I shot a great many photos this week but they are exceedingly dull as they are primarily of the garage as reference photos for placement of the electrical outlets and power box once the garage is rebuilt; documenting the state of the driveway (potted plants, crap that was once in the garage, the damn pile of tree branches I've been trying to get rid of for the past three years (too thick to cut up with my loppers and unsuitable for hitting with an axe (particularly after the incident when I damn near swung the axe blade into my leg)); and the wall of plants that sprung up behind and next to the garage when I wasn't looking. I managed to clear a path to the first of my three compost bins on Sunday -- and it took a full five hours to cut my way through the twenty or so feet from the edge of the walkway to the first bin. I have also never seen so much deadly nightshade in my life. It has such pretty flowers but boy oh boy is that stuff invasive and hard to kill.

jebra went off to work Convocation (a small literary convention) over the weekend. Besides cleaning up the backyard and taking boring photos, I also went on three short Ingress missions, one at the Troy Library, one in downtown Clawson, and at the National Shrine of the Little Flower Basilca here in Royal Oak. That mission was a little more challenging than the other two as it required answering a bunch of questions about the site and I caught in a sudden downpour. I attempted a fourth mission on Monday, while the FCB played their final concert of the season. The band played in downtown Farmington and I thought I'd picked a mission that would be in earshot of the concert. I wasn't completely correct in how far the music would travel but I completed about 70% of the mission before discovering that the final three stops were more than 2 kilometers from downtown. So I gave up and returned to the pavilion for the remainder of the concert.
