My weekend is packed full of chores both indoors and outside.
The walls, ceilings, fans, and HVAC vents need to be dusted at least once a month because I live in a particularly dusty environment.
Since we’re in the rainy season, the lawn needs to be cut weekly to avoid getting tickets from the city. I learned this the hard way when I was 22 and living with a bunch of friends in a house that was walking distance away from downtown. It was a great location for us because we could easily party, but we received complaints all of the time from neighbors and locals that would drive through the area on our street. After the third lawn ticket, I resolved to make sure it was always cut, even if I had to do it myself. Now that I live alone, there’s no one else to keep the lawn cut besides me, so it was good practice years ago. However, perhaps the most important outdoor chore I have this week is installing a new fence around my marijuana garden. My cannabis plants give off pleasant aromas that attract deer from all over. The deer like to eat the premature cannabis flower buds before the flowers even get a chance to fully bloom. That’s why it’s so important to have a fence around your marijuana plants if you choose to grow some of your own. I’m nowhere near as good as the growers that work for my local cannabis dispensary, but at least I can grow supplemental weed so I’m not reliant on the stuff from the dispensary.
