Spring cleaning is not just for closets! You may recall that I have an unusual way of cleaning.
Last week, I decided to clean the mold off of the back patio. My tools: water pressure and bleach. It worked before, it should work again. Nope. I poured some bleach in a small area and decided to let it soak in and work its magic.
In the meantime, I would be productive and clean out the gutters. I cleaned a small section and went back to the patio.
Nope still covered in nasty, stubborn mold and grime.
Back to the gutters. I made it half way through one side and headed back to the patio.
Started to focus on water pressure from my little water hose. It worked, a little…
My shoulder was sore from the gutter reacher pole thing and I was dizzy from leaning over to spray the patio at close range.
The only solution at this point:
A long nap and calling a contractor for an estimate on pressure washing. The company with the best bid, also does windows. BONUS!!!!
Tonight I went into the garage to put air in my tires. This is a task that should be done way more than once a year. Especially when you have a slow leak in a tire that no one can find, even after getting new tires. Who knew the dump truck that met me wheel to wheel 4 years ago would leave an undetectable present.
Thank you for following the stream of consciousness. A clear display in how I think and clean.
Once in the garage, I remembered that I needed to check a sprinkler because the grass looked like hay in one area. I turn on the appropriate zone and discover that there is a firehouse level leak out of the side of one of the sprinkler heads. This has apparently resulted in no water reaching the aforementioned desert zone.
Having learned my lesson, I decided I would call a sprinkler repair dude. Well, you have to check the rest of the sprinklers if you are calling in a professional.
Sprinklers checked. Now I am soaked and likely not a good candidate for plugging in an air compressor, or anything to an electrical outlet.
I think it time for a nap…………………….
