House work day
I thought it’d be a good idea today to do some house work as with all the projects I’ve been doing I’ve been neglecting it mostly as it’s not one of my favorite jobs.
That new dust mop behind the shop vac saved the day.
I have a lot of cobwebs on the back porch so I started there with the vacuum. Then I started on the kitchen but my back soon said ouch, stop, so I did. I forgot vacuuming is hard on my back for some reason, maybe that’s why I don’t like house work. :O)
New dust mop
Last time I used the vac I bought that new dust mop but never used it yet so once my back was shot I thought I’d use it.
But first since my back was shot I needed to exercise it a bit. :O)
Digging out berry vines
I’d like to clean out these blackberry vines growing in my cherry orchard. It’s a lot of work but I thought I’d get started so I did with a rest chair close by.
I like the new dust mop
Well that new dust mop made things work out pretty well and I was able to clean up most of my floors pretty good in a short time and my back didn’t seem to mind the thing too much. That was good.
After another break I was back at the berry vines digging away and trying to avoid getting pricked too much as those little thorns do hurt.
I put the water on the spot where I was digging berries as the chickens like it wet. After I get it wet I’ll let them into that spot to work on it a bit.

Chickens ready to work
By now the chickens wanted to get through this gate as I usually let them into this part of the yard just before dark so they don’t get into too much mischief. The dug up berry vines are in this area so I shut the sprinkler off and let them into the area to dig and scratch as chickens do.
While they were at it I did some chair hopping and puttering around the yard and soon the day was over.
Another nice fall day.
