Big V Mumbles About Something

Friday, December 9, 2022

Another long and grueling day outside cleaning the yard. Today, it was a smaller area, maybe 35' x 45', but I literally found two old lawnmowers that were deep in the weeds and "tangly vines" as my wife calls them. I had waded out into that mess before but never saw the mowers. The vines and... Sign in to see full entry.

We have been super busy all week cleaning the backyard and it is finally beginning to show. We are trying to add more fencing that will allow us to completely fence in our yard. Right now, we have about 70% of the area fenced, but the southeast corner is twice the jungle the rest of the area was,... Sign in to see full entry.

It's another nice day here in the armpit of Florida. It got down to 55 last night, but we are heading up to 82 again this afternoon. If I saw the extended forecast right, we have another week just like this last one before we have another cold spell of highs in the low-60s and lows down to 38/40. It... Sign in to see full entry.

We worked until very late last night and we are both up early this morning to get back at it while the sun is warm and kind to us. The front of the house must be hand-painted for a number of reasons, but it is now almost done. This paint job is strictly cosmetic to make it look better. In a year,... Sign in to see full entry.

Good morning. After a long, LONG day yesterday, my wife made me go to bed early (10 PM vs my normal 1 AM) and I feel better today. We worked outside until well after dark and got about a third of the front of the house hand painted. The color is a darker, brighter blue than I had been told it was,... Sign in to see full entry.

We started painting the house yesterday. It's a bit darker blue than I thought it might be, but it will still look good. The front of the place needs to be hand-painted, which is being a royal hemorrhoid due to having to do it on a fourteen-foot ladder, but like everything else here, it is slowly...

Good afternoon. The day is off to an interesting start. Several completely announced visitors who I distinctly told not to "just stop by." If you're going to travel 1500, you have plenty of time to warn me you are coming. The rest of this is a completely useless post so I can remind myself of... Sign in to see full entry.

We've got another beautiful day coming up with lots to do on the agenda. It seems the more things take shape, the more we want to get done. Yesterday was busy, and I suspect today will be the same. I've revived a Vella project I had put on hold a few months back to spend more time working on "In The... Sign in to see full entry.

It seems that some days, we work all day and it seems we have accomplished nothing and then there are days like today. After several days of scrubbing the exterior of the woodwork in preparation to paint the place, today we slapped on the first of the paint on the trim. It wasn't a lot of paint nor...

I was about to make my morning post here when one of the guys we've hired to do some work for us showed up. I didn't have to help him as much as explain what we were doing and how it needed to be done. He's finally done, paid, and gone. It's becoming a beautiful day after a frigid night. The next...
