I put out all three bins for collection: yard waste, recycling (it's a split cart, paper in one side, plastic/metal/glass in the other), and trash. It took till late afternoon for the recycling to be picked up, so meanwhile after doing some gardening I baled up some cardboard boxes from the garage and propped them against the cart.
Cooler today, and the air was forecast to be less ozone-filled. So I mowed the backyard. Meanwhile the extension that was put onto a house over the back fence is having yet more added to it; they must have discovered another six square inches of the yard they hadn't roofed over. Constant racket of power tools: construction hereabouts seems to involve smoking drills and giant staplers.
