Round one of fall cleanup: Getting rid of all the leaves in my yard. Took three trips with the Expedition filled up this far with leaves. It is literally filled to the brim, only space left is for the wife in the passenger seat otherwise I would have filled that too. Will likely have to do one more round of cleanup before I can call it good for the winter.

Do you take it to the dump or something? No curbside service?

City has a giant compost site, free to use for residents.

We are offered curbside yard waste disposal through our trash company but there's no way this much sh1t would have fit into the curbside bin anyway. The compost site is ~6 miles from my house so it's not a huge deal for me to haul it down there. Not worth paying for curbside when I only do this much yard waste hauling 2-3 times a year.

Finished up the landscape lighting around our new patio. Monday morning was beautiful here, so I finally took some pics.

Budman: any noticeable difference? I think I might do that to my garage door as well.

TB: beautiful patio! DIY or hired out?

Thanks, appreciate the kind words. I designed it but had a firm put most of it in. Decided I needed my back this summer Then stained the adirondack chairs, landscaped (seeded lawn, planted Japanese Maple, mulched), found and placed the firepit, had new french doors put in and installed the landscape lighting which is all LED and sourced from

www.landscapelightingworld.com

Been doing alot of fires lately!

Not sure yet. . The weather got cooler here after I put it on. It was down in the 50s this weekend and felt comfy inside the garage. Need to test the Temps I guess

Cool. If you think of it, post back later this winter and lmk if you feel a noticeable difference. I might give it a go myself. Mind if I ask the roundabout cost and ease of installation?

I'm guessing his "winter" will be quite a bit different than yours. Here in the tundra, that insulation wouldn't do jack sh1t.

Also, our high temperature later this week is below 50F so "got cooler here" does not apply.

There were about 5 different layers of material behind the tile surround. Only thing left to do is install blinds
