See-saw Continues, and what Nature Abohors

You will have admired the saw-work
You saw me perform near the pool;
Indeed, I have added there maw work —
That I stomach it, am I a fool?

But new branch I have now created
With technology’s most cutting edge
In defence of fence otherwise fated
No longer to act as a hedge.

The trees were just getting too eager,
And pushing top wood from the wall,
If that part they went on to beleaguer,
No dog screen would be there at all.

And so I have two sites in progress:
The clearing at pool carries on
And this will continue till no mess
Is seen on the scene; all is gone.

But now there will also be clearing
The top part of fence as I’ve said
Though with all this enterprise, nearing
Becoming right out of my head.

And now just to add to my workload
Comes vacuum cleaner that died,
And I was unable to shirk load
Of finding the problem inside.

Connection now well re-connected,
It sucks — as a vacuum should —
Now back to branch matters deflected . . . ?
No, can’t, no more day, so no good!

    Feel bad now 😂 not 😋

    The joys of home ownership . . . experiencing similar (but not the same).

    On the other hand, it’s nice finding out one’s own handiness in the face of many small and large challenges.

    Good going with that vacuum cleaner. I probably would’ve just resorted to a broom.
