yard work

On a lighter note:

Whew, just finished:

. Picking up branches and tossing them into a collection bag.
. Sweeping the front & rear patios, sidewalks (including neighbors'), and front yard into the street for the city's sweeper-trucks to clean up.
. Clearing the gutters. Yes, even the one on the second floor overlooking the concrete back patio. I had one "exciting" moment when I slipped a little and the gutter-scoop went flying when I had to put both hands down firmly on the roof to keep from falling onto said concrete patio.
. Straightening and re-fastening the front gutter with mondo-screws to prevent another winter of water spilling over onto the front brick patio and turning into Death Ice right by the front door.

Now, off to shower and work!
