The woods are slowly filling in. Rain the past two days is finally jump starting more growth. These pics are from the past week. Today the bamboo has shot up like magic. I need to mow, but ran out of daylight too soon again.
Too much to do around here. I'm still water challenged- lugging dishes n shower supplies down, n water to wash hands, cook, n drink up from the downstairs empty apartment. Due to the lack of lights n pre-dawn heat there, I've been taking a short nap n waiting until daylight to shower after work, then sleeping a few more hours before work again. It's been a major hassle for two weeks now. I've been long-duration sleep deprived all this time.

The landlord folks finally decided they couldn't handle doing the needed work themselves, n now I have to shop around here for some one to help out- which I wanted done weeks ago already! More missed sleep to do that now...
Just what I needed, more to do, less relaxing, n even less sleep- calls waking me all day, with no time off from work! Meanwhile the house is non-functional with stuff moved around n hard to get to until the work is done- no telling how long this will take.

After spending weeks of my free time cleaning up the yard debris, some still deposited from Hurricane Irene, I'd done the major raking, n pruning. N Then this week they removed the trailer from the yard. Now I need to fix where it sat for decades, remove wild vines n more raking. '
I just want to sleep, read, n play guitar, not worry about all this other stuff like being ready for work again, having clean clothes, dishes, n food. I can't even consider getting out the blocked art supplies! I'm really burnt out! This is not what I'd planned to do for spring cleaning (making more of a mess moving supplies out of the bathroom n kitchen to other rooms instead of cleaning dust from the other rooms-ugh!) N now here comes the tree pollen, so I can't hang out the clothes n have to hang them all over the backroom.
Blogger will take more time. My pics are not in the intended order here, n I give up for today- but did finally find the preview button, n where they hid the html button, but then I can't get the edit box to come back! I decided to copy my text from notepad.
Guess my life just wasn't hard enough yet...
Edit Note: I'm going crazy unable to format this post right!
