Batteries are replaced in the UPS and the old ones will be recycled later this week. Replacing them costs about 1/3 the amount of replacing the whole unit (and no point in replacing it when it otherwise works perfectly well). I see a lot of these at the thrift store, probably when people don't know about replacing batteries.

Since I had to move equipment around to do this I rearranged before plugging it all in again. The printer is now where I can reach it to use the sheet feeder and easier to fill the paper drawer. And it makes the old computer and that equipment easier to work with. Having a well-running office with this much stuff is a work-in-progress.

The glider on the front porch makes the space seem smaller than before, but it's nicely placed to view the yard and street and I dozed off for a few minutes in the sun this afternoon. There is a small tarp with two corner grommets tied to the back legs of the glider (good use of old sneaker shoelaces from the junk drawer) to flip over the top and front when not in use.

I need to transplant one batch of asparagus and transplant a redbud seedling to a pot for a little while before putting it in the front where the huge pine was removed. Redbud is a smaller understory tree with lovely heart-shaped leaves and is one of the earliest bloomers in the spring.
