Subject: RE: Declutter & Fitness - Clearing Out the House
I've positioned three Rainbird sprinkler heads on fence posts and the hoses are on a timer that turns itself on and off. I'll have to drag another sprinkler over to the second sweet potato area by hand (the hose would cross the driveway so I can't leave it in place). I also have to finish weeding that bed and finish planting other crops.

Today I had a doctor visit to double check I hadn't done more damage than I thought with the fall. They use digital xrays these days, it's fast, though as usual the paperwork is slow. I'm okay, just deep bruising. Tomorrow is another doctor visit, this time Pepper meets the vet for a checkup and planning for treatment of her heartworms.

After the unintended slowdown I'll be content to manage a load of laundry, set up the sprinklers, and empty the kitchen sink. I keep adding things to a list of chores in the kitchen faster than I am able to cross others off. It may be time to consider hiring someone to come help with a couple of things. I'm thinking my odd-jobs friend might be the man to tote all of those branches and limb chunks to the curb this week. But I have to be here to let him in. Maybe in the evening, helping me. My neighbor offered to loan me her garden cart that holds a lot more than my wheelbarrow.
