Chore Day 08/06/2022

Services for Real Estate Pros with Ward County Notary Services

Yesterday was work "Catch-up Day" after a brief camping trip (two glorious days at our favorite campground).

Today was chore day at home.

Our list was long.

First of all Timmothy and I had to repair the screen door that Baby (our new dog) could easily walk through. We replaced the entire screen and added a little extra protection to the area she could walk through.

Next it was time to mow the lawn.

Mow the Lawn.

If you have yet to purchase your first home note that mowing the lawn means mow, trim the edges, blow off the sidewalks, and once in a while trim the trees (as we did today).

Weed the garden.

If you are new to gardening remember that your plants may grow a half an inch a day while your weeds will grow at half a foot a day.

We even cut wood today.

Just the right size for either our firepit at home or for camping. I use a electric chain saw, quit & inexpensive.

Re-plant backyard garden the a BAD DOG dug up.

It was a very good day. I got to spend a good amount of time with my son and we got a lot accomplished. I know I will sleep well tonight. Oh ya, I almost forgot the hour we spent at church preparing for a guest pastor because our minister is out on a well deserved vacation.

Good morning Bob. Makes me think living in a hirise in downtown Chicago has advantages. I did not have all those chores yesterday but remember well when I did. Enjoy your day.

Good morning, Bob... I am exhausted after reading this post and about everything you got done... I think I'm with Baby... I'd just sit there and supervise.

That is a long list of chores that you accomplished and I am sure that you enjoyed doing them with your son.

Endre Barath, Jr. I'm guessing that with you being a former Marine you could have done all that Timmothy and I did in about a half hour. 😊

Isn't that the truth Kat Palmiotti . With the property you own I am guessing you have a log splitter and a few good sized chainsaws just to take care of what Mother Nature has put on the ground on her own.

It sure does have it's advantages Wayne Martin . Some times I thank that would be the way for me to go as well but I just collect to much "stuff" and need out buildings to keep it.

She does a good job of that Nina Hollander, Broker . However she is really good at digging. If only I could get her to dig where I want her to. 😄

Timmothy needs to come to my house.  I have a similar project for him here!

Good Monday morning, Bob.

I have some yard work to do but it is too hot for me to work outside.

We had a real break in the weather with highs dropping down into the 60's Roy Kelley so it was perfect to get these things done. Today we will be back into the 90's.
