It's been a very long wait... I was owed a work vaca week back in June, but because Summer's the busy season it isin't allowed until Autumn. Then only one person can be out at a time, so everyone fights over available weeks. Five months later, I finally catch my sorely needed break.
I have a chore filled week Off planned. I need to find a tall ladder to fix some vinyl siding hanging off since the Nor'Easter last week. The worst thing about that is the odd, creaky noise as it sways in the wind all the time. Can't wait to tack it back up. (quiet). The leaves need to get cleaned out of gutters before they ice over. Still haven't raked the whole yard n road out front either. Then there's digging out the winter attire n washing it all so I can wear it, sans dust mites, including coats.
It's getting pretty chilly out there finally too. Luckily the ocean air is keeping this spot on the warmer side of frost so far. My petunias are still alive out there, n some of the tiny beets I didn't pick yet too. May pick some greens to eat n have a few blooms on the table yet. A little tree has again volunteered to get donned with lights, n I'll dig those out soon.
Thankfully, no traveling for me the upcoming holiday week is planned. I'm hoping the weather stays dry most of the week, so I can try riding the fixed bicycle around n get used to it before winter snow piles up. Finally got air in the tires today, but it was dark already when I got home. Hope the tires stay inflated for awhile.
With any luck I'll get to tons of put off stuff around here, n have a quiet enough week to get to several crafty art projects that were left waiting for time so long ago. First of course I need some relaxation. I went to Fave beach n got most of the store errands done the first day.
So aside from massive chore catch-up n home organizing (or searching for long ago buried items), hopefully there won't be alot of side-tracking taking place.
I'll also be attempting a schedule adjustment to sleep n awaken earlier to fit in more daylight. This should be the least stressful week schedule I've had since a year ago last September. On the docket next, movies, reading, snacking, n naps in any order...
