Friday was a really intense day of running around at the last minute trying to see to all details before heading out to the cabin to begin what appears to be an endless task of cleaning up after the packrat. It finished with a thunderstorm and the need to run the generator after arguing with the water pump for several hours (the usual refusing to hold its prime problem).

However I did get the SD card out of the wildlife camera and had a look at what it saw over last Winter. There wasn’t much this year: several of the shots were triggered by snowfall which no doubt kept a lot of animals away. Here’s some that came anyway:

Oct 21 2021 – before I’d left for the year. I have no idea who this is.
A moose in the night. There were a lot of moose shots, mostly nocturnal. This was the best of them.
A bear in the evening. 10 days before I came out this time. Must still be around.
Kayaker, taken Saturday the 21st. No idea who it is and the Nikon was not being very co-operative so this is the best out of seven, only 3 of which were even images.

So our Jane is coming up to take the travel trailer away. This will not only free up space in the yard, but will allow me to get at a couple of projects such as running the power line in from the generator shed and eventually putting the brick patio down. Stuff sitting all around here waiting to be used up; last year got interrupted by a detached retina and then running out of time. I barely finished the wood harvest.

Meanwhile, back to cleaning up. One of the projects is redoing the bathroom which not only suffered a lot of water damage way back when I was reroofing the place (Brenda fell and broke her wrist one day – it poured a month’s worth of rain when I took her to the hospital) but also has packrat nests above it which were not improved by the contractor’s failure to repair the ceiling properly. But hey, what’s more work for me right? Well it’s more work for me, right?

Sunshine is erratic so I will probably be using the generator more. That’s expensive electricity!
