What a field day for the heat
A thousand people in the street
Singing songs and carrying signs
Mostly saying, "hooray for our side"

Weekend in the rain

Spent the day packing up the Halloween stuff and getting it into the storage shed. Also emptied out the rain barrels and put them away for the winter. All while dodging the rain drops. While I needed to clean up the yard and my leaf blower is rated for "wet leaves," I don't think they meant, "leaves wet from 3 days of rain, and it's still raining."

This week ended with finding out I need to be in Virginia the full week before classes. Joy. If it were one week later, I could probably work out to take the test early. But being the last week I miss the last two classes, the review, the practical review, and the last lab/paper chase.

Finished some paperwork. Slept in first. Got some things done that needed to be done and had been waiting for a few weeks.

All in all, a product Saturday, even without some writing. Although last night I got up around 2am and wrote two pages (long hand) of a story in my head.

Rain barrel - I need to pack ours up, but first I need to buy a new section of downspout (our old one was too short, which is why we chose that location for the rain barrel).

I think 2 am is close enough to today to count.

2am certainly counts as a "day" to me.

I suggest the "extendable" down spouts. It's how I restructure my down spouts so that next year I just removed the plastic accordion piece and put the diverters back in place.
