pots and potting soil down there.

She’s got cable.
