This was a pleasantly balanced weekend – a good mix of being busy and sitting around. I got some house things done, Lloyd and I did some ‘dreaming about how to build the new CDC if it someday happens’ (He did all the good dreaming. You can see some inspiration here and add to it if you like.) Most importantly, though, he cleaned the gutters.
I can’t remember the last time we cleaned them. We almost didn’t get it done this weekend, due to a sneaky nap on Saturday and rainy skies on Sunday. But the rain stopped and we weren’t sleepy. (I say ‘we’ because that wheelbarrow doesn’t move itself, y’know.)
There was a fair amount of sludge in the actual gutters, and Lloyd said, “I don’t know if these gutter guards are even worth it. Maybe I won’t put them back on.”
I responded, “Are you kidding? They’re worth it just for catching those maple seeds.”
He agreed, for I am always right.
