I obtained an extension ladder, so now I can fix the woodpecker hole in my wall after the chicks leave.
I will also replace the shingles that the wind blew off my roof as soon as the pain in my arthritic knees eases enough for me to climb the ladder.
I have been barely able to walk for the last two days. I don't think I can make it up the ladder right now. But I am really looking forward to getting up on the hot roof and nailing down roof shingles (not).
