It's time for my weekend

Good morning.
 I've just returned from cleaning the Salon, and it's a crisp 38 out this morning, going for a high of only 48.
I got out of work a little early yesterday. Early enough, to come home and get more leaves up.Yesterday was going to be the nicest day of the entire weekend, as daily temps are forecast to plummet the next few days. The trees are getting quite bare now and It should only be one more mowing in about a week, and they will all be done. That will be nearly a record for having all the leaves done so early. In past years, I'm mowing them right up into Thanksgiving weekend.
But before that, I'll need to replace the belt on the riding mower that broke.  :-(
I had to finish mowing up the leaves with the push mower.
With that done, I still had time to clean up the portable gas grill we take with us in the mo-ho.
Looks pretty good for a 7 year old grill.
Ans I've even got another late bloomer in the yard.
This is called a Toad Lily. Cute little flowers on a mass of plants. For some reason, they are blooming a little later than usual.
And Craig made pizza for dinner. Yum!
And the the guy came out about the water heater. Apparently, over the years, I have sealed up our house to the point the dryer has no surplus air to exhaust without pulling it down the water heater exhaust, so he's going to raise the vent 6 inches, and add an outside air return in the laundry room with a valve we can open when we do laundry, and close when we're not. That will supply the dryer with the extra air it needs without bringing air in to the entire house.
Okay, now it's time for a shower and get lazy bones up.   :-0


  1. Your Toad Lilies are very pretty!
    The pizza looks great! Makes me hungry. ;o)
    So the vent is operator error?
    Enjoy your weekend!

  2. I never thought you could "over seal" a house.
