I rounded up this wood thing and plan to use it to hold up my propane bottle on the side of the house. It needed some more support for mounting it so I cut a 2×4 for it and screwed it to the shelf.
I got two coats of paint on it so far. One more I think should do it.
I removed this part of the house to expose the spot where the propane gas goes to my cooking stove as I need to get to the gas pipes here and mount the new tank holder shelf.
That’s all I wanted to do with the shelf project so far so I left it for later.
Moving woodchips with the tractor
I saw my brother’s tractor parked in the yard so I moved woodchips to the raspberry patch using it instead of the wheelbarrow. Much quicker.
I also was watering the raspberry patch as raspberries like water to get lots of big berries.
I moved most of the woodchip pile leaving some to use other places with the wheelbarrow. I think Tom said we have more woodchips coming.
The hard way
I loaded the wheelbarrow with woodchips and moved a couple loads to the chickens mulch run area.
In the evening once the sun was low enough in the sky I started moving woodchips from the chip pile to the raspberry plants with the wheelbarrow. I didn’t get it all done before I tired out but I got enough for now and got a good start on it.
I lofted around chair hopping just before dark enjoying the nice evening.
A Sony AX33 4K, a video camera that takes stills too. What am I doing with that? I take pictures from my Kayak a lot. I found I was missing interesting shots, because my pic was being processed in my camera, before it would let me take another pic. Since I like to take what I call action stills, I bought this camera to take videos, that I could make stills out of, but, as a bonus, this camera also came with buttons to just take stills and that's what I mostly do, unless something is real interesting or too far away for my still zooms. My digilat zoom setting for video goes to two hundred x, and sometimes I need that, but usually, I only use the 10x lens zoom. Because this camera is HD and 4K, the quality has to be real good and it has a lot of stabilizers on it which really helps out a lot for taking pics on the water.
The other thing it has that is a must is a view finder and I had to buy Sony's top of the line cam to get it. This is a must for taking pics on the water, as you must hold the camera as still as posible and putting that eye piece to the eye forms a tripod with your arms that helps a lot. The eye piece is also a must as it works way better than a LED screen to see what you are taking a picture of in the daylight as the LED screens wash out easily in sunlight.
I also have another video camera, a Canon VIXIA G30. I use them both to mostly take stills. The Sony takes higher resolution stills than the G30. That was a bit of a disappointment as I bought the G30 to replace an older camera I dunked in the river, but then had to buy the Sony to get higher still picture resolution that the G30 was lacking.
