Five for Friday

unnamed (6)

Well it’s that time of week once again where I still do battle with my brain.  Let’s see what we have up my sleeve this week.

1. The gutters that I had installed on my house this week worked amazingly well,  I used to have my own version of Victoria Falls whenever the rain came off of where the east facing roof and the dormer roof met.  Not any more.  That’s one more issue removed off of my list.

2. I got my rain barrel repair kit installed just in time too.  The rain coming off of the north facing roof of the shed completely filled the 45 gallon rain barrel.  Wow!

3. It’s going to be a wet weekend for us. We’re having a nice soaking rain falling right now in central Minnesota.  These are some nice rains to walk in but I guess I’m just weird that way.

4. It’s Friday the 13th.  I decided to tempt the fates by doing 13 rounds for my initial morning walk instead of my normal 8 – 10.

5. I found my old Olympus FE-360 digital camera and it still works.  Well, it works as long as the battery holds a charge which isn’t very long.  So, I ordered a new battery for it.  Now I have to find back the cord to plug it in to a USB port so i can download the pics.  ‘m pretty sure I know where that is.  I think I’ll keep it in my backpack or in my car so I have a camera (or something that looks like a camera) whenever I don’t have my normal camera with me.

Well, there ya have it.  Take that brain!  Feel free to comment and/or maybe tempt the fates by doing something outside the norm today.

  1. Rain! That’s not gonna happen here for a while says the forecast. We need rain badly. Our farmers are out of food for the animals because of lack of rain for a long time. Our groundwater reserves are historical low. It’s quite alarming. Also we have about 30C in the days now and that’s a lot warmer than normal. So many of us really wish for rain. “Pling”

  2. I’m hoping that rain skips over us tomorrow – I have outdoor plans that will not be terribly nice if it shows up (though it likely won’t entirely stop me). As for my walk, it remains a game-time decision as to whether I walk in the rain or hit the treadmill.

  3. Rain? In the summer? Wow! That rarely happens here. My gutters are now full of pine needles and climbing up on a ladder to roof level is not something I relish.

      1. Ours are Ponderosa pine, with very long needles – I tried flushing them with a hose one year, but they just created a huge pile and refused to move further. Good idea, not so successful, but thank you.
