Poured cup of fresh brewed coffee. 44° with clear skies this morning. Heading to 76° with mostly sunny skies. Busy day yesterday. Got shrubs pulled for neighbor. While there moved several piles of limbs to burn pile with tractor grapple. They had a real nigh metal bird house that had it bottom rusted out. cut some Lexan to fit bottom of bird house. Then use L brackets to hold lexan on and mount to pole. At home I replace a Ring Camera that had flood light had died. Then Installed one on pole barn that had been on the shelf for months.
Today will do some retainer wall repairs that I ran snow plow into last winter.

Prayers and best wishes for everyone.

Good Morning All.

Happy Victoria Day to all the Canucks here.
It pissed down rain all day. Good news though is tomorrow will be dry. 15% chance of rain. I have some stumps at the neighbours to attack tomorrow and Monday.

Kilroy, that is one nasty looking stump.

Bed time, goodnight all
There is a bigger Diameter double-trunk pine stump I will be pulling, which I am hoping is easier because it is a) pine and b) I left it a little taller, so o can get more leverage. There is an even thicker poplar that I may try pulling/punching over, so that it (hopefully) uproots.

on the plus side, starting about 3’- 4‘ down there is a good bed of clay, and I will be extracting some of that so that I can make a beehive oven and a tandoor at the house - two projects that I have been itching to do for several years now, but the materials have gotten so expensive!!!!

Good evening all. 56ºF for the start mostly clear sky, Breezy. Moderate wind wind brisk sustained gusts, sky became partly cloudy, and high temp was 74ºF. Bike ride to start day, stopped in on garage sale and could not resist buying it, $40 and runs good. Needs new air filter, oil change, and blade sharpened. Also found full set Husky metric allen wrenches. Because of the sustained wind gusts did not no leave the lake. 60 miles. Took truck back to get mower, ate lunch and napped. Did not get a chance to go over mower yet.

nice garage sale score! I have this old Murray mower that came with the house, the engine refuses to die no matter how we abuse it, but the deck has literally rotted away. I am going to try to bend up some 1/16x2 steel and make a new skirt, because the back wheels are splayed flat on the ground.

Good Morning!

God has given us another chance to get it right (or at least not screw up too badly…).

61.9F going to mid 70s, supposedly sunny all day.

Went to see Jay Allen show last night. Excellent show, very poorly attended. I figure that since Marina McBride performed the night before (and the tickets were quite pricey) people opted for only one show. Plus, it was the final night of the Rodeo, so there was that competition too, although the weather did not really help the rodeo — rain started about 6-ish, and downpours from 7:30 to 9, and the rodeo started at 8…

Relatives in town for a few days, so we will be running around with them, I don’t expect to get much done up the mountain for the west several days, other than beinging Bailey up for her walks.

time to get started on the day — coffee is calling.

I hope everyone has a happy healthy safe blessed day!

60 and wet after a nice rain last night. Going to 78.

Mostly, nice find on that mower.

Sodamo, great story on your house build and Sophie.

Kil, with that mini you are king of the mountain.

We worked all day outdoors...mowed the yard, used the grapple to move some brush, then pitchforked all 3 yards of mulch on top of landscape fabric we put down, and moved a ton of rocks with the wheelbarrow. Hitting the sack felt good.
