Overslept today..I shut my alarm on my phone off meaning to get up but fell back to sleep. Knew I was going to be late for our appointment at the groomer. So I called her and she said it was okay to come in a bit late. Anyways, my sweet Suzy got groomed and looks so pretty! Look at that pretty face! Suzy813.jpg

We got loads done RR..🔨🛠🔩. we're always doing something out there, it's not what we'd call a low maintenance rear garden because as you know we have all the mature trees, and masses of shrubs, herbs and flowers etc. .. .., but we just want to get all the hardware done now ready for winter. (we're expecting a harsh winter) ..it's about 12 years since the doors were last changed altho' painted every couple of years.. and of course time is a factor with hubs , he has to do it when he can grab a day or a week, off work...

Still clearing storm debris away. Today's task was one I've been dreading, it was the worst....a tangle of lesser branches and two larger limbs on my car barn roof....that's what I call my garage...it's got an upstairs loft. One of the limbs was hanging onto a power line. At 66 yrs old I don't belong up on a second story roof cutting away a 20 foot tree branch from a power line. But I did it. And hauled away most of what had been on that roof. I'm a bit more than half way finished with what mother nature knocked down in about half an hour. I also baked four loaves of rustic multi grain bread for the Saturday market. Had a nap between the two jobs.

Good Evening Kids...
Writing now, cuz not sure if I will be on in the morning or not... Had breakfast with the boys... Our normal waitress wasn't in today, she kinda spoils us, and treats us pretty good... The waitress we had today, we had last summer, she only does it part-time... She's a teacher full time and does that in the summers... But she's a pretty kewl Lady too... Put up the garage door opener, so when it's -35 and blowing snow, won't have to get out and open the door anymore... Tomorrow going to clean up the scrap I got, and maybe go and look for some more... Anyways Ladies and Gents, I hope YOU are all having a wonderful evening, and hope YOU all have even a better day tomorrow... God Bless YOU all...
Mike

fascinating day.:rolleyes:.. Cleaning ..upstairs and down, bathrooms, kitchen, stairs etc...... then cut the back , sides and top of one of the 6 feet by 50 feet hedges ( i have to stand on the top of the ladders to reach to the back) ... I don't mind the cutting with the electric hedge cutter, it's all the brushing up of the paths I dislike, even tho' I lay down some tarps, it still manages to get onto the driveway and paths.

Made a quick dinner , of mash, beans and ham, then washed up, (it's almost 7.30pm ) and shortly hubs has some people coming round (business dealings).. and I'm tucked out of the way , posting here and half watching a film on TV at the same time ...that's the way I like it!! 📺

LOL HD, I never had that kind of shed, just a steel one behind a group of trees.

We have the double door Barn shed which we built last summer,,,,and the big brick shed which has wooden doors on it RR...I think you've seen it before ..remember with the light blue doors?

We've remade them and painted them sage green now... 😊
I do vaguely remember, Holly. I think sage green is nicer.
