More estate work

Today was something of a challenge, as there was a lot of work to be done over at the estate to prep it for sale. And for somebody who hates heights as much as I do? The challenge was elevated ten fold. I probably spent more time on top of a (very tall, shaky) ladder today than I have spent on ladders my entire life until this point. But I can say with all confidence that lady_curmudgeon's brother will have no complaints at all. After over seven hours of work we had every screen scrubbed, every window has been washed inside and out and all the storm windows have had both sides cleaned as well.

After all the time I spent on the ladder I figured Hey, why stop a good thing? So back on the ladder I went to tackle the various house and garage gutters that were sprouting all sorts of greenery. I pulled three heavy garbage bags of rich, black compost out of those gutters. But hey, that chore is done so neither I nor anybody else will have to deal with it later.

I am a tired, sore boy. And tomorrow I commute back to the office for a week that'll be chock-full of stress and lots more work, all so I can give up my Saturday night by pulling an overnighter to upgrade our firewall cluster. Ah well, such is the life of the Chief Bitmover.

And gasoline filled super-soakers
