After getting pretty worn out yesterday it seemed like it would be a good idea to take it easy today and gave my body a break.
Making vitamin D
I did a lot of chair hopping around the yard and spending some time watching my chickens do their thing. It was a nice day with the sun out and a little wind, so I sat in the sun and made vitamin D with my shirt off.
Some van work
Gas tank vent
I took it all apart and found the vent pipe was plugged up. I tried to clear the plug but couldn’t so just made another vent pipe and installed that and that should work better now. I wish I had a better way to vent the gas tank but for now that’s the best I can do.
While I was laying under there, when I turned over I saw this over my head. Broken shackles on the leaf spring at the right rear wheel. It looks like they’ve been broken for a couple years or so. I had noticed my van was leaning a tiny bit to that side but didn’t think much about it has it’s an old van, but now I know why and need to fix it soon.
I did brush off the threads and put some oil on them to help loosen them up for now.
More taken it easy
After that it was a lot more chair hopping and some naps.
I’d noticed the chip truck guys had dumped another load of woodchips this morning before I got up. They were nice redwood chips so I moved a few loads around the yard just to add to the soil in some places.
I sat around outside until it got dark when I came on into the house for the day.
