Time for a hurricane cut?

home chores
Filled five big trash cans with plant clippings yesterday.

 

A crew is arriving in an hour for the annual palm tree trimming.

Forty sabal palms – the Florida State tree – will get a hurricane cut.

In preparation, i trimmed our split-leafed philodendrons.

David, owner of PLM, is an exceptional small business owner. His focus is commercial landscape management, but he allows me to be a client because our yard is two-acres and landscaped like a business.

The wonder of a single ordinary day

homeowner chores
Yesterday, Friday, at 7am, irrigation control panel. Have a sprinkler zone that only shuts off when i turn off the entire water supply to the house. We have to manage this for 72 hours until Monday morning.

Hunger drives their daily routine. Walking to the gym is what drove this chance meeting yesterday.

 

vultures near Disney
Life is hard. The Armadillo (upper left) got too close to the road. Now the Vultures have the same challenge – or else they miss a meal.

 

biking near Disney World
Will this new process stick? Will it transform?

We smiled and then thought, “No one cares.” Then we smiled some more. PS. By no one, i mean no Floridians.

 

Winter Garden Theater
High School volunteer opportunity last night and this afternoon.

 

Publix egg section
The Just Crack An Egg product is gone. The day before, we took eight from dozens on the shelf. In this photo, even the space where they are stocked is gone.

 

All of the photos above were taken yesterday as the day passed by hour after hour.

The continuous upkeep required for home ownership

The continuous upkeep required for home ownership often yields unexpected pleasure. Like yesterday’s venture onto the front porch roof to take care of something.

On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.

The mundane, boring rhythm of life’s upkeep

Palm tree trimming
Annual palm tree trimming. Trees center left are next.

 

Some chores require daily attention and we are the only ones who can do them.

Other chores happen weekly, monthly, quarterly, annually.

Some require experts to complete.

Annual tree trimming seems insignificant until you remember that next month is the peak month for Hurricane season (June 1 – Nov 30).

There are some chores we do once in a lifetime, maybe. One of those was yesterday. A phone call (from Epcot) with the guy that produces Lee Cockerell’s podcasts.

Will it lead to me doing podcasts? It’s a pricy proposition. How do you organize yourself to calculate the risk versus reward?

Oh, and one more chore. Bought a new Macbook two days ago. It’s still in the box.
