Vacation activities ........
I apologize for the lack of posts this week. Hubbie has been on vacation, so we have been very busy. Unfortunately, we weren't busy with fun stuff or normal vacation activities. Instead, we have been working hard. We got both the deck and the pool decks stained. That took two whole days of bending over with a paintbrush. After they dried, I washed all the furniture before putting it back on the decks.
We spent another day on the GTX. It would not start. We tried everything we could think of and it refused to go. We finally had to get a wrecker to take it to the shop. We haven't heard back from the mechanic, but hopefully it will be fixed by next week.
Today, Hubbie cut the grass while I pruned the shrubs in front of the house. My hedge trimmer is at least 35 years old and a bit dull, but I managed to get a whole load of clippings off the shrubs.
Tomorrow, we plan on getting mulch to put around the shrubs and then we will use the pressure washer to clean the siding. We have algae on the north side of the house and dust and pollen over the rest of it.
