Yard work

It’s another beautiful day in Maryland today and my intent was to spend as much time outside as possible. To that end, I just finished 3 hours worth of yard work where I raked and bagged 17 bags worth of leaves and other accumulated junk. That was just the front and side yard. I still need to do the backyard but I need a lunch break. The front yard looks great, however, and I’m pleased I got as much done as I did.

I’m going to wash my car at some point this weekend, and I also have some bamboo to cut up so that it can be picked up on Monday, but right now I’m starving and could go for some lunch.

I listened to nearly 60 songs during the 3 hours it took me to do the front yard.
