Performed maintenance on a neighbor's car yesterday....nothing new.

However, I didn't go (or dispatch the owner) to the auto parts store as usual.

Except for the cabin air filter, I used supplies from my stash.

Paring down the shelf space dedicated to car stuff is a goal and I'm "3 cars" into it. I feel better.

Maybe it's a "corona-confinement" thing but clearing the decks has been on my mind for some time.

I replaced the secondary mower belt on the tractor because it snapped on my wife earlier in the week yesterday, washed and waxed the truck today, and got the weed eater up and running again.

Let my oldest play in the mud I created while washing the truck, the youngest just wanted to hang out with me.

Luckily my deck is composite, maybe a little pressure wash otherwise it looks great!

Oh, and I tested the limited slip diff on the truck. It works.

I see a lot of people doing stuff I always do/have done. Are you just listing normal activities, or has your estate been in disrepair in this way in some ongoing lifestyle of neglect?
