Tgif..
I'm off today and will be a lazy bum resting up for the long holiday weekend.
I'm doing 3 12s in a row.
Come June, I'm going to make another schedule change.

I'm at the gym now. Then replace the calories I burned off with a 1000 calorie lunch. We'll see about this afternoon.

Up and at it this morning. Already made a trip to the city to pick up treated lumber for camp. I was successful today at a smaller lumber yard. In and out in 10 minutes. When I got home, I had all these great plans to head out to camp early and take a drive to go looking for firewood.

Then the lightbulb went off. There are a couple of decent sized balsam trees that came down last summer in a wind storm at the back of the property. So I suited up and headed out with the yard trailer and side by side. After cutting and loading it, I hauled it back to split with the electric splitter and loading it into the truck. I got about 3/4 of the box full. Should be good for a couple months at camp.

Just finished lunch and getting ready to go mow the yard before the rain comes late afternoon, early evening. It's supposed to rain all week-end so I need to get it done before it gets too high.

Worked on rocks again today, got about 1/2 way and ran out of rocks. There was a big over grown shrub there that took up 1/3 of the flower bed. I will steal some from the other ones that need to be re done and in the end get what I need to finish delivered. Im putting about 4 hours on it every day working until it starts to heat up outside. Now I am going to shower and then play with the Suzuki.

I got "wined" last evening.
I believe this is a local/Ohio thing.
Some of the gals I know have been doing this, receiving them.
Bag of goodies left on someone's doorstep, knock.. run like hell lol
I've yet to figure out the mystery person.
I suspected my friends Jules or Charlotte.
Neither one.
Anyway.. it's much appreciated.

Got the pool heater fired up.

Pool robot in the pool too.

Also been swapping & cleaning pool filters every couple of hours for the past 2 days. We got so much rain before opening the pool that topsoil from the flower beds washed across the patio and into the swimming pool

So basically I've been cleaning muck out of the pool since we opened it. The good news is the water is actually reasonably clear, the dirt/mud/leaf debris pretty much sank to the bottom. So much fun.

Repaired and painted a couple patio planters for the lovely Mrs_Bob. That has been a 3 day project, largely because I want the epoxy to set properly before sanding and painting. But its now done and they are just waiting for their flowers.

A friend of mine built me a custom concrete table, over a painted steel base, that is now sitting next to the pool house. That was a bear to carry and set up, but it's there. Much to the dismay of my back, which is now sore. A muscle relaxer is helping but I don't like the mental fog it cast over me.

I've got chicken marinading in a vacuum sealed bag that will be going into the smoker in about 10 minutes. I've also got pork chops with a brown sugar/maple dry rub on them, those will also go into the smoker but they will cook faster than the chicken to it will be a bit before I put those in.

It was pushing 80 degrees with bright sunshine up until an hour ago. Clouds are moving in, thunderstorms to follow. Oh, and more rain. We don't need any more rain. There is standing water everywhere, the ground is saturated, fields flooded, creeks are overflowing!

Looks like you're on a lucky streak. Maybe you should buy a lottery ticket!

Went back to Freedom Rock today because it's the 22 annual time Bubba painted the rock and 3 friends who live about 150 miles north of there came down. It's less 50 miles from me. Then we had a late lunch. Good time!

Good Sunday morning!
Looks like we're going into some major warm weather.
I had to turn on the central air last night.
By the way, the person who "wined" me was our scheduler.
Thanks Roberta!

Up at dawn's crack at camp. I was mostly packed up so I finished up and closed things down to return home. Got back at 9am. It's looking to be a hot muggy day today.

Woke up yesterday morning and my right ankle hurt so bad that I couldn't walk without a cane. I took a couple of Tylenol, something that I never do, and it helped some. Hobbled around all day. Got up this morning and it was the same old thing. Took more Tylenol. It feels a lot like gout but I've never had gout in my ankles before. It's supposed to rain every day for the next week so I'll have plenty of time to rest up. If it doesn't get better I suppose that I'm going to have to go to the doctor for a shot. That'll be a lot of fun!

I wonder if the rain/moisture is causing the extra pain. I know it does that to my arthritis. I don't know much about the CBD oil but have you considered that an option? Is CBD oil legal there? It is in a lot of states now.
