Enjoying the last few hours of summer…

Mowing

Well, only a few more hours and summer will be no more…

So, I am trying to enjoy the last little bit while it lasts. It’s a fairly clear day, with a nice breeze blowing through the trees. None of them have starting changing colours yet, but I’m sure it will only be a matter of 2-3 weeks before that will begin.

I mowed my whole front lawn yesterday, and used my weed whacker to clear all kinds of excess plant growth from around the walkways, driveway and hedges. However, the tool is a bit large and heavy for my small hands — so it has stressed my right wrist a bit, as it is quite stiff and sore today. I’ve been wearing my wrist brace to help stabilize it and keep it from aching, but I need to take it off to type. Hopefully it will get better by the weekend…

I also washed my “baby” – my Saturn wagon was getting a bit dusty and needed some lovin’. I love that deep shade of midnight blue when it is freshly washed – it just glows. I still need to have the interior cleaned and vacuumed, but I will wait till I can get one of my subs to do that for me.

Speaking of which, I need to start making a list of all the things that need to be done to the house in preparation for winter. I don’t want to wait until the last minute for some of them, like in past years. Hedges need to be trimmed, outdoor stuff stored in the garage, gutters cleaned, etc…. I also want to finish some interior projects (like painting) while the weather is still warm enough to allow the windows to be opened for airing out.

So much to be done!
