MMM 341: Throwback

I’m running late this morning, and there are still a bunch of backlog images in the binders, so it’ll be the old format this week.  Laura sent me some good images that I didn’t have time to do any real research on, so those will be coming up in the near future when I’ve been a better steward of the images she sent me.

Greeting the sun.  I’d do this, but it’s been raining for 3 days.

MMM336: Laborious Day

Depending on the weather, I’ve got a ton to do today inside or out.  I’m either cleaning out gutters and trimming trees or emptying out boxes and helping the wife make the basement stairs more kid safe.

Had my first real car accident yesterday.  Guy pulled past a stop sign (he had stopped, then started again across the road I was driving on which had no stop sign.  I was going 45 or so (i.e. the limit) and managed to slow us down to about 20 before I clipped his right rear corner.  Superficial damage to the Venza, probably totaled his Malibu.  Nobody hurt, Possum barely noticed or looked up from her tablet, thank God, but I’m a little shaken and won’t look forward to driving for a while.

She’s all bundled up for autumn.

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.

MMM 330: Nobody died

We did a full 48 hours without mom this weekend, and it went as well as could be expected.  I was exhausted afterward and just barely made it out of bed this morning, though.  Should be a fun week on the job.

It took 45 minutes to get her hair to look right.  Just speculating.

MMM 330

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.

Teal?

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.

Eva doing a self-check.

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.

MMM 325: holy crap it’s June

Summer is almost here!  To do this Summer:

  1. Upgrade support beam on east-facing pole-barn door
  2. Build stalls in pole barn
  3. Add gutters to workshop and block shed
  4. Add sump pump and dehumidifier to workshop basement
  5. Build chicken coop

And if I get all that done, before it snows, I’ll call it a huge win.

Light and shadow.
