Spring cleaning

One of the springtime chores I kind of dread is cleaning out my gutters because it involves getting up on a ladder—always a sliiiightly risky proposition for me. But my neighbor’s enormous silver maple tree has nearly finished dumping its load of seeds (technically, samaras) that have filled all my gutters nearly to the brim, and thunderstorms are expected this weekend, so up I went.

No rainwater will flow through this jam.

I filled two of these.

Bring on the rain, we’re ready.

This might be my one “big” project for the season, since my house is in great shape and the garage is holding steady since I reorganized it last fall. I might not have much else to do around here on the weekends except mow the lawns.

Well, that will be fun, too. 🙂
