No more snow or ice. Which means it’s time to deal with the lawn and the hedge and the flowers. So, today (So far… it isn’t 10 am yet) has pretty much started my “Normal” Summer Routine.
The castle has been stormed, the steed tended, the loot stowed….and the jungle conquered.
Actually, I mowed the lawn Tuesday night, after my Darling Brother changed the spark plug in the lawnmower. Theoretically, I COULD do it…I bought the right plug. But he has the proper tools, I don’t. Today, I got the hedge and trimming done after putting away the groceries. And this tells me something: I am in MUCH better shape than I was a year ago. My legs and back don’t hurt at all, or feel any strain. My forearms are shaky, but my hands aren’t protesting the typing. I may make some changes in the flower gardens. (May wait until fall to actually do any of that, tho)
