I cut the grass this evening when I got home from work. It’s really quite nice out right now. Temperature is hovering around 70 degrees and there is a very pleasant breeze blowing. It smells like coumarin (the chemical that gives freshly cut grass it’s smell) and that fragrence is being carried on the breeze.

No running tonight since I ran last night. I think my shoulder has completely healed however, so I may start up on the pushups again. (I keep saying that, but I seem to avoid actually doing it.)
