Solved the painting problem by only buying stone or brick houses. I do hate to paint.
Spent a good bit of last two years landscaping around new house, in particular solving some drainage issues where after heavy rains way too much water came close to house. Dug some drainage troughs at the edge of the property to divert water to storm drains. This cut sump pump run time way down.
Next fun project, chimney sweep before the fall. Have brush will sweep. This time remember to wear a face mask. Don't care for the smell of creosote in the morning.
Firewood is cut and stacked, that's another off the list.

Planned to go kayaking this morning, somehow 55 degrees in August is not conducive to that, though in October 55 feels warm on the water. Nice part of being retired, unless conditions fit the mood, I'll pass on the activity.
