The backyard is a whole lot cleaner. The woodpile (of the offending screw I stepped on) is gone and in it's place is 10 or so garbage bags filled with wood pieces.
I have all five posts up for the stairs. Next up is the railing. Then continue painting the foundation.
On the health front, there is a muscle (hamstring) that runs from my butt under my knee that is aching and makes sitting uncomfortable. I think it is also not helping my knee. Am working on getting that less tense. Always something to do.
