Hope that gets better but sometimes it just takes a while.

yeah... i survived mowing but i only did the front ditch. all the south area i used to mow i didn't touch at all yet. not sure i'm going to bother with it unless the thistles look to be growing. so far they've not poked up too much - i kept them chopped back right at ground level last year...

being impatient and want to get going on projects. :) it helps a lot to get some of the bigger things done before it gets too hot and planting season arrives. this year i doubt i'll be doing much of that other than the minimum just to get the gardens planted.

i was able to get outside and wash the windows yesterday. today i'll be inside so i can wash them. it's much harder to do them inside because i can't use the squeegee and there's more stuff in the way.

perfect spring weather (70-75F and some sunny and rainy days). perhaps i can get the first peas and beans planted (a few weeks later than normal).

more rains here, it's very soggy and muddy in the gardens. looks like the whole week is going to be off-and-on chances of more rains.

my sister is visiting and we went for a walk the other day. maybe about a mile and a half total. i'm normally a fairly fast walker but this time i was walking slower and also when we got back i was a bit winded, but it was still good to get out and move.

We're having several days of possible scattereds, too. Got about 1/2" last night in a good 2 hr rain. 👍. We were surface dry down a couple inches, so needed it.
