First lawn-mowing of the season

The first lawn mowing of the season is complete. It took me about an hour to mow the front and back yards. There was lots of tall, thick grass from the rain we had, and lots of annoying seed pods from the trees, but I’m done! The yard looks at though it’s received a long-needed haircut. And my hand are stiff from gripping and pushing the mower.

The plan is to read for a little while, write for a while, and then treat myself to the all-new episode of The Office that airs at 9 PM on NBC, before heading off to bed.
