Just a short one today…
Water is essential, beneficial, and occasionally damaging.
With most of the water I captured on the deck I bottled over sixteen gallons to use for future WLF watering. I still have bucket in WLF that I will dump into the rain barrel to finally test its worthiness.
At some point yesterday I also looked up into the den ceiling to discover a small discoloration, which of course immediately impelled me to go up into the attic. I found a small water leak in the roof, near a spot I suspected to be troublesome for some time. I have had a look around, am keeping my fingers crossed that it was the great quantity of rain that fell in a short period of time which allowed the water to get as far as the inner ceiling, and next week will arrange someone to come out and have a look and provide a quote for repair.
And me without an income… Perhaps I will have to get a job again next year after all. At what point would it be cheaper to knock down the ITP Estate and replace it with a fully-functioning much smaller abode?
To help take my mind off my new woes, and to ensure a better night’s sleep than the one I had last night, I will be suiting up soon with mosquito-resistant clothing and spending the day doing manual labor choring in WLF. I pulled down another fifteen-foot magnolia tree yesterday and intend to chop it up, and will be cutting and/or chipping many of the branches lying in the backyard at the moment.
Hope you have a happy and healthy day.
