Rob, you sound like a very busy guy. I imagine these are all things you have to do to get ready for spring.

You have beautiful scenery to photograph.

I agree with Beth there, I wish I could map my day like that but my life isn't so ordered, though I think it would be a good exercise.
I do love the pic at the header.
Thanks for dropping by and leaving a comment.

Rob, I read with great interest everything, especially your meals. Do you eat anything between meals? Sorry to ask. You work all day, and you MUST get hungry.
