I’ve spent the majority of today
doing some much, much needed DIY work. I’ve moved over 1000 kg of wood from one place to the other all by myself, despite my body feeling like having been in a boxing match with Mike Tyson.
The wood is from my old fence, which was just dumped there by the people that put the new fence up for me. They wanted too much money to dispose of it, so I decided to do the disposal myself - slowly over time. I kind of regret it a little now.
I’ve also been doing some gardening (essential, not recreational). I think the wood, pilled up where it was, had provided shelter for numerous creepy crawlies over the hot summer. There were countless (spider?) eggs and all manner of millipedes, centipedes, octopedes and zeropedes crawling all over the place.🕷🐜
It got to a point where I had to pause to ensure there weren’t any scorpions lurking under the planks of wood 🦂
I feel as though we’re on the last stretch of good weather before autumn really sets in, so I’m taking the opportunity to be responsible. I probably need to mow the lawn too after all this is done. It’s the craziest I’ve ever seen it - one corner is green and lush following the rainfalls, while the other corner looks like the Sahara desert.
It’s funny what I’ve been doing during the ‘coffee’ breaks; laundry, paperwork, and even this very post you’re reading right now. In which case, I better get back to the manual labour before the sun disappears and the temperature drops.
Peace and Love ✌🏿
