Stopped for Michigan

Our daughter is moving to Michigan and her apartment lease is ending today, so her clothing, kitchen stuff and furniture was, yesterday, moved into storage unit. The space that I reclaimed with the shelves I built is now fully occupied. When one opens the “garage door” to the storage unit, it is as full as practical. I suppose one could get a few socks or paper towel rolls in the unit, but that’s about it.

Until her stuff is moved out, in another 10 days, I’m not able to move stuff into storage, so that part of our move plans are stopped.

In the meantime, I have been working on the lawn. To me, a lawn is a waste of water and I’d just as soon not have the lawn, but…it’s there…and my wife likes it. 🙂 I have a de-thatching rake and I’ve removed quite a lot of thatch from the lawn. That project is stopped at about 2/3 complete until tomorrow morning when the city trash truck empties the now full trash barrel.

Once the thatch removal is complete, I’ll spread fertilizer on the lawn and soon the lawn will look like something that belongs “back east” rather than in the USA desert southwest.

Once the lawn is done, I’m not sure what else I can do, so I’ll probably work on the old truck. I have the parts and, since I have the time, I might as well take care of this stuff now.
