My outdoor list of things to do

I need to profit from the good weather.

I have things I need to do outside and I would like to do them before the weather gets cold and to the point that I abhor doing them.

The pond is covered but not winterized. The pump and filter are in and it would behoove me to get them removed and get the pond hole heaters in place. Better that than lose the beautiful fish that I have.

I bought bulbs and I need to plant those as well.

The things I need to put away and/or winterize that are secondary on my list of things to do are far easier to accomplish. I have rain barrels that need to be turned over, hoses that need to be rolled up and put in the garage, and furniture that needs to be put into the garage and covered up.

The mums that we bought to decorate for the fall are going to be planted with the hope that they might survive the winter. Some do and some don’t and I think that it depends on where I planted them. The ones that I plant near the house tend to do better, it must be the warmth of the house or the protection it provides.

I also thought that I might even get crazy enough to put the Christmas lights up as they are just lights that will not be connected until the season begins, but having them set to go might be a good idea.

Procrastinating can happen and, in fact, my even writing about it is procrastinating, lol.

Okay, I have been to the gym, I need some food as sustenance, and then I am off to the yard!
