Monday, Monday....

6:49 am - Tuesday - November 19th - Ramona, CA - 53° F, 45% humidity, wind 5 mph out of the east by northeast....high clouds today with a forecast high of 76° F....rain on the way this afternoon.......

 Taken on our morning hike today....first time I've caught 
the skies just before sunrise
Up above the water tank

I began Monday riding my new to me Haibike SDURO up to the microwave tower, and then down the wonderful downhill we have here at RORVR.  The bike was much more comfortable with the minor changes I made.....I love the new ergonomic grips!

With the moderate Santa Ana winds this weekend came a pool full of leaves, once again, so you know what I spent my morning Monday doing, right? Right.  It took me until 11:45 am to finish the pool, then it was up to the horseshoe pits to put them back in order after a weekend of heavy use, and then down to the mini golf holes.  Apparently they were heavily used also, and out of 14 golf balls provided for our customers' use just 5 remained.  Keep in mind, these are 'USED' golf balls, so why are they not returning them?  Anyway, that took me up to lunch time.

After lunch I headed back to the barn area to replace a wooden post which someone had backed into and broken over the weekend.  The post held two signs, one warning about the wild life, including rattle snakes, and a second advising 'No vehicle travel beyond this point', as well as had a hook to which the one end of the chain blocking the fire road was attached.  I replaced the 4"x 4" post with a 4"x 6" post, dug the hole about 12" deeper than the prior hole, and had the signs reattached, as well as the chain by 2 pm.

I spent the rest of my shift working in the 'backyard' (the area between the tool shed and maintenance building) picking up where I left off last Thursday.  I finished my day not quite finished with the 'backyard' work, but I should be done within a couple of days.  There are still a lot of leaves to remove, and a new fuel station to build.  Right now all of our gas cans (used for our truck, as well as lawnmowers, leaf blowers, string trimmers, and chainsaws) sit on pavers on the ground.  There is a pop up shelter over them to keep the rain, and weather off of them. To access the gas cans one must spend a couple of minutes in the bent over position transferring gas from the large 5 gallon gas cans to smaller 2 gallon gas cans, or you can kneel on the ground.  I'm going to move a cabinet out of the shed over to the outside wall of the tool shed to hold the gas cans, and build a rain deflector over it so we can refuel standing up, not bent over, or kneeling on the ground.

That was my day.....thanks for stopping by!
