Took some time off this week and had a good vacation. Restful – in a productive sort of way.
For posterity, here’s how it went down.
Finished raking and mulching the last batch of leaves. (I’m always amazed at how many there are.) I spread some fertilizer, then put the mower and spreader into the shed.
Pulled out the snow blower, put in some gas and fired it up. Heard it might snow tomorrow.
I also cleaned out the gutters with the leaf blower – without breaking my neck. Thanks Guardian Angel!
We had an ‘OOPS’ card from a local pizzeria for a free meal, so I had lunch with my wife and daughter on Monday. I won’t name the establishment (I’m still a bit miffed at them), but they have a neat model train that goes along the walls – our little girl loved that.
I also helped the boys get ready for school in the morning.
Moved a picture of The Sacred Heart of Jesus to a new spot, directly above my computer monitor. Not sure why I didn’t do that sooner.
I didn’t get to filing paperwork and bills, but there’ll be time for that later.
My goal was to get some serious study time in this week – and I believe I succeeded. My studies included:
- Video lessons for guitar
- Sight reading
- Chord progressions
- Theory – general and compositional
- Ear training for intervals
Autumn is winding down
With Thanksgiving coming up next, things will turn hectic during the Holiday season. This turned out to be a terrific week for getting things done around the house.
How about you? Do you have some late-Fall activities you enjoy?
