Parceling out my energy and hours today: the next of the fence posts to be removed confirmed what I suspected—the rest of them are just as long as the first difficult one, but since they sit higher they aren't buried as deep. In a few minutes I've dug around the next one enough that it already wobbles. One a week will have them all gone before summer is here.
Tomorrow is trash pickup so I have to prune out one more of the large limbs, this time in front, and this time I have a longer pruning blade to use on the reciprocating saw. I cut it into 4' lengths and push all of the pieces into a tall black and decrepit Rubbermaid trash bin. One of these days that bin will have to go with the trash, but I'm still getting some service from it now. If I do a couple of these limbs a week I'll also have this job finished by summer, and by then I look forward to planting some things that need more sun.
The garden also needs attention, so what's left of the day will go to weeding and shaping more beds. And I have to fill the pots with my mix of compost and soil and get a bunch of seeds started. I should have done it weeks ago.
I've had a good start to the alternate-day fasting, and will do the fasting (modified - around 500 calories) at least twice a week. I can be done alternately, but that is a more difficult schedule to stick to.
Rest period over.
