What a difference another day makes

The squirrel checks out the dumpster

Anoth­er day, anoth­er bunch of garage demo­li­tion.

Above: the fore­man checks the dump­ster’s con­tents.

Below: some more com­par­i­son pho­tos

The garage with its roof down

And begin­ning to end.

The garage, roof still intact

There’s still some work to do—mostly cleanup—but we got a lot done in a few days. Huge thanks to Kevin, who lent his exper­tise, his mus­cles, and his chain­saw to the removal of the roof.

After, I sat in the yard and took a few more art­sy pho­tos.

The branches straight above our yard
I’m gonna miss those branch­es when they’re gone

Writing Retreat 2020, Day 6

Star Trails

Thurs­day:

  • Big break­fast, in which I dis­cov­ered that Trap­per Bites, eggs, and pota­toes are an amaz­ing com­bo
  • 1,000 words in “Dried Flow­ers”
  • 6 km bike ride
  • A bunch of macro pho­tos in the camp­ground
  • Also met with the own­er of a “49-ish” Mer­cury truck (it’s a ’49, but it has A/C and an auto­mat­ic trans­mis­sion)
  • 1,000 words in Trans­la­tions (or more like­ly Daniel, Daniel, Daniel)
  • And before bed, I set up my cam­era in the cab­in’s cov­ered porch, and took pho­tos till the bat­tery died about an hour lat­er; the clouds rolled in, but before they did I got the star trails at the top of this post.
