Why is it that a holiday weekend invariably turns into anything but a holiday?
Not complaining, it's all good stuff, getting us into better shape for the winter, but it's hard work.
Apart from the usual Saturday stuff like grocery shopping for the week, and about six loads of laundry because we've been neglecting it for a while, we took advantage of the first real sunlight I've seen in nearly a month to winterize the trailer. Thankfully we've not had any hard frosts yet.
OK, the sun has made an occasional appearance in that time, but always when I've been at work.
Ali and the kids did a lot of sorting out stuff in the garage, including a load of things to take to the thrift shop, while I raked leaves and made good progress re-filling the compost heap. We have a large fenced-in bin that you could almost park a car in - maybe a Smart car, anyway. Every two or three years I shovel it all out to get at the yard or two of fine compost at the bottom, then all the rest gets shoveled back in again. It's a huge job, and I've been pecking away at it for the last three weekends, but I'm nearly there.
Then a few more small chores to drain the last of my flagging reserves of energy before heading to the shower.
Now, I think, my next actions will involve beer.
Cheers. How's your weekend going?
