Putzed around the house this morning and didn't put anything out at the curb for pickup, but I have two bins now stuffed with limbs that were on top of the old compost pile. Those will go to the curb on Monday. Now to get out the safety googles and use the string trimmer to take out the tall grass that grew up around the compost, before I start trying to move it all into one large pile. Much of the oldest of them will go by the wheelbarrow-full out to the garden.
It's over 80o right now, still rather warm for this time of year, and cooling off tomorrow some. I've had to come in to get my big tankard of water and ice that I keep nearby during yard work on hot days.
Dorothy, I use a Google calendar (tied to one of my gmail accounts) and it feeds into my phone, so I can enter things while I'm working at the computer or when I'm somewhere and need to make a quick reminder on the phone. I tend to find it easier to add things using the phone.
I agree with you about "giving back" to the neighborhood. I get out and visit with people in their yards to catch up, and the ones closest around me I take over garden produce or food. They're always good about letting me know if the garage door was left open or something forgotten in the yard. This is a big favor!
