The weather is beautiful in NE Ohio for this time of the year. It was in the low 60's yesterday so it was time to take a half day vacation and get some outside work done. I bought these screen gutter covers earlier this year but didn't install them.
Next I needed to clean up one of the flower beds. The day lilies had died back and there were some dead weeds had needed to be removed.
I needed the wheelbarrow to haul the spruce to the compost pile. I had forgotten I had tossed some vinca I had salvaged in the wheelbarrow so I had to plant what had survived before I could use the wheelbarrow.
As I hauled the spruce to the back I hauled a load of sweet peat from the back to the flower bed. Two loads of very wet sweet peat and the front looked much better. There is no way I could get the stump out so I drilled some holes in it, poured some bleach on it, and I will wait until spring to see if I can get it out.
I was getting tired by this point but I had one more job to do. See this empty spot in the garage?
I now have a paper towel holder. My brother gave me a huge pack of paper towels that he salvaged from a house he was helping to empty. The only issue with the towels is they have a musty smell so I won't be using them in the house, but they make perfect garage towels for checking oil, etc.
By 4 p.m. I was tired so I headed inside to get something to eat. I need to learn to pace myself better because I could only think about doing any sewing. I was up early this morning and got the binding partly sewn on the gray and pink herringbone quilt. I will get it trimmed and stitched tonight.
Now that is what I call a vacation! LOL!!! I plan on taking another half day today. I need to get as much cleared out of the living room as I can so I can finish painting it before the floor guy comes. I also need to move out all I can out of the bedrooms too so there will be many trips up and down the steps this afternoon.

That is my idea of a vacation too, a day to get caught up on everything.
I have a ton of things that I need to do around here too but I'm not motivated enough yet!
Hard work, but that sort of day always leaves you feeling good. Jobs well done.
