Volunteer work

Woke early and prepared to go to Caboolture and join the Wy-Wurry walkers around Centenary Lakes. Arriving at 6.40am, I was 15 minutes early, but gave me a chance to set up and take an early morning photo.

The rest of the group arrived and then set off for the 5km walk. After the walk, went to a coffee shop, had my customary long black and then headed home.

Had to fill my prescription for my PTSD medications and decided to go to Terry White Chemist at Burpengary to get it filled. While there, thought it a good idea to do some shopping. After making my purchases and ensuring I had bought enough for the family, went home.

At home a I gathered the washing and put it in the washing machine. I then noticed I had forgotten one thing – soap powder. Have enough here for a couple of loads, but hope there is no more to wash pending replacement of said soap powder.

After getting the washing going, Sue announced that she and the kids were going to the movies. That means I will have to walk to Bushcare.

After lunch, gathered my tools into my backpack and went off to Bushcare. I had a number of cheques to deliver to Andy as well so decided to call in on the way. After 3 km, I arrived at Andy’s and dropped off the cheques. Then we walked the 1.5 km to bushcare.

At bushcare it was a case of pulling up broad-leaved pepper seedlings and then start cutting down the more mature trees, which we had started the month before. As Andy and I were cutting the trees down the stumps were dabbed with glyphosate weed killer by the council staff member.
One hour and a half later it was time to review our work and pack up. Then Andy and I walked the 1.5 km to his place, and I continued on home.

At home, it was time to study and ready myself for tomorrow’s walk. I then watched the Olympics and then went to bed.
