I spent a big part of my day cutting more limbs off of the holly tree and picking up the leaves under it. There were several years of leaves under there, I picked up and I filled a total of 8+ big plastic leaf bags with leaves and little sticks. I plan to put those in the yard debris cans as the trash removal people empty them every two weeks.

Yeah, I know it’s a mess back there, it is on my to-do list to get that looking better, but it is kinda out of sight and will have to wait until I get some other things done first. Roy, you will notice the old refrigerator is gone. ?

The limbs are now loaded on the truck ready to go to the Reece burn pile.

I still have a few leaves to pick up back there but it looks a lot better.

There were a couple of items under the tree that were interesting: a cat collar and a busted cell phone.

One bonus of city water being expensive, the grass doesn’t grow much when you don’t water here in TGNW; don’t have to mow very often. The basic cost of water is $82 a month and goes up from there depending on how much you use. Ugh!

I drove April to the Post Office to mail a package during the afternoon. She still is hesitant to drive the new car.

We took a nap after we got back from the P.O.

Pat and Scott watched their game shows together from 7:00 to 8:00 and we watched TV during the evening.


I don’t have any firm plans for today, maybe I’ll make a run out the Three Dog Farm and unload those limbs on the burn pile.

We haven’t talked about what else we might do.


It is currently 63º and cloudy with a prediction of sun and 85º high.

That’s all for August 6, keep in touch.
