The job is never ending. Just when I think I may have the inside of the house some-what under control, I am needed outside.
This housewife is winterizing our home, with gas powered tools.
Winterizing you ask?? I can hear you. Yes, we have to winterize in Florida.
This means, cleaning up the outside living areas in hopes of the weather cooling off and being able to spend the days/evenings outside or at least with the windows open.
I love our lanai/pool area. We really appreciate it all year round, but it gets the most use during fall/winter. This upper area is really nice too, we added lots of planting beds to give more of the jungle feel. The problem with the jungle feel? Weeds grow in the jungle!
Over the last weekend, I gave the girls an area to weed and a time limit too. I will be done with the rest of it by the weekend.
But, I get the greatest of pleasures, by powering up a pressure cleaner.
**cue manly grunt here**
I was getting gunk off the pavers…but my main issue with the lanai area? The cage top. It gets a bit uglified with a green cast and cobwebs.
But to reach this height, I have to use a ladder.
As I am climbing up and down the ladder with the powerful
pleasure pressure cleaner, I am praying that I don’t end being the basis for a new show: “Weird Ways People Die”
Three things I learned:
1) When sand is flying at immeasurable speeds and hits your calves, it hurts.
2) The construction industry should seriously start investigating on how we can have spiders build our homes, cause I could barely get rid of the spider webs. They can stand up to my pressure cleaning? Then, I think they can stand up to a cat 5 hurricane.
3) The spider/cob webs over the main pool area? Will not be reached until I sprout wings.
Is this how most housewives spend their days?
What are bon bon’s anyway?
As I was finishing up my work outside for the day, I noticed something moving outside near the screen door. Who/What is that? One of my friends coming to visit?
More on that little adventure tomorrow.
