Yesterday, I took down and rolled up my water hose out by the garden.
Puttered around and cleaned up some dead flowers from around the place.
Cleaned and oiled a bunch of hand tools before storing them for the winter.
Started to mulch the leaves in the yard but decided I'd wait for one more windy day to insure they have all fallen. No sense in doing it twice.
Placed more Decon in stratigic places in and around the outbuildings. Gotta keep that mouse population down.
Completed my super-duper low dollar handmade camera stand for photographing pictures of small items for ebay. (It is a converted Photo Enlarger which enables me to move the camera up or down to obtain the right height over the object. Great for photographing coins).
Nancy hasn't been feeling up to snuff lately so I applied my culinary skills to preparing dinner last night. I'm a whiz at making cornbread from those prepackaged mixes. Labored through opening a can of Spinach and nuking some potatoes in the microwave. Next I laid out some plastic wrap on which I placed 2 small steaks and covered with more wrap. I then proceeded to tenderize by pounding away with a wooden mallet. After my hand and arm began to feel as though they would fall off, I placed the steaks in a pan with some hot peanut oil. A light sprinkling of steak seasoning and soon thereafter, I served up as good a meal as anyone could want.
I did the dishes and feel asleep watching "The Wheel of Fortune". Woke up about ten and drug my carcus into bed. I stood back up about 5 am.
Now, aside from the leaves and the dead flowers and putting away the water hose, how do I know it's fall? Well, it gets dark earlier and the tempature has dropped and old bears like myself tend to fall asleep easier. must be the thicking of the blood. .........gfp
