My arms are sore today. And that's because of all the work I did yesterday.
Yesterday was such a nice day that I decided to see if some yard work can be done. My dad wasn't at work for once, so we started cleaning up the front yard. Though getting the riding mower's battery recharged ended up draining the truck's battery, but thankfully my car was still here and we jumped the truck off, kept it running, and recharged both batteries.
I got to learn how to work the weed eater and I attacked the grass around the planters, the edge of the house, and the tiny sand hills dad couldn't mow. Thankfully I did remember to put sunscreen on about thirty minutes so my face is only a little bit redder than normal. We had a ton of clover that was trimmed yesterday.
The yard looks so much better. Its starting to look like someone lives here. I helped work on it for four hours yesterday and boy was I tired and hurting afterward. I did try to keep moving so my muscles wouldn't stiffen up. I think that helped cause I did feel much better later that night, and today is better than I was thinking.
Hopefully this upcoming weekend will be the same nice weather so we can finish up the backyard.
Oh! Besides my dad's car breaking down on Saturday (and we just found out today that boy is that repair bill going to be expensive!!), they bought an aircard
that day before the car trouble. It's rather neat. We have a cell tower about a mile away and I can get great signal on the card. It's 3G. :D
The downside I see, besides the bill at $60 a month, is the 5GB a month data cap it has. So far I'm just borrowing it to visit things that a high speed connection is required. It's cooperating so far on mom's machine. Though I've had to fix the firewall to allow it twice. On my machine it loaded easily. I had it up and running in minutes. They're going to try it out for 30 days and make their decision before that. But its the only thing that has worked so far for broadband.
