Busy, busy day....

On Monday we managed to clean out the garage.  This is the before:

This is the after:
Dh took a truck load of garbage to the dump, luckily it was light in weight so only cost $8.99 to dispose off. The blue tarps are to go on the log pile to keep it dry and a big one has to go on the garage roof, as we need a new roof, but it will have to wait for another year.  It was too windy on Monday to go on the roof though.

There is now plenty of room in the garage, even with the tractor to park my car inside.  Mind you it helps that I only have half a car!!!!  I am up to 5,750 kilometres on my mileage with my car.  So I am averaging just over 1,000 kilometres a month; no idea where I go?

Monday was a perfect drying day and I took advantage of it with a pile of laundry, which in turn makes plenty of ironing  to do!!  Then I started cutting the grass, which really needed cutting.  Have you noticed how early it starts to get dark now?  I see the leaves are starting to fall as well.  I hope not to have the heating on for another month yet, but we'll see.

Good job! Would you like to come and clean ours out? My husband's work shop has sort of oozed over to the rest of the garage and I have no place for the car. I think that is what our weekend plans are -- the car has to be able to be put up before the weather changes and apparently the weather is changing today!

Great job on the garage! We have to do the same here, and when I say WE, I mean my husband LOL as it is entirely his clutter.

Yes I have noticed how much earlier it has been getting dark in the evenings, and also waking up in the dark in the morning. We have had the gas fireplace on once already to take the chill off. September weather is so up and down.

Good job done. Where does all that stuff come from anyway? I still have a table of odds and ends that must get boxed up and taken to a local charity shop. It's difficult to get cardboard boxes around here.
I don't like the evenings drawing in either, and I have noticed a lot of the trees loosing leaves even before they turn, must be the result of the dry Summer.

If you have time to spare, you can come clean our garage! (Actually you couldn't...we would need more space to actually accomplish the feat. But yours does look better.
