I did the annual cleaning of the cupola (the metal flashing part) and then painting the base that I had caulked yesterday. Same with the wood vent on the eave of the house over the carport. I mowed the yard. I condensed things in the shed to allow the mower back inside. I carted all the yard waste to the dump and I generally cleaned up or put things away. Oh, and I finally put the finials on the front porch railings. Funny how just a little touch can make such a difference.
Basically, I was busy doing a whole bunch of little things yesterday, so the blog went neglected. I also was busy trying to keep an eye on the mother. When I got home Friday night, she’d been bitten or stung by something on her neck while working outside. While it was red, it wasn’t all that noticeable. That wasn’t the case Saturdaya night when I got home from my day of scrapbooking and trivia. Her neck was swollen and bright red.
It was better last night but still enough to make her miserable.
I also topped off the brake fluid in the car, checked its other fluids while the hood was up, and cleared the interior out so I can hopefully take it across the street to have it detailed. Poor car. It's pretty dirty. Cross your fingers. They may take one look and decide it's too much effort!
Amazing how many of those "little things" can pile up when you're working past dusk on a big project. All you want to do while you're doing that is just get it all inside so you can lock it up!
I spent a chunk of the evening on a project for work which I resumed at 4 a.m. (Yeah. I know. But I was awake anyway so I might as well accomplish something.) So I have this feeling that 's it's going to be a veeeeeeeeeeery loooooooong day.
