Nothing significant to report for this month.
San Antonio House: Lawn mowed and some trimming done.
The Ranch: The shed is empty. We brought in a couple tractor implements — the easy ones. Four more to go. After fixing the wiring on the deer feeder controller — those rascally racoons are too clever for their own good, the deer (and other wildlife) census is underway.
The Store: Mowed
The Detail Shop: Mowed, pruned, and one window replaced.
The Shop: The white car trailer has been emptied of car parts. Identification and tagging of car parts is underway. So is general pick up and put away.
The Central TX House: Basic yard work is done.
One would think while I was spending lots of recliner time recovering from this cracked patella that I would have at least put this post together and published it on time. I’m backdating it to Thursday, so don’t think you missed it if you’re only first seeing it on Saturday.
San Antonio House: The HVAC system installation is complete, and it passed the city inspection.
The Ranch: Nothing this month.
The Store: Nothing this month
The Detail Shop: Nothing this month.
The Shop: The white car trailer made it safely to and from Mississippi last month. Mr. L emptied the yellow trailer of car parts and is sorting and repacking them at the shop.
The Central TX House: Mr. L has finished putting primer on the new back steps. I had many plans for winter yard work, but they’ve all been delayed while I make sure my cracked patella heals.
San Antonio House: I vacuumed and bagged the leaves, trimmed two dead branches from the red oak, trimmed the part of the alley hedge hanging inside the back fence, and dragged everything to the back for our amazing trash guys to haul away. I also trimmed the fig tree. Did a bathroom cleaning, vacuumed floors, and got all the trash out before returning to Central Texas. I also monitored the installation of a new HVAC system.
The Ranch: We trimmed the road access and removed the white enclosed car trailer from the ranch. While I trimmed, Mr. L used his yard tractor and trailer to move 100 landscaping bricks up to the house site to make extraction from the ranch easier. He also retrieved the culvert and brought it back to town.
The Store: Got the store mowed.
The Detail Shop: The new windows are here but not installed yet. The expanded fence is installed and gives us much more lockable storage in the space between the detail shop building and the shop.
The Shop: Mr. L has been doing a little reorganizing here. The white car trailer is in the shop bay now to make tire replacement easier. He’s also troubleshooting the electrical system.
The Central TX House: I did run the lawn mower with bagger over the lawn and gathered something like 20 bags of leaves. It took the trash guys three weeks to get it all hauled away. Not much happening here at the moment. That’s not to say there isn’t a lot to do.
You won’t see much new here. When I mow the Central TX house, I’ll have the bagger on the back to catch as many leaves as possible.
San Antonio House: Nothing new here.
The Ranch: 2016 Wildlife Management Report completed and submitted.
The Store: It’s been too wet to mow.
The Detail Shop: Too wet to mow. Ordered new windows.
The Shop: Mr. L has been doing a little reorganizing here as he can.
The Central TX House: Zelda has been spayed and vaccinated. Nick has been neutered and vaccinated. I’m petting Daisy while she eats Fancy Feast, trying to earn her trust.
We’ve been mostly out of town since September. San Antonio House: The lawn has been mowed. The Ranch: Picked up the game cameras. Hogs, raccoons, cardinals, blackbirds, opossum, one or two errant cows, yearling deer, a spotted fawn, and lots of bobcat sightings. The Store: It’s been too wet to … Continue reading →
We’re kind of treading water here. San Antonio House: Mr. L got the lawn mowed during his last trip down there. I am doing yard work this week, beginning with cutting up fallen limbs and trimming the alley hedge. The Ranch: Nothing. I still need to get out to pick … Continue reading →
We’re working on things a little at a time. Here’s this month’s progress. San Antonio House: Mr. L got the lawn mowed during his last trip down there. I won’t be making the three house drive until next month, when I plan to do yard work. The Ranch: Nothing. I … Continue reading →
Even though I’ve done nothing for the last month due to recuperating from my knee surgery, Mr. L has been busy. Here’s what he’s been up to. San Antonio House: Mr. L made a quick trip down to pick up mail. I think he did a little watering while he … Continue reading →
What a month. Here’s the latest on the Property Update, June 2016. I had a few things to get ready before my knee replacement next week, but everything is what it is. San Antonio House: I made a quick trip down last Saturday to get one last mow in before … Continue reading →
