Thanks to a funky Gorilla ladder borrowed from seity1, I climbed up and cleaned out most of my gutters this evening after work. I was able to reach the gutter in front of the garage and along the whole back of the house with no trouble, using the ladder as a six-foot stepladder. Most of the front of the house is too high, though, so I'll need to unfold it and lean it against the house. I'd rather do that with a spotter around, so I'll save the front for another time.
After that, I raked the front yard again before making some macaroni and cheese with tuna for dinner. Simple for a change. :-)
