Working in the yard day
I was slow getting it going today. Around noon I was finally up for the day.
But what to do today. The wind was up and no one knew for sure which way it would blow all the fires around here, so maybe I should stay home.
Stayed home just in case
So that’s what I did. Later in the day I finally went out to work on removing all these redwood tree leaves which I sweep off the roof last week. They are a very bad fire hazard if a forest fire comes through this area, so I needed to rake it all up and remove it to my garden area where I will use it for mulch.
Hauling Redwood tree leaves
More work than I thought
I did about six loads and still have more to do, maybe tomorrow as it needs to be done if one of those fires was to come this way.
Fires staying away
So far the fires are not coming my way, but when one lives in a forest, forest fires can be very concerning.
There have been some strong winds that have fanned the fires and also knocked more leaves out of the trees which puts more fuel on the ground around the house so I have some more work to do.
That was my day.
