Hi Nina,
Happy June! Home maintenance is certainly an on-going task. I do need to check my gutters but not going up on a ladder without someone else around... just in case.

Hey Nina Hollander 
I only have one small area with gutters in my courtyard. It's not particularly high but still requires a ladder.  I have a friend who will help me soon.

Happy Monday Nina, I am lucky that I have some of these items done in May.  I will not show this to my wife or she will have me working on more tonight.

Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®, CRS hi Paul.... I'm pretty certain it's not you. I've had nothing but problems on this platform for days... I've cleaned out cache, I've tried three different browsers.... problems on all. And I've added at least a dozen grey hairs to my head waiting for things to move here!

Given this pandemic environment and the work-from- home situation in which I currently find myself, things are getting done around our house that have been on the "job-jar list" for quite some time.

John Juarez hi John... I've been busy throughout the pandemic "season" and somehow have not found time for all sort of little tasks. Then again, that's probably a good thing!
