On the other hand, maybe I've just gotten too good at firewood tetris
At 11:30am, the lawn guy showed up. He quoted me $75 and said it would take about an hour or so.

HE'S STILL WORKING!!!

O_o

I don't recognize my yard. The only reason I know it's mine is because it's attached to the house. WOW.

I will definitely have him do a lot more work for me. He'll be back tomorrow to trim the trees and split some wood.


The firewood is all stacked in the basement. M defenestrated* the wood, I stacked it.

The wood guy shorted me on my face cord. It should be 8' x 4' stacked-- it was barely 5' x 4' stacked, if that. It was also not as high quality as last year. I know there's a firewood shortage and all, but dayam. He'll dump more off at some unspecified point in future. Tomorrow, perhaps?


I'm SO tired. So is M. We had Plans to do more Stuff, but now we've decided to relax for the rest of the night-- Italian food (delivered) and Holy Grail. Hooray!


Heh. Lawnguy JUST finished. I paid him $100, even though he didn't trim the forsythia ;)

Food's here!!! And twenty minutes early, at that! It's a Good Day :)


* Hm. Perhaps I should say she fenestrated it, since it was incoming, not outgoing...

I'm feeling all kinds of: HUNGRY. TIME FOR BREAKFAST!

Perhaps you should send that guy over to my place. Lord knows my yard could do with a major overhaul!! LOL

Actually, that's one of the major things I'm going to do next spring/summer, once all the financing and house-flipping occurs. I'm going to get someone in to basically destroy and rebuild my yards.

*waves hi to M* How is doing in her new place?

She's doing well-- just as busy as me, if not moreso!

Hey there! This is completely off-topic, and you may have said so in another entry, but did you ever receive your copy of The Absent Lover?

No, I didn't. I had a note to ask you about it this week, actually!

Okay. The person who was helping me with the mailing has been sacked. I'm putting your book in the mail myself on my lunch hour tomorrow. Sorry for the delay.
