Well...that means lots of work! Lots of good, hot, dirty, sweaty work!
I sound excited, don't I?
To be honest, I really do like working out of doors, hard and steady. I think I've done pretty good at that so far this week, even though the temperatures have sneaked up into the low 90's and the humidity has peeked a little (though still not humid like Florida).
Monday morning I helped Mum do some weeding in the garden. Or rather "scuffle hoeing". The goal was to get all the crab grass out before the expected rain later this week. She has been working on that steady for the last couple of days...I have really only helped with that Monday when I did two rows (I did much more than that on Saturday however! Sunday my left wrist was rather painful.)
Monday afternoon I spent bouncing around on the lawn mower. I really can't make that sound overly exciting. I didn't even "almost take my head off on a tree branch", so I cannot regale you with that tale!
Once I got done mowing, I raked up the grass and rebuilt the compost pile I had created last Saturday. I remembered to cover it with a tarp this time. That keeps the heat in and the rain out and causes the stuff to rot down faster.
Tuesday morning (I guess that was yesterday), well...I'm drawing a blank on what I did in the morning....but I do remember being outside. I spent the afternoon indoors, playing my guitar for a good portion of it. I was pleased to find out that I could manage to play with the brace on my left wrist.
Today...that was spent mainly behind the string trimmer. First I did the rhubarb patch, then sprawled on to the rest of the places that needed doing. Late this afternoon I flipped my compost pile...
But anyway...have some pictures from my week:
