Picking a cold, damp and breezy day to clean the gutters

Cleaningdownspouts171028

Saturday chores consisted of climbing ladders and cleaning out the muck and pine needles from the gutters. Unfortunately I haven’t yet added a screenAnnalynCutie171028 to the downspouts so they of course get block up as well … usually my indicator that is it time to clean them.

Since I boogerred up the elbows this time when grinding the rusted screws off, I use the excuse to run out and pick up a new one at the Home Depot along with some primers that I needed before winter (I’ll wait for a warmer day). A couple other miscellaneous items included some 8-minute gray epoxy (they were out of the normal 5-minute) and 4 gallons of RV antifreeze in order to close the pool. Brenda still wants me to keep it open as she prefers the backyard "blue water" color to a faded black cover.

While I’m at it, I once again can’t resist archiving a couple cute Annalyn photo from Katelyn and Drew … can she get any cuter (ani gif below)?
