It’s the beginning of autumn. I know this because we’ve started having frost in the mornings, the deciduous trees on the route upriver are changing colour, and the rowan trees (mountain-ash) are covered in red berries.
I’m trying to accomplish all the stuff on my “getting ready for winter” list. Often that means adding to my next shopping list (Oh I need D-cell batteries for that sigh).
I’ve started sorting through clothes and summer “things” and cycling them upstairs while I bring down the cold weather supplies. This adds to the shopping list as well e.g., Find xxxx small dog sweater.
The car needs oil and wiper fluid – and new wipers. I’ll do that next week. I don’t know when, but I want to clean the upholstery etc., as well. I also really should shampoo the carpets.
One thing I did get done was shocking the well. Ahuva assures me I can add this to my resume. 🙂 Help was needed getting the well cap off – and removing the filter casing. The combination of testosterone’s need to tighten-things-beyond-reasonable-just-to-prove-manhood and my still lagging upper-body strength means I couldn’t do it myself.
Somebody else helped. At least that’s what he said he was doing. 🙂
