Bear With Me

StumpI spent most of the day today working in the garden and mowing the back 40.

Gidget spent a few hours yesterday working in the garden and I helped her as long as I could. I don’t do well in the heat, especially in the direct sunlight, but I got five rows done so she can just turn on the hose and the garden will water itself.

As I recovered from the heat, I worked on “the project” for a while, and then I went back outside and started mowing the backyard. The battery is dead in the riding mower, but I am able to jump start it with the truck, so it’s not all bad.

As you know, our air conditioner is out, with a nice hole in the main line. As we wait for the builder to repair the unit (it’s covered under our home warranty), we purchased a window air conditioner from Wal-Mart for $100. Let me tell you something. Our living room is just as cool with that thing running. It’s nice to have while we wait.

Now, I am going back into the pit to work on “the project”. I was hoping to have it done tonight, but that just wasn’t going to happen.
