Really nice day out! Supposed to get up around 80 degrees! Cool! So, after making the Mail Run I figured that I might as welll get started early, while it was still somewhat cool, and started up my one whack weeder and whack weeded the Dogâ€™s poop yard. Oh, Joy. Think Iâ€™ll start up my old rider-mower and do some mowing. Have to do a walk-around first and pick up all the fallen branches from our last storms.
Man, we already have a butt-ton of wasps around here! So far the best attractant Iâ€™ve ever found (flat Dr. Pepper) isnâ€™t working. Guess it hasnâ€™t been hot enough to make the wasps thirsty enough; I donâ€™t know.
Wouldnâ€™t you know! Was laying out and got stung by a wasp. Back of my left leg just above the knee. Good thing Iâ€™m not allergic! Painful though. Made my left leg kind of cramp up on the back. Didnâ€™t last long. Rubbed some vinegar on the sting and it quit hurting within a couple of minutes. But, still.
Did the walk-around but wasnâ€™t able to keep the old rider-mower running. I swear, if it involves a internal combustion engine I just canâ€™t make it work. Well, other than the one whack weeder; and that took a shot of either to get it started.
Spent as much time outside today as I could. Moved some things around that Iâ€™ve been meaning to move all winter. Started moving things out of the way (meaning: finally putting things away) so I can just mow when I pick my new rider-mower up tomorrow. Decided to take my old rider-mower over to my friends and let him fix it up and sell it if he can. Weâ€™ll just split however much he gets for the thing. Gets it out of my way too.
And thatâ€™s really pretty much it. Still tired cause I didnâ€™t get a whole lot of sleep last night. Was doing okay until 0200 when the Renter started up his loud damn car and let it idle for 10-15 minutes. Finally got back to sleep only to have him come back around 0310. Damn, heâ€™s got a loud car!
SWMBO should be home in less than an hour. Nice!
